That is my problem. Cannot reach orgasm. This is extemely frustrating. For me...not to mention my spouse. It is almost like it is **Dead** (lol)
Any suggestions??? Should I talk to pdoc about this. I have told him that my libido has diminished, but that can be overcome, it just takes a bit longer, but just when I feel like actually having sex, I cannot have an orgasm...believe I have tried. HELP!!!!!

Thanks for the info
