The most common reason for menopause is the natural decline in a female's reproductive hormones. However, menopause can also result from the following situations:
Oophorectomy: This surgery, which removes a woman's ovaries, causes immediate menopause. Symptoms and signs of menopause in this situation can be severe, as the hormonal changes happen abruptly.
Chemotherapy: Cancer treatments like chemotherapy can induce menopause quickly, causing symptoms to appear shortly after or even during treatment.
Ovarian Insufficiency: Also called premature ovarian failure, this condition is essentially premature menopause. It happens when a woman's ovaries quit functioning before the age of 40 and can stem from genetic factors and disease. Only 1% of women suffer from premature menopause, but HRT can help protect the heart, brain, and bones.
If you're a woman going through menopause and find that you have become increasingly depressed, you're not alone. It's estimated that 15% of women experience depression to some degree while going through menopause. What many women don't know is that depression can start during perimenopause, or the years leading up to menopause.
Depression can be hard to diagnose, especially during perimenopause and menopause. However, if you notice the following signs, it might be time to speak with a physician:
Remember, if you're experiencing depression, you're not weak or broken - you're going through a very regular emotional experience. The good news is that with proper treatment from your doctor, depression isn't a death sentence. And with HRT and anti-aging treatment for women, depression could be the catalyst you need to enjoy a new lease on life.
Hot flashes - they're one of the most well-known symptoms of menopause. Hot flashes are intense, sudden feelings of heat across a woman's upper body. Some last second, while others last minutes, making them incredibly inconvenient and uncomfortable for most women.
Symptoms of hot flashes include:
Typically, hot flashes are caused by a lack of estrogen. Low estrogen levels negatively affect a woman's hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls body temperature and appetite. Low estrogen levels cause the hypothalamus to incorrectly assume the body is too hot, dilating blood vessels to increase blood flow. Luckily, most women don't have to settle for the uncomfortable feelings that hot flashes cause. HRT treatments for women often stabilize hormones, lessening the effects of hot flashes and menopause in general.
Mood swings are common occurrences for most people - quick shifts from happy to angry and back again, triggered by a specific event. And while many people experience mood swings, they are particularly common for women going through menopause. That's because, during menopause, the female's hormones are often imbalanced. Hormone imbalances and mood swings go hand-in-hand, resulting in frequent mood changes and even symptoms like insomnia.
The rate of production of estrogen, a hormone that fluctuates during menopause, largely determines the rate of production the hormone serotonin, which regulates mood, causing mood swings.
Luckily, HRT and anti-aging treatments in Anderson, NJ for women work wonders for mood swings by regulating hormone levels like estrogen. With normal hormone levels, women around the world are now learning that they don't have to settle for mood swings during menopause.
Staying fit and healthy is hard for anyone living in modern America. However, for women with hormone imbalances during perimenopause or menopause, weight gain is even more serious. Luckily, HRT treatments for women coupled with a physician-led diet can help keep weight in check. But which hormones need to be regulated?
Lowered sexual desire - three words most men and women hate to hear. Unfortunately, for many women in perimenopausal and menopausal states, it's just a reality of life. Thankfully, today, HRT and anti-aging treatments Anderson, NJ can help women maintain a normal, healthy sex drive. But what causes low libido in women, especially as they get older?
The hormones responsible for low libido in women are progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone.
Progesterone production decreases during perimenopause, causing low sex drive in women. Lower progesterone production can also cause chronic fatigue, weight gain, and other symptoms. On the other hand, lower estrogen levels during menopause lead to vaginal dryness and even vaginal atrophy or loss of muscle tension.
Lastly, testosterone plays a role in lowered libido. And while testosterone is often grouped as a male hormone, it contributes to important health and regulatory functionality in women. A woman's testosterone serves to heighten sexual responses and enhances orgasms. When the ovaries are unable to produce sufficient levels of testosterone, it often results in a lowered sex drive.
Often uncomfortable and even painful, vaginal dryness is a serious problem for sexually active women. However, like hair loss in males, vaginal dryness is very common - almost 50% of women suffer from it during menopause.
Getting older is just a part of life, but that doesn't mean you have to settle for the side effects. HRT and anti-aging treatments for women correct vaginal dryness by re-balancing estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. When supplemented with diet and healthy living, your vagina's secretions are normalized, causing discomfort to recede.
