Mechanism of action:
The erection of penis mainly occurs because of its engorgement with blood. Blood vessels is responsible for delivering of blood to and from the penis. During sexual stimulation, nitric oxide is produced and released in the penis that is actually known to activate guanylate enzyme. This enzyme produces cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) that is mainly responsible for erection. This is done affecting the amount of blood that the blood vessels delivers and remove from the penis.
Another enzyme posphodiesterase-5 also gets inhibited by sildenafil and thus cGMP is destroyed. This leads to its accumulation and its longer persistent, that in turn results in prolonged engorgement of the penis.
