Expert Q & A Answers About Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors

I haven’t had an orgasm in 20 years. What can I do?

I’m 45 and I haven’t been able to have an orgasm for more than 20 years…either by masturbation or intercourse. I was able to have them as a teenager and young woman, but they stopped after I had a serious anxiety disorder and left my husband. I do go to a therapist, but not specifically for this. I’m single and this interferes in my relationships with men because they seem to think it’s a reflection on them…which only causes me more anxiety. What should I do?

My boyfriend is on blood pressure medication and can’t get it up. How do I talk to him about it?

I am a 56-year-old post-menopausal woman with a healthy interest in sex. I have begun a serious relationship with a 66-year-old man, who is on medication for blood pressure and SSRI medication. He knows that the blood pressure med affects his sex life, but he acts as if there’s no problem. He hates the idea of Viagra and doesn’t want to talk about it. I love him and we talk about spending our lives together...but I want to be able to have sex. How can I get through to him?
