OBJECTIVE: Our purpose was to determine if there is a difference in outcome associated with choice of gonadotropin-releasing hormone analog in in vitro fertilization treatment cycles. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective analysis of 510 consecutive in vitro fertilization cycles with patient-selected use of either nafarelin (Synarel) or leuprolide (Lupron) was performed. RESULTS: Of 510 consecutive patient cycles, 284 patients (56%) chose nafarelin and 226 (44%) chose leuprolide. In the nafarelin group 64 cycles (34% of retrievals) resulted in deliveries. In the leuprolide group 37 (24%) resulted in delivery (p < 0.05). There were 260 patients in their first cycle of treatment, with 157 (60%) choosing nafarelin, resulting in 33 deliveries (34% per retrieval). Leuprolide, used in 103 (40%) of first cycles, resulted in 12 deliveries (20% per retrieval), (p = 0.052). CONCLUSIONS: In a large population of unselected patients undergoing in vitro fertilization the choice of nafarelin was associated with a significantly better outcome in terms of successful pregnancies achieved.
