Hypogonadism is classified as either primary or secondary. Primary hypogonadism is caused by diseases or defects in the testicles that affect the production of testosterone. Secondary hypogonadism is due to problems in the hypothalamus or pituitary gland that cause high levels of the hormone prolactin.

Vacuum devices for erectile dysfunction, also called pumps, offer an alternative to medication. To use a pump, the penis is placed inside a cylinder. Then the pump draws air out of the cylinder to create a partial vacuum around the penis causing it to fill with blood, leading to an erection. An elastic band worn around the base of the penis is used to maintain the erection during intercourse. Individuals should discuss the use of this device with their doctor, and especially the elastic band use to avoid potential penile damage.
