ED and affects on fertility

I am new here and am afraid my husband has ED. We have been ttc a child for a while now. We have been charting my ovulation. Does anyone know what the affects of ED are on male fertility? Your responses are appriciated. (He has an appt with his doctor in 2 weeks) Thank you.

If he has problems getting an erection that would reduce the chances of being about to have intercourse and deposit the ejaculate into the vagina so that creates a huge hurdle. ED medications can have negative impacts on sperm production and quality so that might not be the best answer but if it is the only option he does need an erection for natural conception. Has he had this problem before the two of you started trying to get pregnant? Often the pressure of having to perform on a certain day can cause ED. Sex becomes a job not fun and games. ED can be psychological. ED can also be a result of other underlying health problems. Sorry for the delay in response and please let us know how his doctor appointment turns out.

Having ED does not mean he has any problems with his sperm production but to answer this question have his doctor order a semen analysis.
