Lost of orgasm

    Has this ever happened to you? You have an erection; you have sex or masturbate but cannot reach orgasm? How often do you experience such circumstances? In which situations this is a norm?

   A single lack of orgasm is experienced by almost every man. Orgasm may not come if a man is very tired, nervous, too drunk, upset about something, or cannot focus on sex. In such circumstances, this is not a disorder; this is the norm.

    You can suspect a dysfunction when orgasm doesn't come regularly or doesn't come at all. Think about when did this happen? Under which conditions? Did this happen with a particular partner or with different partners?

    The reasons, however, can be different and related to both mental disorders, such as depression, anxiety, personality disorders (schizotypal, dissociative), and/or organic diseases, such as neurological, or endocrine disorders. 

    If you drink alcohol or smoke excessively, it can also impair nerve impulse conduction and the sensation of orgasm. Adjust your lifestyle to minimize the damage to your sexual health.

    How to proceed? First of all, you need to see a doctor-sexologist to examine and determine the cause of the problem. Keep in mind that certain medications, such as antidepressants or blood pressure medicine, can affect the achievement of orgasm. If this is the case, you need to see the doctor who prescribed the medication and discuss possible adjustments. 

    If the cause is not related to organic diseases, the problem can be treated by a psychotherapist, using different techniques: rational, cognitive-behavioral, family, personality reconstruction psychotherapy, DPDH, and sex therapy.

    Do not procrastinate with seeking a doctor’s help. The sooner you start treatment, the sooner you will regain the vibrant feeling of orgasm.
