Reciprocal IVF - ROPA Method


WHAT IS reciprocal IVF or Ropa Method ?

The ROPA method is an in vitro fertilization treatment devised for female couples. ROPA stands for “Reception of Ovocytes from Partner”.

Through this assisted reproduction technique, eggs are donated from one woman to the other, the future pregnant mother. This way, you both participate in the gestation process and you are both an active part thereof.


The ROPA Method is a variant of in vitro fertilization in which we should synchronize your ovulation cycles.

One of the treatments with the best rates of pregnancy, around 70%

The woman contributing the egg will undergo ovarian stimulation.  This process will last at the most 12 days. Then the eggs are retrieved by an ovaraian puncture under sedation, a quick and painless process. In the laboratory, the eggs will be fertilized with the sperm from an anonymous donor and the embryos will be transferred to the uterus of the woman who will become pregnant.

In addition to the tests the law demands, in our center, every sperm donor undergoes a genetic disease carrier Test, to rule out around 300 diseases.

This test can also be taken by the woman contributing the egg, to minimize the possibilities of transmission of genetic diseases.


Even though the success rate of the ROPA Method is one of the highest in assisted reproduction treatments, around 70%, success of pregnancy is closely linked with the age and ovarian reserve of the woman donating the egg.

Another important factor to take into account is the condition of the uterus of the woman who will carry the pregnancy; any pathology can diminish the odds of pregnancy.

Before performing the ROPA Method, we will check the reproductive health of both of you, and depending on the results and your maternity project, we will propose the best treatment to follow.
