If everything else is good, and everything is good at your end, and you really feel he's the one, I say no.
You may want to set some limits, though - like if you were thinking, "we'll try for six months at home, and if not, then we'll do IUI at a clinic" you may instead decide "we'll try for three months with at-home IUIs and two insems per cycle, and if that doesn't work, we'll go to a clinic." or whatever makes sense.
You should have gotten some interpretation from the doctor who ordered the semen analysis. If not, call hir up and ask.
Your next step would be a consult with a urologist and/or a reproductive endocrinologist.
Finally, did your donor follow the instructions? Did he abstain from ejaculating for three days, but no more than five days before the semen analysis? A high abnormal morphology count can mean he abstained too long before the S/A so you may want to make sure he ejaculates three days before he donates for you each time.
Obviously, these conversations can be a little bit awkward, but soon you'll get used to having them. Good luck!
