Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Your semen analysis report indicates sperm count is lower than required ( Normal is > 15 millions /ml as per WHO 2010).

Abnormal forms are within normal limit ( as per WHO 2010, normal semen contains >04% normal sperm.).

Motility is very poor ( as per WHO 2010, motility should be >50%).

Pus cells are present alongwith RBCs ( as per WHO 2010, normal semen contains no pus cells or RBCs).

So, overall, the report is indicative of infection in the urogenital tract which has lead to low count and lower motility.

You should consult with your treating doctor for prescribing a broad spectrum antibiotic like ciprofloxacin or cefpodoxime). Alongwith that, a coenzyme q and vitamin E will be very helpful.

Repeat the test after completion of antibiotics.

Hope this will be helpful.
