    From my understanding you are probably too old for egg donation. I am Not 100% though. Have you done a google search or talked to your GP?

    There's plenty of places people put ads looking for a donor, 36 your eggs are likely to be pretty good still. U could contact a local fertility clinic.....

    Hi, no direct experiences, sorry. But here is a video, a story that is shared by a real egg donor. Hope this helps.

    I think if you go to a clinic as an anonymous egg donor they like 35 and under. But if you're finding the couple you wish to donate too and they take you to their clinic then it's ok.

    You're doing a wonderful thing. I donated eggs to my sister, so obviously can't really help with finding who to donate to, but if you have any IVF questions I can answer them.

    If you want to be anonymous ( till the child turns 18 then they get your info) then go through a clinic, just call one in your area. If you would like a known donation then there are forums where people post their stories and you can read a bit about them before making contact and deciding if it's a good match and if you have the same expectations.
    Clinics will allow up to 38 with a known donor and they will do a few tests first to check your fertility.
    Good luck, I think it's one of the best things I have ever done
