Hello & Welcome to Just Answers.

It sounds to me like she's having issues with sexual compulsivity, which can often lead to a person rejecting sex with a partner to compulsively masturbate. Let me give you a couple articles to read about this so that you can see if it fits.

If it does, you need to know that it isn't about you, and she's lost control of her behavior. A person can really get locked into that cycle and not know how to get out, but there are answers and plenty of help for both of you.

sexual anorexia

You can recover from this problem with your relationship becoming stronger if both are willing to work on it, so don't give up hope.

My best to you,
