Regarding Semen Analysis

Patient

Q: I had an operative laparoscopy for endometriosis on March 9,2015.I'm on GnrH injections for about 3 months and now we are trying to conceive.When my husband had a semen analysis last week,they said there is no sperm in the sample.(The abstinence was 4 days then).So they asked to give another sample after 1 week.My husband collected the sample and observed that the sample looks like it has no sperm in it(Abstinence=1week).So he masturbated again after 5mins and collected the second sample and he mixed it with the first sample and gave it for analysis.The report was normal now,but they said the sperm is moving in circles.Is it okay to mix both the samples?Does the result had any effect due to this?my husband had mumps orchitis in the month of march.pls help me.
