What is PRP?
PRP is a concentrated blood product that carries a rich number of platelets having natural healing and regenerative properties. In general, blood consists of four most important biomolecules and cells:
- Plasma is the liquid portion of blood that is primarily made up of proteins, dissolved salts, and water. It makes up over half of the total volume of blood. Additionally, this provides how all of the various additives found in the blood can be transported throughout the body.
- Platelets: Sometimes called thrombocytes, platelets are fragments of cells that help the blood clot. Upon injury, these cells release various molecules and substances to halt bleeding.
- Red Blood Cells: Also known as erythrocytes, red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen. They are necessary for the body’s removal of carbon dioxide and the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide, as well as for supplying oxygen to tissue.
- White Blood Cells: Often called leukocytes, white blood cells are in charge of the immune system in the body. They are anti-infection and anti-foreign-material agents that work inside the body. They are an essential component of our body and well-being.
PRP procedure for IVF
Ovarian Rejuvenation or PRP of the ovary is one of the recent advances in the treatment of women with poor ovarian reserve. The aging ovary can be rejuvenated by the growth factors in Platelet-rich plasma which helps in the regeneration of the damaged tissues.
Autologous PRP is derived from the patient’s whole blood and then centrifuged to remove the red blood cells.
Platelet-rich plasma is injected into the woman’s ovaries as it helps revive the ability of the ovaries to produce eggs in women with poor ovarian reserve.
Studies have shown that platelets rich plasma and infertility treatment of the ovaries helps women have a pregnancy with their own eggs.
PRP Of The Endometrium
The endometrium is one of the main factors in implantation and pregnancy. Pregnancy rates rise with growing endometrial thickness. Intrauterine infusion of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a new way that has been recommended for the treatment of thin endometrium.
The thin endometrium is relatively frequent in women with previous trauma of the uterus, women affected by Asherman’s syndrome, chronic infections like Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, inadequate endometrial blood flow, and patients with low estradiol values or excessive use of Clomiphene Citrate. PRP contains activating platelets that stimulate the action of cytokines and growth factors. Based on this evidence, we use a local intrauterine infusion of PRP procedure for IVF which improves endometrial growth and rate of implantation.
How is PRP prepared?
The most common source of PRP is the patient’s own blood. Additionally, using someone else’s blood for this treatment is an option.
- Step 1: A medical professional takes a sample of blood, just as they would typically collect tubes of blood, to begin the PRP procedure.
- Step 2: The blood is centrifuged, or placed in a machine that immediately spins, causing the unique components of blood to separate, for about fifteen minutes.
- Step 3: In preparation for injection, a lab technician gathers the plasma, which is devoid of cell components and rich in platelets.
