In brief: Idiopathic means
Idiopathic in medicine means that there is no discoverable cause for you developing deficiency of the hormones from the pituitary gland that stimulate the gonads, they are called lh and fsh.
If you develop deficiencies at a later age you do have to be investigated by an endocrinologist because all causes have to be excluded to be called idiopathic.
