The continuous search for additional methods that contribute to the success of IVF treatment brought the use of autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) to the forefront, as a therapy that was first used in the late 20th century in reconstructive medicine, then later in regenerative medicine and finally in infertility treatment. Nowadays, the use of PRP extend to attempts to improve endometrial receptivity, resolve repeated implantation failure (RIF), chronic endometritis (CE) and Asherman syndrome (AS). Furthermore, observational studies revealed that PRP intraovarian infusion could effectively restore ovarian functionality and hormonal profile. Studies conducted in this field differ in preparation, concertation of platelets used for therapy and many other aspects, so standardization of the method is urgently needed. In the first half of the course, theoretical background for PRP action and use will be presented, while in second half of course, the hands-on training with clear instructions for PRP preparation and standardization of the method will be performed. All the equipment needed for performance of the practical part of the course will be provided.
