Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Look, your semen analysis report indicates normal sperm count (normal is > 15 ml as per WHO 2010).
The motility is within normal limit (as per WHO 2010, grade a should be >25% or all total >50%).

Look, i think you do not need any medication. Because, as per WHO 2010, if you have motile sperm of > 7 -8 millions / ml, you are able to impregnate your wife. As per this, your motile sperm count is much more than required.

So, you do not required any medication. Just try for pregnancy naturally.
