Complicated: Gnrh stands for gonadotropin releasing hornone. It's a neurohormone produced in the hypothalamus (part of the brain). Its release controls the production/release of 2 pituitary hormones called luteinizing hormone (lh) and follicle stimulating hormone (fsh) which in turn regulate and affect your ovary/menstrual periods or in men sperm and testosterone production.

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.
