Thanks for your query.Based on the report of your semen analysis that you have posted it appears that you have what is called as Asthenoterratozoospermia meaning there by that %tage of active motile sperms is very low and morphology of the sperm is also not normal.

Presence of 20-25 WBC is suggestive of active infection either in seminal vesicle or prostate.
Please tae antibiotics like Cefotaxime for 3weeks and repeat semen analysis after one month.

Normal count forward moving sperm for effective fertilisation as per WHO standards should be minimum 10-15%.
Unfortunately there are no medicines that can increase the motility of sperms.
Please consult qualified Infertility Specialist to explore the possibility of impregnate your wife with the help of newly assisted reproductive techniques like IVF or ICSI.
