Reproductive medicine makes it possible for a woman and her women partner’s dreams, of having a baby, come true.

Why not mom and mommy?
More and more women, or same sex couples, are deciding decide to start their own family. Strong and brave women, determined to fulfill their dreams of parenthood.
In this case, the ROPA Method, Reception of Oocytes from the Couple, allows motherhood to be shared between the two women of the couple, one being the one who provides the egg and the other getting becoming pregnant and carrying the child.
Through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), the egg of one of the two women is fertilized in the laboratory using a previously obtained donor sperm. The resulting embryo is then implanted will implant itself in the uterus of the other woman.
Can we decide who will carry out the pregnancy?
Yes. This is a very personal matter that the couple should decide themselves, must be clear about as long as there is are no problems that may make us think about the preference , always for medical reasons, of one or the other carrying out e the pregnancy.
For this reason it is very important that, during the first visit, an evaluation of the gynecological health of the two both prospective parents is carried out, as well as a study of their clinical history, in order to determine and advise, based on the results, the chances of pregnancy.
In the event that there is no type of anomaly or risk, both for the future mother or the future baby, the decision will be up to the couple at all times.
How does ROPA method work?:
- Ovarian stimulation: The egg donor mother or genetic mother undergoes an ovarian stimulation process in order for her to produce more eggs than she would have in a natural cycle. This is done to increase the chances of achieving pregnancy.
- Follicular puncture: Once the eggs are mature, the puncture is performed, which consists of the extraction of the eggs.
- Embryo culture and fertilization: In the laboratory, the eggs are fertilized with sperm from a compatible anonymous donor and are followed for a maximum of 6 days.
- Preparation of the woman who receives the embryo: The pregnant mother is subjected to hormonal treatment to prepare the endometrium and facilitate the implantation of the embryo.
- Embryo transfer: To transfer the best quality embryo to the uterus, the medical team has to match the maturation of the embryo with an optimal state of the pregnant mother’s endometrium.
