    Thank you for your prompt reply, Natalie27. However, if possible, could you give me a proper word for such the phrases or such the name. If you have, please.

    The problem is that any single word for this suggests that it's actually impossible for the lady to conceive. You could say that such a woman was 'infertile'. The bible would say she was 'barren'. Then there's 'sterile'....
    However, these days it is rarely the case that a woman can be said to be completely infertile, unless it's by choice.... besides which, these words sound a little unkind, somehow....

    It's probably best to say she has a fertility problem.

    Yes, this seems to be much complex, but your point of view is a good clarification for me. Thank you very much for your informative input, The Madbarron.
