Four patients with heavy menorrhagia, severe iron-deficiency anemia and contraindications to surgery were treated with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist in a depot formulation. At 2 months of therapy they were all amenorrheic, and at 6 months the hematologic values had improved markedly. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists may obviate emergency surgery in patients at high surgical risk or could constitute the first line of sequential therapeutic regimens, once general health conditions have improved.
