In brief: No

First time i've ever heard of this.
Pyloric stenosis is usually an isolated condition that is corrected by surgery with no associated conditions.

In brief: Other abnormalities

Pyloric stenosis can be associated with other congenital abnormalities.
One report states that about 7% of PS babies will also have another condition such as intestinal malrotation, a urinary tract obstruction, or esophageal atresia, which are also caused by chromosome abnormalities caused conditions. Heart abnormalities can also occur. Definite evidence for infertility later in life is not known.

In brief: No

Pyloric stenosis involves the pyloric sphincter muscle which controls how fast or slow the stomach empties.
It has nothing to do with reproductive organs. It is hereditary. So one"s children can have pyloric stenosis if the parent had it as a child.
