A new study presented this week at the Radiological Society of North America conference in Chicago showed that a minimally invasive surgical procedure may help restore male fertility.

Some experts believe that male infertility is commonly caused by the formation of varicose veins in the testicle, called varicoceles.

These are a tangled network of blood vessels which form due to blood circulation problems.

They are believed to be relatively common with around 10-15 per cent of men being affected. In many cases they cause no adverse effects, however it is thought they may allow warm blood to pool in the testicle, increasing the scrotum temperature and reducing sperm count and motility.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
