Dr. Paul PeritoMeet the Penis

Anorgasmia is the inability to achieve an orgasm and can have several causes and treatments. Among the causes are: psychological issues; neuropathy associated with diabetes, where nerve damage affects the ability to orgasm; and age.

The good news is that there are several avenues for treatment: The psychological component may be treated by a qualified sex therapist, there are medications available for diabetics, testosterone treatments have been effective when anorgasmia is caused by low hormones, certain anti-depressants increase dopamine, which enhances the orgasm reflex, ADHD medication Adderall has been shown to increase focus, and in some cases simply changing the nature of physical stimulation has been shown to work.

For anyone experiencing anorgasmia, the two most important takeaway is that it can be treated by a qualified and dedicated men’s health expert. An expert in the field of men’s health should be able to help navigate the best treatment options available to a patient.
