Pelvic radiotherapy in women with cancer is a cause of sexual dysfunction with consequent alteration in their quality of life. Currently there is no adequate therapeutic method to solve it. Platelet-rich (PRP) plasma has been shown to have reparative capacity in tissues that have suffered damage and improves their functionality. We present a case where it was possible to improve the rates of sexual function and vaginal health with the application of PRP. The use of PRP in patients with genital sequelae after radiotherapy is a promising therapeutic method, which requires further studies with an adequate number of patients.
