For better understanding, female orgasmic disorders are split into two categories:

Primary Anorgasmia - is a term used to describe the completely elusive orgasm.

Secondary Anorgasmia - typically implies a condition where women have previously experienced orgasms but do not anymore, or when orgasms occur only under specific conditions (for example, only through masturbation but not during partner sex).

Generally, a cognitive-behavior approach is used to treat female orgasmic disorders.
