Frequently Asked Questions

1. Which doctor would I consult for anorgasmia?

A woman could see a gynecologist first who might refer you to a qualified sex therapist if needed. Even though you may be shy and nervous about discussing something as intimate as sex, these therapists can give you valuable tips, sex education and guidance to help you in treating anorgasmia. Men should consult a Urologist or sex therapist.

2. When should I be concerned or see a doctor?

If you are satisfied with the climax of your sexual activities, then there is no need to see a doctor. However, if you have questions about orgasm or concerns about your ability to reach orgasm, then you should seek medical advice. In certain cases, lifestyle modifications and sex therapy may help. Your doctor may recommend various strategies to lower your anxiety regarding sex and increase your satisfaction.

3. What kind of intimate questions would the doctor ask or how do I prepare for my appointment?

Your doctor or the specialist you are referred to will ask you a series of question regarding your sexual history. Questions regarding the types of sexual difficulties faced, sexual orientation, pain during sex, contraception methods, presence of sexually transmitted diseases and other coexisting medical conditions would be generally discussed. It is important for you to divulge all your relevant details accurately. In some cases, it’s hard to pinpoint if the woman is suffering from anorgasmia or if her partner is unable to provide adequate sexual stimulation. The doctor may also evaluate your psychological health to see if there is any untreated depression which could lead to low sexual arousal.

4. What are the common sexual complaints?

When it comes to intimacy and sex, complaints usually arise from the varying preferences of the type and quality of sexual activity by the partners. They are more often based on frequency of sexual activity, arguments over sex, sexual affairs, initiating and refusing sex, amongst others.

5. Do men also suffer from anorgasmia?

Yes. Although not commonly seen, men with anorgasmia may experience delayed orgasm or no orgasm at all. They are usually able to penetrate their partner but do not experience orgasm.

6. How can I prevent anorgasmia?

Have a positive attitude towards healthy sexual stimulation. It could help avoid further incidences of anorgasmia as well as minimize it.
