How long will it take to see the results of a varicolelectomy?

back to FAQ list

It takes 78 days from the beginning of the sperms' development until they are ready to be ejaculated. This is a continuous process very much like an assembly line. At any given time there should be millions of sperms at all stages of development. It therefore takes a minimum of four months to see any significant improvement in the semen analysis after a varicocelectomy. Increased improvements can often be seen for up to two years. If, however, there has been no improvement within six months, other options should be simultaneously considered. A varicocelectomy does not in any way negatively affect the sperm and while waiting for improvement, additional and alternative steps can be taken by the couple to optimize sperm quality and pregnancy outcome.
