Hi, Welcome to HCM
the report you mentioned indicates - low sperm count ( normal is > 20 million /ml as per WHO 1999).
Low sperm motility ( progressive + sluggishly motile - should be >50 % as per WHO1999). The morphology of the sperm is also compromised.
So, it is clear that there is little chance of having a baby.
But I think it can be improved by proper treatment and pregnancy is possible by using invitro fertilization.
So, consult with any infertility specialist.
