When a female reaches at the age of 40 the ovary stop producing eggs and decreases estrogen production in few cases.
Hypothalamic dysfunction: few females complain irregular periods. Pituitary gland releases two hormones- FSH and LH, responsible for ovulation stimulation. If a female undergoes physical or mental stress, serious weight gain or weight loss, these conditions disturbs the production of mentioned two hormones that further effects ovulation.
Tubal infertility: if the fallopian tubes are damaged or blocked, this will block the way of fertilized egg to reach uterus. The egg starts developing in fallopian tube instead of uterus known as ectopic pregnancy.
