37 yo FSH 15 - any point in trying?

A few months ago I had an FSH reading of 12.8; continued to do monitoring with blood work/ultrasound in first few days of cycle, followed by blood work/monitoring around ovulation. This month started clomid for the first time (100 mg days 5-9) intending to do an IUI. On Friday (day 10) I was told I had an FSH reading of 15 this month (not clear to me whether was a reading from Friday or from the earlier baseline). RE still intends to follow through with the IUI on Monday (ovidrel today), but suggested that some women receiving this news stop treatment entirely. DH (I'm not very good with these chat board terms but am trying) is less into having children than I am and may not be on board with the IVF concept, and definitely won't be on board with donor eggs. Does anyone know any places I can go to see what likely success rates are for IUI or IVF for a 37 year old with an FSH of 15? I'm trying to figure out whether I am really just infertile. Thanks.
