Welcome to HCM.

Semen has to be collected within the lab premises with a period of sexual abstinence of 3-5 days. Then only you can get your optimum reliable parameters.
As far as your seminal examination, the sperm count 15 million is little low and you need treatment for the same. Motility will be good if it is more than 60%. That also has to be improved a little.
Your analysis report shows borderline defects only and can be corrected easily. Sometimes an repeat sample after 15 days with adequate abstinence may show a result with adequacy.
Consult an andrologist. He will help you in this regard.

Good luck to you.

Hi, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
Your test report shows marginal amount of semen, appearance,pH, liquefaction time all are within normal limit.But sperm count is lower than normal ( normal >20 million as per WHO1999) though motility is marginal (normal >50% as per WHO) the morphology is abnormal.
You have not mentioned fructose test result.
My suggestion is to go for sperm morphology by special staining method for detailed information.
