Lots of things: Assuming you are a woman, low hormones, poor technique, depression, a hooded clitoris, and many other choices. Never having had an orgasm is different than having had them in the past and not having them anymore. If you are a "never had", get a physical exam. Most women have their first orgasm from masturbation. Ask your doc for help, this can be frustrating and it can be fixed!

Will you lose the feeling of an orgasm if you get a labiectomy?

Unlikely: Clitoris and vaginal g spot are not involved during labiectomy and thus feeling of orgasm should not be affected once pain and tenderness form surgery have resolved.
