Hello and welcome to HCM,

First I will discuss your husbands problem.
For the sperms to fertilize the ovum, 50% of the sperms should show rapid progressive forward motion..
The morphology of atleast 50% sperms should be normal.
In your case the motility of the sperms is low (only 44%) and none of the sperms show rapid progressive motion.
Secondly, only 4% sperms show normal morphology.
Thus, both the parameters motility and morphology are abnormal.
It is not possible for your husband to bear a baby.

PCOD can be managed by medication. Females with PCOD can bear babies with treatment.

Thanks and take care.
