Objective: One of the causes of male infertility is varicocele that has negative effects on sperm parameters.By doing varicocelectomy that it is an effective method for the treatment, there will be significant recovery in sperm parameters. The aim of this study is to evaluate sperm parameters before and after Varicocelectomy and a pregnancy rate in patients. Methods: This cross-sectional study has been performed on patients with primary and secondary infertility who underwent varicocelectomy during 2009-2014 in hospitals of Sari, north of Iran. Demographic data has been extracted from hospital records and necessary information about spermogram has been gathered according to a checklist designed for this purpose. We used a questionnaire that contained demographic characteristics of patients and values of variables before and after varicocelectomy. Finally all data have been analyzed statistically using SPSS ver.20.The significance level was set at 0.05. Results: of51 studied cases with the mean age of 37.3 years 50.98 percentswere above 40 years of old. 24 patients had varicocele grade II and 27 ones had grade three. Bilateral varicocelewas the dominant type in patients. The final finding represented that sperm indexes improved significantly after the varicocelectomy (p=0.001). Conclusion: Results of our study showed that varicocelectomy leads to significant differences in sperm parameters (count, motility and morphology), while the fertility rate also significantly increased.
