Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy
As a woman ages, her ovaries are unable to produce the hormones that stimulate egg follicles to develop and make them reach a viable stage of development.
A woman in her 40s may still be able to ovulate, but her healthy eggs may have been depleted and those remaining are of a poor quality, potentially leading to an increased chance of an abnormal pregnancy.
- Increased chance for miscarriage
- Increased chance for conceiving a chromosomally abnormal baby – Down Syndrome
Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy involves the injection of a woman’s blood platelet rich plasma directly into her ovaries. The expected clinical result from this procedure is to induce Growth Factors to help the ovaries functioning again – even post-menopause.
Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy is an outpatient procedure performed by injecting a woman’s blood Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into her ovaries. The PRP injection and punctures to the ovaries simultaneously stimulate growth of egg follicles. The ovaries are infused with proteins rich in growth factors and stem cell chemoattractants.
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is used in other areas of medicine
- Sports Medicine
- Plastic Surgery
