Low Motility now on antibiotics

I am asking this question for my husband and myself.

My husband's latest SA results showed that his motility is questionable. My OB consulted with a Urologist and he put my husband on six weeks of antibiotics because he is thinking that he may have a low-grade prostate infection. My question, or questions are:
What type of infection could this be?
Could something as simple as antibiotics really help with our infertility? (i have been checked out and I am fine and healthy)
We already have a 3-year old daughter and she was conceived quickly with no help and no problems.
Hubby is to do another SA after he finishes the antibiotics, but I just don't know if the antibiotics is going to be what helps us.
If any one could shed some light or give me any type of info, that would be helpful.

It is possible to see an infection in areas of the male reproductive system and the infection can cause harm to the sperm cells. A couple infections men can get are prostatitis and epididymitis that will negatively impact their semen analysis parameters.

To cure infertility or azoospermia caused by prostatitis, epididymitis or other genital diseases, I suggest you to take Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill.
Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can kill bacteria, virus, mycoplasma, chlamydia and pathogen. Meanwhile, it can promote Qi to release pain, clear away heat and dampness, promote blood circulation and dissolve stasis. After three to four months treatment, patients would have their tests results normal and the disease is cured.
1. As a traditional Chinese medicine, it is very effective in killing bacteria and other pathogen.
2. Traditional Chinese herbs with other herbs which can treat in the lesion, the disease can be cured by provide more oxygen and nutrition in the semen. So that azoospermia can get cured.
