I am a male 27 years of age, and 175cm tall. 85kg in weight. I've noticed that my sperm count is low. Altough i knew i had to abstain 3 days before the test, i did masturbate but DIDN'T ejaculate cause i knew that would have effected the test. Although i didn't ejaculate, would arousing effect the test? I was also questioning about the morphology because it seems that it is showing as 60-65% abnormal.
Basically i would like to know if i can have children or not.
thanks a lot.

Total No. Spermatoazoa/ml = 22.0 million / ml
Total No. Spermatoazoa/Ejaculation = 44.0 million / Ejaculation
Total Motility PR + NP % = 15%
Rapid Linear Progression = 00 %

Could you please advise if i can overcome this issue as i'am worried about the age factor.
Thanks in advance.
Your report says that your total sperm count is good.But the motility of the sperms is low.The morphology of the sperms is abnormal In such cases,due to abnormal morphology,poor motility etc the quality of the sperms is poor.You should take the following precautions:
Avoid smoking.
