Cetrotide Description
Cetrotide is an injection
The active ingredient in Cetrotide is called Cetrorelix. Cetrotide prevents eggs from being released too early, this process is called controlled ovarian stimulation. Cetrotide blocks the gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) that causes eggs to be released from the ovaries giving the eggs more time to develop before they are finally released.  Cetrotide is a very effective fertility drug and is often used as part of an IVF drugs program.
Cetrotide - What's Included
This package contains 0.25mg Cetrotide powder and solvent for solution for injection. The injections are not pre-prepared.

Cetrotide Uses and Side Effects
Cetrotide Uses & Indications:
Cetrotide is a controlled ovarian stimulator, used in women experiencing fertility difficulties. It works against the GnRH hormone and allows the egg more time to develop before being released. Cetrotide is used alongside HCG hormones which encourages the egg growth and the healthy ovulation of mature eggs. 
Cetrotide Side Effects:
Common Cetrotide side effects include: Redness/pain/itching at the site of the injection.
Serious Cetrotide side effects that require urgent medical attention include: pain, swelling or severe cramping in the abdomen area. 
If you develop a rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), experience severe dizziness or have trouble breathing it might be caused by a severe allergic reaction, seek urgent medical attention.
