In brief: Not used in USA

Decapeptyl is a gnrh agonist which is used in ivf, in europe / other countries.
It can be a monthly depot injection, or daily subcutaneous injections. The daily version can be used to prevent you from ovulating before an egg retrieval, or in a microdose flare protocol for 'poor responders'. The depot version can be used before frozen embryo or donor egg cycles. Hard to get pregnant after this med.

appreciate the information but to her question if she did take a GnRH agonist and then got pregnant later naturally I do not believe there would be any affect to the pregancy

In brief: Unlikely

Have your reproductive specialist doing ivf reassure you but it is to get you pregnant and not there when you are pregnant.
