What is anorgasmia
An orgasm is a feeling of intense physical pleasure and release of tension, accompanied by involuntary, rhythmic contractions of your pelvic floor muscles. But it doesn’t always look — or sound — like it does in the movies. The way an orgasm feels varies among women, and in an individual, it can differ from orgasm to orgasm.
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.
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.
