hi, welcome to HCM i am Dr Das
first of all, sperm count is normal, total sperm count is normal. viability is also normal . progressive sperm (tththethat means linear and non linear both)should be more than 50% as per WHO1999. so, you also have normal number of progressive sperm.
but the morphology should be checked again by special stain.
