Amenorrhea Wnts Baby: If you have no periods (amenorrhea), then you are not ovulating and you will have trouble getting pregnant.

The overall number of eggs that ovulate or become fertilized is a set number (as compared to men, where the testicles make new sperm all the time). When a woman stops ovulating, she can no longer get pregnant, generally age 45-50. However, when this occurs, is--as I am aware--is not related to puberty. ...Read more
