Puberty: If you had hypogonadism as a child you would not go through puberty or only mildly go through it. Men would not grow beards, have strong erections and have small testicles. Women would not ovulate nor produce estrogen thus would not undergo puberty with the associated hair and breast development. If its recent you would loose sex drive gain weight, if so blood tests will prove it.

Hypogonadism: I have conductive extensive research on the subject. One of my medical students is currently putting the finishing touches on a ground-breaking paper on this subject. Until it is accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal it is merely heresay. That is my official statement on the matter. Sorry.

Lo function gonad: This is a term to describe a low functioning gonad be it testicle or ovary. When these organs fail to release their hormones physical changes occur. Men will have low testosterone thus wont shave much if at all , height and weight is altered as well. Females will lack estrogen thus not go into puberty as the men. These are all bypass able with hormone therapy
