Variococele - Causes of Male Infertility

This is a medical condition which affects the blood vessels of the penis. These veins are designed to channel blood away from the penis and scrotum but if they become diseased then the ability to do so is affected.

These diseased veins look very similar to the varicose veins seen on the legs.

What happens is that these veins become enlarged and swollen which causes the blood to pool within them. This can then cause the temperature of the scrotum to rise which reduces the number of sperm in the testis.

If you develop variococele then it doesn’t automatically mean that you will become infertile but it does increase that risk.
