MALE INFERTILITY AND VARICOCELES

Posted Sep 12 2011 12:00am


Varicoceles are abnormally dilated testicular veins found in the scrotum. This condition is found in approximately 15% of the general population of men, 35%  with primary infertility and 81%  with secondary infertility.
Men with varicoceles are still able to father children, but there is clear evidence that this condition is detrimental to male infertility, causing decreased testicular volume and impaired sperm quality. Furthermore, studies in animals and humans shows that varicoceles can cause progressive testicular damage over time.
Treatment Due to the fact that not all men with varicoceles are deemed infertile, treatment for all conditions is unnecessary. It is there recommended that only in cases involving infertile couples, where abnormal semen parameters are detected that surgery be contemplated. Surgery includes open surgical, laparoscopic and percutaneous techniques. I am a believer in herbs, as it helped me conquer my infertility and so I would encourage you to seek herbal treatment as well.
