Different IVF protocol, or switch to donor eggs?

My wife and I have just experienced our 3rd failed IVF cycle, and are currently weighing up whether to try again on a different protocol ("flare"), or to look at the option of donor eggs. Up to now, we consistently get at least 1 "intermediate" grade embryo to transfer (typically grade 3, on a 1-4 scale, with 4 being top), from a relatively low number of eggs collected, on a long IVF protocol. We are both 38. Appreciate you can't give detailed personal advice via this forum, but any general thoughts very welcome. Many thanks.
