This illness involves women who are of childbearing age.


This illness involves women who are in their childbearing years.

The adjective “childbearing” means capable of, suitable for, or relating to the bearing of a child or of children. The first sentence above is probably more precise, but the second sentence above is probably how more people would say it. The caveat with the second sentence, however, is that some might infer that it only effects women who have actually had children, which is why the first one is probably better.
