About CETROLIX PFS 0.25MG INJECTION 1ML

CETROLIX PFS 0.25MG INJECTION 1ML belongs to the class of drugs called hormones used to treat female infertility in women. Infertility is unable to become pregnant after trying for a year. Female infertility may be caused due to different factors affecting ovulation (release of an egg from the ovary), fertilization (fusion of sperm and egg), and implantation (fertilized egg attaches to uterus lining).

If eggs are released too early during fertility treatment, they may not be suitable for fertilization. CETROLIX PFS 0.25MG INJECTION 1ML contains Cetrorelix, an anti-gonadotropin-releasing hormone that works by blocking a natural hormone in the body. Thereby, it inhibits premature ovulation (the release of eggs from the ovary too early).

Take CETROLIX PFS 0.25MG INJECTION 1ML as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take CETROLIX PFS 0.25MG INJECTION 1ML for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience itching, redness, or swelling at the site of injection, headache, or nausea. Most of these side effects of CETROLIX PFS 0.25MG INJECTION 1ML do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.
