This may be psychological.
Any stress or anxiety, social changes lately? Are you out of shape? Sometimes working out can help with both anxiety and keeping erection. If you are not in shape, discuss other health issues with your primary doc, such as diabetes or hypertension. Best of luck!

In brief: See your Dr

At your age, ed suggests significant underlying medical issue if not suffering from sleep deprivation / stress / exhaustion (or a combination of all of these).
