Welcome to HCM.
Your Semen Analysis Report interpretation as follows:
1) Semen volume 1.5 ml>>Normal (Normal value-1 to 6 ml)
2) Color-Greyish white>> normal
3) Total sperm count 28 million/ml >> Normal (N value 20-150 million/ml)
4)Sperm per Ejaculate 41 million>> Normal (as ejaculate volume 1.5 ml)
5)Sperm viability 15 million/ml>> ABNORMAL (As more than 75% viable sperm is normal)
6)Sperm morphology 40% normal shape >> BORDERLINE to ABNORMAL ( Ideally 70 % morphologically normal sperm is good for fertility, But WHO describes at least 30% sperm should be in normal shape and form)
7) Sperm motility 54%,linear progression 4%,Non-linear 56%, non progressive 40%>> overall BORDERLINE to NORMAL (At least 50-60% forward motility is ideal)

You should repeat the test after 1 month and check your semen report for any progression. In the mean time, you take vit- E supplements with other nutrients.

All the best
