This is Dr. David

at your age, it can be difficult to have orgasms sometimes

some medications like anti-depression medications such as SSRI agents like zoloft or paxil or lexapro or prozac can cause delayed or difficult climax

if you are not taking these medications it could be due to your age that you are having problems with climax.

climax is controlled by the sympathetic autonomic nerves in your pelvis.

do you have diabetes? diabetes can often affect nerve function.
