IVF using egg donor

Good evening

As a same sex female couple is IVF using both sperm and egg donors available to us? We had originally hoped that my wife could donate her eggs to me to then carry the baby, however, having researched the subject we have discovered that my wife is over the age threshold for egg donation so therefore this isn’t an option. Having discussed it further we have decided it would be the best option to use both donor eggs and sperm. Only having viewed your pages when I try to access this it will not give me the option for egg donor treatment as part of a same sex female couple. I am 37 years old and my wife is 49 years old.

Many thanks in advance
