Brief Answer:
Semen analysis

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Greetings
Semen analysis will vary from time to time and lab to lab. Your total count and morphology is very much within normal limits.
Progressive motility is slightly decreased ,but it should not be taken as a serious issue with one analysis.
You can consult an XXXXXXX or urologist and get yourself examined to rule out any infection or varicocele. correcting them will improve motility.
So with this count you can father a child, if your wife is normal.
Hope my answer helps you. Regards
