Your report is not ideally normal. Change your lifestyle and food. Here I record some guidelines for your convenience: 1. Go for morning walk and jogging regularly. 2. Sleep eight to ten hours daily. 3. Avoid overworking. 4. Never smoke and keep yourself away from alcohol. 5. Never eat sour foodstuffs. 6. Drink abundance of water daily. 7. Keep away yourself from anxiety, stress and depression.
Sexologist Dr. Gomatthi Chinnaswamy's  Response
This 9.5 million is little low compared to the 20 million according to WHO standard.This can be improved with medicine which you can get with the qualified androlpgist's prescription.Added to it you can use the following life style changes-
1)have periodic sex once in alternate days to release the secreted semen to improve motility.
2)consult a local sexologist (allopath)to help you to perfom a qualty intercourse for the proper stimulation of your endocrines.
3)Follow healthy practices to improve overall halth.

Having a moderately active lifestlye. have foods rich in zinc it helps in increasing sperm count but donno abouit the motility. Generally having seafood is good. Sperm count is considered normal above 20 million and more than 50% motility.
