```Hi Chiara,

sysuse auto
probit foreign price mpg
mfx
sum price
local mean_price = r(mean)
#delimit ;
twoway (function y = _b[mpg]*normden(_b[price]*`mean_price'+
_b[mpg]*x+_b[_cons]), range(mpg)) ;
#delimit cr

This plots the marginal effect of the mpg variable over its range
following a probit regression. The logic is the same with -biprobit-
but the formula for the marginal effect will of course be a little
more intricate in that case.
