Good day,
Infertility is very common and in your case, both partners have issues. As you have tried IUI many times and since the sperm count and motility is an issue in your husband, it may be better you seek help of an infertility specialist and probably opt for IVF with ICSI. I hope your husband is taking a good dose of Thyroxine now. Both of you should exercise well and that helps in both PCOS and to improve sperm count and motility.
