I never had an orgasm. I felt that I was missing a big part of my life. My husband was only the 3rd person I had ever had intercourse with, and I was never satisfied. I knew I wasn’t having orgasms because I read a lot of romance novels, and knew that if I was having one, I would know!
When I came to the Center, I found out that I had low testosterone. I had no idea, since no one had ever tested me for that before. The reason behind my lack of orgasm was a combination of both the low testosterone and psychological barriers as well.
I had spoken to my OB/Gyn about the issue before I found the Center, and the only advice I got was to masturbate...what?!?!?! Between my two kids and my fulltime job, when was that going to happen??
I saw an ad for the Center in the Fairfield business journal, and kept it for two years before I called, because at the time I was pregnant. After giving birth, I was nursing, so finally, after two years, I was ready to take care of this issue.
Calling for my first appointment was easy for me, but I was very unsure what to expect once I got here, since the pregnancy has caused the lining in my vagina to get thin, making intercourse very painful. I was treated for pain first with dilators and lubricants. I was also given testosterone and Wellbutrin, and was monitored closely to see what dosage was correct. Eventually, I was taken off Wellbutrin and cut back on the testosterone. By my second year in treatment, I had an orgasm!
I am so happy I came to the Center. I learned that I wasn’t alone, that there are so many people out there that have the same issues. There really is hope.
