Disadvantages of GnRH analogues
Although the gonadotropin releasing hormone analogues are widely used in assisted reproduction, their use as a medicine involves some risks.

The main advantage of using GnRH antagonists as an assisted reproductive treatment is that it precisely controls women's menstrual cycle, blocking this way an undesirable premature ovulation.
