What is Anorgasmia

Anorgasmia is a condition in which a person is unable to achieve orgasm, despite seemingly sufficient sexual stimulation. It can happen to anyone, and it is often caused by specific triggers, meaning that it is often a temporary condition. 

What causes Anorgasmia

There are many causes of anorgasmia, and most fall under either physical conditions (often medications or recreational drugs that affect blood flow) or psychological factors (stress, anxiety, etc.).

How to fix Anorgasmia?

Treatment for anorgasmia involves addressing underlying physical or psychological causes. It's important to identify the main causes of the issue, and then remove each root-cause.

Regardless of the cause, it is helpful for most to incorporate relaxation exercises to help clear your mind. If you're with a partner, communication with them is a great way to enhance your sexual experience together. It is important to note that anorgasmia is a common and treatable condition, and people experiencing this issue should not feel embarrassed or ashamed.

If you have questions or if you're experiencing persistent anorgasmia, please talk to a health care professional.
