I am unable to reach orgasm for the last few months, is there something I can take to help with this?

Sex and orgasm are complicated and require a multitude of factors working together. There are a number of issues than can interfere, as mentioned medications and hormones are a couple of them. Also it is important to mention this to your provider and a pelvic exam should be performed, there are some conditions that should be considered on your exam too. For some women it is a matter of having the proper stimulation and what used to work, doesn't work as well any more, so exploring that can be helpful too. Maybe using a vibrator (and they are not all alike!) will help. My website, MiddlesexMD, explores this topic further.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Are you taking any new medication or are going through any new life changes.  Certain types of medication, such as antidepressants can cause women and men's  not to be able to have an orgasm. Also, stress and other medical conditions can cause changes in your sexual life.  If it does continues, it's important to discuss it with your doctor. Hope this was helpful?
