Varicoceles are enlarged varicose veins that occur in the scrotum. They are very common, and affect about 15 out of 100 men, or 40 out of 100 men with known fertility problems. A varicocele embolization is a nonsurgical procedure that is sometimes done to repair varicoceles.

This procedure involves a catheter being inserted into a large vein in the groin or the neck, and then advanced to the varicocele. The varicocele will then be blocked off by a balloon, a coil, or a type of medicine.

Some experts believe that varicocele embolizaton can help to produce favorable pregnancy rates in men who have the procedure. However, other studies show that the rates of pregnancy in couples who have had varicocele embolizations done are not that different from the pregnancy rates of couples who have not had the procedures done.

Your doctor can help you figure out if treatment is right for your particular case, and how treatment would affect your fertility in the future. In some cases, it may be recommended but not in all cases so it is important to talk to your doctor.

Be careful when and how you use it

I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.

Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment

Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
