Active motile sperm not found in the semen analysis report. What are the options?

Dear Doctor, I am 37 years old. I have been married for 9 years and trying for a baby for last 3 years. First time I am taking treatment from an IVF center. Recent report shows my wife is OK and my sperm analysis report shows Sperm Count= 2.5, Motility =20% and Normal form 05%. Conclusion of the report shows actively motile sperm was not found . Does it mean that i have no ability to get my wife pregnant ? Please suggest i am in a tense. Thanks

Your semen analysis report is definitely not normal.
At such a low count, with no actively motile sperm, the chances of pregnancy are very less.
Normally, IUI ( intra uterine insemination ) is recommended for low sperm counts, but in your case, the normal forms are also few and motility is nil.
I would advise you to consult an Andrologist, as there are various causes of this abnormal semen analysis.
Some forms are treatable, whereas others are not.
Please do not lose hope, as there are options such as IVF ( in vitro fertilization ) and ICSI ( intra cytoplasmic sperm injection ) for an extremely low count also.
Take care.
