Cardiologist 's  Response
The dose of thyroid is adjusted on the result of blood test (TSH)
Your doctor's approach is the best under the circumstances - a trial of clomid is the best option before you opt for AI
All these need Time and individual luck has a part! As you are already 36, you can try one year at the least.
good luck
