Orgasms Lacking? Did You remember your Vitamins?

Orgasmic disorders in female are relatively common. Many women will report that their orgasms are less frequent, less strong, less satisfying than they were when they were younger. For some it's a matter of not even getting enough aroused to even have a chance to orasm. Female sexual arousal disorder is a condition in which a woman has difficulty maintaining arousal so that she doesn't ever climax. Complete lack of orgasms (anorgasmia)
is not very common. Although a number of complicated reasons for this, there may be simple fixes in some women. The research shows that low levels of vitamin B12, iron, and folate all can contribute to poor nerve function. With poor nerve function, yes, even those nerves around the clitoris do not function well. And if you do not have proper hormone levels, even the other therapies, like hormonal medications, topical medications, and MonaLisa Touch therapies may not work as well as they should. Basic blood counts can give your gyno an idea of your current blood levels so that she can determine the specific vitamins you may need to improve with your diet! So don't give up, eat healthy, and schedule that date nite, and your orgasms may switch back on!


  1. VERY interesting!
    Can you email me about the research you talked about???
    Thanks, Dr. Trupin!

  2. Dr. Trupin, do you provide this type of "testing service" at your practice?

  3. Yes, at our practice we do female sexual dysfunction testing. The most important first step is a diagnosis. WHO uses (World Health Organization's International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10) focuses on the physical influences on sexual response in men and women. Sexual disorders are defined as "the various ways in which an individual is unable to participate in a sexual relationship as he or she would wish." Classifications of sexual dysfunction include lack of sexual desire, sexual aversion disorder, failure of genital response, orgasmic dysfunction, nonorganic vaginismus, nonorganic dyspareunia, and excessive sexual drive.

    I actually prefer using the classification from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) which highlights the emotional and psychiatric influences involved in sexual dysfunctions, referring to the disorders as "disturbances in sexual desire and psychophysiologic changes that characterize the sexual response cycle and cause marked distress and interpersonal difficulty." Meaning that you actually have to be bothered by the condition in order to make the formal definition accurate. Their categories defined by the DSM-IV are the desire disorders of HSDD and sexual aversion, female arousal disorders, female orgasmic disorders, and finally the sexual pain disorders including both dyspareunia, and vaginismus.

    After this initial stage of the work up medical work up is planned on an individual basis that may or may not include nutrition testing.
