Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

There are many causes for anorgasmia which is the medical term for regular difficulty in reaching orgasm after ample sexual stimulation. The type of anorgasmia you are having is acquired anorgasmia, which means that you used to have orgasms, but now experience difficulty reaching climax.

This is most commonly due to psychological factors such as stress, depression, or anxiety which play a role in the ability to orgasm. However consultation with a doctor to rule out physical causes (such as medical diseases like diabetes or side effects of medication, or gynecological causes) is required before looking into psychological causes.

The prognosis is good if this is due to stress or anxiety, and with decrease in the stress your anorgasmia will also resolve.

Take care.
