Let's talk about Sex
Research shows that only about 14% of women EVER talk to ANY of their healthcare providers about sex. With around 40% women suffering from a sexual disorder, why do only about 1 in 10 ever talk to their provider about sex?

According to Practice Bulletin in Obstetrics and Gynecology (April 2011), the reason may be that, with the exception of short-term hormone replacement, research has shown few proven treatment options for female sexual disorders. Both provider and patient would be discouraged by discussing a problem for which there is no proven solution, so the topic is avoided.

Women’s Top Four Sexual Pleasure Problems…

  1. Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (Low desire). Remember, that this is not counted a disorder unless it’s disrupting the woman’s life. Around 10% of women suffer with this problem. Important: Suffering with a sexual disorder does not simply make sex not fun. Better sex leads to more energy, more creativity, increased confidence, less depression, and improved overall health, healthy and more stable marriages and relationships.
  2. Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (usually but not always accompanies Sexual Desire Disorder). Women who suffer with this may want to have sex but have much difficulty finding the pleasure of arousal. The 5% incidence doesn’t sound like much until you think about it–that’s the same as 1 in 20!
  3. Female Orgasmic Disorder: Again around 1 in 20 (or 5%). Here women can become aroused but have much difficulty with orgasm. This can be so frustrating that sex becomes a frustration that they avoid.
  4. Dyspareunia (painful intercourse): This is a disorder in which  women suffer with real pain with sex (not from decreased lubrication or vaginal spasm). The incidence ranges from 1 in every 5 to 10 women!

Oh…but, now there’s an answer, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Vaginal Rejuvenation….
It is a nonsurgical, in-office procedure that uses a virtually painless injection of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) derived from the patient’s own blood. The PRP is injected into the tissues of the vaginal wall as well as the clitoral area. The aim of this procedure is to introduce growth factors that activate stem cells to develop into healthy mature cells which replace and rejuvenate the cells found in the area. In females, this procedure promotes healing leading to improved sensation and improved tissue quality. It may also increase the elasticity and tone of the area which may reduce stress urinary incontinence, increase sex drive and enhance sexual satisfaction in women.

Women usually enjoy the effects of the procedure almost immediately. Although each woman’s experience can be different, here’s a list of some results our patients have shared with us:

  • Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
  • Younger, smoother skin of the vulva (lips of the vagina)
  • A tighter vaginal opening
  • Stronger orgasm
  • More frequent orgasm
  • Increased sexual desire
  • Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
  • Decreased painful intercourse
  • Increased natural lubrication
  • Decreased urinary incontinence

While there is no magic shot that takes the place of all the other factors necessary for amazing sex (emotional, hormonal, relationship, general health), PRP for vaginal rejuvenation addresses certain physical issues that can have a profound effect.

***PRP has been used effectively for a variety of treatments for over 20 years. There are numerous procedures involving the injection of PRP into various parts of the body have been performed with no significant side effects or complications reported.