Uterine fibroids - they're perhaps the least-known symptom of menopause and hormone imbalances in women. That's because these growths on the uterus are often symptom-free. Unfortunately, these growths can be cancerous, presenting a danger for women as they age.
Many women will have fibroids at some point. Because they're symptomless, they're usually found during routine doctor exams. Some women only get one or two, while others may have large clusters of fibroids. Because fibroids are usually caused by hormone imbalances, hysterectomies have been used as a solution, forcing women into early menopause.
Advances in HRT and anti-aging medicine for women give females a safer, non-surgical option without having to experience menopause early. At Global Life Rejuvenation, our expert physicians will implement a customized HRT program to stabilize your hormones and reduce the risk of cancerous fibroid growth.
Endometriosis symptoms are much like the effects of PMS, and include pelvic pain, fatigue, cramping, and bloating. While doctors aren't entirely sure what causes this painful, uncomfortable condition, most agree that hormones - particularly xenoestrogens - play a factor.
Endometriosis symptoms are much like the effects of PMS and include pelvic pain, fatigue, cramping, and bloating. While doctors aren't entirely sure what causes this painful, uncomfortable condition, most agree that hormones - particularly xenoestrogens - play a factor.
Xenoestrogen is a hormone that is very similar to estrogen. Too much xenoestrogen is thought to stimulate endometrial tissue growth. HRT for women helps balance these hormones and, when used with a custom nutrition program, can provide relief for women across the U.S.
Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.
Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.
Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.
Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.
One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies. Ipamorelin can boost a patient's overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life.
When there is an increased concentration of growth hormone by the pituitary gland, there are positive benefits to the body. Some benefits include:

It’s never too early to talk about the NFL Draft, which is a mere five months away.
But in 2023, both teams could be sitting at the bottom of the first round.
However the Philadelphia Eagles, despite having a league-best 8-1 record, could land a top-five pick thanks to general manager Howie Roseman, who traded for the New Orleans Saints’ 2023 first-round pick before the 2022 draft.
He has a strong lower body to hold his ground in the run game and great speed around the edge to apply pressure on the quarterback.

He is a well-built athlete who gets up to speed quickly.
A sound, consistent performer. He plays with balance and patience.

Kyle Anderson said he and Karl-Anthony Towns have known each other since he was about 10 years old and Towns was 8.
Both grew up in New Jersey and tracked the other's path to the NBA from the time they were kids.
"It's awesome," Anderson said. "We always watched each other from afar. I'm super proud of him. … We followed each other's high school careers, and now it's fun to link up in Minnesota. It's pretty dope."
Towns said he could see back then what Anderson brought on the court, but also how much he contributed to winning on every team he played. That's something the Wolves are hopeful Anderson will bring off the bench for them.
"I know how much of a winner he is. We grew up with each other," Towns said. " … I've seen him play the biggest games in New Jersey history ... I seen him come out with victories in those games when they said they may not be able to come with them. So I know what he brings to the table."
Anderson, who signed in the offseason after playing in Memphis, will be an important part of the Wolves' rotation this season, someone who can play in the frontcourt and bring a defensive presence at all times. He will likely be playing the four, or power forward, position. At times last season, the Grizzlies used him to limit Towns.
It was in their playoff series that Anderson noticed how much the Wolves were on an upswing and knew he might fit in well during his free agency. He signed a two-year deal worth $18 million.
"The fans were awesome and then the team played with tenacity, the team played hard," Anderson said. "You saw Minnesota's owners there front and center every game during the playoffs. That definitely stood out to me. Obviously at the time I was focused on trying to win a playoff series. Looking back at it, it was just like wow, Minnesota was all in."
The Wolves will be looking to play multiple defensive coverages this season whether Rudy Gobert is on or off the floor. Anderson said that is something only a few teams can pull off effectively. Anderson said everyone's responsibilities may differ depending on whether Gobert is on the floor.
Anderson will try to use his experience and communication skills to help keep everyone on the same page in those situations.
"That's what good teams can do," Anderson said. "They're able to adjust on the fly, all be able to be on the same page. They're able to talk about a game plan, whether that's both coverages, one coverage or two coverage. They're able to go out and execute it. If we want to be the team we say we want to be, we have to be able to go get that done."
The Wolves before the game waived Eric Paschall, who was on a two-way contract. Paschall appeared in one preseason game and was limited by an Achilles' injury, which played into the Wolves' decision to waive him.
