Platelet-Rich Plasma Holds Keys to Sexual Pleasure for Women

We are 50 years removed from the beginning of the sexual revolution, the time during which adults of all ages were finding liberation from outdated cultural conditioning. As far as we’ve come since the 1960s, there is still work to do, especially in the area of women’s sexual pleasure. Until recently, many of the estimated 50 million women who have experienced sexual dysfunction of some sort have suffered silently. Likely, they did so because there were no options for resolving their frustrations.

Only recently have we begun to attend to the issues women face in the area of sexual pleasure. As we have, its safe to say that we may have also done a little bit of harm. In naming the common concerns that women bravely report to their physicians, the medical community has had no choice to but put names to these issues. More often than not, these names include the term “disorder.” Problems with sexual pleasure do not indicate that there is something wrong with a woman, as the word disorder may imply. Furthermore, it is important to know that, termed a disorder or not, there is help for the common problems that plague women; four, in particular.

These 4 Common Sexual Pleasure Problems include:

  • Hypoactive sexual desire disorder. Hypoactive means low. Hypoactive sexual desire disorder is another way of saying that a woman has very little desire for sex. She may not think about sex with a partner nor have a desire for self-pleasure.
  • Female sexual arousal disorder. This term describes the problem of desiring sex but having difficulty becoming or staying aroused. According to studies, approximately 5% of women experience this frustrating problem. That’s 1 in 20 women.
  • Female orgasmic disorder. Studies indicate that approximately 1 in 20 women are unable to reach orgasm. This happens regardless of desire to have sex and maintain arousal. A woman with female orgasmic disorder finds it difficult, if not impossible, to climax even with stimulation.
  • Even more women, up to 1 in 5, may experience painful sexual intercourse. In many cases, pain is related to inadequate lubrication. Contrary to common belief, arousal does not always stimulate adequate lubrication for a woman to have sex comfortably.

Resolving Sexual Pleasure Problems with Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a naturally derived substance that we get by drawing blood from the arm. The product has been extensively used over the past several years to stimulate tissue regeneration in injured areas of the body, such as the joints. More recently, PRP has become popular in aesthetic medicine. This is because platelets contain numerous growth factors, all of which act synergistically to increase vascularization, new tissue growth, and collagen remodeling in tissue. These growth factors do the same thing regardless of where they are injected. Depending on the area injected, PRP will also stimulate different responses.

When (painlessly) injected into the tissue around the clitoris and vaginal opening, PRP has been known to:

  • Increase the sensitivity of the clitoris and vaginal tissue
  • Increase the likelihood of orgasm
  • Improve vaginal lubrication, thus resolving painful intercourse
  • Increase sexual desire by enhancing pleasure

For sex to be satisfying, it must involve some degree of pleasure. To improve yours, contact our Manhattan office to learn more about PRP treatments.
