Cetrorelix is classified as a GnRH antagonist medication, utilized in the prevention of premature ovulation during ovarian stimulation in women. By inhibiting the actions of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), cetrorelix regulates the secretion of luteinizing hormone (LH), which initiates ovulation in the menstrual cycle. By precisely timing the release of the egg, cetrorelix optimizes the conditions for successful conception to take place.
