Further Outpatient Care

The care of the patient depends on the goals of treatment, such as induction of puberty in preadolescents or increase in sperm production or ovulation induction in adults. In all cases, monitor the patient for problems associated with hypogonadism. One of the primary health concerns is osteoporosis.
