For this purpose, in the treatment of breast cancer, estrogen hormone in the body is tried to be reduced. In women, estrogen is produced from the male hormone androgens. Drugs that prevent the growth of estrogen hormone from androgens, which have been popular in the last 15 years, have been successfully applied in the treatment of breast cancer. Another effect of estrogen hormone; The higher the level in women is to prevent the development of ovaries.

When these drugs are used in menopausal women, it has been observed that they lay eggs again.

In recent years, we have been using these drugs to reduce the cost of treatment and increase the chances of success in patients with decreased ovarian reserve, especially since we live in the period when the first childbearing age increases, especially in advanced age and women with decreased ovarian reserve. As an alternative treatment, this route can be followed, since it is administered less than a week, there is no side effect or cancer development effect. For example, this drug is easily used to prevent estrogen hormone increase in the body when it is wanted to have IVF treatment in patients with uterine or breast cancer who have a history of cancer, and it eliminates the risk of cancer recurrence in patients.
