Ideal Candidates for Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy

Good news for women between the ages of 35 and 42 wanting to have a baby! A new and innovative fertility treatment – Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy – may be able to wake up and coax your nonfunctioning ovaries into producing eggs viable for fertilization. Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy will not make your ovaries younger – but – it can help a mature woman conceive a pregnancy naturally. If a natural conception fails to occur, you may be able to conceive through the help of other fertility treatments, such as IUI or IVF.

Ideal Candidates for Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy

There are many women who should consider Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy as an alternative to multiple failed IVF cycles.

  • Women who have failed multiple IVF treatments due to poor quality eggs
  • Women who want to conceive with their own eggs instead of donated eggs
  • Women diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Failure (POF)
  • Women diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI)
  • Women having a low egg reserve as reflected by an insufficient Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) level
  • Women diagnosed with unexplained infertility
  • Women who want to restore their natural sexual drive and hormonal balance

Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy

This procedure is performed by injecting a woman’s Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into her ovaries while she is under anesthesia. The PRP injection stimulates the growth and maturation of egg follicles. The ovaries are infused with proteins rich in growth factors and stem cell chemoattractants.

  • The patient’s ovaries are evaluated via a transvaginal sonogram to make sure they are accessible for the procedure
  • The patient’s blood is drawn to prepare her PRP
  • It takes about 20 minutes to produce PRP by spinning the patient’s blood in a centrifuge
  • The patient is prepared for procedure with the anesthesia Propofol via IV
  • The patient’s ovaries are injected with PRP to rejuvenate dormant follicles so as to yield viable eggs

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

It has been shown that Growth Factors derived from a woman’s blood platelets can regenerate ovarian tissue. By injecting PRP into a woman’s ovaries, new cellular growth can be generated to restore her fertility and hormonal function.

When the body experiences an injury – like a puncture to the ovary in order to inject PRP – Growth Factors are naturally produced by blood platelets and white blood cells. These Growth Factors naturally repair the body’s tissues by stimulating the development of new cells from stem cells to replace the damage to the injury.

Growth Factors

Growth Factors combine and generate the body to repair an injury.

  • Platelets
  • White blood cells
  • Blood clotting

These Growth Factors:

  • Stop bleeding to the injured area
  • Prevent infection to the injured area

These Growth Factors cause the formation of:

  • New tissue
  • New blood vessels
  • New nerves

Pregnancy Chances Post-Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy

There can be no guarantee that pregnancy will occur after the procedure. This is because Ovarian Rejuvenation is an innovative therapy attempting to reverse natural menopause and positively enhance the quality of existing eggs remaining in the ovaries.
