What is G.I.F.T.

This is an alternative techniques for treating infertility. G.I.F.T. stands for Gamete Intra-Fallopian Transfer. The word gamete refers to the sex cells, i.e. both eggs and sperm.

How does the G.I.F.T. method work

In the G.I.F.T. method, eggs are retrieved from the ovaries as in I.V.F. using either laparoscopy or T.U.D.O.R. These eggs are then transferred with a specially prepared sperm sample into the outer fimbrial opening of the fallopian tube by laparoscopy under a general anaesthetic.

What are the advantages of G.I.F.T.

The advantage that G.I.F.T. offers is that it allows fertilisation to take place naturally within the fallopian tube with a higher chance that implantation will also occur naturally. The obvious requirement is that the tubes must be patent and healthy. G.I.F.T. therefore offers an alternative treatment to couples where I V.F may have been the only other option. 

What other treatments involve injection of sperm

In addition to G.I.F.T., other techniques that involve the injection of sperm alone, or with retrieved eggs into the peritoneal cavity via the vagina, such as V.I.S.P.E.R. (Vaginal Injection of Sperm Peritoneally) are at present being evaluated. It is hoped that techniques such as V.I.S.P.E.R. will be more straightforward to perform than G.I.F.T., and will, if performed under the control of ultrasound guidance alone, remove the need for a general anaesthetic, which is always associated with laparoscopy.
