Varicocele or not

You can sometimes feel the epididymis if you examine closely, but for it to be that prominent it would typically have to be infected, or sometimes in men who have had a vasectomy it can become somewhat more prominent.

My money is on Varicocele. Lay down on your back for 20-30 minutes and see if you can still feel the “tubes” as prominently, or feel first thing in the morning before you get up. You will probably still feel them, but are they as prominent?

I bet they will be much smaller and more relaxed. That is a Varicocele.

Do varicocele affect sperm count in anyway?I have read different opinions on this but I was wondering since mine ain’t advanced it might not or if there is anyone here who have a varicocele and sperm count is still ok

The consensus is that varicoceles don’t change sperm count so much as they affect the quality of sperm you’ve already made.

Instead of diagnosing yourself (and worrying here for days), ask your doctor to have a look and determine what’s going on.



You seem to be VERY fixated on sperm count for some reason. If it bothers you to the point that it appears that it is, whack into a cup and get it counted.

Go see a physician, he will give you a specimen container, jerk into it and he will either count it himself or have a lab do it. Question answered.

Excuse me while I whip this out.
