Now me and my wife are trying for pregnancy. Is there any relation between Infertility and Free Testosterone Level?
Is Testosterone replacement will affect fertility?

welcome to the forum.
Your semen analysis is normal.
Free testosterone is low as you have mentioned and as per the report.
You need to get examined physically to see if u have clinical features of low testosterone levels.
Then, a repeat value and serum PSA need to be done before replacement therapy with testosterone is planned.
It should help you in getting better erection and better chance of fertility.
Also, 4 months is too less a time and more time is needed to get pregnant.

So I need direct consultation with Urologist,right? Now we are trying for pregnancy. Is it better to use any medication for improving the quality of erection, instead of hormne replacement? Kindly advise.

Welcome back.
Of course, a direct consultation is a must.
There are erection enhancing medicines available which can be given and they require prescription.
These can be either given alone or in addition to testosterone.
Best regards
