Gnrh stands: For gonadotropin releasing hormone. When it is excreted in pulses and travels to the pituitary gland it results in the release of two other hormones called lh and fsh which are responsible for stimulating the ovaries. Interestingly, there are medicines that consist of gnrh-like chemicals that actually suppress the ovaries because they eliminate the pulses of gnrh.
