This treatment requires the first three steps of IVF: ovarian hyperstimulation, egg retrieval, and fertilization of the eggs in the laboratory. As opposed to IVF, the tubal embryo transfer (TET) procedure requires the laparoscopic placement of the embryos in the fallopian tube(s), allowing the tube to be the natural incubator. The disadvantage of the TET procedure is that two separate procedures requiring anesthesia are performed, such as the egg retrieval along with a laparoscopy. This process is rarely performed but may be considered when there is altered cervical anatomy preventing a transcervical embryo transfer.
