Brief Answer:
there's usually no risk on operation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to HCM. After varicocele surgery, whether for infertility or due to recurrent pain, abstinence is advisable for 1-2 weeks.Once the stitches come off, whether open surgery or laporoscopic, check with your doctor if it's ok to resume intercourse or masturbation.you're welcome to clear any more doubts you may have.
