According to latest WHO criteria, your semen analysis is normal. (WHO 2010). For conception to occur, apart from your semen & her eggs(ovulation), normal open tubes are required. Also after 6 months of trying, chance of pregnancy is around 70% (85-90% after 12 months). So you have not tried enough & also tubes are not yet checked.
If you are very anxious for pregnancy, you can consult infertility specialist, who will investigate & guide you; otherwise you can wait for another 6 months.
Wish you good health.

Hello Ravi, welcome to HCM.
Firstly, when a couple, after regular intercourse, for minimum one year, does not have any result, then they should be investigated for infertility. Not before that time period. So, in your case it is very impractical to stamp you as infertile.

Now, coming to your report, the count is normal for the volume. As per WHO 1999, normal semen volume is 2 ml. But accepted sperm count is >20 million / ml. So, as per this criteria, your sperm count must be 30 million. So, you have normal sperm concentration.

Secondly, As per WHO1999, actively motile sperm should be >25%. And active + sluggishly motile sperm should be >50%. As per this criteria your sperm motility is absolutely normal.
But, morphology is lower than normal.
You must consult any infertility specialist for taking antioxidants and drugs containing Co enzyme.

So, overall You are not infertile. Because one normal, motile sperm is adequate for fertilization.
