What is the best option for us?

Hi, I hope you can help with this query. I'm not sure, but I feel that it may be an unusual issue and we are struggling to know who to turn to for advice.
Due to physical issues that my husband suffers with, we are almost completely unable to have full intercourse. We are desperate to start a family but really struggling to get any help from our GP other than "quick fixes" which don't really provide adequate solutions. We feel like we will never get anywhere at this rate.
Currently going through regular fertility testing, but if we come through this and find that all is OK, please could you advise the best course of action for us? Would IUI be a good option in our situation or would we be better to go straight for IVF? We are so keen to start a family and desperate for help but feel that we have hit a brick wall and unable to move forward. Really hope you can help. Thanks in advance!
