Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (gnrh) stimulates the production what?

Good question: Gnrh would seem by its name to help release gonadotropin. And if used in a certain fashion it could cause the release of gonadotropins (lh, fsh). However when given in a shot and having a sustained effect on the pituitary, it actually suppresses the release of lh and fsh. And this aspect of the medication can be used to help in many situations.
