High fsh?

Hi, i would like some advice please, i am beyond desperate and no doctors seem to want to help, i have 3 children and concieved with absolutely no problems, hence why drs wont help. I have been trying to get pregnant for 3 years, i finally got pregnant in 2015 but at 22weeks he died. No reason, he was perfect but he just didnt make it. At the end of last year we started trying again but with no luck. We went to a fertility clinic and after a few tests they said my fsh was on the high side 11.6 but said that wouldnt really affect my chances of getting pregnant. They gave me clomid to help things along and on day 10 i went in for a follicle check and there was nothing there. They told me i wasnt a good candidate for treatment as clomid hadnt worked and basically said go home and try naturally. Unfortunately i didnt ovulate again for 6 months. I was devastated, clomid is supposed to make you ovulate but with me it totally stopped it. I started reflexology and taking a few supplements, then eventually in september i had a period, on day 2 i rushed bac to the clinic and had more bloods done, the results were even worse. fsh 12.2, lh 1.5 and oestradiol <37pmol. The dr basically told me i was perimenopausal, to go home and enjoy the children i have because i wont be having any more. Im just devastated. Im sure those results were false because i hadnt ovulated for so long. Since then i have been taking ubiquinol 600mg, royal jelly, vitamin d, im also taking metformin but thats for weight loss as i am half a stone over weight. Also since that dr told me the bad news i have had 4 cycles, i have ovulated on day 14 or 15 each cycle and have a 12-13 luteal phase but still no pregnancy. Can anyone offer any advice. I cannot accept that the last baby ill ever have died. It just doesnt seem fair.

I am very sorry for your loss. I would go to a high FSH friendly RE. It sounds to me like yours is not. Clomid often does not do well for poor responders. What is your age? That has the biggest impact on your chances. Your FSH numbers alone are not that bad. I had success at 32 with an FSH of 18 and at 37/37 (a few weeks from my birthday) with an FSH of 32. Often a zero AFC. The trick is finding someone who treats poor responders and this is of the utmost importance. So many docs turn away people with just mildly elevated FSH it is crazy.
