Cetrorelix uses

Cetrorelix is used in the treatment of female infertility.

How cetrorelix works

In females undergoing treatment for infertility, sometimes premature ovulation can lead to the release of eggs which are not ready for fertilisation. Cetrorelix blocks the action of a natural hormone and prevents premature release of the eggs from the ovary. In males, Cetrorelix lowers the amount of testosterone (a male hormone) produced by the body. This may slow or stop the spread and growth of prostate cancer cells that need testosterone to grow.
