Making Sex Enjoyable Again
Posted By Dr. Pepper Schwartz On July 12, 2013 @ 11:30 pm In Relationships | Comments Disabled
Q: My husband is 50. For some years he has been unable to have an orgasm  during intercourse. He can get and maintain an erection for a reasonable amount of time, however. Neither of us get much pleasure from sex  as a result, and avoid it because it ends with disappointment. Is there anything we can do to facilitate the orgasm?
Dr. Pepper Schwartz: Yes, but you need to go to a doctor to find out exactly what is causing what is sometimes called “retarded ejaculation .” There are many reasons this can happen, including being a side effect of antidepressants  or other medication. That’s why you need to talk to a urologist or family doctor who knows sexual medicine. This may well be something that can be corrected, so please see your doctor about this as soon as possible.
