Hypogonadism refers to a condition in which the body does not produce enough testosterone due to impaired function of the gonads (testes or ovaries). This can occur at any age and significantly affect one's quality of life.

Secondary hypogonadism indicates a problem with the pituitary gland or hypothalamus in the brain failing to signal the gonads to produce testosterone.
