Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
Firstly, Sperm count per ml is lower than required (normal is >20million / ml as per WHO1999).
But total sperm count is normal. Its because, as per WHO, normal volume of semen is taken as 2 ml.
But The morphology is quite devastating. Required motility is >25% active motile and total motility is > 50%.
Morphology of the sperm is very bad.
So, over all you have low sperm concentration with low sperm motility and mostly abnormal sperm.
The semen analysis report is not OK. The problem is very severe.
Consult with an infertility specialist for further investigation and management.
