Pelvic therapy: Sometimes women with this type of condition can benefit from pelvic physical therapy. I know it sounds crazy, but the muscles in the pelvis are like muscles in any other part of the body and sometimes physical therapy is necessary to address painful muscle spasms, which is what it sounds like you have. Your gynecologist may have someone for referral or you may have to do some research on your own.

Medication effect?: Has this change in the quality of your orgasmic experience been recent? If so, have you changed in any way medications or supplements you may be taking? Medication side effects are usually the cause for a change in sexual pleasure, especially if all other factors have remained the same. If there have been no medication changes, then recommend a complete physical examination with appropriate labs.
