Hi hatem,
Welcome to HCM.
Your sperm count is normal but motility is poor and non motile percentage is high. Usually 80 % of the sperms should be motile of which at least 50 % be rapid progressive.
You should consult an Urologist and get a Doppler Ultrasound done to exclude varicocele. If treated properly you stand a good chance of impregnating your wife.
Wish you all the Best.

Hi,I am a 31 y/o currently seeing an infertility doctor for my husbands low sperm count. We know we have to do ivf/icsi and we've already paid for it. I went to my clinic for day 2 and 3 testing and they cancelled our cycle b/c they said that I have elevated FSH levels. They said it happens sometimes and that I could just be stressed. They told me to come back next cycle and try again. Could this mean I could be going through early menopause or premature ovarian failure? Are there other tests they could do before getting a definitive answer?
