The article discusses the study titled "Treatment with the GnRH Antagonist Ganirelix Prevents Premature LH Rises and Luteinization in Stimulated Intrauterine Insemination: Results of a Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Multicentre Trial," by C.B. Lambalk and colleagues published in "Human Reproduction." The study suggests that treatment with gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonist (ganirelix) prevents premature rises in luteinizing hormone levels in women undergoing intrauterine insemination with controlled ovarian stiumation.
