Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Your semen analysis report indicates low sperm count ( normal is > 15 millions / ml or 39 million total count as per WHO 2010).

Motility is within normal limit ( as per WHO 2010, normal motility is > 50%).

Morphology is within normal limit ( as per WHO 2010, normal morphology is > 04%).

So, you have only low sperm count.

It is not caused by taking diclofenac.

You should take some coenzyme Q and vitamin E group of drugs. Otherwise, you need nothing.
