So I was contemplating on how my average body temp went from an unstable but consistent 97.4ish to a steady 98.6 within a week of my varicocele procedure and it got me wondering if the body would down regulated your body temp if a varicocele was causing your gonads to operated at too high of a temperature. If so this could be a way for men to tell if they have a varicocele that is impacting testicular function.
No proof just a hypothesis.
Interesting hypothesis. Or perhaps it is some poorly understood HPA connection?
I looked and just do not see a study on this. There may be one, but I don't see it of course. It wouldn't surprise me if they hadn't studied it, though, considering they usually only look at the most directly affected variables due to the expense of most studies.
