TTC with Varicocele . should we consider varicocele surgery or not ?

HI, my DH and I have been TTC for 2 months now, we both scheduled appointments to have ourselves checked to make sure we had no problems to worry about in the future. We were surprised to find that his sperm motility was lower than normal and his morphology was at 4% (KRUGER), he was also diagnosed with a varicocele . We have only been trying to conceive for 2months , should we consider varicocele surgery or not? My husband is 36 and I am 33, we are a bit confused if we should wait a few months or go ahead with it. Hope you can advice us on what we should do. Thank you

welcome to healthcaremagic,

dear your semen analysis is surely showing asthenospermia and probably oligo also exists although you have not mentioned it. what is the grade of your varicocele. if your varicocele is grade 3 you should surely get operated as early as possible. time is running away for you.

Best of luck
