What are the success rates of gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) and zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT)?

ANSWER

The CDC groups together all procedures that constitute assisted reproduction technology (ART), including in vitro fertilization, GIFT, and ZIFT. So there's no way to know the success rates of each technique. Combined, however:

  • About 30% of all cycles that used the woman's own eggs or embryos led to successful pregnancies.
  • About 70% of the cycles carried out did not result in a pregnancy.
  • About 82% of pregnancies resulted in a live birth.
