Brief Answer: yes Detailed Answer: Hi Spermatids are a stage in spermayocyte formation. Unfortunately the report shows low motility and morphology means not good for normal conception. Since the culture report shows infection he must take antibiotics no matter what your doctor feels. Taking antibiotics and treating infection itself might improve his semen analysis. With this count you need to go for IUI treatment which can be tried for 3 cycles before deciding upon IVF. Let me know if you have any more questions. Regards
