Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy and Sexual Dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction is a very common complaint among women of all ages, however it often goes undiscussed in mainstream conversations about wellness. It can be influenced by many different factors, including excess vaginal tissue, hormone imbalance, genetics, emotional health, and menopause. The symptoms of sexual dysfunction are often described as a low sex drive, difficulty with arousal or reaching climax, vaginal dryness, or discomfort during intercourse.
Enter Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP Injection
PRP is a substance that is easily obtained by concentrating a patient’s blood. The platelets contained in PRP consist of powerful cytokines and growth factors, activating tissue regeneration, stimulating collagen, and increasing blood flow to the area where they are injected. When the PRP shot is injected into the clitoral and vaginal tissue, women may experience an overall more pleasurable sexual experience secondary to increased arousal, more intense orgasm, increase in vaginal lubrication, and increased clitoral/vaginal sensitivity.
PRP is a great therapy that can be used alone or in conjunction with other services. In order to achieve optimal sexual wellness, we often recommend it to women undergoing labiaplasty, vaginoplasty, ThermiVa, and/or hormone replacement therapy. It is also a safe option for women who do not wish to, or are unable to, take hormones.
The PRP for the injection is obtained through a simple blood draw in our office. After a short processing time, the PRP is injected into clitoral tissue and the upper vaginal wall, which have been numbed for your comfort. With a quick recovery period, downtime is minimal and the risks are low. You may need more than one treatment to achieve optimal results.
