Platelet-rich plasma

What is Platelet rich Plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma consists of two elements: plasma, or the liquid portion of blood, and platelets, a type of blood cell that plays an important role in healing throughout the body. Platelets are well-known for their clotting abilities, but they also contain growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the treated area. Platelet-rich plasma is blood that contains immensely high quanitites of platelets.

To create platelet-rich plasma, a blood sample is taken and placed into a device called a “centrifuge” that rapidly spins the sample, separating out the other components of the blood from the platelets and concentrating them within the plasma.


We have two types of PRP therapy: OVARIAN PRP and ENDOMETRIAL PRP therapies.

Ovarian PRP is an emerging therapy in ovarian rejuvenation offered to women who have suffered early menopause or who have a decreased ovarian reserve. The procedure includes injections of PRP derived from the patient’s own blood directly into the ovaries. PRP contains cytokines and growth factors to heal and revive the local tissues in the ovaries to stimulate the growth of dormant follicles. PRP therapy is a safe option as it is obtained from the woman’s own plasma it doesn’t carry the risk of any allergic reactions or risk of any blood borne infections.

Endometrial PRP has been found to improve the thickness of the endometrium, endometrial receptivity and implantation. Thus it can help women achieve a successful pregnancy. As PRP is rich in grow factors, following PRP injection within the uterine cavity, healing occurs and new cells begin to grow in the endometrium.
