Hi welcome to HCM....

With the healthy and balanced diet your latest report is absolutely normal...

According to WHO guideline normal sperm count should be greater then 15 million per ml ....
Sperm motility should be at least 40% with 32% should have progressive motility ..You have not mentioned progressive motility sperm percentage....

So these two factors count and motility seems normal...

But for reproduction dear sperm morphology and vitality also should be known...If these two within normal limit then no need for worry regarding semen factor..

So if you attach full semen report including vitality and morphology then I can comment more ...

Take care .
