Please let me know if my semen profile has anything wrong due to which my wife is not able to conceive.

A:Your semen report seems to be normal. It is important to have intercourse in mid cycle - i.e. count 14 days backwards from the expected date of next period of your wife. That is the day of ovulation. Have sex 2 days before and after this date, including that day. You can have sex on alternate days also. She can see a gynecologist for follicular monitoring so that exact day of ovulation can be found out on ultrasound. Your wife too should be investigated.
