I can't tell you if it will work with IUI or not, but I read that sucess rates with IUI are low. A lot of doctors advise 3 IUI's before going to IVF. My DH has much worse SA than yours so your DH's SA looks very very good to me. There is a lot of controversy about how much morphology plays a role in conception. What I was able to find on the net is that everithing above 4% Kruger (not WHO) is OK. I read a lot of posts where they say that morphology can't be improved. My DH's morph varied from 2-8 % Kruger what is considered significant. I think vitamins and antioxidants helped my DH. Good luck
