Use Cystorelin like Ovugel???

Since Ovugel is basically GNRH, and so is Cystorelin, I wondered if anyone has tried squirting Cystorelin into the cervix like Ovugel? Could it work the same way?

I have a couple of sows that are way too needle shy to give injections to, so I wondered if this would work. I just cannot afford the Ovugel. My thinking (right or wrong) is that if one is absorbed into the tissue of the cervix, why not the other?

Yes, I know this would be "off label", I have been in the medical (human) industry for a very long time, and found that a lot of drugs are absorbed sub-lingually (under the tongue) as well or better than through the stomach. Since Ovugel is a form of GnRH and is absorbed in the cervix, why wouldn't other forms do just as well?

I know I may be treading on Ovugel's manufacturers profits, but it is too expensive for me to use at the present time.
