A sex scene in ‘Game of Thrones’. The girl you’ve crushed on forever. Or that hottie in ‘Baywatch’. When none of this can get you to stand up (you know what we mean), it’s time you pay attention. But wait, don’t let it get so far.

Erectile dysfunction is not only an old man’s problem. Men in the prime of their life can also have trouble making it larger than a Lilliputian.

You thought it’s only an old man’s problem? You’re wrong! 
So isn’t it time you found out what causes that rocket to stop taking off?

Here are some causes of erectile dysfunction you better know about!

Several lifestyle issues like alcohol abuse, smoking, diabetes, stress and drug abuse can cause Little Johnny to remain little.

Speaking to The Quint, Dr Anshuman Agarwal, Senior Consultant Urologist with Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, said:

Stress is a major cause of erectile dysfunction, especially in young adults. Lifestyle issues like smoking, excessive drinking and drug abuse can also cause erectile dysfunction.

If you eat too much junk food and sweets or if you have diabetes knocking on your door, Little Johnny may refuse to rise to the occasion.

So, beware men! Take care of your sexual health and it’ll take care of you.
