Is it okay to use a hot tub or sauna with varicocele?
Can you even take a hot shower with varicocele?
Look, there is nothing wrong with using a hot tub or sauna, and most definitely nothing wrong with hot showers. However, excessive or prolonged elevation of scrotal temperatures can have negative implications on pain and infertility. So, do your best to keep your testicles at a normal temperature on average. And, look, reduce long-duration heating (e.g. hot tubs or saunas) if it worsens your symptoms.
I should however make a note that early in your treatment (e.g. three to four weeks), it is ideal to minimize all stressors, and that means no hot tub or sauna. However, after the three to four weeks of treatment, once you have gained some good results, your testicles will be much healthier and more resilient to stress.
Dos & Don'ts of Hot Tub, Sauna, and Hot Showers
✗ Don't expose your testicles to excessive or prolonged heat stress
✗ Don't worry occasional heat exposure
✗ Don't worry about keeping your testicles cool all day
✓ DO I highly advise a cool or cold shower after hot tub or sauna
✓ DO run some cool water over your testicles after hot tub, sauna, or a hot shower
✓ DO keep your testicles cool in general, not 100% of all day
The Right Underwear Makes Difference
Icing (Wedges) Vs. Natural Cooling
So, it is a good idea to ice your testicles? Well, I’ve personally helped treat thousands of clients with varicocele, and the ones that ice their testicles usually end up with testicular sensitivity. I don’t recommend icing as a form of therapy for either improving fertility or as a varicocele treatment.
A few of my clients say that the only thing that gives them relief is icing. I tell them—look probably the thing that’s causing your excessive sensitivity is the icing itself. So, stop icing, and just cool (not cold—only cool!) your testicles. And you know what they find? Decreased sensitivity—and less pain.
Important! Cooling treatments are beneficial, but your general goal is to normalize testicular temperature.
Varicocele Therapeutic Underwear
So, when I manufactured the STUD Varicocele Underwear, not only did I design it to be sexy, but to also allow the testicles to cool naturally. They do this by simply having a feel free cooling mesh at the front that allows natural heat release. As well, they also support the testicles forward and away from the thighs so that they can cool better. What does this mean? It means that the testicles can naturally approach their normal temperature.
Icing simply over-cools your testicles, and is simply not the right approach. So, again, avoid over-cooling and go for normal and natural temperature.
Cooling Underwear Dos & Don’ts
✗ Don’t ice your testicles
✗ Don’t over-cool your testicles
✓ DO wear cooling underwear
✓ DO allow natural testicular cooling
