does anyone have a husband with a varicocele?

My husband and I have been TTC for a few months now, he has a varicocele so we might need to seek medical help at some point. He's known about it since he was in his early twenties (he's 30 now) but never went to a dr to really get any info on it. He was experiencing pain last month, so I practically forced him to make an appointment. He has a hernia now, and he also got an ultrasound of his varicocele. That's as far as we got. His insurance doesn't cover anything fertility related. So rather than rack up debt, we are waiting to add him on my insurance in July. I of course am a nervous wreck, he's done research online and we know surgery sometimes helps boost sperm related issues. In the chanc it doesn't, I am mentally preparing myself for <a href="">IVF</a>. Something I never thought I would need. I could be getting ahead of myself here, we might conceive naturally for all I know! I was wondering if anyone else is in the same boat? How far have you gotten in the diagnosis, and what are your options for conceiving?
