Anorgasmia is the absence of orgasm and the highest point of his pleasure during sex.

The fact is that this affects most of the female population. As for men, this is very rare for them. Many believe that anorgasmia is a serious illness, for whom it is simply a deviation from the norm. But what is it really? In fact, this is a complex problem that arises at the level of psychological and physiological aspects.


Causes of anorgasmia

In fact, there are a lot of reasons for anorgasmia. Therefore, it is worth analyzing this problem from the point of view of various factors.

  • An inexperienced lover. This "problem" arises in the event that a young girl is engaged in sex with a guy, but does not reach orgasm. This phenomenon is the most common, but over time and with experience it passes. Often, changing the sexual partner can affect this process. Because each person has his own "mechanism" and "technique".
  • Physiological features. For this reason, anorgasmia occurs rarely. This may be due to congenital or acquired anomalies in the development of genital organs. It is very simple to determine this, it is only necessary to visit a gynecologist. It should be noted again that this is extremely rare.
  • Gynecological diseases. The fact is that because of its anatomical structure, some women experience pain during sex. Therefore, the achievement of orgasm is reduced to nothing. This can be affected by diseases of the genitourinary system, adhesions, infectious diseases and general vaginal dryness.
  • Hormonal disorders. For many women, it often varies from edge to edge. Especially during the reception of special drugs, many of which cause side effects. Diseases of the thyroid gland strongly influence the hormonal background of the woman.
  • The level of mental development and intelligence. What is more interesting than a person is more intelligent, so it is more difficult for him to relax and give himself up to instinctual urges. This conclusion could make Japanese scientists. It is very difficult for such women to switch from routine to this occupation. Representatives of the fair sex are often frigid, so bring them to orgasm is very difficult. In this case, only an individual approach is needed.
  • Psychological factors. Overwork, bad sleep, well-being, childhood trauma, stress and much more, fully affect the achievement of orgasm. Gathered together, all these factors can discourage the desire to do anything. In this case, anorgasmia appears.

Symptoms of anorgasmia

There are symptoms of anorgasmia in the absence of orgasm. The reasons for this phenomenon were described above. The fact is that a physically healthy person may suffer from such a "disease" or problem. Everyone calls this phenomenon in his own way.

There are special reasons that contribute to this. As for the symptoms, he is alone. During sex, a man or woman does not reach the highest point of enjoyment. As for the male part of the population, this happens very rarely.

No other symptoms exist. From the most understood anorgasmia everything becomes more than understandable. This problem is everywhere the same. It does not matter whether it's a man or a woman. A person does not manage to reach orgasm and this is affected by a number of factors, ranging from psychological problems to serious diseases. As for the latter, in this case we are talking about women. Anorgasmia is a rather serious "disease" among the female population.

Anorgasmia in men

Anorgasmia in men is very rare. It arises only on an emotional level. Virtually none of the men suffer from this problem.

So, the similar phenomenon at representatives of a male arises against a background of psychological frustration. Teenage traumas that were suffered in childhood and adolescence affect the normal idea of sexual intercourse. With such a problem it is necessary to fight either alone, or with the help of a psychologist.

Another common cause of anorgasmia in men is the so-called "stuck" at the Oedipus or Electra stage. The fact is that at the age of 5-7 years the child develops the first rudiments of attraction to the representatives of the opposite sex. If the parents during this period behave negatively, this will be postponed in the memory of the child and in the future will lead to serious problems. This is all about the psychological factors of anorhozmia.

Organic causes occur with neurological damage, and at any level. So, it can be the brain, the nerves of the small pelvis or the spinal cord. True, such reasons for the lack of orgasm are extremely rare. Anorgasmia in men practically does not occur.


Anorgasmia in women

Why does anorgasmia appear in women? The fact is that the representatives of the fair sex, such a "disease" is the most common. There are several main reasons for this.

First of all, much depends on the psychological state of the woman. If she has unpleasant memories of a sexual nature, anorgasmia is inevitable. Much depends on the woman's partner, if he does not know her habits and does not understand how to give her pleasure, then problems arise. In addition, there are various abnormal development of the genital organs. In this case, you need your own individual approach.

Gynecological diseases also affect the lack of orgasm. Hormonal disorders contribute. What is most interesting, even a high intellect can become the reason for the development of such a phenomenon. Because a woman does not just switch from her everyday problems and give herself completely to instinct.

There were also psychological problems. They are able to accumulate and eventually a woman can become frigid. Therefore, it is necessary to fight against our own problems. Anorgasmia requires an immediate solution!

Situational anorgasmia

In this case, there is a lack of orgasm in a particular situation. There may be several reasons for this.

The first thing is the "work" of the partner. If a woman has just started her sex life with this partner, then they may need time to get used to each other and learn the habits of a sexual nature. Usually it passes very quickly, but directly depends on the person.

Situational orgasms are quite common. Much depends on the status of partners, as well as the general situation. Often a woman simply does not manage to relax, because of this, she does not have an orgasm.

This is not at all difficult to call a problem, because such cases, as a rule, are single. They depend on the status of partners at the moment and the events taking place around. As a rule, it's a matter of chance and it's not worth seriously talking about such a "problem". In women, situational anorgasmia is more common than in men.

Primary anorgasmia

What is primary anorgasmia and why does it occur? This "symptom" suggests that a woman has never had an orgasm. This problem can arise against the background of psychological and physiological factors.

So, some partners do not seek to help their partner get an orgasm. That's why this problem is so common. Naturally, this can be affected by changes in the body of a woman. Therefore, first of all, it is necessary to determine the cause of such a phenomenon.

Sometimes the primary anorgasmia is affected by psychological factors. So, for some reason a woman can not relax and the whole process does not bring her pleasure.

In such cases it is necessary to understand the causes of this phenomenon. Basically it is solved with your partner. If the list of "discontent" and attempts to resolve did not give anything, you need to go to a sex therapist. Otherwise anorgasmia can develop into a more serious problem, which will have to be solved by other methods.

False anorgasmia

The first step is to understand what it is. So, false anorgasmia implies the incompleteness of the orgiastic stage in multiorgan women. And all this is accompanied by a feeling of complete dissatisfaction.

This phenomenon is often found in women, rather than in men. Earlier this was called "frigidity", but now it has acquired a new meaning. In any case, no matter how it is called, it is necessary to fight the existing problem. So, additional stimulation of the clitoris can help.

So, under false anorgasmia is understood a condition when a woman does not experience orgasm or he is some kind of weak. In this case, you should not worry, this phenomenon, as a rule, happens to be rare. In addition, the concept of false anorgasmia also characterizes a weak orgasm, when a woman is able to receive multiple. Experiencing this is not worth it, it is not so common. In general, such anorgasmia is not at all a cause for concern.


Coital anorgasmia

Coital anorgasmia, is there any cause for concern? In fact, there are no reasons for worry. But much depends on why this problem has appeared and at what age.

So, under coital anorgasmia is understood the complete absence of orgasm during all sexual acts. But this phenomenon only occurs when you have sex with a partner. As a rule, as a result of masturbation, orgasm is present. In this case, you need to identify the problem and try to solve it yourself.

But not always partners can understand the situation. In this case, a consultation of a sex therapist and a gynecologist is necessary, if it is a woman. As a rule, taking hormonal drugs, vitamins, antidepressants, tranquilizers and stimulants solves this problem.

It is important not to delay and go on time to see a doctor. This is quite normal phenomenon, which must be dealt with. Because anorgasmia can completely lead to the lack of desire to have sex.
