What is Anorgasmia
Anorgasmia is the medical term defining the symptom of difficulty reaching orgasm. Anorgasmia is a common issue affecting 10 to 15 percent of women.
Symptoms of anorgasmia are the incapacity or long delays in reaching climax. Every woman has experienced some level of difficulty in reaching orgasm at some point in her life. Moreover, the intensity and frequency of achieving orgasm often alter with lifestyle changes, age and maturity, medical issues and prescribed medication. However, for some women, the difficulty becomes chronic.
Different levels of anorgasmia:
- Lifelong (never experienced orgasm)
- Situational (only able to reach climax in specific situations)
- Acquired (sudden difficulty reaching orgasm)
- Generalized (unable to reach climax in any situation)
In time, women experiencing anorgasmia can begin to feel very frustrated. Psychological problems associated with anorgasmia include anxiety, depression, fear of intimacy, loss of self-confidence and relationship troubles.
Noninvasive, durable treatments for anorgasmia are available. If you are having trouble reaching orgasm talk to one of our certified doctors today.

The Causes of Anorgasmia
Reaching climax takes a combination of physical, emotional, and psychological factors working together in synchronized harmony. If any of these factors are “off”, ability to reach orgasm decreases.
Physical factors can include:
- Illness (diabetes, for example)
- Aging (low estrogen levels, loss of natural lubrication in the vagina)
- Medical treatments (such as hysterectomy, oophorectomy, or cancer surgeries)
- Other sexual dysfunctions (vaginal dryness, dyspareunia)
- Alcohol abuse
Emotional / Relationship factors can include:
- Poor communication
- Relationship conflicts, resentment toward partner
- Lack of connection with partner
- Domestic violence or abuse
Psychological factors can include:
- Past sexual, physical, emotional abuse
- Negative self-image, embarrassment
- Cultural/ religious beliefs related to sexuality
- Mental health conditions (such as depression and anxiety)

Treatment Options and Other Services
There are number of ways to respond to the symptom of difficulty reaching orgasm, such as vaginal rejuvenation treatments, the O-Shot therapy, and counselling.
We highly encourage you to discuss your options with your doctor.
O-SHOT PRP THERAPY
The O-Shot injection will stimulate vaginal and clitoral tissue rejuvenation for a better overall sexual and urinary wellness. The results of PRP therapy can be astounding, and for many women, almost immediate. Libido returns, orgasm is easily achieved and vaginal lubrication is increased, putting an end to painful intercourse.
VAGINAL LASER THERAPY
Vaginal renewal treatments with diVa Laser can be a simple and effective solution to problems of vaginal dryness or laxness. The laser painlessly stimulates the thickening of the mucosal layer, restoring a more youthful tone. diVa can be effective both internally and externally at tightening skin, restoring function and appearance.
Mental and emotional health can be key factors in sexual wellness. Stress, anxiety or depression can impact libido, and a man or woman’s ability to engage with their partner. Seeking assistance from a mental health professional may help alleviate the underlying causes of the condition. The Elna Sexual Wellness Center offers sex therapy services.
BLADDER BOTOX INJECTIONS
Botox injections in the bladder can be effective for patients with urinary incontinence related to overactive bladder. The injections can reduce the urge and frequency of urination, as well as urine leaks and accidents. Botox can be helpful for people who have tried other medications or techniques to manage symptoms without success.
