G GIFT: Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer Gamete intrafallopian transfer is a type of assisted reproductive technology similar to in vitro fertilization. The procedure follows the removal of a woman’s eggs, the meeting of sperm and egg, and an immediate implantation of the egg and sperm back into the fallopian tube. Unlike IVF, in GIFT the fertilization occurs inside the fallopian tube instead of in a laboratory dish. Where IVF can be used in a woman whose infertility stems from problems in the fallopian tubes, GIFT requires that they are healthy and supportive of fertilization.

Often prescribed for infertility treatment, GnRH can stimulate ovulation in women and sperm production in men.
