PRP for Sexual Health
Issues related to sexual health are common complaints in the doctor's
office. Aging brings about normal and predictable changes in the body. As men
get older, changes in the prostate and in testosterone levels can lead to
erectile dysfunction. As women get older, estrogen levels decrease which may
lead to vaginal dryness and slower arousal.
Certain health conditions and medications can also affect
sexual health and enjoyment.
Standard treatments for these sexual issues involve lifestyle modifications
such as exercise, a nutrient-dense diet, and good communication with your
partner. Hormone therapy and medications are also commonly used to treat these
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, may also be useful in treating
issues of sexual health, particularly in patients who have failed other types
How does it work?
The normal aging process can have a profound impact on our sexual health.
Certain medical conditions can also influence sexual health. Tissues become
thinner and more fragile, leading to discomfort. Blood flow may be altered by
a variety of factors.
By injecting vaginal and penile tissue with platelet-rich plasma, up to 35
types of growth factors are delivered directly into the tissue. These growth
factors play a fundamental role in cell regeneration and tissue healing.
It's believed that PRP assists in the regeneration of tissues and also
improves blood supply. This, in turn, may alleviate a variety of sexual health
PRP stimulates the body's own natural healing response
by separating platelets from other blood components and concentrating them.
This specially prepared platelet-rich plasma contains 5 to 10 times the
concentration of platelets found in whole blood. The concentrated PRP is then
delivered into and around the site of injury via injection, stimulating and
significantly strengthening the body's healing response.2
Since PRP is an autologous therapy, using the patient's own blood product,
there is no risk of cross reactivity or immune reaction.
Studies have shown that PRP is a safe, supplemental therapy for erectile
dysfunction. A 2019 analysis of the research found that PRP therapy has the
potential for treating male sexual dysfunction. The research also clearly
shows a lack of adverse reactions with PRP.3
PRP is thought to be effective for many female sexual health conditions as
well. These include cervical ectopy, preventing wound breakdown after
reconstructive surgery for vulvar cancer, and in ovarian rejuvenation for
women with poor ovarian reserve.4
One small study found that intravaginal and intraclitoral PRP injections could
be an effective method to treat certain types of female sexual dysfunction,
especially in the areas of desire, arousal, lubrication, and orgasm.5
THE PRP PROCESS
To create a platelet-rich plasma preparation, the following
steps are performed:
A small sample of blood is drawn from the patient and injected into the Dr.
PRP blood tube.
The platelets are then separated from the other blood components and their
concentration is increased using the Dr. PRP centrifuge and by removing some
of the plasma.
The resulting platelet-rich plasma is then injected into and around the
injured site of the patient.
The concentrated growth factors contained in the plasma trigger a mild
inflammatory response which effectively jump starts the body's own
natural healing response.
The entire process takes approximately one hour, including preparation and
recovery time. For a complete demonstration of each step of the process, view
our instructional video.
The Dr. PRP is an FDA-cleared medical device, holding the esteemed 510K
clearance, meticulously designed to prepare patients' blood for PRP therapy
quickly and efficiently.
Our patented design creates high-concentration and high-quality platelet-rich
plasma that your physician can use to help stimulate the healing process. This
results in bone cell growth and tissue regeneration at the injured site.

QUICK AND CONVENIENT
- The closed system allows for more treatments in less time.
- Customize your final PRP composition for use in different situations.
The PRP can and should be administered as soon as you prepare it with our
kit – no advanced preparation is needed.
One kit holds 20 cc of fluid (3 cc of anticoagulant + 17 cc of whole blood)
and produces 4 cc of highly concentrated PRP.
The platelet recovery percentage of Dr. PRP is higher than the minimum
recovery percentage of other similar products from our competitors.
Platelets require red and white blood cells to survive long-term. Unlike gel
separators that capture the platelets within the gel, our kit allows you to
accurately create consistently efficient PRP at the concentrations you want.
Our kit can recover over 90% of platelets from a blood sample to produce the
highest quality PRP.
FDA 510K CLEARED
- The kit is now proudly holding the FDA 510K clearance.
According to the ISO 13485, our kit is made with a thorough gamma-ray
Made only with biocompatibility-certification completed raw materials.
