ROPA method

What is ROPA?

ROPA is a variant of in vitro fertilisation where the reproductive cycles of both women are synchronised, enabling both to participate.

One of them prepares for egg extraction, and the other for pregnancy.

Donor sperm is used, taking into account the traits of the patients.

The ROPA Method process

Consult our specialists

Before starting ROPA treatment, a personalised individual study of the couple is necessary. The basic tests performed during this consultation are:

Donor mother

  • Ultrasound scan to confirm that the uterus and ovaries are in suitable condition to begin treatment.
  • Ovarian reserve testing through analysis of the anti-Mullerian hormone, estradiol and FSH, plus an ultrasound antral follicle count.
  • Testing for infectious diseases.

Recipient mother

  • Testing for infectious diseases.
  • Ultrasound scan to confirm that the uterus is in suitable condition to begin treatment.

However, our specialist medical team may decide more tests are necessary.

The donor sperm will be selected according to the traits of the patients.

Starting Treatment

Once we have the results of all the tests, treatment can begin.

  • The first stage consists of ovarian stimulation of the donor mother. This is done by administering gonadotropins, beginning in the first three days of menstruation.

    This medication provides a controlled stimulation of the ovaries. About 5 days after stimulation begins, medication with GnRH antagonists is added, which controls the ovarian stimulation and enables a better response to the gonadotropins, as well as avoiding an LH spike to stop ovulation.

  • This medication must be taken daily.

    Approximately every 48 hours, ultrasound scans will be performed to monitor the follicles, and the gynaecologist will decide when to schedule the follicular puncture. At this moment the patient must stop taking all the medication and be given an injection to induce ovulation. Ovulation can be induced by a GnRH agonist.

  • In the case of the recipient mother, on the first day of her period, treatment begins with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The gynaecologist will monitor the patient using ultrasound scans until the endometrium is ready for transfer.

IVF

  • The donor mother will undergo a follicular puncture 36 hours after administration of the GnRH agonist.
  • On the night of the puncture of the donor mother, the recipient mother begins progesterone treatment to prepare for the embryo transfer.

Transfer

The embryo transfer will be carried out 5 days after the puncture.

Pregnancy Test

La prueba de embarazo se realiza entre 10-14 días post transferencia.
