The total motile sperms are <50% which is abnormal. However the total concentration of sperms is high(110 million which far above average 60 millions). So on the whole there are many motile sperms. So there are possibilities of conception. But if does not happen, you can go for artificial methods.

Hi.. In a normal individual more than 50% of the sperms are progressively motile.. Sperm motility of less than 20% can lead to infertility.. Hence accordingly there are chances of conceiving..
