Anorgasmia (also known as Coughlan's syndrome) describes when an individual cannot reach full sexual satisfaction (orgasm) even though they can be sexually stimulated. This can lead to frustration in the individual experiencing it.

Anorgasmia is more common in women than in men and can have many different causes such as trauma to sexual organs, complications from surgery or childbirth, alcohol or drug use, or diseases such as multiple sclerosis. It can also be caused by psychological conditions such as anxiety, depression, or addiction to drugs or alcohol. Oftentimes a temporary condition, if it becomes a chronic condition it should be discussed with a medical and/or mental health professional to determine any underlying causes and find treatment for the condition.
