Many women experience difficulty reaching orgasm, especially later in life. There are several possible reasons for not having orgasms, which can take a toll on your intimate relationships and overall sexual satisfaction. Fortunately, there are many ways to resolve the obstacles that are keeping you from having orgasms so that you can feel sexually gratified and find more enjoyment in intimate settings.
Potential Reasons For Not Having Orgasms
Mental Health Concerns
Especially for women, reaching orgasm is dependent on mental and emotional factors. Anxiety, depression, guilt surrounding sex, relationship problems, and past traumatic sexual experiences can all lead to problems reaching orgasm. Easing fears and anxiety to reach a relaxed state is important to climax, as is feeling comfortable around your partner. If problems within your relationship are creating psychological barriers to reaching orgasm, seeing a relationship therapist could help.
For some women, an inability to orgasm is linked to pain during sex. Vaginal infections, vaginal atrophy due to menopause, and conditions such as vulvodynia and vaginismus are potential causes of painful sex. If you’re experiencing pain during intercourse, seeing your doctor for an evaluation can help you get to the root of it.
Not having enough lubrication can make it difficult to orgasm. This is especially true in older women, given that the natural decline in sex hormone production with age can lead to vaginal dryness. Using ample lubricant when you have intercourse can help prevent uncomfortable dryness and make it easier to orgasm.
Reduced Sensitivity Due To Aging
Menopause and the aging process cause reduced blood flow to the vagina, leading to less sensitivity of the clitoris and vaginal tissues. This can make it more difficult for post-menopausal women to get aroused and reach orgasm.
The O-Shot® rejuvenates the vaginal tissues with platelet-rich plasma for stronger, more frequent orgasms after menopause. G-Spot Amplification®, on the other hand, enhances the G-spot for increased sexual arousal and satisfaction in women who are struggling to orgasm and can experience vaginal orgasms. Both of these treatments are available at the Visionary Centre for Women. Contact us today to speak with Dr. Hayes and learn about the treatments available to help you start having orgasms.
