Erectile dysfunction, what could have caused it? ?

One day I was having sex everyday and sometimes twice a day with my girlfriend. Then the next day, like completely out of nowhere I couldn't maintain an erection. I can get hard but not enough for penetration. This scares me cause I'm only 25 years old and although I workout a lot I've never took any steroids or anything of that sort. If I have to get surgery down there or something crazy just happened where I can get it fixed I don't mind but my fear comes in where I don't want to have to rely on taking pills my whole life just to have sex. Been dealing with this for 3 months now and my hospital takes so long to bring me information (VA hospital). Does anyone know what causes this and permanent cures for it?

    You said nothing about your health status.

    It's hilarious how kids like you take everything for granted, and assume that regardless what lifestyle you live, that your sex life will always be good. But that's not the way it works. If you are eating a diet high in junk food, with lots of grease and sugar and sodas, you're not going to be in great health. If you don't exercise daily oh, you're not going to be in great health. If your sleep habits are bad, you're not going to be in good health. Think about all three of these things and make an assessment and see what lifestyle changes you need to make.
