What is vaginal PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a derivative of a patient’s own blood, which can promote expedient tissue regeneration and healing. PRP is used to treat a range of gynaecological conditions, including vaginal atrophy or dryness, prolapse, vulval lichen sclerosus, painful intercourse, urinary incontinence, and loss of libido.
The treatment works by taking a patient’s blood, like a normal blood test, but the plasma component is then isolated. The patient can be given a topical anaesthetic, which makes the treatment relatively more comfortable
What does PRP do for women with conditions like vaginal atrophy?
In genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), vaginal atrophy occurs as a result of less oestrogen, which leads to thinning and drying of the vaginal walls.
Many women who are approaching or in menopause suffer from symptoms like vaginal dryness, burning and/or itching of the vagina, pain or bleeding during intercourse, vaginal discharge, and spotting. Distressing urinary symptoms can also be present, such as urinary tract infections, burning and discomfort with urination, frequent urination and incontinence.
