In brief: Many possibilities

Sorry but i can't figure out if you're female (patty) or male.
Regardless, inability to sustain an erection is known as impotence or erectile dysfunction. This is common in men as we age, especially if our lifestyle choices are not ideal, eg smoking excess alcohol, etc. Obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, depression can cause ed. So can medications. Time to go see family doc.
