Varicocele

Varicocele is the enlargement of veins within your scrotum. The veins inside the scrotum swell and become prominent. This is similar to varicose veins that occur in your legs. In the case of varicocele, this happens in your scrotum, which is the bag that holds your testicles. Before we come to the best homeopathic medicines for varicocele, let us understand a bit more about varicocele, its causes and symptoms.

What is Varicocele

Varicocele is the swelling or enlargement of this pampiniform plexus. It might feel like a bag of worms. It is usually visible when you stand up and not when you lie down.

Pampiniform plexus is a vein within the spermatic cord. The spermatic cord also houses the Vas Deferans and the Testicular Artery. The Vas Deferans is the tube that carries the sperm. The Testicular Artery supplies blood to the testicles.

The Pampiniform Plexus cools the arterial blood. The human body produces sperm most efficiently when the temperature is around 34.5 C. This is slightly lower than the body’s normal temperature of 37 C. The Pampiniform Plexus plays this important role of cooling the blood through a heat exchange mechanism.

Incidence of Varicocele

Varicocele affects about 10 to 15% of males. It mostly affects young boys and men, more so between the ages of 15-25. It usually affects one side, more commonly the left side. That is because the male anatomy is slightly different on the left side.

Causes of Varicocele

Medical science does not know the exact cause of varicocele. There are some theories and beliefs. The most plausible theory or belief is that the valves in the veins lose their efficiency. This allows the blood to collect in the veins and not flow properly. This collected blood causes the swelling in the veins. There is a difference in the anatomical structure of the large veins on the left and the right testicles that connect to the heart. Therefore more pressure is needed to move the blood from the left side towards the heart. This also explains why the incidence of varicocele is more on the left side.

Symptoms of Varicocele

In most cases, there are no symptoms of varicocele. It is just the swelling or the wiry swelling. In some cases, it may cause pain or discomfort. The pain may be sharp in nature or just dull discomfort. Such pain tends to worsen with exertion or as the day progresses. It may also increase by standing for long. There may be some problem with sperm production.

In some cases, it affects the production of sperms and results in infertility. As I have explained earlier, a cooler temperature is needed for production of sperms. The inefficient flow of blood in the pampiniform plexus vein fails to cool the blood by heat exchange. This does not cool the temperature of the testicles to the desired levels. This affects the production of sperms and results in infertility.

Treatment of Varicocele

The conventional system of medicine hardly has any treatment for varicocele. Only treatment that allopathy has for varicocele is surgery. The varicocele often recurs or returns after surgery. Therefore it is not at all a permanent and a viable solution.

Homeopathic treatment for varicocele

Homeopathy is very effective for the treatment of varicocele. Homeopathic medicines work at a deeper level and are able to improve the efficiency of the valves of the veins in the scrotum. Once the valves are able to perform their function properly, the blood flows normally. Normal blood flow means that the swelling reduces on its own.
