Read on to discover what the ROPA method consists of and how it can help make the dream of being mothers together a reality.

The ROPA method: an alternative conception

The ROPA method, which stands for Reception of Oocytes from the Partner, is an assisted reproductive technique designed to enable a female couple to jointly experience biological motherhood. This method involves utilizing the eggs of one woman, referred to as the genetic mother, and fertilizing them with donor sperm.

Once the in vitro fertilization (IVF) has been performed and the embryos have been created, one or more embryos are transferred to the uterus of the other woman (called the gestational mother) to carry out the gestation.

Advantages of the ROPA Method

One of the main advantages of Babynova’s ROPA Method is that both mothers can have an active participation in the process of conception and gestation. In this way, the genetic mother contributes her eggs, which allows her to have a biological bond with the newborn, while the gestational mother has the experience of carrying the baby in her womb and giving birth.

This creates a unique bond between both women and the baby, further strengthening their family connection, and significantly differentiating it from other methods of gestation, as it generates a much stronger emotional bond.

Babynova Clinic has developed a comprehensive framework to facilitate the implementation of this procedure, prioritizing the active involvement of both mothers and maximizing medical efficacy. The scheme is designed to ensure a seamless process and achieve the highest level of effectiveness.

Ovarian Stimulation

The process of the ROPA method begins with the ovarian stimulation of the genetic mother, who will receive hormonal drugs to stimulate the production of multiple eggs.

To facilitate this process, hormonal injections are administered subcutaneously, commencing from the second or third day of the menstrual cycle. These injections stimulate the simultaneous growth of multiple follicles, allowing for the retrieval of a higher quantity of eggs.

Egg collection

The eggs will be retrieved through a procedure known as follicular puncture, which is performed under sedation or general anesthesia. Once the suitability of the collected eggs is confirmed, they will be combined with the sperm from a donor chosen by the mothers to create embryos. The development of these embryos will then be carefully monitored in the subsequent days.

 Embryo culture

Once the eggs have been collected, in vitro fertilization is performed in a controlled laboratory, so that after a few days of culture, the resulting embryos can be analyzed. The most viable ones are transferred to the uterus of the pregnant mother through a procedure similar to embryo transfer in conventional IVF.

Embryo transfer

The embryo transfer is a straightforward and painless procedure conducted using a cannula, which carefully places the embryos into the uterus. Simultaneously, an abdominal ultrasound is performed to confirm the correct positioning of the embryo. No anesthesia or specific precautions are necessary. However, the medical team provides ongoing monitoring in the subsequent days to ensure a smooth progression of the process.

One of the most outstanding advantages of this procedure is that it has a higher probability of achieving a pregnancy than others, making it one of the safest and most effective methods for mothers.

Your partner in shared motherhood

The ROPA method is an exciting and rewarding option for couples composed of two women who wish to share the experience of biological motherhood.

It allows both women to play an active role in conception and gestation, strengthening their emotional connection with the baby and consolidating a stronger family nucleus.
