There are many causes leading to erectile dysfunction.  This can include vascular causes, metabolic disease, or psychogenic etiologies.  

You can consider blood tests looking for diabetes, thyroid disease or a low testosterone level.  An ultrasound can evaluate blood flow to the penis.

If there are no overt diseases present, medications like Viagra can be considered to help improve blood flow to the penis.

These options can be discussed with your personal physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
