After going through these reports I want to tell you that Motility should be 100 % while in your case it is 40 % ( active ) .
Morphology is 70% , abnormal cells 30 % , for normal fertility It should be > 13 % of exhibiting normal morphology.
Now read this carefully , as this may help you.
Extensive studies suggests that normal FERTILITY is associated with sperm counts > 48 million/ ml with a motility of >63% ( in your case it is 40 % , much less )with 13% exhibiting normal morphology.
But subfertility is associated with sperm counts As far as about conception you should consult an INFERTILITY specialist and get his opinion .
Good luck.
