What is hypogonadism?

Hypogonadism is when the sex glands (testes in men, ovaries in women) produce little or no hormones.

Common symptoms reported by people with hypogonadism

Reports may be affected by other conditions and/or medication side effects. We ask about general symptoms (anxious mood, depressed mood, fatigue, pain, and stress) regardless of condition.
