Michael Krychman, MD, executive director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health, Dr. McDonald-Mosley, MD, MPH, chief medical officer at Planned Parenthood Federation of America and other doctors talk to Cosmopolitan about what might cause women to have trouble orgasming.

Is having trouble orgasming the same as Anorgasmia?

What, technically, is an orgasm?

An orgasm is a feeling of intense physical pleasure and a release of tension, accompanied by involuntary, rhythmic contractions of pelvic floor muscles.

Some women describe fireworks all over their body, while others describe the feeling as a tingle.
