Dear Bill

A semen analysis or a semen profile in any particular person is not static and may change from month to month depending on various factors. The semen analysis that you have posted includes the 3 most important factors namely the count, which is normal, the motility, which is normal, but the morphology, which out of all 3 is the most important is on the low side. This would indicate a subfertile semen analysis with a good prognosis. Which means that you have a reasonable chance, providing nothing else is wrong to achieve a pregnancy. However if there is a presence of long standing infertility, in other words unable to achieve a pregnancy within a year then one will do well using assisted reproductive techniques such as intrauterine insemination or IVF (in-vitro fertilization).
