Anovulation was studied among 219 consecutive admissions to a state mental hospital. Of those patients with normal menstrual calendars studied for ovulation by endometrial biopsy and urinary pregnanediol determination, 44.7 per cent and 35.9 per cent, respectively, had results inconsistent with ovulation. Fifteen anovulators were studied in detail. No correlation between anovulation and drug or diagnosis could be made. The difficulties encountered in attempting to determine the occurrence of ovulation in any group of women are emphasized.
