What causes poor sperm motility and abnormal morphology?

Me and my husband are trying to conceive but are having trouble.He had a semen analysis and it showed he ad a normal cunt however the mobility was poor and had abnormal morphology or shape.I was wondering if certain antibodics could cause this since my husband took antibodics recently for a lung infection.He has to have another test done to confirm his results.One of the antibodics he was taking was ciprofloxacin could this cause abnormalities in sperm

IT could be abmornal veins near his testicles called varicocele.
If he has it, then he can have surgery to fix it and the sperm.
Have a doctor examine him for this.
