Dr. Susan Wingo answered:

Why could malnutrition cause anovulation?

Stress response

Poor_nutrition
Malnutrition, whether due to famine, intestinal disease, anorexia nervosa, or extreme dieting, is physically stressful to the body, and results in high levels of cortisol. High cortisol levels suppress the pituitary hormones that trigger ovulation. This is beneficial in the long run because it lowers birth rates in times of famine, and reduces the number of deaths from starvation.
