Our expert says:
The count of 3 is not necessarily a major problem and can be enhanced with the use of medication. However if the count of 3 pertains to the morphology percentage then this would certainly indicate that IVF should be your first choice of treatment. Should the morphology be normal or greater than 8% then intrauterine insemination (IUI) can be done on repeated occasions at the time of ovulation and it may be necessary sometimes to attempt at least 3 to 4 IUI’s before moving on to IVF. Although natural intercourse has some place in this situation it would be extremely surprising if a pregnancy ensued under these circumstances. Also the increase risk of miscarriages may be coupled to sperm abnormalities and therefore it would be better to do some form of assisted reproduction under the supervision of a fertility specialist.
