Erectile dysfunction can be defined as a medical problem in which men fails to achieve or maintain erections that are firm enough to have satisfactory sexual intercourse. A man is said to be suffering from erectile dysfunction only when he persistently experience a problem with erections.

There is a myth that erectile dysfunction is a problem which occurs with advancing age. But it is important to understand that, although erectile dysfunction is common among the elderly, advancing age is not the only cause of it.

Men of any age can suffer from this problem. There are many causes of it which include the use of harmful substances (such as tobacco consumption and alcohol), metabolic disorders (diabetes mellitus and obesity), vascular diseases, and many more.

Erection requires smooth muscle relaxation and adequate inflow of blood to the penile region. The mechanism of erection involves the release of nitric oxide in the corpus cavernosa which activates an enzyme which results in an increased level of cyclic guanosine monophosphate. Cyclic guanosine monophosphate is essential for producing smooth muscle relaxation in corpus cavernosa, a main erectile tissue and allowing the inflow of blood.

Phosphodiesterase type 5 is an enzyme that degrades cyclic guanosine phosphate (cGMP) and affects smooth muscle relaxation and inflow of blood. A little blue pill which belongs to the class of phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors, inhibits these enzymes and blocks the degradation of cyclic guanosine phosphate (cGMP).

When there is a  local release of NO due to sexual stimulation, the inhibition of PDE5 by a little blue pill leads to increased levels of cGMP in the corpus cavernosum, resulting in smooth muscle relaxation and inflow of blood to the corpus cavernosum.
