IUI and husband's sperm?

I'm going to have an IUI procedure done next week, the problem my husband has is antibodies in his sperm. Do you think an IUI will be successful? Many thanks

It is difficult to answer your question without more information on your husband’s semen analysis result.  It may be successful as IUI bypasses the transport of the sperm through the female reproductive tract and antibodies on the sperm can interfere with this process
