Suddenly can' t keep it up

I am 29, and not that experienced in sex. I met the right girl - and although it was not my first time - it is the first time we do it on such a regular basis.
The problem is, some days I can keep it up, and some days I can' t. It is a real passion killer - and i feel imbaressed by the situation.
I find it that when i wear a condem - it happens more often - but have also happen without one.
Any thing I can do to reverse this misfires?
Also - it is not as hard as it use to be - is that normal?

No medicine, do smoke, live relatively healthy etc. I wondered if it became such an issue now, that I get ' stage fright'  whenever I see the condom. Feel embarrassed.
