New to Paroxetine, Side effect question

Hi, I have just been prescribed Paroxetine and was wondering how sever the side effect of sexual disorders are? I have read that its common to have lower sex drive which I would probably welcome a bit of a decrease in that... I did also see that erectile dysfunction was common, how bad or common is this? I'm 36 and married and whilst at present my sexdrive is much higher than my wife (hence the welcome of a reduction) how bad is it likely to get with maintaining or achieving erection?
