The causes to look for Orgasm inability are;

1) Low thyroid (hypothyroidism)

2) Diabetes (if you have family history)

3) Monotony or boredom

4) Depression or anxiety disorder

5) Hormonal

6) Psychological

Bupropion has emerged as a treatment for female orgasmic disorder. Some physician also use Viagra. Both of these are not approved by FDA for female orgasmic disorders but have good results in research studies. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for anorgasmia focuses on promoting changes in sexually relevant thoughts. The underlying assumption of CBT-based interventions is that orgasmic ability and satisfaction can be increased by reducing sex-associated cognitive distortions. You may need to consult a urologist, sex therapist and gynecologist for the assessment. Following are suggested by the sex therapists;

1) Kegel exercises for the pelvic floor.

2) Relaxation techniques,

3) Sexual exploration,

4) Improving sexual communication.

Changes in the vaginal and clitoral tissues due to estrogen deficiency is suppose to have a effect on sexual sensation. These changes can result in absent orgasm due to decreased sensations or diminished peak of orgasm. The other reasons for the problem is female androgens. Androgen production many times is responsible for these symptoms and an estimation of serum concentrations of testosterone, free testosterone, or androstenedione may point to the problem. There are contractions of 8-10 muscles of pelvic floor. These contractions are inadequate in the women with estrogen and androgen deficiency and thus the decreased sensation or lack / inadequacy of climax. With the proper hormonal treatment this should be correctable. Pelvic floor exercises, biofeedback, electrical stimulation of the pelvic floor also are helpful.

The treatment is done on the following main lines;

1) individual or couples psychotherapy/sex therapy,

2) hormone therapy (exogenous testosterone replacement and or estrogen and progesterone addition)

or

3) tibolone, a synthetic selective estrogen and androgen modulator

The other modalities too are tried like;

1) Cognitive behavioral therapy

2) Use of fantasy

3) Mechanical devices; The only device that has been approved by the FDA for female sexual dysfunction (including arousal and orgasmic disorders) is the EROS-CTD (Clitoral Therapy Device; UroMetrics, Inc., St. Paul, Minnesota). This is a small vacuum device designed to increase clitoral engorgement and ability to reach orgasm.

4) Medications commonly used for men with erectile problems, like sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), or vardenafil (Levitra), is tried in those cases, in which above measures are not successful.

5) Bupropion has emerged as an alternative treatment for female orgasmic disorder.

Please read this excellent resource for the further details;

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/female-sexual-dysfunction/DS00701

Following also may be considered;

Zestra; A small, placebo-controlled trial published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy in 2003 showed that when used as a genital massage oil, this proprietary blend of botanicals (including borage seed and evening primrose oils, Angelica root and vitamins C and E) provided a statistically significant increase in arousal, desire, genital stimulation, ability to orgasm, and pleasure.

ArginMax; In a double blind study found the nutritional supplement ArginMax increased sexual desire and satisfaction in more than twice the number of women taking placebo. The research was published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy in 2001.
