Female Orgasmic Disorder

Updated: FEBRUARY 3, 2020

Female orgasmic disorder (FOD) is the ongoing inability of a woman to reach orgasm regardless of sexual arousal or stimuli. Female orgasmic disorder is typically a lifelong condition which means that women who have it have never acheived orgasm alone or with a partner. Some women who had orgasms in the past lose the ability to climax after sickness, emotional trauma or due to surgery or medication. This is called acquired female orgasmic disorder and is usually a temporary condition.
