Difficulty Orgasming Q&A

What is difficulty orgasming?

Orgasming is the climax of sexual enjoyment, an intensely pleasurable experience unlike any other.

Difficulty orgasming (female orgasmic disorder) means you take longer than you’d like to reach orgasm. Your orgasms could also be infrequent, or you might not orgasm at all, despite being sexually aroused and stimulated. Another problem is experiencing disappointing orgasms.

The intensity of orgasms and their frequency varies between women, and your orgasms can also be different on each occasion. Providing you’re happy with the quality and quantity of your orgasms, there’s no cause for concern.

If you have difficulty orgasming and it’s causing distress, Comprehensive Urology offers effective treatments.

What causes difficulty orgasming?

Human sexual arousal and orgasming are reactions to physical, emotional, and psychological stimuli. All three need to be in harmony for the most satisfying orgasms.

Many people struggle because they don’t understand how their body works or don’t know how to communicate their desires to a partner. Other problems that can affect your ability to reach orgasm include:

  • Sexual or emotional abuse
  • Poor body image
  • Feelings of guilt or embarrassment
  • Cultural and religious influences
  • Long-term or severe stress
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Lack of emotional connection
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Partner’s sexual problems, like erectile dysfunction
  • Excessive alcohol intake
  • Smoking
  • Gynecological surgery

Long-term health conditions like diabetes and multiple sclerosis (MS) can affect your ability to orgasm. Difficulty orgasming can also be caused by prescription medication to treat blood pressure, allergies, and depression.

Changes to your body that come with aging can result in difficulty orgasming and other sexual health problems. Menopause, when levels of estrogen (a female sex hormone) fall, is often the start of age-related sexual troubles. These can include vaginal dryness and loss of sexual desire.

How is difficulty orgasming treated?

Many treatments can help you improve the quality and frequency of your orgasms. First, your doctor does a thorough symptom review and physical exam. Because so many things can affect your ability to orgasm, they need to address the most likely causes first.

Your Comprehensive Urology doctor will recommend one or more of the following:

  • Female sexual anatomy education
  • Self-directed sexual stimulation
  • Sexual communication
  • Changes in sexual positions
  • Sexual enhancement devices
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
  • Estrogen vaginal cream
  • Testosterone therapy

Comprehensive Urology also offers ThermiVa®, a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation therapy from ThermiGen LLC. ThermiVa uses radiofrequency energy to promote natural tissue regeneration. This improves sensation, reduces dryness, and improves orgasms.
