Most men diagnosed with varicoceles do not face fertility issues. Infertility among those with varicoceles, nevertheless, is higher than those without them. The difference lies in the fact that varicoceles interfere with the body’s ability to produce and store sperms.
According to a 2014 study involving 816 men with infertility issues, almost one third were diagnosed with this condition. This rate suggests that this condition is sometimes, but not always, a major factor in infertility. Studies on whether treating varicoceles can increase the chances of fertility are mixed.
According to a 2012 meta-analysis of past studies, treating a varicocele might improve fertility, particularly if the cause of a couple’s infertility is not known. In any case, the scientists warn that the study is still in its nascent stages and evidence is weak, and more research is needed to confirm the analysis.
The major problem with varicoceles is that the enlargement of veins may damage sperm and lower its count. In people with an average sperm count, a varicocele is unlikely to cause infertility.
When a couple is facing problems with conceiving, it is important to undergo a variety of tests, including a sperm count, and not assume that this condition is necessarily the main reason.
Varicoceles are often left untreated. Treatment is offered for people who experience:
There are no synthetic medicines to treat or prevent varicoceles but the pain can be managed by pain killers such as Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen. If required, surgery is the main form of treatment. Another option to treat varicocele is Embolization, which is a non-surgical treatment method that involves briefly blocking the veins.
With its Varicocele kit, Grocare aims to help reduce inflammation of the veins in the scrotum, eliminate the toxins in the body, and finally regulate the body's pH. Made with the richness of natural herbs, Oronerv®, Activiz®, and Acidim® are natural ayurvedic medicines that work in harmony to regulate the blood flow and strengthen valves within the veins, thereby reducing inflammation in the veins of the scrotum.
Herbs such as Commiphora Mukul and Pluchea Lanceolata are mixed to make Oronerv®, which strengthens the valves and inner linings of the veins, thereby improving the blood flow. The product also repairs and synchronizes the neurovascular system with the body. The ingredients used to formulate this product possess anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce excess pressure in the valves and ultimately reduce the symptoms of varicocele.
Activiz® is another useful product in the Varicocele Kit that is marketed in the form of tablets (850g). The product acts as a catalyst to the healing process by improving and synergizing the internal systems. At the same time, it helps maintain a healthy sperm count.
Acidim® is another essential ayurvedic medicine in the kit that reduces the production of free radicals in the body as well as detoxifies the body, which helps in relieving the pressure in the valves and enables it to function correctly. Embellia Ribesis is an important constituent of this medicine that helps with increasing the blood flow throughout the body.
Together, Oronerv®, Activiz®, and Acidim® help in treating varicocele naturally over time.
Two tablets of Oronerv® should be taken twice a day (post breakfast and dinner), two tablets of Acidim® should be taken a day thrice (post breakfast, lunch & dinner), and two tablets of Activiz® should be taken twice daily (post breakfast and dinner), respectively. The tablets should be taken for 4-6 months or as prescribed by the doctor. If taken within the prescribed dosage, Oronerv®, Activiz®, and Acidim® do not cause any known side-effects.
In case of the occurrence of symptoms such as constipation, irregular bowel movement or acidity, Grocare India recommends patients to take a Xembran® tablet after breakfast and two tablets post-dinner. Individuals can see the benefits within a few weeks of the kit's usage, in the form of symptomatic relief. Results may vary depending on the severity of the condition, age, diet, and lifestyle. Patients are provided with a diet chart along with the Varicocele kit.
