PRP FOR SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION AND BLADDER INCONTINENCE

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections are an effective treatment for sexual dysfunction and bladder incontinence, which can often be caused from damage to nerves, arteries, smooth muscles and fibrous tissues. This damage can be a result of various health conditions, diabetes, childbirth or age. 

 

PRP allows individuals with issues in sexual dysfunction and bladder incontinence to use their own blood to treat the problems naturally by stimulating stem cells to the area of concern. Numbing creams are applied prior to the procedure so that little or no discomfort is felt during the injection. The vaginal injections for women and the penile injections for men are made from PRP.  Once injected, platelet cells act as ‘first responders’, immediately traveling to any site in the body that needs repair. Once activated, they trigger a healing response by releasing growth and regeneration factors. This in turn causes a rapid increase in stem cells, which can then be transformed into various types of tissues that are needed for repair and rejuvenation. New blood and sensory cells are created and organ function is renewed and increased sensitivity is often experienced.  

Kristina Janicas is also able to provide a holistic treatment plan for those suffering from sexual dysfunction and bladder incontinence with thorough assessment and use of bioidentical hormone replacement.

For Women

Vaginal injections can improve the following conditions:

  • Urinary incontinence  (leakage of urine, inability to hold urine)

  • Sexual arousal disorder (difficulties in becoming aroused or maintaining arousal during sexual activity)

  • Sexual pain disorder (patients experience discomfort during vaginal contact and/or sexual stimulation)

  • Orgasmic disorder (recurrent difficulty achieving orgasm even after experiencing sexual arousal and stimulation)

  • Lichen Sclerosis of the Vulva

Benefits experienced with vaginal injections:

  • Improved or resolved urinary incontinence

  • Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation

  • Younger, smoother skin of the vulva (vaginal lips)

  • A tighter vaginal opening         

  • Stronger orgasm 

  • More frequent orgasm       

  • Increased sexual desire   

  • Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm

  • Decreased pain during intercourse 

For Men

Penile injections can help treat the following conditions:

  • Erectile Impotence: inability to sustain an erection

  • Inhibited Male Orgasm (ejaculatory impotence): inability to achieve orgasm inside the woman’s vagina, although he may achieve orgasm via other methods

  • Premature Ejaculation: ejaculation occurs before or immediately after entering the vagina

Benefits experienced with penile injections:

  • Increased size of penis

  • Straightening and strengthening of the penis

  • Heightened circulation within the penis for a healthier, stronger orgasm

  • Can be used as an adjunct to boost the effects of other therapies (i.e. Viagra, Cialis)

  • Increase in pleasure and sensation during intercourse

  • Can be used to treat erectile dysfunction resulting from medical conditions such as Peyronie’s disease and prostate cancer
