Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

This semen analysis report shows asthenospermia which mean slow sperm motility,sperm motility is very important in order to fertilize the egg once the sperms are in vagina.

in 90% of the cases the cause of low sperm motility is varicocele which is abnormal dilation of testicular veins which causes stasis of blood in the testis raising the temperature of testis which leads to damage of sperms. I would advise you to get his scrotal doppler ultrasound to rule out varicocele and in the meanwhile start him on n-acetylcarnitine and evion for 3 months and repeat semen analysis after 3 months.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
