A treatment for stimulation cycles that prevents egg loss by blocking early ovulation

Designed to provide effective cycle control

Cetrotide® (cetrorelix acetate for injection) blocks the effects of a natural hormone, called gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). GnRH controls the secretion of another hormone, called luteinizing hormone (LH), which induces ovulation during the menstrual cycle.


Cetrotide® blocks undesirable premature ovulation. Premature ovulation may lead to eggs that are not available for egg retrieval.
