What Ever Happened To Gift And Zift

GIFT was introduced in 1984 and enjoyed widespread popularity for many years. ZIFT also was widely used during the 1980s and 1990s. Both GIFT and ZIFT

report very similar pregnancy success rates when compared to IVF. However, GIFT and ZIFT are rarely performed anymore.

The major reason is that both GIFT and ZIFT require a laparoscopy surgical procedure and general anesthesia. This makes GIFT and ZIFT considerably more expensive and more physically demanding than IVF. Given the additional costs and potential physical risks of surgery and anesthesia, it's difficult to justify GIFT or ZIFT in preference to IVF.

Talk with your doctor to determine if GIFT or ZIFT is a realistic fertility treatment choice for you. Some doctors believe that it may be useful in certain situations. However, for the most part, many doctors say that GIFT and ZIFT are about ready to be reassigned to the history books.
