Success rate

Around 25 to 30% of these Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer cycles which will result in pregnancy,women who are healthier, and younger do have a higher success rate Pros: This procedure, allows fertilisation to occur in a natural environment.


There is no guarantee, that fertilisation has occurred, this procedure, is more complicated than IVF, as a laparoscope is used to insert the egg/sperm that is mixed into the tubes. If one or more eggs are used,there is considerably a higher risk-than-normal risk of a multiple birth.
