In brief: No connection

Age of onset of puberty is when a woman starts ovulating, generally once per month.
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.
