Ganirelix Acetate

About Ganirelix Acetate

Ganirelix Acetate is a daily subcutaneous (under the skin) injection that is prescribed to women undergoing ovarian stimulation during IVF. Ganirelix belongs to a class of medications called "GnRH antagonists” which are used to block the production of Luteinizing Hormone (LH). Because LH is the hormone that triggers ovulation, Ganirelix injections prevent the eggs that are growing in the ovaries from ovulating (releasing) prior to the egg retrieval, called “premature ovulation". Ganirelix is typically started in the middle of ovarian stimulation (day 5 or 6) and taken until the day of the trigger shot.

Ganirelix Acetate comes in a disposable, ready-to-use prefilled syringe that requires no mixing before injection.
