hi there, astheno means decreased motility and terato means that the sperms are not of normal morphology.While the cause for decreased motility is mostly unknow, environmental pollutants, previous inflammation; epididymitis, prostate, urethritis, etc.due sexually transmitted diseases and Chromosomal / genetic disorders could be the cause for teratozoospermia.You need to visit an infertility specialist who may be able to guide you to a course of treatment. Take care.
