what is the method ROPA?

Although most assisted reproduction processes arise from solving or providing help in terms of fertility problems, in recent years they have been able to lend a hand to other types of cases. It is not always a fertility problem that presents itself as an obstacle in pregnancy, maternity or biological paternity. The latest advances in fertility techniques have given way to treatments such as the method ROPA, which has become the option most chosen by homoparental couples of women willing to share maternity. 

what is the method ROPA?

This is how the method of Reception of Oocytes from the Couple is known, in which one of the women provides the ovules and the other woman will carry out the pregnancy (pregnant woman). It consists of the extraction of oocytes from one of the women so that they are fertilized with semen from a donor. Once the best embryo is selected, it is transferred to the uterus of the other woman, ready for pregnancy.  

Synthetically, the method ROPA consists of 5 steps:

  • Ovarian stimulation

Perform Controlled Ovarian Stimulation (COS) on the woman from whom the eggs will be obtained.

  • Follicular puncture

This technique is used to extract these eggs. 

  • endometrial preparation

On the other hand, the woman who will have the pregnancy must prepare her endometrium for implantation.

  • Fertilization and culture of embryos

Now, with In Vitro Fertilization or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection, we move on to the embryo culture stage.

  • embryo transfer

We transfer the embryos to the endometrium of the pregnant woman.
