A synthetic hormone similar to GnRH that is administered in a continuous fashion by daily subcutaneous injections (Lupron) or nasal spray (Synarel). This hormone will actually suppress pituitary and ovarian function. Given this fact, we are able to use the medication to suppress the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis in many women undergoing ovulation induction for IVF. The benefit of this suppression is that it allows us to control the ovaries ourselves without interference from the hypothalamus or the pituitary.
