It's not her fault.
Prozac and all of the drugs in that group (ssri) can inhibit orgasms. Some patients find that taking low dose wellbutrin (100 mg) daily with the Prozac helps restore the ability to have an orgasm. If that fails, ask the doctor about non-ssri medication for depression such as Cymbalta or wellbutrin or effexor (venlafaxine).

In brief: Medication effects
Sometimes longer foreplay can help.
Your partner could also consult with her psychiatrist about this well-known side effect of ssri antidepressants. Sometimes adding low-dose wellbutrin (bupropion) can counteract anorgasmia; some also find that the herb gingko biloba can help. She could have better luck with another antidepressant such as celexa, but it's in the same medication family. Ask her doctor.
