All the GnRH agonists work in exactly the same way. When used continuously for periods of longer than 2 weeks, they stop the production of oestrogen by a series of mechanisms. This deprives the endometrial implants of oestrogen, causing them to become inactive and degenerate.

Basically they over stimulate the secretion till the pituitary is exhausted so stops the secretion. This is just one mechanism.
