Mini IVf Costs, Clomid side effects, FSH vs AMH

So I actually have several questions. I am 37, and have tried and failed at 4 IUI's. I was on clomid 100mg and was only having about 2-3 follicles each cycle. My FSH is 8.6, but my Gynecologist doesn't know what an AMH test is. Could my failed IUI's possibly be the clomid thinning out my uterus? I have been on it for about 8 months. Also, my friend recently had a successful mini IVF, first...

Gender selection after Tubal Ligation

We have 4 boys and I thought I was finished having kids after trying the 4th time to have a girl but getting another boy, so I got a tubal ligation. It's been a year now since my Tubal and I still really want a girl. I'm not sure how I can go about achieving this now, do I need to have a reversal or can I do it another way? Or is it too late? I just turned 36 and feel like time is running out....
