What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of Hypogonadism?
I got that diagnosis
Reduced functionality of the gonads
Thanks for asking once again on HealthcareMagic.
Gonads refer to the internal organs responsible for sexual functions. The gonads produce the hormones that synthesize the sex hormones. In case of a male, the testicles produce testosterone and the process is stimulated by certain hormones like FSH and LH which are secreted from a place called hypothalamus and pituitary in the brain. If somehow this hypothalamo-pituitary axis is affected or if the gonads (testicles) fail to develop properly, hypogonadism may result. That is the condition that you have. Further evaluation will clarify the cause.
