Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Bilateral Varicocele and was operated on left side 10 months back.It is not proved that varicocele is cause for oligospermia or Asthenospermia (less motility of sperms).

There are 30% chances of improving the sperm count after varicocelectomy.

Your recent count is satisfactory and sufficient to conceive.and there are no medication that will help in increasing sperm motility. Please repeat your semen analysis.after one month.and consult qualified infertility specialist.
