Unfortunately, the information provided at this stage is very limited, and it is difficult to interpret and make conclusions.I request you to post the following details:
At this stage, I would like to inform you that thyroid is mostly not responsible for erectile dysfunction, and we need to explore additional reasons for same. I am not sure about your age, but if you are above 50 years, you are requested to get the following blood reports if not acquired already.
Erectile dysfunction is a complex disorder and needs a thorough evaluation for treatment. I look forward to seeing more details.
My age is 45 years. The problem started in a few months back. Sometimes the problem does not bother me, but sometimes it does. Regarding the progress of the erectile dysfunction, it has increased. The duration of sexual activity is about 5 to 10 minutes. The frequency of the problem is about once a week. The factors that contribute to increasing the problem of erectile dysfunction is a little bit of fear of not performing. Factors that relieve the problem are thoughts other than sexual intercourse. I get morning erection. The frequency of erection is maybe three or four times. I am married and have two children. My wife's age is 38 years. I suffered from digestive disorder last year. Thyroxine 50 mg is the only medication which I am taking. I have not yet tried any medication for my problem. Thank you in advance.

Thanks for reverting. After reviewing the information provided, I feel that psychogenic components are more important for your erectile dysfunction and need to be evaluated. Presence of night and morning time erection (when no fear of performance) indicates that fear is one of the main contributors to your problem. I like to stress out that it does not mean other factors are not present. To rule out the possibility of other factors, I had requested few investigations which need to be carried out.
Regarding psychological causes, I would like to inform you that this is the most common cause of erectile dysfunction. It means that our thinking is the main reason for not getting a full erection. Many people develop it following an occasional failure in the bedroom. Once there is a failure due to one or another reason, so much significance is attached by the concerned person to the failure that hurts one's ego. Once the problem has started, there is no relief till the person introspects or gets help. I recommend the following:
