Ovarian therapy (PRP) is one of the the most modern and promising fertility treatments.
What is PRP (Plated Rich Plasma) Injections
PRP Injections is a technique where blood is taken from the forearm and centrifuged so the platelet-rich plasma is isolated and then reinjected back into the ovary. It is a minimally invasive vaginal procedure with the aim that PRP would activate your ovarian stem cells to become young eggs. PRP therapy has a variety of applications in both preventive and therapeutic medicine.
How does it work
A typical blood sample consists of 55% plasma and 45% red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. At 45%, 93% consist of red blood cells, 6% of platelets and 1% of white blood cells. After any injury or injury that causes bleeding, the platelets release special growth factors, which control the inflammatory process, prevent and fight infections, triggering the healing process until the tissue is completely restored.
PRP therapeutic applications have been used with beneficial effects in orthopedics, dermatology, dentistry, gynecology, and surgery. Clinically tested for years in the treatment of soft tissue and bone graft injuries, PRP is now used by professional athletes to accelerate the healing of sports-related injuries in burn patients to help integrate skin grafts and very often after heart surgery to heal incisions in the chest wall.
The role of PRP therapy in ovarian rejuvenation
With excellent results, the treatment can be performed at any time in women who do not have a period, while in women who have, it is preferable to do it during menstruation or early in the cycle, before the development of the egg. The beneficial properties of the treatment are completed from 3 to 6 months and can be determined by measuring the levels of the hormones AMH, FSH, LH and estradiol, after three months. If AMH levels have increased while those of FSH, LH, and estradiol have decreased, then rejuvenation has taken place.
PRP treatment for ovarian rejuvenation includes two stages:
- the preparation of the PRP
- the infusion of PRP into the ovaries.
By injecting PRP into the ovaries, ovarian tissue regeneration is induced resulting in ovulation in:
menopausal or premenopausal women under the age of 50.
women over 35 with poor egg supply and low levels of antimullerian hormone
women under 35 with poor egg supply and low antimullerian hormone levels
women with premature ovarian failure
women with a history of failed conception attempts (either naturally or by a assisted reproduction method) due to the number or quality of their eggs
women with a history of unexplained infertility.
