Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Your semen analysis report is essentially normal.
The quantity, colour, count, motility, morphology are all normal.
A few pus cells in the semen sample are also normal.
If you are having any problem in fertility or sexual function, then please elaborate further.
Just treated as a report per se, it is normal.
Take care.

We have checked from doctor also. As per him the weight of my wife is on higher side (73 kg, Age 28 years). As per the doctor diganocis fat is deposit on my wife uterus. But she also said that we should wait for some more days as in some cases the pregnancy is seen later stages.

Request you to please suggest some experts comment on this and what preacaution we should take....... and what can be the reason for delay in period.

Firstly, if you are trying to conceive since 2.5 years, please consult an Infertility specialist.
Your wife should be evaluated totally for delayed periods.
Stress, anxiety, weight gain, travelling are common causes of delayed cycles, as well as ingestion of hormonal medications.
Polycystic ovarian is also a common condition responsible for this.
Endometrial damage can lead to delayed and scanty periods.
Your wife's ovarian reserve should be tested, that is, the capacity to form eggs each month.
Detailed pelvic ultrasound and hormonal tests - FSH, LH on day 2, AMH, thyroid hormone profile, serum prolactin , oral glucose tolerance test - should be done.
Fallopian tube patency should be checked via laparoscopy.
IF any problem affecting ovulation is found, then she might require help of ovulation inducing agents to conceive.
Do not waste more time, also ensure that she takes folic acid supplements on time.
Take care.
