- Dull pain, especially after prolonged standing or physical exertion
- Reduced production of sperm
- Hormonal imbalance

Natural Ayurvedic Treatment for Varicocele
Western medicines treat varicocele with anti inflammatory drugs to relieve pain and inflammation. These medications, like all other allopathic medicines have long ranging side-effects.
In contrast Ayurvedic treatment for Varicocele focuses on 3 things:
- Relieving symptoms
- Curtailing progress of the disease
- Preventing complications
It relies on natural herbs and detoxification of the body to relieve pain and balance the 3 doshas. These treatments are known to strengthen the elasticity of the veins.
Ayurvedic scriptures mention cystic swelling in the veins or Sira Granthi which are a very near description to varicocele. They specifically mention treatments for different causes and symptoms of varicocele.
The main prescriptions to handle the disease are based in line with the treatments of:
- Vitiated vayu
- Piles and hemorrhoids

- Hot, fresh and unctuous foods that are sweet, sour and salty
- Allowing natural passage of stool, wind, urine
- Avoiding exertion, extreme cold, sex, staying awake at night
- Medications which help in the passage of wind
Varicocele can also be treated in line with management of piles and hemorrhoids.
The treatment in line with that of vata kapha and vata kaphaja includes:
- Mild fomentation
- Bath tub sudation
- Decoctions of radish, arka patra, triphala and the leaves of bamboo
