I've answered this question or a very similar one earlier today.  Your loss of erections does suggest a possible venous leak, but this is relatively uncommon in your age group.  Also, the low libido suggests either a low testosterone level or some type of depression.  

Venous leak is not "serious" nor is it "untreatable" and we don't even know for sure if you have it or not.  Talk to your local physician about your situation.
