  • In some cases, there may be some significant degree of stress at each stage of the ROPA method.

It's time to talk about the benefits of adoption.

In this section, there is a big difference and that is that the cost for the ROPA method is much higher than the cost for adoption, and this is because the ROPA method requires several more meticulous and essential processes, which offer you a more natural pregnancy, on the other hand, the adoption may even be free or have to pay for the administrative processes, some legal fees and follow-ups that can be carried out by the institutions authorized for adoptions.

In a study, the ROPA method has an approximate price of 23,000,000 million Colombian pesos, this can fluctuate according to the tests and procedures that will be required for you to carry a successful pregnancy.

How long do I need?  

In this section, the difference between the ROPA method and adoption is similar but in some cases, the adoption may take a little longer than expected, due to the waiting time and other requirements that we explain separately:

Regarding the CLOTHING method begins with medicated ovulation which lasts between 12 to 15 days, at the next appointment, the ovum is extracted and taken to the fertilization process within the laboratory, where its development is verified within 5 days, and a specialist will perform different analyzes to choose the healthiest and most developed.

The woman who will carry the pregnancy, must be in a treatment to improve the implantation of the embryo, in which the best moment is expected to implant it inside the woman, after 11 to 12 days after implantation, the pregnancy test will be performed , which leads to the conclusion that on average, the ROPA method lasts 28 days.

On the other hand adoption it can last between nine months, a year or more. For this process, you can be on a waiting list, you will also have to carry out different processes, starting with an adoption course, where they will indicate all the necessary information, and if at the end of the course you are determined to start, you will go through three stages.

  • The first stage is administrative, the application letter to adopt will be presented, where you will agree to take the tests to verify if they are fit to adopt.
  • The judicial stage, in which they will give you the power to place you as parents of an adopted child in legal terms.
  • The last stage consists of a follow-up, which will ensure that the conditions are being met and that there is an environment that favors both the parents and the child.

They are completely different processes and your decision as future Mothers will be according to different areas, which can be financial, social and above all your perception of how you want to live your process, defining if you want to biologically experience the growth of your child or if on the contrary, they want to give a smile and adopt your child so that he can grow with you.
