See specialist...: Those numbers look high on the fsh and low on the amh, suggesting a "diminished ovarian reserve". One can see a reproductive endocrinologist to find out if one can still produce quality eggs.

Ovarian reserve: Amh level above 0.5 ng/ml suggests good reserve. Levels less than 0.15 ng/ml suggest a poor response to ivf. A normal fsh is not useful in predicting fertility, but a highly abnormal result (say fsh >20 miu/ml) suggests pregnancy is unlikely with treatment involving the woman's own oocytes. No reason hmg/iui shouldn't be an option, how likely to be successful depends on your specifics.

Shots + IUI vs. IVF: No test of ovarian reserve is perfect - there is no fsh level so high or amh level so low that noone gets pregnant. Ultrasound scan for ovarian volumes and antral follicle count and a Clomid (clomiphene) challenge test day 10 fsh give us more info. If you respond to injectables you have a chance of getting pregnant - i would see a rei for the above tests, then talk about IUI vs. Ivf. Ok to try IUI for 3 months.
