Having sex can be both beneficial or damaging for varicocele. It is critical to identify exactly how having sex affects you. First, let's identify the risks and learn how to manage them. Then, let's learn about the benefits and how to maximize them.
The Negative Effects of Sex on Varicocele
Increased Volume of Blood to the Testicles: Of course, there is an increase in testicular blood flow when you become aroused, have sex, and ejaculate. In men with varicocele, an increase in testicular blood flow is typically accompanied by an increase in testicular blood pooling.
Varicocele Toxic Blood Pooling: Pooled blood in the testicular veins damages the veins and testicles. Blood pooling causes local inflammation, hypersensitivity, heat stress, hyper-hydration, oxidation, toxin build-up, hypoxia, and lack of nutrient exchange. Blood pooling is toxic, it damages the veins, vein valves, testicles, sperm, sperm head, sperm tail, and sperm DNA.
Local Inflammation: Varicocele makes the testicular veins vulnerable to physical damage from rubbing and tugging. The minor rubbing and tugging from sexual activity causes minor damage and irritation, increasing varicocele inflammation. The physical damage plus the chemical damage compound together, significantly increasing inflammation.
Infections & Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs): Mild, moderate, and severe infections can all contribute to varicocele. Most scrotal and penis-related infections can increase blood pooling in the testicular veins. Even exposure to mildly harmful bacteria can increase inflammation and cause damage if left untreated.
Testicular Hyperthermia: Testicular blood flow increases pre-, during- and post-sex. This means higher levels of blood pooling. Moreover, local inflammation from sex disrupts the counter-current cooling mechanism of the pampiniform plexus veins, resulting in testicular overheating.
