Male Tube Blockage is any obstructions in the vas deferens or epididymis (the tubes that transport fertile sperm). Varicoceles (varicose veins) in the testicles are the most common cause of male tube blockages. Sexually transmitted diseases, such as Chlamydia or gonorrhoea, are also linked to tube blockage problems. There are usually no symptoms of having blocked tubes.


Surgery can be performed to try to eliminate the physical obstruction. Surgery is not always successful. Acupuncture and/or herbal treatments are used to reduce swelling and inflammation and promote healing.
