In GIFT, gametes are transferred to the fallopian tube. Can gametes be transferred to the uterus to achieve the same result? Explain.

Expert Answer:

The uterine environment is not ideal for the survival of gametes. If directly transferred to the uterus, gametes will undergo degeneration or could be phagocytosed, and hence, viable zygotes would not be formed.
