What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women?
As you age, you may begin to notice a gradual decline in your overall health and wellness. Your memory may not be as strong, your hair may begin to thin, and your libido can decline. Many of these unwanted side effects are the result of naturally declining hormone levels in women. Specifically after menopause, female hormone levels drop significantly. What if we told you that these signs of aging can be significantly improved through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)? At Thiesen MD, our unique and tailored BHRT treatments are designed to boost declining hormone levels to achieve improvements in your mood, sexual performance, and mental acuity. Contact one of our locations in North Reading, MA, Bourne, MA, or Cranston, RI to book an appointment today.
What Is the BHRT Treatment Process?
After a detailed exam and discussion with Dr. Thiesen, your personalized hormone replacement therapy plan will be created. First, a blood sample and other diagnostic tests will be performed to assess which hormones are imbalanced, and determine the dosage that will benefit you the most. Treatment plans will vary depending on the form of BHRT that is selected.
At Thiesen MD, pellets are the preferred method of hormone replacement delivery. Over the years, Dr. Thiesen has worked with compounding pharmaceutical companies to produce the purest pellets possible. Small pellets, roughly the size of a grain of rice, are placed in fatty tissue of the buttocks or lower back area to deliver a dose of testosterone/estrogen.
The pellets release hormones slowly and consistently, mimicking the body's natural hormone production. Unlike traditional forms of synthetic hormone replacement therapy, pellet treatment provides a steady supply of hormones, eliminating the need for daily dosing or application. The procedure itself is well-tolerated and generally painless, with some individuals reporting only mild discomfort or bruising that quickly resolves. The treatment duration varies, but pellets typically last for three to six months, providing long-lasting relief and convenience.
What are the benefits of BHRT for women?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) offers a range of benefits that can improve your quality of life. Here are some key benefits of BHRT:
- Restored hormone balance
- Increased energy levels
- Enhanced mood and emotional well-being
- Improved cognitive function
- Better sleep quality
- Relief from menopause and perimenopause symptoms (hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and mood swings)
- Enhanced bone health
- Support for cardiovascular health
- Rejuvenated libido and sexual function
By using hormones that are structurally identical to those naturally produced by your body, BHRT is a natural approach to alleviating symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances. The benefits of BHRT can have a transformative impact, allowing you to live your life to the fullest with renewed energy, emotional well-being, and physical vitality.

Hormone Therapy for Women FAQs
What causes imbalanced hormones in women?
Hormonal imbalances in women can be caused by a variety of factors. These imbalances can result from natural life events such as menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. Additionally, certain medical conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or thyroid disorders can also lead to hormonal disturbances. Lifestyle factors, including stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, and inadequate sleep, can contribute to hormonal imbalances in women as well. At Thiesen MD, Dr. Larry Thiesen will conduct thorough evaluations and hormone testing to identify the root cause of the hormonal imbalance prior to providing hormone therapy.
How do I know if my hormones are unbalanced?
Hormonal imbalances can manifest in women in various ways and may present with a range of symptoms. Common signs of a hormonal imbalance in women include irregular or heavy periods, hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, fatigue, weight changes, hair loss, and difficulty sleeping. Additionally, issues with fertility, low libido, and changes in skin texture may also indicate hormonal fluctuations. If you are experiencing persistent and bothersome symptoms, we recommend scheduling a consultation at Thiesen MD for hormone replacement therapy.
Is hormone replacement therapy safe for women?
Hormone replacement therapy is generally considered safe and effective for women with the advantages outweighing the risks. At Thiesen MD, Dr. Larry Thiesen takes a personalized approach to hormone therapy. Before starting BHRT, thorough evaluations and hormone testing are conducted to assess your unique needs and determine if this treatment is appropriate for you. Regular follow-up appointments are also scheduled to monitor progress and adjust dosages as needed.
