Hello and welcome to HCM

Your semen analysis report appears to me as:

Volume: 3cc- Normal volume

Reaction: Alkaline- Normal

Liquefaction time: 30 min- Normal time

Sperm count: 5 million/cc- Normal count

Motility: 40% are actively motile- Normal motility is 50% sperms showing active motility

Morphology: Not mentioned- Normally, 50 % sperms ahould have normal morphology

Pus cells: 1-2/ HPF

RBC: 0-1/HPF

Pus cells and RBC values are within normal range

Conclusion: The number of motile sperms are less in your semen.

You have not mentioned about the morphology.

You can face problems of infertility due to sub-normal motility of sperms.

Thanks and take care
