יבמות ס״ד א:ט׳-ס״ד ב:א׳

א”ר יצחק מפני מה היו אבותינו עקורים מפני שהקב”ה מתאוה לתפלתן של צדיקים א”ר יצחק למה נמשלה תפלתן של צדיקים כעתר מה עתר זה מהפך התבואה ממקום למקום כך תפלתן של צדיקים מהפכת מדותיו של הקב”ה ממדת רגזנות למדת רחמנות אמר רבי אמי אברהם ושרה טומטמין היו שנאמר (ישעיהו נא, א) הביטו אל צור חוצבתם ואל מקבת בור נוקרתם וכתיב (ישעיהו נא, ב) הביטו אל אברהם אביכם ואל שרה תחוללכם
Yevamot, 64a:9 – 64b:1

Rabbi Yitzḥak said For what Reason were our Forefathers initially Infertile? Rabbi Ami said Abraham and Sarah were originally TumTumin, People whose Sexual Organs are Concealed and not Functional, as it is stated “Look to the Rock from where you were Hewn, and to the Hole of the Pit from where you were Dug” (Isaiah 51:1), and it is written in the Next Verse “Look to Abraham your Father and to Sarah who bore you (Isaiah, 51:2), which indicates that Sexual Organs were Fashioned for them, Signified by the words Hewn and Dug, over the Course of Time.

יבמות ס״ד ב:ב׳
אמר רב נחמן אמר רבה בר אבוה שרה אמנו אילונית היתה שנאמר (בראשית יא, ל) ותהי שרי עקרה אין לה ולד אפי’
שרה תחוללכם
Yevamot, 64b:2

Rav Naḥman said that Rabba bar Avuh said Our mother Sarah was Initially a Sexually Underdeveloped Woman [Ay Lonit], as it is stated “And Sarah was barren; she had no child (Genesis 11:30). The Superfluous Words “She had no child,” indicate that she did not have even a Place, this a Womb, for a Child.
