In brief: Slow sperm
I'm not exactly certain whether you are referring to a sperm count with a low percentage of motile sperm or low speed.
Varicocele is the most common cause for low sperm motility, but other factors can be involved such as hormone abnormalities, smoking, alcohol, infection or other medications. Supplements such as vitamin d, carnitine in proxeed, or enzyme coq10 might be useful. Check with his md.

In brief: Low Sperm Motility
You suggest that 3 yrs infertility & tests are normal except sperm motility.
Agree with other answers but will add. Confirm all tests actually done. Sperm motility not as important as sperm function (ability to fertilize egg). Sperm disorders often misunderstood and poorly treated. 3 yrs infertile suggests you need treatment but you must discuss with fertility specialist.
