Varicocele Treatment

Varicocele Treatment in Delhi, India

Males who don’t have any sperm in their semen happen to have small pockets of sperm in their testicles. These pockets have various healthy sperms which can be used for IVF ICSI treatments. These pockets are accessed by experienced fertility specialist doctors and a few of them are harvested using a needle biopsy-like technique.

How are the sperms retrieved by using Micro TESA/TESE for IVF?

Veins in your scrotum (the pouch of skin that holds your testicles) that expand cause a varicocele. The pampiniform plexus is the name given to these veins. Ten to fifteen males out of 100 have varicocele. Males between 15 to 25 are more likely to have them. It is comparable to developing varicose veins in your leg. Reduced sperm quantity and quality brought on by a varicocele can occasionally result in infertility. Testicles may also shrink as a result.

The left side of your scrotum is where varicoceles are most frequently encountered, and they typically form throughout puberty. Your scrotum’s right and left sides have different anatomical structures. Varicoceles can occur on both sides, but they are quite uncommon. Some varicoceles do not impair sperm production. Let’s understand what varicocele is and why one should choose Mother Divine Fertility, the best IVF Centre in South Delhi.

Why does varicocele develop?

Each testicle is held up by a spermatic cord. The veins, arteries, and nerves that support these glands are likewise located within the cords. One-way valves in healthy scrotal veins allow blood to flow from the testicles to the scrotum and then back to the heart.
There are moments when the blood doesn’t flow through the veins as it should, starting to pool there and growing larger. Over time, a varicocele steadily grows. The precise cause of a varicocele is unknown, and there are no known risk factors for its development.

What are the symptoms of varicocele?

You might not have any symptoms related to a varicocele. But you might experience –
  • A lump in one of your testicles
  • Swelling in your scrotum
  • Visibly enlarged or twisted veins in your scrotum, which are often described as looking like a bag of worms
  • A dull, recurring pain in your scrotum

When to see a doctor for varicocele?

The majority of the time, varicoceles are painless and don’t need to be treated. In actuality, they are frequently discovered during a standard physical examination or fertility evaluation.
However, your doctor could advise treatment if the varicocele is large, your testicles are too tiny, your sperm count is low, or you and your spouse are having trouble getting pregnant. You should also talk with your doctor if you notice any of the following symptoms:
  • Dull, aching, or throbbing pain in the scrotum, testicle, or groin
  • Swelling of the scrotum
  • Shrinkage of the affected testicle.
  • A lump or bulge on the scrotum
  • Changes in the size of one or both testicles
  • Impaired fertility

What are the treatments for varicocele?

There are no medications to cure or prevent varicoceles. However, medicines (such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen) may lessen the discomfort. Surgery is the main type of treatment when it is required. Embolization is a non-surgical therapeutic method that temporarily blocks the veins.
For surgery: Varicocele surgery can be done in a variety of methods. All entail stopping the pampiniform plexus veins’ ability to carry blood. Surgery is performed when completely unconscious. The two most common surgeries are:
  • Using the microscopic varicocelectomy method, the physician makes a 1 cm incision above the scrotum. The surgeon avoids the testicular artery, lymphatic drainage, and vas deferens while tying off every little vein with the microscope. The patient is discharged from the hospital the same day after the 2- to 3-hour procedure.
  • With the laparoscopic varicocelectomy method, the surgeon inserts tiny tubes into the belly and ties veins. This process is quicker and lasts for 30 to 40 minutes. The patient goes back home that day.
Infertility is a frequent side effect of a varicocele. If you and your spouse are experiencing trouble conceiving, talk to your doctor about visiting a reproductive expert.
