Dear Dr Dattaprasad,

Please advise whether this report is ok to conceive?

For the past one and a half months I am not been able to get proper erectiion for the penetration. Though I get early monring erection but it does not last the way it used to be. I am a non smoker and non drinker. Please let me know if any test is required to be undergone and what medicine to be taken to get rid of the issue.

Brief Answer:
Report fine.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back.
This report is ok for conception. But for conception apart from normal semen, regular ovulation & patent tubes are required. So get the other two things (wife) checked.
Regarding erection problem, its not related to normalacy of semen report. As you are getting early morning erections, any serious pathology is unlikely. For safer side you can get your hormonal tests done(FSH,TESTOSTERONE, TSH, PROLACTIN & ESTRADIOL LEVELS). Mostly your problem should be solved by counselling by andrologist/infertility specialist & if required few simple medicines to prolong erection. Those medicines are precription only medicines & require prior check up by doctor to rule out any contraindication & hence can't be prescribed online.
A general advice to prolong erection is to increase duration of foreplay, pressing urethra at the base of penis for few seconds when you are about to have ejaculation can also prolong erection.
If erection problem doesn't solve by all possible means, still you can have child by simple methods like intravaginal/intrauterine insemination.
Let me know if you have other concerns.
