Answer

No increase in mortality is observed in patients with hypogonadism. Morbidity for men and women includes infertility and an increased risk of osteoporosis. In women, an increased risk of severe osteoporosis is noted. In men, hypogonadism causes decreased muscle strength and sexual dysfunction.
