I don't have any of those problems. This started after I had my daughter I think. I'm pretty sure it's nothing psychological I enjoy sex I just don't get there.
Would rather converse online if that's ok.

this is a good article
https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/all-about-sex/201209/6-ways-help-her-have-orgasms
have you tried to use a vibrator during sex to help increase stimulation?
have you tired to have sex in non routine places which can heighten sensation
make love in a new location, in a different way, at a different time, or with a different ambiance, for example, candle light, music, and sex toys. Beforehand, try bathing or showering together, or treat yourselves to professional massages.

Hi the article is interesting but I have honestly tried all these things and whilst enjoyable they still don't make me climax. I was wondering if there may be a physical cause considering this only happened after giving birth?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
after birth, the nerves in your vaginal canal could have been injured or damaged which could affect your ability to climax.
most likely your estrogen levels are ok if you have normal monthly periods
but as women get older, they sometimes can have decline of their estrogen levels which can affect their sex drive and also could affect their ability to climax.

So if the nerves are damaged is there anything I can do about it
