Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Asthenospermia.

Normal count of active motile sperm as per W.H.O standard should be more than 30% However most of the infertility centres in the world accept active motile sperms count of 15% as normal to effect fertilization of female egg.

As regards surgery for varicocele it can be assured that your perm motility will improve after surgery.

Please consult qualified Urologist or Infertility specialist for evaluation and further treatment.

Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Look, your semen analysis report shows normal sperm count is within normal limit.

Motility is not at all abnormal. Total motility is within normal limit As WHO 2010 indicated a normal motility is >40% rapid + sluggish. And only rapid should be >25%.

So, i do not think that you need anything. Considering the count, it can be said that there is enough motile sperm.

So, do nothing. Every thing will be fine.
