Dear Dr. Betty,

I hear/read a lot about male ED and diabetes. Is there a connection between female orgasm and diabetes?

I used to be able to achieve an orgasm easily, but since having diabetes it's more difficult and definitely less intense. I'm 65


Dear K,

The health of our bodies always affects our sexuality. However, I suspect your age of 65 also has to do with your orgasms. Also our length of time with the same partner can affect sexual interest and response. Since you are well past menopause, you might get your hormones checked out. I use a bio-identical hormone cream made from the soy bean plant. I avoid big pharma whenever it's possible.

Wife Has Diabetes. Can't Orgasm But Still Finds Sex Pleasurable. Is That Enough?

My dilemma is this:

My wife and I have been married for 37 years. I am 74 and she 61. We have enjoyed a full and varied sex life and still make love around three times a week. However some two years ago my wife was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes for which she receives medication. Probably due to this she now seems unable to reach orgasm although she reassures me and I can tell that she still finds the sex very pleasurable.

Hello Betty,

I'm 44 year old woman. I've been on Effexor XR for over 15 years plus I have type 2 Diabetes. I have just recently started Masturbating and it is very hard for me to reach orgasm. I have even tried Clitoral Stimulation, but nothing seams to be working for me. Is it possible that I have no
feelings because I'm very worried?
