Preview

Testosterone therapy improves psychosocial well-being and peak bone mass in constitutional delayed puberty. Testosterone therapy for failure of puberty due to permanent hypogonadism is essential for timely pubertal development to reduce the risk of psychosocial and psychosexual stresses. Spermatogenesis can be induced or enhanced in a high proportion of men with secondary hypogonadism with gonadotrophin therapy. The management of delayed or failed puberty and fertility is complex and should only be treated by experienced specialist clinicians.
