PRP therapy (autologous blood therapy)
PRP is the abbreviation for “platelet rich plasma,” also widely known as autologous blood therapy.
In the field of reproductive medicine, PRP is used in cases of implantation failure and inadequate build-up of the endometrium. Another area of use in gynecology is ovarian rejuvenation.
How PRP therapy works
First the blood is collected, then it is run through a centrifuge to separate the white blood cells and platelets (thrombocytes) from the red blood cells and serum. This produces platelet-rich plasma, which contains a high concentration of growth factors.
This autologous fluid is then injected into the uterus or ovaries, where it helps the tissue regenerate and blood vessels multiply and renew themselves.
PRP can be used for patients with a diminished ovarian reserve and low AMH (anti-mullerian hormone) levels, as well as in patients with premature ovarian failure or perimenopausal women under 50.
