When a female is born, her body contains all the eggs she will ever have. When she begins her menstrual cycle, one egg is released and shed with each period. When a woman reaches maturity and has low egg reserves, she may experience infertility. Ovarian rejuvenation is a treatment by which existing stem cells in the ovaries can be stimulated to transform the eggs into new, healthy eggs.
Women who experience menopause early or have poor-quality eggs can benefit from ovarian rejuvenation. This process stimulates your body into healing and increases your chances of having a healthy pregnancy.
Ovarian Rejuvenation Process
Older women who are having problems conceiving may benefit from ovarian rejuvenation. Women experiencing early menopause or premature menopause may also benefit from this treatment. The older a woman gets, the more likely it is that her eggs are of poorer quality. This can make having a healthy pregnancy difficult. Ovarian rejuvenation increases the opportunity for older women to become pregnant using their own eggs.
Stem cells are naturally occurring cells in the human body. They have the unique ability to transform into any type of human cell. This includes nerve and tissue cells. Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, has growth factors in it which can stimulate stem cells in the ovaries. PRP is derived from a small sample of your blood which is put in a centrifuge so the platelets, growth factors and white blood cells are separated.
The PRP with its growth factors and other components is injected directly into the ovaries. The infusion of PRP stimulates the ovaries’ stem cells. When this happens, the amount of healthy, viable eggs can be increased.
The PRP used in ovarian rejuvenation comes from your own body. This dramatically decreases the risks for infection or rejection by the body. If you are in good health and your examination shows your body is able to tolerate the rejuvenation procedure, this may be your answer for conceiving a child.
