Thanks for writing to us.

Klinefelter's syndrome is characterized by- Abnormal body proportions (Long legs, Short trunk, shoulder equal to hip size), abnormally large Breasts (Gynecomastia), Infertility, Sexual problems, Less than normal amount of pubic, armpit, and facial hair, Small, firm testicles and Tall height.

Without doing karyotyping, semen count, blood LH, FSH and testosterone levels, it is difficult to diagnose.

You need to consult an Endocrinologist to know the exact diagnosis. To find a good specialist nearest to your place, we have patient written reviews for doctors in our listing, those can guide you for a better doctor. You can search for a doctor in your area at

Treatment consists of testosterone therapy and psychotherapy.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.
