INVOcell and ROPA Method: New Frontiers in Assisted Reproduction

Fertility science is advancing in leaps and bounds, offering hope and possibilities to those who want to start or expand their family. Recently, an event in Spain marked a milestone: the birth of Europe's first baby carried by two women using a reproduction technique called INVOcell, underscoring the potential of assisted reproductive technologies. At Ingenes, although we do not yet offer INVOcell, we are attentive to these developments to evaluate their future incorporation into our services.

INVOcell: Natural Incubation

INVOcell is an intravaginal incubation device that allows fertilization and the early stages of embryonic development to occur inside a woman's body rather than in a laboratory. It is a more natural and potentially more affordable alternative to traditional IVF.

ROPA Method: A Shared Maternal Bond

The ROPA Method, on the other hand, is a form of IVF designed for couples of women who want both to participate biologically in the pregnancy: one provides the egg and the other carries the baby.
