What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection is a treatment procedure that has the potential to help patients in their fertility journey. Platelets are the cells in blood that are most often associated with helping blood clot to control bleeding.
How PRP Works
PRP is prepared by drawing the patient’s blood and centrifuging the sample to isolate the platelet rich plasma. This plasma is then activated and injected back into the ovaries under transvaginal ultrasound guidance.
How PRP may help you
Timing of PRP
PRP can be done at any time during the follicular phase, though your physician may recommend a specific time window depending on your case. PRP can technically be done at any point during the cycle, especially in Diminished Ovarian Reserve, peri-menopausal patients with irregular menses.
