Brief Answer:
It is probably stress

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for reverting back to me.

In view of the provided response there is high possibility of stress being as causative agent. It is common in young women to have less desire for sex when there is stress factor.

The second possibility is hypoactive sexual desire disorder which can be primary and secondary. The possibility of secondary is more high as she was having normal experience few months back.

I will recommend following things things
1. Spend enough time in foreplay.I guess 30 minute is good one but not everybody responds equally so going further must be helpful.

2. Ensure active participation of both. Do not allow her to be just passive recipient of sex.
3. Use different positions to reignite fire as simple missionary positions becomes another name for boredom over a time.
4. Use lubricant of your choice. For example there are good collection with durex.
5. Last but not least stress management.


I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards
