Brief Answer: Reasonable but not perfect reports. Detailed Answer: hi, you have reasonable sperm count. but the motility ratio is on the lower side. I do not think it is abnormal as well, as overall motile sperms are much higher. I would recommend you to take multivitamins for 2 months and repeat the test again. YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH FERTILITY WITH THE ABOVE REPORT. All the best.

Brief Answer: YES Detailed Answer: YES, It is good that you asked. Smoking is regarded as THE most important cause of male infertility next to diabetes. I strongly recommend you to keep away from smoking (at least till you finish your family```) All the best.
