Aside from IVF, other alternative forms of reproduction include artificial insemination, egg or sperm donation, use of a surrogate, zygote intrafallopian transfer, gamete intrafallopian transfer, or intracytoplasmic sperm injection.
Artificial fertilisation' means the introduction other than [by] natural means of a male gamete or gametes into the internal reproductive organs of a female person for the purpose of human reproduction and includes artificial insemination, in vitro fertilisation, gamete intrafallopian tube transfer, embryo intrafallopian transfer or intracytoplasmic sperm injection'.
Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) and zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT) are two variations on IVF.

Poor success rates resulted in the emergence of alternative procedures: GIFT (gamete intrafallopian transfer) and ZIFT (zygote intrafallopian transfer).
In current practices, freezing can take place at steps before or after fertilization through intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), Zygote intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) and similar fertilization and implantation techniques.

49) There are various types of ART, which include: (1) in vitro fertilization (50) ("IVF"); (2) zygote intrafallopian transfer (51) ("ZIFT"); (3) gamete intrafallopian transfer (52) ("GIFT"); and (4) intracytoplasmic sperm injection (53) ("ICSI").
An even greater incidence of heterotopic pregnancy is reported in pregnancies following assisted reproduction techniques such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), with an estimated incidence at between 1 and 3 in 100 pregnancies.
For example, ovarian hyper-stimulation followed by intrauterine insemination (IUI); in vitro fertilisation (IVF); gamete/zygote intrafallopian transfer (GIFT/ZIFT), or intracytoplasmatic sperm injection (ICSI) can increase success of conception among women for semen deficiencies (Hull, 1994).
26) Several variations of GIFT, including zygote intrafallopian transfer, (27) pronuclear stage tubal transfer, (28) tubal embryo stage transfer, (29) were developed.
When there is an infertility issue there are many options that one should consider such as starting with low tech recommendations on improving chances of pregnancy with good health practices, ovulation monitoring techniques and tools, and fertility drugs to high tech options such as in vitro fertilization, zygote intrafallopian transfer, gamete intrafallopian transfer and the like.
