Hello and welcome to HCM
I have interpreted your semsn analysis report as follows:
Volume: 3.5 ml/ ejaculation, normal volume is 2 ml ejaculation
Concentration: 12 million/ml, This is reduced, normal conc is >20 million/ml
Liquefaction time : 2 hours, normal liquefaction time is upto one hour
Motility: !0% actively motile, 40% sluggish motile. This is abnormal as > 50% sperms should be actively motile
Morphology: 70% have normal morphology. This is normal as > 50% sperms should have normal morphology
Pus cells: 10-15/ High power field

So, your sperm count is low and the motility is low. Asthenospermia implies low motility of the sperms.
The number of pus cells is also increased in the semen which indicates infection in the reproductive tract.

You have an infection so that neeeds to be treated with a course of antibiotics and then get your semen analysis done

Thanks and take care

Hi, welcome to HCM , I am Dr Das
Firstly though the volume is normal but there is sperm count is lower than normal ( normal is > 20 million as per who 1999).
Secondly sluggish and active motile sperm is in normal limit ( as per who1999 normal is > 50%).
Thirdly, the pus cells are increased which indicates an ongoing infection for which you need antibiotics.
So, consult with your treating doctor for antibiotics for lower urinary tract infection.
