The Danazol - A drug used for treating endometriosis (a condition in which fragments of the uterine lining occur elsewhere in the pelvic cavity), noncancerous breast disease, and menorrhagia (heavy periods).

Danazol suppresses the release of gonadotrophin hormones (pituitary hormones that stimulate activity in the ovaries), which in turn reduces the production of the hormone oestrogen. This action usually prevents ovulation and causes irregularity or absence of menstrual periods.

Possible adverse effects include nausea, rash, and weight gain. Pregnancy should be avoided while taking danazol.
