Female orgasm, key to good sexual health

For Debby Herbenick, a researcher at the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University, these data demonstrate the importance of touching for women to achieve orgasm during sex.

Anorgasmia

Reaching climax requires, therefore, a journey in which numerous factors intervene that can lead to anorgasmia, that is, the difficulty of reaching climax. A study published in 2008 in ” BMC Womens Health ” ensures that 41% of women of reproductive age worldwide suffer from some type of sexual dysfunction, so they do not have good sexual health.

Anorgasmia is one of the main sexual problems that most affects women and involves various factors, both physical, emotional and psychological.

The former have a lot to do with diseases, taking certain medications or physical changes that can interfere with orgasm. For example, natural lubrication. Experts indicate that vaginal dryness can be a barrier to enjoying sex. Its origin is related to the decrease in vaginal fluids, a fact that usually favors the appearance of itching, irritation and even pain in the area. Lack of hydration of the intimate area can affect any woman, although with age it tends to be more recurrent.

According to the experts at Procare Health, a laboratory specialized in women’s health, the causes that can cause this discomfort are many and of very different types. Among them, the most frequent are: hormonal changes, side effects of a drug and periods of anxiety or stress, among others.

To avoid this situation, the use of a vaginal moisturizer is recommended to help rebalance the vaginal microbiota and to reduce discomfort in a short period of time. In case the vaginal dryness does not return or if the symptoms are intense, it is advisable to go to the gynecologist.

But the psychological factors involved in anorgasmia should also be treated, such as stress, depression or anxiety, as well as possible relationship problems, which also take their toll on sexual relations.
