ROPA method

The ROPA method is aimed to lesbian couples and involves receiving eggs from the partner.

In the process, eggs are retrieved from one partner after ovarian stimulation. These eggs are then fertilized with donor sperm, which will be selected following the physical characteristics of the woman who carries the pregnancy. Finally, the embryos are transferred following an endometrial preparation process.

This shared motherhood method allows married female couples to actively participate of creating their family.

Stages of ROPA method


The receptor will start a hormonal treatment to prepare her endometrium for receiving the embryo(s).

 This treatment is tailored to each patient. It generally starts with a pituitary inhibition phase (induced by injectable medication) and the administration of oral oestrogen that will allow the endometrium to grow. Pituitary inhibition is not always required. 

After approximately 10 to 14 days of endometrial preparation, an ultrasound scan will be performed in order to check its thickness is appropriate for embryo reception. Hormonal analysis are also required to ensure optimum levels.

Once the endometrium is ready, the receptor should wait for her partner to finish the ovarian stimulation process. Once the eggs are retrieved, an IVF/ICSI procedure is performed in the lab using donor sperm.  

Embryo transfer occurs 5 or 6 days after the egg retrieval. 

The number of embryos transferred will depend on each particular case.

A blood pregnancy test is performed 12 days after the embryo transfer. An ultrasound scan is scheduled 2 weeks after a positive result to confirm a pregnancy is in progress.
