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%).
The Normal sperm count is also within normal limit (as per WHO 2010, normal sperm should be > 04%).
The pus cells, RBCs are within normal limit.
So, overall, your report indicates no abnormality. You do not need anything to do. You are absolutely normal.
