Anorgasmia in Vulva Owners

Healthline reached out to Heather Jeffcoat for her expert opinion on anorgasmia

Wait, what’s anorgasmia?

Anorgasmia is defined as the inability to achieve orgasm, despite sufficient sexual stimulation and is associated with personal distress,” says Dr. Heather Jeffcoat, a doctor of physical therapy who specializes in sexual dysfunction, pain, and incontinence, and author of “Sex Without Pain: A Self-Treatment Guide to the Sex Life You Deserve.

  • shame
  • inadequacy
  • anger

“There’s a diagnostic classification system based on whether it has been lifelong or acquired,” explains Jeffcoat. There’s also something called situational anorgasmia.

She explained that the pain I experienced with IC had helped create a cycle of muscle guarding which affected the entire pelvic area. I had no idea of the amount of...
