there are two options for treatment of varicocele-
1)surgical ligation
2)Catheter direct embolization which is an outpatient procedure.
There is no proven ayurvedic treatment for varicocele.
The low sperm motility is as a result of varicocele. There is increased temperature around testicles due to blood collection, which in turn hampers sperm production adversely. I would suggest you to get it treated as soon as possible to avoid any permanent damage to your testes. Thank you.
