Every time my girlfriend and I have sex I just cant orgasm. and I don’t really mind but I care because she’s really really hurt and I often find her crying about it and I don’t want to hurt her. I am on Prozac, I don’t know if that affects anything at all.



I appreciate the fact that you are sensitive to your girlfriend and want to fix this. It sounds to me like you need to have a discussion with your medical doctor about this. Sometimes antidepressants like Prozac can have side effects, and sometimes the depression they are used to treat can be the culprit. In any case start I would start with a discussion with your physician.

Wishing you patience and peace,
