Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.

You say nothing about orgasm through masturbation and this makes it difficult to answer your question. I think you might be describing a condition called ‘ Female Anorgasmia’ It is the situation where a woman may have no difficulty in achieving an orgasm when alone but for some reason can not abandon herself to climax with a man. It is quite common effecting as many as one in five women at some stage or other. It may have little to do with your previous surgery.

There are several approaches to treatment. Lifestyle needs to be looked at – diet, exercises, smoking, drinking, medicines – particularly the SSRI’s. You and your partner will probable need to discuss this with a Sex Counsellor but some people advocate the use of a vibrator by the man on the woman or doing whatever it is she does when alone masturbating. You might invite your partner to watch you while you masturbate and ask him to help you.

Once the ginks is broken and the woman learns to have an orgasm in the presence of her partner then she can usually move on from there to having organisms during intercourse. Some setbacks are inevitable.

As I say, Sex Therapy is strongly recommended. You might also read For Women Only by Jennifer Berman. Good luck.

Lack of orgasm after NovaSure Procedure
This is a typical male response to this issue! Doctor Rynne this woman was CLEARLY having an orgasm with her husband BEFORE her medical procedure, but then started having problems afterwards. I agree it would help to know if she can orgasm when she masterbates alone, but I don't really think that's the issue! I believe that a nerve or blood supply may have been interrupted due to her procedure and she needs to be evaluated by a doctor. I am a nurse and I know from experience that many things we are told can't happen, actually DO happen. I suspect there is a lack of blood flow to the area or a nerve that is not functioning correctly. Both of these possibilities could effect her ability to orgasm.

Lack of Orgasms
I am 37 years oldand had the Novasure procedure about a year and a half ago. I have the same issues with not being able to have an orgasm. Even when my husband goes down on me, I can not do it and I always used to be able to do it that way. I am so uptight and frustrated that I am depressed about it. I just don't know what to do!

Lack of orgasam after NovaSure
I had the Novasure procedure in January 2012, prior to the procedure I was able to have multiply orgasms during sex since the procedure I have not been able to at all no matter what we try. Very frustrating and have been told that NovaSure would not cause the issue. Thank you for the post as it seems that I am not alone in this issue, now if only there is a solution.
