How Does Viagra Work?

So you want to know how Viagra works when taken?

Viagra helps men that are suffering with erectile dysfunction by helping to increase the flow of blood to the penis when the man feels sexual arousal.

Although many believe that Viagra is an orally taken medication that instantly results in the patient experiencing an erection, that is not the case as it requires the person that has taken the tablet to enter into a state of sexual arousal.

The reason that sexual arousal is required is that there are a number of processes within the male anatomy that happen in order to obtain an erection and maintain strength within that erection for an adequate amount of time and Viagra is not created to be able to replicate all of those processes.

When a man becomes aroused, the brain releases hormones that are pushed towards the soft tissue surrounding the penis in order to allow them to aid them to relax, creating a situation of increased blood flow being able to fill the penis and produce an erection.

When a male suffers from erectile dysfunction (impotence) this process is restricted and that in turn then results in the male being unable to either become erect or maintain an erection long enough to be able to enjoy sexual experiences.
