Question: I am a 70 year old woman and have a constant urge to have an orgasm. I am constantly stressed by this and find that it is causing anxiety. I had surgery for endometrial cancer several years ago. Could this be a cause? I really need to find some relief for this problem.

Brief Answer:
Probably a hormonal disbalance, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to a hormonal disbalance.

I would recommend the following examinations to confirm the cause:

-estrogen and testosterone level

-thyroid hormone levels

-cortisol level

Meanwhile, I would recommend you to take anti-anxiety medication such as Xanax.

This is a prescription medication, so you should consult your doctor before taking it.

After the examinations you can consult me again for further evaluation and specific treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
