Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

Varicocele causes an extra blood pooling in the enlarged veins in the scrotum which warms the nearby testicles unnaturally and decreases the sperm production.

It may cause discomfort leading to a heavy, dragging feeling in the scrotum.
It can damage the cells that make testosterone and may lead to a decreased overall testosterone level, which may either affect the fertility or sex drive.

Stopping having sex or masturbation is not a solution to your problem. If the varicocele does not get reduced by conservative measures then surgical treatment is advisable.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wish you good health.

Regards
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Hello,
Thanks for writing again.

Your doctor has suggested that you undergo conservative treatment for 6 months. If the condition improves by conservative treatment, then surgery might not be needed.

To get rid of the pain, I would suggest the following:
a.     Tie the suspensory bandage tightly
b.     Taking oral mild pain killers like tablet disprin 325 mg every 4-6 hours with food will help you.

Varicocele, if left untreated, can negatively affect your fertility levels in the future. It can also cause atrophy of the testis ( there is a decrease in the size of the testis).
If proper treatment is instituted, you would be able to lead a normal sexual life.
Hope my answer is helpful.
