Viagra How Does It Work

Blood is carried through the penis by arteries. Usually the blood enters the sponge like chambers inside the penis (called the Corpora Cavernosa) this causes the penis to stiffen (an erection.)

A high majority or erection problems are physical rather that mental. Most are caused by by poor flow to the penis.

Erection problems caused by poor blood flow

Sildenfil Citrate (the drug) works by increasing blood flow to the penis. This causes the penis to become harder and stay harder longer allowing the penis to stay in an erect state for up to 4 hours.

When ejaculation happens and arousal lessens, blood will drain away returning the penis to its flaccid state.
