Hypogonadism is a condition that can affect both men and women where the gonads, or sex glands, produce little to no sex hormones. These are vital in the sexual development of men and women. They help control pubic hair growth, the development of sexual organs such as the breasts and testicles and control sperm production in men, and the menstrual cycle for women.

Unfortunately, a comprehensive cure for hypogonadism has yet to be discovered. However, there are treatments available for this condition, but it typically requires lifelong treatment to avoid symptoms resurfacing.

We’re conducting hypogonadism clinical research to learn more about the different causes for this condition and how to better treat the symptoms associated with it. Our research team is looking for people in Birmingham and the surrounding area who have been diagnosed with hypogonadism. This research will help us develop even better options for people living with this condition.

Do I Qualify for a Hypogonadism Study in Birmingham?

You should know that qualification criteria varies depending on the type of clinical study being conducted. Why does this matter? It means that you may not qualify for a given clinical trial, even if you have low testosterone.

Signs and Symptoms of Hypogonadism

There are two types of hypogonadism, primary hypogonadism and central hypogonadism. In patients with primary hypogonadism, the condition stems from a problem with the gonads themselves and can have a variety of causes ranging from infection to genetic disorders.

On the other hand, central hypogonadism is brought on by problems with the pituitary and hypothalamus glands in the brain. Central hypogonadism can also have a wide array of causes such as brain tumors, radiation and nutritional deficiencies.

It is important to note that men and women may experience different symptoms of hypogonadism.

Common symptoms of hypogonadism in men are:

  • Low libido
  • Osteoporosis
  • Muscle loss
  • Reduced growth of penis and testicles
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Infertility
  • Breast enlargement
  • Loss of body hair

Common symptoms of hypogonadism in women are:

  • Lack of sex drive
  • Slow or absent breast growth
  • Energy and mood changes
  • Body hair loss
  • Hot flashes
