Suprefact, with the generic name Buserelin acetate, is a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRH agonist) in the form of an injection, implant, or nasal spray. This synthetic hormone helps to treat endometriosis by inhibiting the release of estrogen, and it also helps control in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments.
Doctors may prescribe Suprefact to treat carcinoma of the prostate gland, a type of cancer, in men, or to treat breast cancer in women. Fertility doctors may also prescribe this medication to women with uterine fibroids or endometriosis, treating their infertility and other symptoms. Some doctors may also prescribe the drug as part of an in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment or other fertility treatment, controlling the timing of ovulation.
The GnRH agonist in Suprefact interacts with the GnRH receptors in the body. Instead of pulses of GnRH from the hypothalamus, this medicine floods the body with this hormone, reducing the release of hormones like estrogen, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and luteinizing hormone (LH). This can control the release of eggs from the ovaries, to time fertility treatments. When Suprefact inhibits estrogen secretion in the body, it can reduce the response of the uterine tissue that is growing outside of the uterus. This helps to reduce symptoms of endometriosis including reducing inflammation in tissue that may be blocking the ovaries. With the ovaries unblocked, an egg can be released for fertilization.
Suprefact comes in the form of an injectable solution, an implant, or a nasal spray, and your fertility doctor will give you instructions on how and when to take the drug, or you can refer to your product insert. For the nasal spray, each pump of the spray pump releases 100 mcg of Buserelin. If your doctor prescribes a dose of 400 mcg three times a day, you should spray two sprays of this medication into each nostril each time. Your doctor may prescribe Suprefact for six months, but not longer than nine months. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible unless it is close to your next dose, in which case you should not double dose.

You can keep it at room temperature up to five weeks after opening, and the injectable solution up to fourteen days after opening. Keep the drug out of the reach of children.
Your fertility doctor may prescribe Suprefact along with drugs that contain the gonadotropins luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), such as Gonal-F or Menopur, to help stimulate the ovaries. Your doctor may also prescribe human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) to mature the eggs. You may use fertility monitors and fertility tests to help determine the best time to conceive.
Endometriosis is the growth of uterine tissue outside the uterus, such as in the ovaries, in the fallopian tubes, on the outside of the uterus, in the intestines, or in other organs. Because this is uterine tissue, it experiences the same growth, breakdown, and bleeding as the uterine lining during the menstrual cycle. This means that the tissue can cause pain and discomfort as it goes through this process, but it can also cause pain during bowel movements, sex, exercise, or at other times. If scar tissue from endometriosis blocks the fallopian tubes, it can block eggs from leaving the ovaries to be fertilized by sperm, causing infertility. In fact, endometriosis is one of the leading causes of infertility in women. The symptoms of endometriosis include pelvic pain, severe abdominal pain before and after a menstrual period, lower back pain, painful urination or bowel movements, painful sexual intercourse, heavy periods or spotting, and fatigue. A doctor may test for endometriosis using a laparoscopy, which involves a camera, or a biopsy. The doctor may then treat the endometriosis using surgery or medication to reduce inflammation and pain, and they may also treat the infertility from endometriosis using fertility drugs to induce ovulation.
