Thanks for posting your query.
Your sperm count is ok.
According to WHO recommendation for normal sperm count,
Total sperm count should be more than 20 million per/ ml,
active motility > 60%,
normal forms should be 70% or greater than it.
So no need to worry & have sexual activity during fertile period of cycle that is 3 days before & 2 days after ovulation.
I hope your query has been answered. I will be available for your further queries.
