Anorgasmia is a term used to describe a condition whereby women find it difficult to reach orgasm or at all, and are distressed by it.

 

While it is important to remember that intensity and frequency of orgasms change with age and even medication, if you find you are struggling to climax you shouldn’t have to suffer alone.  

 

Symptoms:

  • You have never experienced an orgasm
  • You experience difficulty reaching climax
  • You can only orgasm during certain acts

What causes it?

 

1. Medication

Your condition may be due to medication that you are taking, particularly if it is for blood pressure.

 

2. Alcohol

Too much alcohol can actually tamper with your ability to climax.

 

3. Medical conditions

Diabetes, multiple sclerosis and even a hysterectomy can affect how you feel.

 

4. Psychological issues

Anxiety, depression, stress, fear of pregnancy of sexually transmitted infections, emotional abuse or embarrassment can all affect your ability to climax.

 

What can you do about it?

For many women, simple lifestyle changes can help you address the issue.

 

Explore your body to help you understand what you need for better sexual satisfaction, try new positions with your partner or invest in a vibrator to help you find your climax point.

 

However, if your ability to orgasm is down to the fact that you are having relationship troubles or have psychological issues about having sex, you may benefit from a chat with a counsellor.

 

If you are unsure as to why you are having difficulties, do make an appointment with your GP to rule out any medical conditions.
