Hi, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
According to the reports, motility of the sperm is lower than accepted value (>50% as per WHO1999) which was previously normal. And Morphology is also not within acceptable range. Liquefaction time is abnormal in recent test because of lower sperm motility.
For IVF only few sperm with normal health and motility needed. That means good sperms are extracted from semen which are then utilized for IVF. So as there is some good sperm IVF can be tried.
What about your husbands hormonal profile Like FSH and LH, prolactin? If you have not done yet go for it.
