What Kinds of Sexual Health Treatments Are Available?
PRP and PRFM are supplemental injections designed to enhance sexual health. Injected directly into the genitals, they stimulate the growth of blood vessels, leading to increased blood flow to the penis or vulva, and as a result, provide greater sensitivity to the region. In women, this treatment can also help with urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, and pain during sex. In men, these supplements can treat Peyronie's disease by helping with penis curvature, as a healthy curvature is the result of healthy blood flow and healthy erectile tissue. Certain oral medications can accomplish the same results. Oral medications can also boost testosterone and other important body chemicals, increasing interest in sex. Often, though, sexual health issues are psychological, as well as physical. That's why it's important to consult with both a medical doctor and a licensed counselor to identify all possible causes for sexual dysfunction or lack of quality in your sexual life.
Sexual Health FAQ
How common is erectile dysfunction (ED)?
Recent surveys have estimated that at least 30 million men in America are affected by some level of ED.
How many women have sexual health issues?
Sexual health problems, including vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, lowered libido, lack of sensation, difficulty achieving orgasm, and more, affect 30 – 40% of women, according to the Cleveland Clinic.
Do PRP and PRFM treatments hurt?
For both women and men, PRP/PRFM treatments aren't generally painful and only include a small amount of discomfort. Before we begin, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to numb it and help keep you comfortable. The needles used to inject the serum are very small and fine, meaning they typically are less uncomfortable than regular-sized needles.
How quickly can you see results from PRP/PRFM treatments?
Many patients can see results within a week, but typically the results continue to improve over about 5 – 10 weeks, with optimal results usually achieved at around three months.
How long do the results from PRP and PRFM treatments last?
Results will be unique for each patient, but on average, most can expect their results to last up to 18 months before a maintenance treatment may be recommended.
Is PRP/PRFM therapy safe?
For the majority of patients who are in good overall health, yes, these treatments are generally considered very safe and effective. Because these treatments use the plasma from your blood, there is a lower risk of side effects or complications. During your consultation, Dr. Sanchez will examine you, review your medical history, and listen to your concerns to ensure PRP/PRFM therapy is right for you.
