Here’s How PRP Therapy Can Change Your Sex Life

Aging impacts everyone. The body simply wears down after years of use. While most people spend time trying to offset the obvious signs of aging with aesthetic treatments, there are also internal components that age as well. In the same way that you may not be able to perform a sport or athletic feat as well as you once did, you may find that your sex life is not what it once was, either.

Sex can feel more like work than fun as you age. Men can go through issues with erectile dysfunction, and women can experience discomfort during sex or a lack of arousal. If this sounds familiar, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy may be able to help. 

If you’re dealing with frustrating sexual issues, Gene Meisenberg, MD, and his team at Columbus Anti-Aging Medicine and Aesthetic Surgery can give you a thorough evaluation and provide treatment.

Age and sex

According to the National Institute on Aging, a woman may notice several changes to her vagina as aging occurs. Her vagina can shorten and narrow, and the vaginal walls can become thinner and a little stiffer. Most women will have less vaginal lubrication, and it may take more time for the vagina to naturally lubricate itself. Put this all together, and penetrative sex may become painful or less desirable.

As men age, they may deal with erectile dysfunction, which is also called impotence. Erectile dysfunction can make it more difficult to achieve or maintain an erection. Furthermore, once erect, the penis may not be as firm or large as it used to be. And after an orgasm, an erection may dissipate more quickly, and it may take longer to become erect again.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy basics

Your blood accomplishes a lot as it flows through your body, and platelets do a lot of the heavy lifting. In addition to helping blood clot to seal a wound, platelets also act as growth factors to help your body repair and strengthen damaged tissue

During a PRP treatment, a small sample of your blood is taken. It’s then processed to separate out the platelets. This platelet serum is then injected directly into the penis or vagina. The growth factors in the plasma then help generate newer and younger tissue that is often stronger and more sensitive.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy for men

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is especially helpful for men suffering from erectile dysfunction. Studies have shown that the treatment may work well for men with prostate issues as well. Platelet-rich plasma therapy may produce the following results:

Platelet-rich plasma therapy for women

For women, the main benefit derived from PRP therapy comes from improved sensitivity. Colloquially known as the “O-Shot,” PRP injections may increase enjoyment levels from both vaginal and clitoral stimulation. Other benefits may include:
