RECEPRION OF OOCYTES FROM THE PARTNER
Cyprus Hope IVF Consultation
ROPA stands for Reception of Oocytes from the Partner. In vitro fertilization (IVF) with reception of oocytes from partner (ROPA) allows lesbian mothers to share biological motherhood.
This method consists of an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) procedure where one woman contributes with her oocytes and the other women contributes with her uterus. The reason for this method being highly popular amongst female same-sex couples is that both women can actively participate in the process, in order to achieve a full-term pregnancy and a healthy baby.
ROPA (Reception of Oocytes from Partner – ROPA) is also referred to as Reciprocal IVF and this shared maternity method enables lesbian couples to feel totally involved in their pregnancy. One partner donates the eggs while the other has the embryos placed into her to carry the pregnancy and give birth.
This method is carried out here at Cyprus HOPE IVF in Cyprus through In Vitro Fertilization shared between both women and the donor’s semen.
The patient, normally the younger woman, will undergo hormonal stimulation in order to prepare for egg collection. Her partner’s uterus will be prepared to receive the embryos and will become the expectant mother.
A donor’s semen sample will be needed to inseminate the eggs. This donor is anonymous and is selected based on his physical characteristics as well as his blood type. At Cyprus HOPE IVF we work with the most renowned sperm banks, Cryos International Sperm Bank and the European Sperm Bank, to ensure the highest quality for our patients.
We are proud to welcome same-sex couples and help them enable their dream of shared motherhood.
How long do I need to spend in Cyprus?
Treatment from start to finish will be 21 days and you only need to be here in Cyprus for a minimum of 7 nights. Treatment can begin in your own country and then we can co-ordinate treatment around desired travel dates.
Why should you consider IVF abroad?
When thinking of treatment, travelling abroad to North Cyprus is not at the top of the list, why travel so far when IVF is offered in your own country?
