Varicocele is a disease of the Veins present in the Testicles.

The Scrotum is a loose bag that carries Testes, which are of the males reproductive organ. It consists of a network of Veins, Arteries, Blood Vessels and Nerves. They supply blood to a male's reproductive organs.
Normally, the Veins carry blood from testes to the Scrotum. But when some thing goes wrong with the valves in the Veins, the blood gets pooled within the Veins. As a result, the Veins in the Scrotum becomes enlarged and elongated which are easily visible by the naked Eyes. It may cause a bad effect on testosterone level in a male, which decreases the sperm production. This may lead to infertility in a male.
It is similar to Varicose Veins that occurs in the Legs.

Causes of Varicocele
The actual cause of Varicocele is not clear. But it is believed that it occurs due to malfunctioning of the on way valves present in the veins that prevent the back flow of blood.

If it is not treated properly, Varicocele may cause

James ( UAE )
22 Apr 2018
Good Day sir,

I am 33 years old, and in 2009 I was told that I am suffering from left varicocele after the doppler test was done and since then I have not done much for that and I continued with mild to heavy burning sensation and heavy ness in my left testicle.
Now recently in 2018 when I decided to get marry, I have done ultra sound and in that it shows,
Few prominent veins noted at the base of both testes (L>R)
Minimal bilateral hydrocele
No varicocele noted bilaterally.

I don't know what exactly this means, I just want to know is it a positive sign or my case has become worse.
And I also want to know which herbs I need to take?
Whether I should proceed with my marriage or shall I prolong?

Thanks and Regards

Honourable Sir,
I am 22 years old. I have been suffering from bilateral varicocele for 7 years. If I am sexually aroused, it causes very pain after some times. Keep in mind that mainly pain causes because of sexual arousal. I have used gotu kola capsule 2000mg per day in divided dosage for 1 month. I have used this according to suggestion of a herbalist. Now my condition is better than before. Now pain does not cause because of sexual arousal. If I use gotu kola for several months or years, will my varicocele go away?
09 Oct 2019
Hey friend
I think you shouldn't take too much of the herb. Is it showing you nay benefits? Much use of the herb is not recommended because of the side effects of the herb. It can create upheaval in the body. Consult with your herbalist regarding the dosage of Gotu kola.
Well, my friend was suggested to take 1 dose of Hamamelis Virginiana 6C from a homeopath. It was 1 drop once a week. It has to be 1 drop in half water glass. He took it for 4 weeks. Check with your doctor first.

Are horse chestnut and butcher's broom is effective for treating varicocele?
12 Mar 2020
There are certain researches that quote the herbs to be effective for Varicocele. However, consumption of herbs should not be done on own. Homeopathic tinctures of these herbs are available and known to be more effective.

Muhammed Umar
27 Jul 2020
Dear Iloka Arinze,
srry 4 what u are passing through, even me i dnt suggest u go 4 surgery because history abounds that majority of those people that opt 4 surgery later regretted in their life as the surgery still never remedied such anomaly. As for the treatment, u will need tribulus terrestris, costus root, mucuna prurien seed and others. those ingredients would kickstart ur body production of gonadotrophin releasing hormones thereby givin rise 2 a surge in ur follicle stimulating hormones n luteinizing hormone, the equilibrum in these 2 hormones stimulate d sertoli cells in ur testes 2 produce enough sperm cells.
