Hello, Welcome to HCM,
The report shows, normal sperm count ( normal is >20 million/ml as per WHO 1999), decreased motility ( normal is >50% as per WHO1999). Morphology of the sperm is reduced.
But, there is presence of increased pus cells. Epithelial cells are within normal limit.
Now, the decreased motility and morphology is due to presence of the pus cells in the semen.
So, overall, you are suffering from lower urinary tract infection.
Consult with your treating doctor for appropriate antibiotic, and repeat the test after completion of the antibiotic.
