In an 8-year review of ectopic pregnancy (EP) rates in donor egg recipients and standard patients undergoing in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer (IVF-ET) at a large university-based program, we report an EP rate of 0.6% in donor egg recipients and 0.9% in standard IVF patients, a difference that is not statistically significant. Donor egg recipients were found to have a significantly lower incidence of tubal disease compared with standard IVF patients; however, tubal disease was not found to be an independent risk factor for EP in our practice, perhaps owing to aggressive management of tubal disease
