3ml x 28.3 mil/ml = 84.9 million total sperm count (normal is 40 million or higher so you are within normal sperm production limits)

84.9 mil x 50% motility = 42.45 million total motile (normal is 15 million total motile or higher so you are producing enough live,motile sperm to be classified fertile)

Overall your numbers look good and you should be fertile. A semen analysis is not 100% on predicting fertility but just based on your numbers we know you have normal testicular output or sperm production with normal levels of live, motile sperm to achieve a natural conception.
