Endometrial/Ovarian PRP

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) infusion in the endometrium and/or ovaries is a simple and effective treatment option to rejuvenate your fertility. The cost for endometrial PRP is EUR 1,200 and for transvaginal ovarian PRP is EUR 1,700. The process is as follows:

  • A sample of your peripheral blood is collected via a simple syringe.
  • The sample is placed in specialized vials and sent for centrifugation.
  • The sample undergoes lengthy centrifugation in an aseptic conditions process until a high enough concentration of platelets and growth factors is achieved.
  • The PRP is then collected and infused in the ovaries/endometrium:

For the endometrium: PRP infusion is facilitated with a small catheter, is painless, requires no anaesthesia and takes about 10-15 minutes. It is usually performed a few days before the embryo transfer. Studies have shown that endometrial PRP may lead to

  • Up to 60% higher implantation rate.
  • Up to 50% lower miscarriage rate.
  • Up to 2 times higher ongoing pregnancy rate.
  • Up to 80% higher delivery rate.*

For the ovaries: PRP infusion can be performed either transvaginally (similar to oocyte retrieval) or transabdominally (with laparoscopy). Studies have shown that ovarian PRP may lead to:

  • Higher antral follicle count.
  • Up to 60% lower cycle cancellation rate.
  • A higher number of cleavage stage embryos obtained.**

Acupuncture at Embryoclinic

Fertility Acupuncture

Acupuncture is recognized for enhancing fertility by reducing stress, improving endocrine function, and aiding in hormonal balance. It helps regulate menstrual cycles and increase endometrial receptivity in women, while also enhancing sperm quality in men. Additionally, when used alongside Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), acupuncture can enhance ovarian activity, mitigate hormonal therapy side effects, and increase the success rates of IVF treatments. Acupuncture is also available at EmbryoClinic.
