That’s what happens when you get to menopause basically, you’ve run out of eggs and you just stop ovulating. So yes but later hopefully. Some people do go through menopause early though so.

Can a woman run out of egg cells?

Eggs are a nonrenewable resource and what it means is that we are born with a certain amount and unlike other cells in our body, they do note regenerate. Our body is not able to produce new eggs.
