hypogonadism
Mar 27, 2005

Dear Dr. Young,

Is it possible for hypogonadism to start as soon as 2 months after infection? I have total erectile dsyfunction and am wondering what the story is.

Jim

Response from Dr. Young

Jim-

Since there are many causes of erectile dysfunction, I'd want to know more about your physical and mental health. At first glance, I would think that it's rather unlikely that you'd have HIV-induced hypogonadism to quickly after initial infection-- fortunately, a simple blood test can ascertain if you have low testosterone levels.
