Brief Answer:
Good chance for conceiving

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query

Looking at your semen analysis, the total sperm count is a little less however on the brighter side most of them are morphologically normal and also either active or sluggish. With this semen report my conclusion is that you can conceive.
Here are some general instructions

1. Wear only boxer type of underwear
2. Avoid keeping hot objects like laptops on your lap
3. Take cold water showers
4. Avoid smoking
5. Exercise daily ( cardivascular exercises like running, swimming, cycling) for half hour daily
6. Speak with your wife's gynaecologist to know her ovulatory cycles

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me
