A 36-year-old male asked about a 24-year-old female:

My wife is suffering from gastric ulcer and anovulation, can this be the reason she is not getting pregnant, if yes how can we permanently cure this ?

No egg and ill: Anovulation(no egg) is common in severely debilitated patients with a chronic illness. I am not sure why she is anovulatory with a gastric ulcer unless she is very anemic. Have her see a gyn md in addition to the gastroenterologist to sort out the answer(s).
