Is the result of semen analysis good or bad? the semen

Patient

Q: Is the result of semen analysis good or bad?
the semen analysis result:
-volume :3 ml
-liquefaction: 40 minutes
-concentration: 58 millions.
-Motility: 25 rapid progressive, 30 slow progressive, 25 non- progressive and 20 immotile.
-Morphology: 70% normal.

I saw two doctors, the first doctor say that your result is perfect, but the other doctor say its bad because the rapid progressive motility only 25%.

so i wondering my result good or bad!

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query,

The result indicates moderate sperm count and decreased motility making the diagnosis of asthenospermia. You may have to be placed on tab L-CARNITINE 1000mg twice a day for next 3 months to allow improvement in counts and motility.

Regards
