Brief Answer: Your semen analysis is well within accepted range Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have normal sperm count with 20% of the sperms being with active grade one motility. It is active grade one motile sperms that are important from the point of view of effective fertilization of female egg. Pregnancy results from the fertilization of female egg(mature follicle) by a active grade one motile sperm I would emphasize to confirm again whether your wife has normal menstrual cycle and whether mature ovarian follicles are produced or not. Please consult qualified infertility specialist for proper hormonal assessment and to confirm regarding ovulation .There is no reason why you should not impregnate your wife . Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you . Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil.
