Orgasm and treatment
I have manic-depressive disorder, but was in remission for six months during which I experienced
intense levels of sexual interest. I am a single woman, and during that time could reach five orgasms in 30 mins. I am left frustrated now as I can hardly have an orgasm since having a relapse into depression, due to the treatment I am on. Is there any way I can regain having an
orgasm while on treatment?

I'm not sure what medicatio you are taking, but delayed orgasm is definitely a side effect of the medication. You might not be multi-orgamic like in the past, but with direct clitoral stimulation with for example a "Magic Wand" or "Pocket Rocket" vibrator, you might find that you can regain your orgasms. Be patient, use lots of lubrication, having a patient lover also helps.
Your treatment is very important, but so is your orgasms, so spend some time, maybe read erotic books that can help stimulate your sexual response.Good luck.
