Intimacy Expert Q&A's
Name: Lee

Question:
I am 45 y/o female. Over the past 2 years I have been noticed my ability to climax has decreased,although I still have a strong desire for sex. Even with self-stimulation,my orgasms feel weak/less intense. I understand many factors (stress,age,depression,meds)can lead to less desire,But this is upsetting to me. Any advice would be appreciated.

Answer:
You are correct ... many factors including hormonal shifts, stress, changes in blood flow due to age, medications, a host of conditions, peripheral neuropathy, among other things can lead to shifts in sexual desire, arousal, and orgasm. I recommend a complete evaluation with someone familiar with the sexual functioning of women. I'd start with my gynecologist or internist. You can also check out AASECT.org for a certifed sex therapist in your area.
