Endocrine conditions impacting male reproduction
A variety of conditions affect male reproduction, with a number of these male reproductive disorders directly or partially associated with the endocrine system. Male reproductive disorders caused by chromosomal abnormalities, such as Klinefelter’s syndrome, or hormonal disorders including Kallmann syndrome, can result in low testosterone (hypogonadism), erectile dysfunction and decreased sperm production.
There are many male reproductive disorders that affect male reproduction with a wide variety of symptoms. Male reproductive disorders that affect the endocrine system typically result in symptoms including:
- Low testerosterone (hypogonadism)
- Erectile dysfunction