"He wasn't really able to kind of show us what he could do in camp," coach Chris Finch said. "It was unfortunate because we were very excited about the opportunity to bring him in in the summertime, but we do appreciate his efforts nonetheless."
Paschall spoke at media day about how he thought about giving up basketball this summer and mental health obstacles he faced in dealing with that decision before signing with the Wolves.
He has averaged 9.8 points per game in his three-year career.
Guard Jordan McLaughlin was in the lineup after missing two preseason games because of a shoulder injury.
"Shoulder was giving me a little bit of issues, but feel like I'm ready to go," McLaughlin said after practice Tuesday. "A good couple days of practice leading into the season opener."

It came as a shock in April when the Eagles decided to execute a major trade with the New Orleans Saints, a deal that sent one of their three first-round picks to the New Orleans Saints in exchange for several picks, including a 2023 first-round selection.
Even with a 6-0 record and the distinction of being the only undefeated team in the league, the Eagles suddenly find themselves seven weeks into the season in a very good position to pick very high next year.
Heading into Week 8, the Saints have a 2-5 record and are tied for last place in the NFC South with the Carolina Panthers. The Saints have been dealing with several injuries, including at the quarterback position, with starter Jameis Winston sidelined for most of the season with a back and foot injuries. With Winston out, Andy Dalton has taken the reins of the Saints offense, but New Orleans still has not found a way to have success consistently, leading to the five early losses.
If the season were to end today, the Eagles would have the fourth overall pick in the draft, along with their own selection. If the Saints continue to lose, it will give the Eagles a chance to select a highly impactful player for a team that will have to retool with 11 of their 22 starters scheduled to become free agents.
With quarterback Jalen Hurts cementing himself as the franchise quarterback, the Eagles can focus on several other positions to address instead of taking a player such as Bryce Young from Alabama and C.J. Stroud from Ohio State.
Here are three players to keep an eye on as the college season goes on who would be good fits for the Eagles:
The Eagles have looked to the SEC in the first round in recent years, taking wide receiver DeVonta Smith out of Alabama in 2021 and defensive tackle Jordan Davis out of Georgia in this year’s draft. Given their track record, Anderson could be high on their list.
Through six games this season, Anderson has six sacks, 20 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, 10 quarterback hurries, and a blocked field goal. Anderson’s outlook on the game as a defensive player is something you want to see from an edge rusher. Here is a quote from Anderson before Alabama’s game against Arkansas via Bama Insider.
“I tell people all the time, the audacity for the other team to even step on the field is disrespectful to me,” Anderson Jr. said in September. “I tell people that all the time. People ask me what motivates me. I say it’s the audacity for the fans to show up and for the other team to step on the field and play with us. That’s the little thing in my head that I go through.”
As a 6-foot, 4-inch, 243-pound edge rusher, Anderson is quick off the ball and has shown a couple of moves that have allowed him to get his high sack total. Anderson also has the athleticism to get back into coverage, something the Eagles have done with their edge rushers when they bring pressure from other areas. With teams potentially taking quarterbacks with the first three picks, there is a chance he could be there at either three or four.
Want to bet on the NFL?
Like Anderson, Murphy can be disruptive as a pass rusher. This season, he has 5.5 sacks, 26 tackles, nine tackles for loss, and a forced fumble.
Murphy is bigger than Anderson (6-foot, 5-inches, 275-pounds) and could be used not only on the edge on a four-man front but bump down into a defensive tackle spot in five-man defensive line packages if the Eagles want to roll up another linebacker on the edge, allowing them to get some quickness against a guard.
Murphy also gets his hands and arms into passing lanes to deflect passes, which annoys quarterbacks when they shuffle in the pocket to find a lane to see downfield before throwing.
The Eagles have Zech McPhearson waiting in the wings if the team cannot re-sign James Bradberry after the season. However, the team could decide to get a cornerback in the draft, placing Smith on the board. Smith has six interceptions in his college career, one of which is from this season.
Something that Smith looks like he plays well off receivers and can put his foot in the ground and accelerate to break up passes thrown his way. Smith looks to be the top cornerback prospect that will enter the draft and could be available in the later part of the top 10. If that happens, the Eagles could trade back, pick up more picks, and still get a player who would fit what they do in the secondary.
