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.

I am a 38-year-old male, 6 ft in height and 87 kgs in weight. I had been diagnosed with moderate scalp Psoriasis in late 2007, after which I went in for homeopathic treatment for nearly a year. There was a some relief and I discontinued treatment in 2009. In 2010 I developed reddish Psoriatic rashes on my chest for which I have been under no specific medication. Now in 2011, a semen sample analysis was done for me in connection with efforts for my wife's conceiving a second child. The results showed male infertility with my condition being termed Oligo Asthena Teraspermia (OAT) which is essentially a negative on all three factors of male fertility. I happened to learn that immunological disorders like Psoriasis contribute to Male infertility in at least 10% of the cases. Is this true? And should I see a connection between my two conditions?
