Thanks for your query.

I am sorry to hear that you had surgery for undescended testis and smaller size of testis.

That may be the reason your sperm count is very less at 3 million/ml.

Your report is still incomplete as you have not commented about liquefaction time of semen, normal morphology and rapid motility of sperms. These parameters are also of significance.

Since your total sperm count is 3 million / ml I am afraid it is difficult to become a father by naturally. Chances are remote. It is not possible to reverse this process also. You may have to go for ICSI modality of assisted conception to have a child.

ICSI (Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection) is a method where your sperms are injected in to your wife's eggs to get an embryo which is transferred into your wife.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any follow up query you have.
