Hello and welcome to HCM
Welcome to HCM

For conception a rapid forward progressive linear motion is needed in atleast 50 % sperms.
If this rapid motion is present in less than 50 % sperms, there is difficulty in conceiving or penetration of ovum by the sperms.

Please post the entire semen analysis report for better interpretation.

In case there is isolated low rapid linear motion, semen analysis can be repeated.

Verona is a herbal preparation for preventing pre-mature ejaculation.
Ascard is enteric coated aspirin.

Please post the entire semen analysis report.

Thanks and take care

Hello, welcome to HCM, I am Dr Das.

4% motility is not normal. For normal pregnancy, motility of more than 50 % is required.

So, you have to take the medicines prescribed.

Continue the medicines and keep following up with the doctor.
