Brief Answer:
This can happen with proper supplements.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Sperm morphology is about the shape and structure of spermatazoa.
The abnormal morphology of the sperms can happen due to aged sperms. This happens due to infrequent ejaculations. Doing more frequent ejaculations can improve the sperm morphology considerably. The reports that you have mentioned are more likely to be correct rather than a printing error.
Some sperms may be oddly shaped but still perfectly capable of penetrating an egg. So, many couples with sperm morphology problems still go on to conceive naturally without any real problems.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
