Repeat: There is a lot of variability between labs in terms of semen analysis. A lab that specializes in fertility testing will do a more thorough and accurate assessment of the sperm. The most important thing is that you and your partner see a fertility specialist - a reproductive endocrinologist who can assess all factors and recommend treatment.

Yes there is more: Often it can be frustrating when trying to conceive a child and no pathologic cause is identified on a semen analysis. Further testing basically investigates if how you are having sex would lead to pregnancy. Find a urologist that can counsel you properly about practices to increase your chances of becoming pregnant given your circumstance. Also, make sure your partner is evaluated by an ob/gyn.

History and physical: The male infertility evaluation involves a careful history, physical exam and then a semen analysis. See: http://theturekclinic.Com/services/male-fertility-infertility-doctor-treatments-issues-zero-sperm-count-male-doctors/.
