Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that I use the entire sperm sample when doing an IUI.  The sample needs to be thawed and for best results used in its entirety for best results.
It only takes one sperm to fertilize an egg, but the entire sample is important in helping that one get to its destination.
Good luck!
