Thanks for your query.

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Your sperm count is very low. Even the motility (speed of sperm movement) & morphology (appearance) is not good. It is very difficult to try for pregnancy with this report.

I am afraid it cant be treated in your case as it is age related and not generally reversible.

You have to go for Assisted reproductive technology like ICSI ( Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection). Please see an IVF & Infertility specialist who can advice you in detail regarding procedure.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
