How PRP Therapy Can Revive a Man’s Sexual Health

Sex is good for you. No, really. While this blog is directed to men, regular sexual activity can have positive benefits for both men and women. On the mental health side, the endorphins released during sex can improve mood, decrease anxiety, and stave off depression

On the physiological side, sex burns calories, and the oxytocin released during orgasms can relieve aches and pains. All in all, regular safe sex can improve your overall well-being.

However, despite the benefits of sex, you may find that your sex life and confidence are starting to dip. A lot of factors, from erectile dysfunction to size anxiety, can impact sexual desire and performance. If this sounds familiar, there’s hope.

As it turns out, one of the best solutions for reinvigorating your sexual health might be found in your own blood. In this blog, the health experts at Dolce Vida Med Spa explain what platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is and how it may be able to help you get your sex life back.

What is PRP therapy?

Your blood consists of a number of elements, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Platelets play a key role in your blood’s ability to aid in recovery. Platelets contain growth factors, which help trigger cell proliferation, speed healing, and stimulate tissue regeneration. 

With PRP therapy, platelets are harvested from your blood, concentrated, and then injected into areas to speed healing and rejuvenation. Platelet-rich plasma therapy, which can also help get platelets to areas that may not have good blood flow, has been used to treat a variety of issues, such as tendon, ligament, muscle, and joint injuries.

What happens during PRP therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma therapy isn’t complicated. First, some blood is drawn. Then the blood is placed in a centrifuge, where the platelets are separated from the rest of your blood's components. Then the platelet serum is injected into your penis.

Do know that the treatment is quick and virtually pain-free. This is because the needle is thin, and a numbing cream is used. And because the PRP is from your own blood, there’s little to no risk of complications.

What are the benefits of PRP therapy?

Once the platelets are injected, they go to work immediately to help bring health and vitality back to your penis and sexual health. Some of the benefits of PRP therapy include:

Platelet-rich plasma therapy has also been used to treat premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction.
