Cetrotide (cetrorelix) is a medication used in fertility treatment, specifically during in vitro fertilization (IVF). It is a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist that temporarily delays ovulation. Here are the crucial points from the search results:

Cetrotide is used to prevent premature ovulation in women undergoing ovarian stimulation during IVF. It blocks the effects of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), which controls the secretion of luteinizing hormone (LH) that starts ovulation during the menstrual cycle.


  • Inspect the medication: Check Cetrotide for particles or discoloration before use. If present, discard it and don't use it.
  • Inject as directed: Follow your healthcare provider's instructions for daily dosage, injection site (stomach, at least 1 inch from belly button), and duration of use.
  • Clean the injection site: Use rubbing alcohol to cleanse the injection area before each dose.
  • Rotate injection sites: Change the injection location on your stomach each time to avoid irritation.
  • Follow the healthcare provider's instructions: Use Cetrotide exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider for optimal benefit. Don't adjust the dose or use it for longer than instructed.
  • Learn disposal methods: Ask your healthcare provider about safe storage and disposal of Cetrotide and used needles.


  • Don't use discolored or cloudy medication: If you see particles or discoloration, discard the Cetrotide and don't inject it.
  • Don't improvise injection technique: Follow your healthcare provider's specific instructions for injection location and technique.
  • Don't reuse injection sites: Inject in a different location on your stomach each time to prevent irritation.
  • Don't alter the dosage or schedule: Don't change the prescribed dose or use Cetrotide for longer than instructed by your healthcare provider.
  • Don't dispose of improperly: Learn the proper way to store and dispose of Cetrotide and used needles to avoid accidents or contamination.
