The doctor may have to analyse various aspects to diagnose the disorder. The process begins from the interrogation of medical history and may be followed by a physical examination. A detailed examination of medical history may reveal the contributing causes to these problems. Consulting a gynaecologist or a sexologist for diagnosis and treatment may help you gain confidence and tackle the underlying issue.

Treatment

The treatment options vary depending on the cause of the problem. It is important to follow a healthy diet and lead a healthy lifestyle. Reducing sources of stress and getting sufficient rest is very important. Minimizing the consumption of alcohol, cigarettes and prescription drugs is strongly advised. It is recommended to see a Sexologist/Gynaecologist for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. However, for the treatment of orgasmic dysfunction, treating the cause of the condition is important.

Counselling

In couple counselling, the doctor will help the couple in resolving any major disagreements and relationship issues. Compromise between the partners will improve their sexual life and make it blissful. In rare cases, the sexologist may suggest undergoing Estrogen hormone therapy (EHT). Estrogen helps to enhance sexual desires and improve the blood flow to the genitals, thereby contributing to increased sensitivity. This therapy may include certain medications, wearing a patch, or applying gel to the genitals.
