Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (GIFT)

IVF versus GIFT

GIFT is an alternative method to IVF. If there is at least one healthy and patent fallopian tube, the eggs and sperm can be placed directly into the fallopian tube where fertilization is most likely to occur. The resulting embryos are nutured in the tube and then move down to the uterus for implantation.

A disadvantage of GIFT is the uncertainty whether fertilization has occurred or not.
