Thanks for your query.

I have read your query & I understand your concerns.

From what you describe it appears to be a report of oligoastenospermia ( low sperm count with decreased motility).

Minimum sperm count needed is 20 million per ml. Your counts are far less.

I advice you see an infertility specialist to get prescription for antioxidant medication to improve your sperm count.

With the present count only modality of conception is ICSI ( Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection). Please ask details from your infertility specialist about the ICSI procedure and other forms of ART.

All the best.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
