I am writing this post in total shock after just learning of the passing of Michael Jackson. Please forgive me if there are more typographical errors than usual as I am not really focusing as I usually do.
This is one of those deaths that take a while to sink in. Due to my age, an example would be Princess Diana because when Elvis Presley and John F. Kennedy died, they had not much impact on me as I was still a little girl. Michael Jackson was surely a legend in his time who sadly had a difficult life. May his soul rest in peace.
On to the subject of my post. I thought that I was through focusing on male infertility for now until I read one of my fellow bloggers post on a condition that I have never heard about before. My husband and I struggled with infertility for over a decade during which my husband had an evaluation done and this condition was never mentioned as anything to look out for. The condition is varicoceles, which really is varicose veins found in the testicles. I know varicose veins is a very common condition, but I really did not know that they could appear in the testicles, of all places.
