Thanks for your query.

Normal points:
Volume of the ejaculate is normal
Quantity of sperm is normal
Ph within range .

Abnormal points:
Motile sperms are less
Defective sperms are more
The shape and activity of sperms is not normal.

This report indicates there is a problem.Even in case of low sperm count motility and morphology (means the physical appearance) should be normal.This could be the reason for not conceiving.

A word of advise,for complete evaluation and to have some more idea it is always advisable to go for repeat examination after couple of months.

Observe abstinence for at least 3 days.Collection method and reaching lab in time is also important.

After the second report if that is also not normal you need to find out the reason for this .In mean time have healthy diet,avoid too much of stress.

I hope this answers your query,I will be available for follow up.
