ZIFT (Zygote Intrafallopian transfer) is a better option for transferring embryos back into the body. Remember that an embryo on Day 1, 2 3 belongs in the fallopian tube - not in the petri dish or the uterus ! Rather than put embryos into the uterus on Day 2 or 3, it is better to put them back where they belong - the fallopian tube ! The pregnancy rates with ZIFT have always been higher than with IVF-ET. However, few clinics have the expertise or the ability to provide this option, as it needs a skilled laparoscopic surgeon and an Operation Theater facility. We are proud to be one of the few clinics in the world which can do a ZIFT.
