Hello doctor,

I have been unable to achieve an orgasm lately. It started disappearing midway during sex with my husband. Now I just cannot get one at all. I have not been able to self-pleasure in years, and I have never been able to get an orgasm via oral sex. I have always had great sex with my husband, and we have been together for over nine years. I do not know what is going on. I am looking for some insight into my problem. I am not on any medication for any condition.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You are probably suffering from female orgasmic disorder (FOD).
  • Kindly get a blood panel done to rule out an organic cause. I suggest:
  1. Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH).
  2. Luteinizing hormone (LH).
  3. Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).
  4. Serum prolactin.
  5. Estradiol level.
  6. Complete blood count (CBC).
  • Various treatment modalities are available like sensate focus therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, etc. You can visit a therapist regarding the same.

Hope this solves your query. Feel free to ask, if you need further clarifications.
