Objective To evaluate the role of localized injection of autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in the treatment of female sexual dysfunction (FSD). Background FSD is defined as disorders of libido, arousal, orgasm, and sexual pain that lead to personal distress or interpersonal difficulties. Treatment of FSD is complicated by the lack of a single causative factor, limited proven treatment options, physician unfamiliarity with available treatments, overlap of different types of dysfunction, and limited availability of treatment. A safe nonsurgical, cost-effective procedure is the intravaginal and intraclitoral injection of PRP to treat this sexual dysfunction. Patients and methods This was a prospective study of 20 female individuals with FSD who underwent intravaginal and intraclitoral injection of PRP. Standardized female sexual function index was administrated before treatment and after treatment to measure the response of treatment. Results There were statistically high significant mean values of desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, and satisfaction after treatment (P < 0.001), which is highly significant. Conclusion PRP is an effective treatment of FSD. It is a minimally invasive procedure with very low side effects.
