Ah, female orgasm. Literally, right? Well, some women report having trouble achieving orgasm through intercourse. For them, orgasm can be elusive at best.

While everyone is different, some women may put undue pressure on herself, and her partner. They may really “work” at trying to get her to orgasm, and quite possibly creating a no-win situation for both parties. Doctors suggest, as mentioned in a Mayo Clinic online post, to relax. Instead, try focusing on emotions and feelings related to sex rather than the act of trying to orgasm.

Some women actually may have an easier time reaching orgasm through manual or oral stimulation. For those interested in knowing about the G-spot, it apparently is real, and can be located by inserting a finger in the vagina and moving the finger in a “come hither” motion.

In some cases, inability to orgasm can be caused by a medical condition. If you are having trouble reaching orgasm, you may want to talk with your doctor to identify the cause and discuss possible treatment options.
