What About Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer GIFT and Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer ZIFT

GIFT is a procedure where the eggs and sperm are placed directly into the woman's fallopian tube during a laparoscopy procedure. The ovaries are stimulated with fertility medications, and the mature eggs are retrieved during an ultrasound guided procedure, much like IVF. However, with GIFT, the eggs are mixed with the washed, enhanced sperm and then placed directly into the fallopian tube during a laparos-copy. The eggs are (hopefully) fertilized within the woman's body, unlike IVF, which fertilizes the eggs in a laboratory.

ZIFT is a combination of GIFT and IVF. For the ZIFT procedure, fertilized eggs are placed directly into the woman's fallopian tube during a laparoscopy procedure. As with the other techniques, the ovaries are stimulated with fertility medications, and the mature eggs are retrieved during an ultrasound guided procedure. Then, like IVF, the eggs are mixed with the washed, enhanced sperm in the laboratory and monitored for fertilization. The only difference is where the embryos are placed after the procedure. In IVF they are placed into the uterus without the need for surgery, but for ZIFT they are placed within the fallopian tube with a laparoscopy procedure.
