In brief: Many potential cause

Also consider performance anxiety, newly developed tension in the relationship, newly started medications, or alcohol use.
It could be that the sexual experience has grown staid or repetitious as well. If she appears to be enjoying it less, this could contribute to anticipatory anxiety, less satisfaction and performance anxiety. Sometimes these problems are intrapsychic in origin - self-sabotoge.
