Experimental: Hormone/semen measurements before and after varicocelectomy
We will measure sex-hormone and semen quality in patients both before and after varicocelectomy. The purpose is to asses if preoperative hormone levels are predictive for who will have improved semen quality after surgery.
Procedure: Hormone and semen measurements before varicocelectomy
Before surgery we will measure sex-hormone levels and semen parameters. This will be repeated after the varicocelectomy to record any changes.
- Change in semen parameters [ Time Frame: February 2017 (anticipated duration of the study) ]
- Change in hormone levels [ Time Frame: February 2017 (anticipated end of the study) ]
