infertility-understanding a semen analysis report

We have been married for 2+ years now. On finding out that we were not conceiving, we both did a series of tests. I was 'okay' and my husband was told to do semen analysis tests. Though sperm counts differed (increased over the year),some parameters remained unchanged-0.5 ml ejaculate volume,zero fructose,ph mostly acidic and high percentage of abnormal morphology sperm.
What do these recurring test results mean? How significant are they in evaluating our present medical condition and our hopes for having a baby?
I want to understand what these imply and what can be done about it. Our doctors have been pushing us to have an artificial procedure done for sometime now, but at the same time,we would like to know why and if there's something that can be done before the icsi/ivf.

Could an outbreak of mumps during childhood have caused this condition. If so, what is the best way to go about this?
