How Does GnRHa WORK

GnRHa works by shutting down your body's reproductive hormones (FSH and LH), causing them to drop to almost zero. This subsequently causes a dramatic drop in your estradiol (estrogen) levels. Your normal menstrual cycle, hormones, and ovulation are all shut down.

When used as part of an IVF protocol, GnRHa suppresses your body's own hormones and improves the dependability and predictability of your IVF cycle, because when left to their own devices, your hormones may not always operate efficiently. For example, you might be producing only one dominant follicle or you may be prematurely ovulating, resulting in poor egg quality and a lower chance of success. If you first shut down your hormones with GnRHa and then give another medication (gonadotropins) to stimulate them, your hormones function normally and ovulation will occur in a more controlled and more predictable fashion.

When used in the treatment of endometriosis, the medication shrinks the endometriosis implants, which relieves the pain. GnRHa is sometimes used prior to surgery because it makes the endometriosis implants smaller and easier to remove. It also helps reduce the amount of scar tissue. Because of risks and side effects, GnRHa is typically only used for a short period of time, three to six months. The benefits of this treatment for endometriosis are often only a temporary solution, lasting for a few months. For others, pain relief lasts considerably longer.
