Ovarian Rejuvenation

What is ovarian rejuvenation?

Ovarian rejuvenation is a treatment strategy that can benefit women with low egg reserves who are experiencing infertility. By injecting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) directly into your ovaries, your New York Fertility Institute provider can stimulate existing stem cells into transforming into new, healthy eggs.

Stem cells are found naturally in your body and have the unique ability to transform into any type of human cell, including nerve and tissue cells. When the growth factors in PRP stimulate stem cells in the ovaries, it can increase the amount of healthy, viable eggs you have.

This treatment can also help women conceive a pregnancy if they are older or are experiencing premature or naturally occurring menopause.

Why should I consider ovarian rejuvenation?

As a woman, you were born with a specific amount of eggs in your ovaries. This count continues to decline as you get older, resulting in less high-quality eggs needed to achieve a healthy pregnancy.

If you are struggling with infertility or wish to become pregnant at an older age, the New York Fertility Institute medical team may suggest ovarian rejuvenation.

What can I expect during ovarian rejuvenation?

Ovarian rejuvenation involves a two-step process. First, your New York Fertility Institute provider withdraws a sample of your blood. They isolate the PRP from other blood materials spinning it quickly in a centrifuge. This results in a high concentration of growth factors that your doctor injects into your ovaries.

The procedure takes less than an hour, and you receive sedation medication to keep you relaxed and comfortable. Following your treatment and a brief period of recovery, you can go home to rest.

Are there risks with ovarian rejuvenation?

Because the New York Fertility Institute medical team uses your blood for PRP injections, your risk for infection or rejection is very low. Your provider evaluates your overall health and ensures you can tolerate the rejuvenation procedure before moving forward.

One of the biggest benefits of ovarian rejuvenation is the increase in the likelihood you’ll be able to conceive a child using your eggs.

If you have a low egg reserve or have already reached menopause but want a baby, schedule a consultation at New York Fertility Institute today online or by calling the office.
