Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer (ZIFT)

Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer (ZIFT)

A Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer, or ZIFT, is another type of in vitro fertilization, in which a fertilized egg which has not yet divided is inserted into healthy fallopian tubes rather than the uterus. This procedure may be more successful than a gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) because your doctor has a greater chance of ensuring the egg is fertilized.

In a ZIFT procedure, the woman’s ovaries are treated with medication to increase the likelihood of producing multiple eggs. Eggs are collected, then fertilized in a laboratory in a procedure identical to IVF, except that fertilized eggs are transferred within 24 hours, rather than three to five days. Fertilized eggs are injected directly into the fallopian tube through a catheter. Once the procedure is done, the woman is monitored for early signs of pregnancy, including regular blood and urine tests.
