I agree whole-heartedly with Phil that you should tell the doctor. Lie and tell him you have a new girlfriend if you have to. But make sure he knows your anorgasmia is a serious handicap. Like Phil said, it's important he knows so he doesn't tell the next patient others have no problems with Zoloft. It's not fair to the next guy in line if the doc doesn't know the truth about what's going on.

He may have some favorite ways to deal with it. Adding Wellbutrin is quite popular. Buspar too. Remeron blocks the particular receptors causing the problem and is also used. Some people have combined Serzone with Zoloft for the same reason. Sometimes dopamine enhancing drugs like ritalin, bromocriptine, amantadine, pemoline. Not to mention a whole array of aphrodisiac herbal combinations. It's my general impression that things like Wellbutrin and Buspar are helpful in perhaps 50%, + or -, of people who try them. They don't always work, but they must be doing enough good out there that docs keep using them. The point is that there are remedies to try that have worked with other people having the same problems as you are. Let your doc know Zoloft is affecting your sex life. There are things to try.
