Antibodies ICSI or IUI

:innocent:Hi Scientist - took me 3 years to register here, so here goes!!!

Last year had very unnerving experience with severe ohss. Reluctant to go through ICSI again -Dh has antibody problem.
20 eggs - 5 fertilized, 1 suitable-didn't take
Have been told since retrieved sperm better to use in our situation as not mixed with antibodies?

Previous results
Count/ml 20 10x6
Anatomy 98% abnormal
Motility 2%

Had biopsy cons. said certainly were moving but not suitable to freeze??
However taking vitamins and steroids for 3 mths. Since then SA results greatly improved but cons. recommends ICSI again and just put up with OHSS - I am not so keen!!

Recent SA
Count/ml 103 10x6
Anatomy 90% abnormal
Motility 30% motile
MAR 80% IgG bound

Washed sample
Count/ml 5 10x6
Anatomy 0% abnormal
Motility 60% motile

I feel this would be suitable for IUI but cons. says ICSI only way. I feel he does not want to backtrack after previous ICSI and he is very difficult to talk to - evades all questions. I have read you can get good success rates with 5 million +. Would like your opinion as I feel trapped into injecting myself and spending another gruelling spell in hospital! I would have no problem with ICSI if I didn't get so sick- please comment!!!
Thanks ? ?(
