Dear Titi
Without a full comprehensive sperm results it would be difficult for me to give you any specific advice. In cases of low sperm count or motility problems, this can be rectified with medication. However should the morphology percentages be very low, it would e futile to attempt the medical route of correction. Instead one would opt for some form of ART treatment such as INTRA UTRINE INSEMINATION(IUI) OR INVETRO FERTILIZATION(IVF) depending on the fertility specialist assessment.

The report also states:
Severe teratozoospremia
Subfertile with a poor prognosis

Would ivf, iui or icsi work?
