Your total count is low rest is normal.
For conception only 1 sperm is required.
Men with repeated counts below 20 million/ml have reduced fertility but most of then become fathers with or without assistance.
Semen count fluctuates and you must have a repeat sample about 6 wks later from the first one to know if you really have low count.
Please follow the following
1 avoid smoking
2. avoid alcohol
3. check blood sugar and keep it normal
4 exercise regularly
5 wear loose undergarment
6 avoid excessive exposure to heat
7 avoid stress and take regular sleep
8 avoid body building steroids and recreational drugs
9 medications like antioxidants and clomiphene citrate helps

There are a lot of assisted reproductive techniques which can help you so dont worry
Best wishes
