The growing utilization of assisted reproductive technology (ART) by the LGBTQ+ community, especially among lesbian couples, challenges societal norms and promotes inclusivity. The reception of oocytes from partner (ROPA) technique enables both female partners to have a biological connection to their child. A systematic review was conducted of the literature on ROPA IVF to provide the latest data and a SWOT analysis was subsequently performed to understand the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats associated with ROPA IVF. Publications from 2000 to 2023 with relevant keywords were reviewed and 16 records were included. Five studies provided clinical information on couples who used ROPA IVF. ROPA IVF provides a unique opportunity for a biological connection between the child and both female partners and addresses concerns related to oocyte donation and anonymity. Weaknesses include limited cost-effectiveness data and unresolved practical implications. Opportunities lie in involving both partners in parenthood, advancing ART success rates and mitigating risks. Threats encompass increased pregnancy complications, ethical concerns, insufficient safety data, legal or cultural barriers, and emotional stress. In conclusion, ROPA IVF offers a promising solution for lesbian couples seeking to create a family in which both partners want to establish a biological connection with their child.
