Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) : What is it?
Growth factors or PRP are soluble protein substances found inside platelets. They stimulate other cells to form new tissues, heal and revitalize them, and regenerate bone.
Who is it for?
In the case of IVF or IVF with Egg Donation, this technique is particularly recommended for women who, during their previous treatments, did not succeed in obtaining an endometrium of optimal thickness. Indeed, the thickness of the endometrium is a key factor in embryo implantation and pregnancy.
How does this procedure work?
The timing of the PRP treatment is based on medical recommendations.
The procedure takes about one hour:
- Drawing blood from the patient (2 to 8ml).
- Separation of red blood cells from the serum and platelets by centrifugation and collection of the platelet concentrate.
- Introduction of the PRP into the uterus using a syringe. This quick and painless procedure is realized in a gynecological practice.
What are its effects?
Platelets, when injected into the endometrium, release growth factors and stem cells that produce tissue regeneration and allow healing of damaged tissue with minimal risk of infection or allergy.
Thanks to the active growth factors and cytokines released, this treatment improves the quality of the uterine mucous membrane (endometrium), thus promoting the implantation of embryos.
