Thanks for posting your query.
The following are the usual parameters for a normal semen analysis:
Count-More than 20 million sperm/ml
Motility-More than 50% motile
Morphology-More than 50% normal morphology
Semen Volume-2-5 ml
White Blood Cells-Less than 1 million/ml
So your lab report is good except few bacteria count.
There can be possibility of skin bacterial contamination during semen collection.
So, to rule out this possibility get your repeat semen analysis done.
If bacteria still persist, they can be treated easily according to their susceptibility to particular antibiotic.
I hope you will be satisfied with my answer. I will be available for your further queries.
