Hi, I think you can go for a semen culture and sensitivity test to see if there is any infection. He can take some antioxidant and vitamin supplements for 3 months to improve motility. He can also take antibiotic like doxycycline 100mg twice a day for 10 days empirically. Talk to your doctor regarding this. You can try ovulation induction with timed intercourse for 3 to 6 cycles. If it doesn't work, then you can go for IUI. In this sperm motility is improved to a great extent. Hope it helps.
