In brief: Many things

Though typically in the movies it is something dramatic, generally in real life infertility is from pelvic inflammatory disease or other infections, or due to ovarian failure for some other reason.
Likewise, infertility can be on the male side, with troubles with viable sperm for a variety of reasons.
