The addition of frozen eggs to the Tulip platform will offer intended parents unparalleled choice to build their families.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 8, 2021: Tulip, the world’s largest egg donor database and trusted resource for intended parents to find their ideal donor, and Cryos International Sperm and Egg Bank, announce a new partnership to offer intended parents access to their frozen egg donors when searching for a match within Tulip’s database.
“Our mission is to provide access to as many donor options for intended parents as possible when they navigate this complex and challenging process,” said Gail Sexton Anderson, Co-founder of Tulip. “The addition of frozen eggs to our existing fresh-only donor egg database means that intended parents can now have a choice and weigh pros and cons between both fresh and frozen eggs when choosing a donor.”
There are a number of reasons why intended parents may opt for frozen eggs over fresh. Typically, the cost of utilizing frozen eggs is lower than working with fresh ones. Frozen eggs are also ready when the intended parents are, with zero wait time and coordination required for a donor cycle to complete. Lastly, frozen eggs may be a better choice if the intended parents are seeking to have only one child, as eggs are frozen and sold in cohorts of six, unlike fresh cycles where 20 to 40 eggs could be retrieved.
“Partnering with Tulip represents an important step for our organization as we seek to broaden awareness of our egg bank to intended parents worldwide,” said Corey Burke, Tissue Bank Director of Cryos International. “With a pregnancy rate of 75% and delivery of frozen eggs in as little as two days, our option enables intended parents to have an important alternative to lengthy and more costly fresh donor cycles.”
The Tulip platform is HIPAA compliant, and uses blockchain technology to protect personal data. Tulip also enables intended parents who prefer personalized and comprehensive fertility support to seamlessly transition to Donor Concierge, where an experienced team of case managers are available. In fact, many of the Donor Concierge case managers have themselves been egg donors and/or gestational carriers, as well as parents of children conceived via egg donation and surrogacy.
