A low ovarian reserve is usually the cause of female infertility. In assisted reproduction, ovarian failure is an important determining factor for the success of the treatment, and normally leads to obtaining a smaller number of ovules and the need for several cycles of stimulation.
To alleviate it, at iGin we apply one of the latest advances in reproductive medicine: the use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for ovarian reactivation.
What is it?
Our blood has a platelet-rich plasma with the unique capacity of regenerating and repairing our own tissues. Today, in our laboratories we are able to obtain this compound from the patient’s blood, improve it and then inject it, reactivating her ovarian capacity before a treatment that requires follicular stimulation. This increases the number of mature eggs obtained in follicular puncture.
How is it done?
The process is simple. A blood extraction is carried out and the sample is immediately processed in the laboratory to increase the regenerative factors present in the plasma and concentrate them, thus obtaining a Plasma Rich in Platelets. Later, in the operating room, the intraovarian injection of this compound is performed. A very simple procedure that is performed under anesthesia.
The results are evident in a period of between one and three months, at which time a classic treatment with ovarian stimulation (IVF/ICSI, ROPA Method) could be performed to obtain the greatest number of ovules. Sometimes it may be necessary to repeat the technique.
It is a technique indicated for patients with low ovarian reserve and severe ovarian failure, especially up to 38 years of age. However, it will be the medical criteria that assess the convenience of carrying it out based on the chances of success in each particular case.
