Zygote Intrafallopian What Is Involved
ZIFT candidate: Embryos live best in the environment of the tubes which act as natural incubators. For women older than 42, ivf may not offer much advantage over the natural cycle. Some studies had shown that placing embryos (zift) or the sperm and eggs (gift) into the distal tubes could yield higher live birth rates than ivf. For most patients, however, ivf is more cost effective than zift or gift. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You Don't: No reputable program would offer this technique unless perhaps you were born without a vagina.
