Weak orgasm

I am 58. When I was 48 my orgasms suddenly became so weak I could barely tell I was having one. I get aroused, have plenty of vaginal lubrication, feel the orgasm coming on, but it does not peak, and basically goes nowhere. Then there is the feeling that it is over.  I had always been orgasmic prior to this happening to me 10 year ago. It is not psychological, as was suggested by my PC. At the time this started I was in the beginning of menopause (never took HRT). I had also been taking prescription Prilosec, then Pravacid and also Prozac for about two years prior to this occurring. I have read that all of these drugs cause sexual side effects, but when I stopped them the orgasms never returned. Some things I’ve considered: Beginning at age 28 I had breast discharge at most of my yearly exams. A smear was taken 1980 and showed a slightly elevated pituitary (don’t know what the test was back then I read that pituitary tumors can cause sexual dysfunction). I had a hysterectomy in 1983 (after having 3 children), but still have ovaries. I had a hormone work-up about three years ago that was in normal range.  I was prescribed testosterone to see if it would help, but it made little difference. I have also wondered about a blood flow problem. I tried viagra twice and it didn’t make a difference, although the timing may have been wrong. I have been to three or four OB/GYN’s in the past 5 years and none of them have answers. Should I see an endocrinologist? Also, all of my menopausal friends continued to have orgasms though menopause, so I’ve ruled that out.  I was married recently and would sure love to have my orgasms back.
