Thyroid and Fertility

I am a secondary infertility sufferer and deal with hypothyroidism. My doctor is convinced that my thyroid levels are within the "norm" due to the medication I take but yet I don't agree with him. It's been over 5 years of TTC, our first trial of TTC was 2 1/2 years and we then had three children over the course of the next few years. About my last child's first birthday I had depression issues and was found to have a nodule on my thyroid (biopsy came back fine) and hypothyroidism. I get frustrated though now because my doctor doesn't seem to think the thyroid has any chance of being the problem. He has referred me to the fertility clinic which we can't afford to pay out of pocket (50% is covered for the initial meeting and not sure after that... probably the same). Has anyone else dealt with this? I am just so frustrated...
