Anorgasmia: In addition to a pelvic examination including visualization of the vagina and cervix with a speculum, she may prescribe Viagra or recommend use of certain creams.review sexual anatomy and importance of clitoral stimulation or recommend couple sexual counseling. Use of male hormones may be discussed but is quite controversial.
