If your doctor says you are too old for clomid, does that mean he has checked your ovaries for whether there are any eggs left? Basically, you ARE at the age where the eggs left in your ovaries may be either almost gone or not really functional, which would mean that clomid is not likely to work. And if this is the case, you are also not likely to conceive naturally. You "may" be able to conceive through IVF if there are any good eggs left, but it could be expensive and not have any results if the good eggs are few and far between. It may actually be at a point where you no longer have the opportunity to conceive a biological child and would need to rely on a donor egg.
Is your doctor a fertility specialist? This is something you may need to discuss with a specialist.

My husband and I tried to get pregnant for 2.5 years. I was diagnosed with PCOS and went on fertility drugs for 3 months with no result but feeling sick every day. That's when I was introduced to essential oils.
I started the fertility regimen of clary sage, Endoflex, Progessence Plus, Ultra young spray, and Ningxia Red juice. I applied them topically to my ankles and throat everyday.
After 3 months on the regimen I found out I was pregnant! I continue to use the Progessence Plus a few times a week to support a healthy pregnancy. These oils have been an amazing blessing in my life!

Lisa, i'm in a similar situation is it possible to bring back a period at age 44? And even if they discover I have no eggs left or they are not healthy, a egg donor mixed with my husband's sperm inserted into me could work correct? I lost my period due to chemo. Not sure if I have any eggs and my husband has fertility issues too. We would like a child together. Please help. Any answers appreciated. Or referrals of clinics that will do payments close to Wisconsin.

I also have my own testimony as a cancer survivor. I finished chemotherapy in June 2006. My periods had ceased after a few months of chemotherapy. After chemotherapy, I started using Young Living's Essential Oil, Clary Sage and my period returned. I was 48 years old and already had three grandchildren though.

Hello there! I had my son naturally at 42 and my daughter when I was almost 44. My doctor had initially told me it was likely that i would not get pregnant at all. i am lucky I didn't listen to him! I wish you the luck that I have had!

She said to just try naturally. I never had problem before but naturally it's getting harder as I'm getting older. She's a little old fashioned maybe and I don't feel brave enough to ask again I suppose. I'm wondering if it's common for dr to prescribe at my age
