Can a varicocele have a negative impact on libido?

By Rebeca Reus.
Last Update: 12/19/2018

Yes, there exist cases of varicocele where the man has experienced a decrease of libido, probably due to abnormal testosterone levels. Nonetheless, although it is possible, it is uncommon.

Also, this diminished libido as a result of varicocele can lead to sexual impotence, but only in very severe or extreme cases.
