low sperm count is it possible to get pregnant?

I think i am clutching at straws here, and i dont know if any of you can help. My bf had an infertility test done over a year ago. the results were as follows:
Volume=6ml (2-5)
PH 7.4 (7.2-7.8)
Sperm count = 15 million/ml (normal is 20-300 million)
Sperm motility:
37% rapid progression
15% slow progression
5% non prgression
43% immobile
(normal is either more than 25% showing rapid progression or more than 50% showing rapid and slow progession)
Agglutination = none
Morphology = 4% (normal is more than 15%)

So he was diagnosed with low sperm count and the percentage of normal morphology is well below normal. So my question is what are the chances given the above of me being pregnant? I ask because my period is late.. we have been having unprotected sex, foolish i know, considering the plan was not to get pregnant, but given his history i didnt think it was even possible, now i am not so sure.
What do you guys think? do you think it could be? Or would results like this mean it is really unlikely that conception could have occured?

I think that your husband has got some sperm so there is always a chance.

If you have been having unprotected sex then you may well be pregnant and congratulations might be in order!

I agree niteluvsta. Your partners sperm count should not be used as a form of contraception. It only takes one sperm to fertilise an egg.

As the others have said, it only takes one sperm.

I understand that this is a worrying time for you as you are actively trying not to get pregnant, but please remember this is a fertility site where every one of our members would do anything to be in your position right now. With that in mind, the moderating team have moved three or four of your duplicate threads which were posted in the fertility section and so not really in the appropriate place

Have we supported you? Can you support us?
