raised FSH levels

Can raised FSH levels be the only factor in someone not conceiving, and if so, what could one take to bring the levels down enough to make conception possible?

Dear Trying

A raised FSH level alone may not be the only factor if someone is not conceiving. There are many other factors that also contribute to one not conceiving namely male factor problems with the sperm and fallopian tube damage or occlusion. However having a raised FSH usually implies a poor ovarian reserve but does not necessary mean that conception will not take place. If the FSH levels are not very high then in vitro fertilization is a possibility but one would require to use higher doses of medication to obtain follicular growth.
