I had surgery approx 15 years ago for a testicular varicocele.

Will this have in ANY way affected my fertility?

Hey Steve...I don't have an answer to your question, but just wanted to suggest maybe posting it on one of the expert forums. There's a doctor who answers questions on urology here: http://www.medhelp.org/forums/show/113

Good luck! Hope everything will turn our OK for you!

Hi Steve, I would think that it would help, it has been suggested to my husband to have that surgery to allow the blood to flow properly to allow the testicles to cool for sperm to survive.

Hi Heather, I know that I posted my progesterone timing question in the expert forum, I saw it there but then it moved to the member side. How does that happen I wonder? Should I repost over there?
