Brief Answer:
Take antibiotics for 4 weeks

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query .

Based on the report of your semen analysis that you have posted all important parameters of your semen like sperm count ,sperm motility .and morphology of the sperms are normal except presence of 2-3 pus cells which suggest infection of either seminal Vesicle or Prostate ..

Get semen culture done to trace out organisms causing this infection and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to .

In the mean while Start taking antibiotic like Doxicycline twice daily and later on switch on to appropriate antibiotic as per culture report .You will need t take antibiotics for 4-6 weeks .

Repeat your semen analysis after finishing the course of antibiotics

Please get your wife checked by qualified Gynecologist to be sure that her menstrual cycle is regular and there are no other issues.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
