Thanks for your query.

I have read your query & I understand your concerns.

The sperm count appears to be fine except for motility.

Please get antioxidant tablets prescribed from your doctor which will help in improving motility.

Remember to repeat the test after 3 months which will show improvement in the motility.

Even otherwise if you wish to hurry please see an infertility specialist and go ahead with IUI procedure. It will help in people with low motility.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
