Uses

How it works

Cetrorelix In females undergoing treatment for infertility sometimes premature ovulation can lead to release of eggs not ready for fertilization. Cetrorelix blocks the action of a natural hormone and prevents premature release of the eggs from the ovary. In males Cetrorelix works by decreasing 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.
