Viagra, a Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5)
inhibitor works by blocking the effects of PDE5 enzyme in our blood
which breaks down the blood vessel relaxing agent, cGMP.
The Anatomy of an Erection and Nitric Oxide (NO)
In the penis, the blood
vessels are in a constant “contracted” state. In
order for an erection to occur,
the blood vessels must relax.
2. Role of Nitric Oxide (NO): When sexually aroused, NO activates cGMP. As the smooth muscles in
the blood vessels walls
relax, blood flow increases resulting in a hard erection.
3. Subsequently, PDE5 enzyme in the
penis degrades the cGMP. As
a result the penis returns to the flaccid
A number of factors contribute to ED. Vascular issues account
for the majority of
ED. As we
age, the production of NO decreases.
In addition, with time, diet and other health issues such as diabetes,
blood vessels in the penis get clogged. Consequently,
when aroused the blood vessels
can not dilate as fully resulting in softer, shorter lasting erections.
