In brief: 3 months...

A complete physical disappearance after varicocele embolization may be impossible but its potential benefit to improve sperm count and motility may take place in 3 months since a cycle of sperm formation (spermatogenesis) is about 74 days.
So, do semen exam in 3 months. More, ask your doctor who performed this procedure. Have you got it for oligospermia or of poor testicular growth in teenagers?
