Trouble TTC

Varicocele Anyone?

As I've mentioned in other posts my husband's SA came back with low count.

We had an appointment with our GP who checked for Varicocele and said in his opinion there is moderate presence on the left side only (most commonly seen on the left).  He only did an exam not an ultrasound at this point.  He's referring us to a urologist through the hospital as that's much quicker than at the fertility clinic- maybe 2-3 months for an appointment.

Just wondering if anyone had any experience and whether they had the  procedure to correct along with the outcome?

  • Hi
    My fiance has a variocele in his testicle, we've been trying to conceive for 5 years. He's been told it's a class 3 one and we are awaiting a operation date. The urologist has assured us that it will help us to conceive once its gone so fingers crossed! 

  • Welcome.  I am sorry you have to be here but glad you joined us.  Fx that the surgery goes well.
