Ten to 30 percent of Nigerian couples suffer from infertility at one point in their life. Tubal factor infertility accounts for about 20% of infertility. It is managed currently with in vitro fertilization (IVF) when the two tubes are blocked. Eight couples with exclusive bilateral tubal blockage in the female partners were recruited for intrauterine gametes transfer (IUGT) for possible intrauterine in vivo fertilization as a cheaper alternative to IVF. Only five patients out of the eight recruited had IUGT but none achieved pregnancy.
