Welcome to HealthcareMagic

You are suffering from severe oligo-astheno-teratozoospermia that is all important sperm paramenters( count, motility, morphology) are depressed. Hope you have got semen analysis done from standardized laboratory. Get yourself examined by fertility specialist/Urologist. Get your hormone levels ( FSH & Testosterone ) done. In the mean time you can start taking antioxidants tablets which helps to improve sperm parameters. Try to lose weight if you are overweight, include citrus fruits and green vegetables in your diet. Chances of pregnancy will be low if you try naturally. IUI may help. If condition doesnt improve IVF/ICSI is last resort.

All the best

Hello, Welcome to HCm, I am Dr. Das

Look, your sperm count is below normal ( normal is >15 million / ml).

Mobility is also within normal limit( normal is > 40%)

Morphology is also within normal limit ( normal is >04%).

SO, you should consult with infertility specialist about the low sperm count.
