Is it possible to have good sperm motility but poor morphology? 12% morphology, 70% motility? Was the test accurate with these figures?

In brief: Morphology likely OK

Sperm morphology (the proportion of sperm that are normally shaped) is measured in different ways.
The best is called "strict" morphology, because it predicts fertilization efficiency. Using that method, 12% normal sperm is actually very good and well above the value associated with decreased fertility (4%). Check the normal range for your test. Your result is probably normal.
