Problems in reaching orgasm: psychological and physical reasons

If you find yourself in the situation of not experiencing orgasm, you need to know that there can be many reasons for that. We write tis article mainly to help you make the right decision if any of the reasons we will present you sound familiar.

Two main conditions can affect in a negative way your orgasm: psychological and physical reasons.

There are some physical reasons why you just cannot reach orgasm. The main factor can be that you are not being stimulated enough by you or your sexual partner. Menopause can also be a reason for problems reaching an orgasm.

Did you ever wonder if mental issues can stop you from reaching orgasm? If you have a stressful life and you feel depressed, there is a big chance this can cause your lack of sexual pleasure.

Let’s expand on some of the main psychological reasons why a woman can experience problems in reaching an orgasm:

Anxiety

This condition can affect your body in many different ways, one of them being the fact that you cannot reach an orgasm. Having your mind full of many stressful thoughts can stop you from reaching orgasm. Wondering in an obsessive way if you are good enough in bed, can be one of those many thoughts. So try as hard as you can to relax before sex.

Problems regarding self-image

People who suffer from Body Dysmorphic Disorder can also experience problems in reaching orgasm. Thinking in an obsessive way of your real flaws (or imagined ones) can definitely affect your sex life. Most of the imperfections are minor in this case and the complexity of them is just in our minds.

Depression and antidepressants

Depression can definitely affect your life and particularly your sex life. Reaching orgasm is almost impossible if you suffer from depression. The paradox is that antidepressants can also affect your orgasm. They have plenty of side effects, and there is not a specific side effect that applies to everyone, no matter what. So let’s say that if you cannot reach orgasm and you take antidepressants, this particularly treatment can be the reason. But it is not a sure thing. You should definitely consult a specialist and ask more about it.

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

We all know what PTSD means but what you should know is that it can also affect your sex life. This is a strange situation because it can happen even without you realising it. Our brain has the amazing power of hiding traumatic experiences. So something bad that happened in your life, something that your brain decided to hide it, can actually affect your orgasm. Sometimes it helps to consult a specialist and remember those things. It’s your call.

As you can see, there are many ways in which your orgasm can be affected. What we can recommend is that you should try to eliminate, in the first place, physical issues. Communication is very important in a relationship. Foreplay can definitely help, and the way your sex partner is acting definitely counts. If you or your partner feel like there is a mental reason why you cannot reach orgasm, try to find help at the right specialist.
