Couples who have been unable to conceive for more than a year are diagnosed with infertility. However, female infertility occurs when the female partner is unable to conceive.
Every couple's reason for infertility is unique, however, most of them can be narrowed down to a few basic causes.
Here are various factors that cause infertility in women

Damaged or clogged fallopian tubes can prevent sperm from reaching the egg or completely prevent the egg from reaching the uterus. Fallopian tube damage is caused by a number of reasons, including pelvic inflammatory illness, endometriosis, and past ectopic pregnancies and procedures.

This is more common in women over the age of 35. The amount and quality of eggs generated by the ovaries decreases causing infertility.
