Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Look, your semen analysis report indicates normal sperm count (normal is > 15 ml as per WHO 2010).

The motility is lower than normal limit (as per WHO 2010, grade a should be >25% or all total >50%).

The Normal sperm count is also within normal limit (as per WHO 2010, normal sperm should be > 04%).

The pus cells, RBCs are within normal limit.( as per WHO 2010, normal semen should not contain any pus cells or RBCs).

So, overall, your report indicates just low sperm motility. For this you can take vitamin E and coenzyme q. As you have high sperm count, i think there will not be any problem. So, do not worry.
