We have been trying to have a baby for several years. My Doctor has now suggested we try GIFT. What exactly is this ?
Answer : The initials stand for Gamete Intra Fallopian Transfer. An egg recovered from inside your body is mixed with sperm and then transferred immediately to the inside of your Fallopian tube at the end nearest to the womb. The baby created by this method is part of you and your husband if his sperm is used. This technique of fertilization as especially useful for those women who have a blockage near the ovaries while the rest of the Fallopian tube is normal.
