Thanks for writing to us.

In a otherwise normal semen sample, presence of 5-6 pus cells can be considered as normal.

The semen report that you have provided is absolutely within normal limits. Reproductive capability of your husband is normal.

A semen sample showing pus cells -8-10/HPF does not need treatment all the time. There is more to pus cells and bacteria in semen than what meets the eye, and would confuse many primary physicians and the patients alike.

You need not worry at all as this is just a normal variation.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.
