PRP Therapy: Why It’s Amazing
There’s often a lot of talk around women’s health, wellbeing, hormones, menopause, and the list could go on and on, but when it comes to women’s sexual health? Radio silence.
Although many women suffer from sexual dysfunction (over a quarter of all women), there’s little conversation and knowledge around successful treatments.
Today we want to give a platform to one of our most popular treatments—PRP therapy. This therapy is a non-invasive treatment that aims to alleviate female sexual dysfunction by extracting PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, from a woman’s blood and injecting it directly into the vaginal area.
Have you heard of this before? Still not sure what to think? Read on, we have all of the answers!
What You Need to Know About PRP Therapy
For starters, this treatment is done by a certified professional and includes using your blood platelets, which are then injected into your vaginal tissue.
These platelets, PRP (platelet rich plasma) contain cell regenerating growth factors that when injected into specific areas of the vagina, trigger stem cells to increase blood flow and generate healthy tissue growth, as well as help, improve the vascularization of the area.
So, how does it work? We’ll start with a simple blood draw from the arm and then put the sample into a centrifuge to produce the Platelet-Rich Plasma.
Once the PRP is extracted from the blood, it is injected into the numbed area near the clitoris and upper vagina.
Although every patient has a different pain tolerance and experience, it’s most commonly pain-free thanks to our numbing agents.
Most patients report a warm sensation or slight pinch. The best part? No downtime necessary and the whole procedure takes about 30 minutes tops!
Wondering about side effects? Don’t be alarmed if you experience mild redness, swelling, and numbness for the first few days to one week.
Your PRP therapy provider will walk you through all the steps beforehand and is available for questions or concerns after!
Who is PRP Therapy For?
Because it is a non-surgical procedure using only PRP from the patient’s blood, nearly any female patient experiencing some level of sexual dysfunction may benefit from PRP therapy.
While the ability to achieve orgasm is one of the biggest benefits, patients dealing with bladder leakage and other issues may also benefit. This procedure can be effective for women dealing with any of the following issues:
- Decreased libido
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Dryness (with resulting painful intercourse) from Menopause or Breast Cancer Treatment
- Decreased ability to orgasm
- Urge urinary incontinence
- Chronic pain from trauma from childbirth (episiotomy scars)
Can you identify with any of the above? Many women don’t realize that there is a solution for sexual and urinary problems.
