HYPOGONADISM PANEL, FEMALES

Hypogonadism means a diminished functional activity of the gonads that may result in reduced sex hormone biosynthesis. Low androgen (e.g., testosterone) levels are referred to as hypoandrogenism and low estrogen (e.g., estradiol) as hypoestrogenism, and may occur as symptoms of hypogonadism in both sexes. Other hormones produced by the gonads which may be decreased by hypogonadism include Progesterone, DHEA, Anti-Müllerian hormone, Activin, and Inhibin.
