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:

When Kyle Anderson walked down the stairs and into the basement of the Lincoln School on Tuesday morning, his face lit up.
As a student at the middle school in Fairview, N.J., Anderson had honed his basketball skills on the small basement court underneath the Bergen County school. Now it was being renamed in his honor as Kyle Anderson Court.
“It probably takes me back to the beginning, the beginning stages of my career, being a student here, going through everyday life with these teachers and with my classmates and now to see 20 years later, that I’m able to be celebrated and commemorated and just lead the way for the kids after me, that means a lot to me,” Anderson, who is about to enter his 10th NBA season and his second with the Minnesota Timberwolves, told NJ Advance Media.
Anderson, 29, is nicknamed “SlowMo” because of his ability to play the game at a slower tempo that suits his pace and allows him to create for others. He was the No. 30 pick of the San Antonio Spurs in 2014 after two seasons at UCLA, which he helped lead to the Sweet 16 that year. He split his high school career between Paterson Catholic and St. Anthony’s, going 65-0 under Bob Hurley at the latter and leading the program to back-to-back Tournament of Champions titles. Hurley, the Naismith Hall of Fame coach who was in attendance Tuesday with his wife Chris, called him a “modern-day Magic Johnson” at the time.
Both Paterson Catholic and St. Anthony’s are now closed due to financial reasons, so the Lincoln School holds added meaning for Anderson.
“Oh for sure, definitely,” he said. “I don’t have any high school or anything like that. It’s special, it’s a special deal.”
All the students in the district sat in the sun on a warm day to greet and cheer for Anderson. One fan held a sign that read, “Welcome home, Kyle Anderson.”
“Today is a big day for Fairview, a hero is back in town,” said John Hogan, the Bergen County Clerk. “Kyle Anderson is back in Fairview.”
Anderson gives out turkeys to members of the community near the school each Thanksgiving, and also held a Celebrate Life day in 2022, a three-day basketball tournament and half-day clinic open to children .
The 6-foot-9 Anderson averaged 9.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists last season for the Timberwolves, who lost to the LeBron James and the Lakers in the Play-In Tournament. He holds career averages of 7.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists.
Anderson is one of three New Jersey natives on the Wolves, along with former St. Joe’s-Metuchen star Karl-Anthony Towns and former Roselle Catholic forward Naz Reid. The practice court at Kean University is also named after Towns’s late mother, Jacqueline.
“Yeah, it’s awesome, really,” Anderson said of his Jersey teammates. “I can relate to those guys, I’ve watched them growing up. But I really love our team in general, like our whole team. I’m really excited. We got a good young group of guys. I think we’re a little battle-tested, too, so this will be a special year for us.”
One of his teammates, guard Anthony Edwards, just competed with USA Basketball for the team that lost back-to-back games to Germany and Canada and finished fourth at the FIBA World Cup.
“It’s tough, those teams are really good,” Anderson said. “Some people think [American] NBA players are just going to wipe the floor with them, but that’s not the case. The talent is really good in Europe, those guys have been playing together for a long time, the Germany team, the Serbian team, so it’s not easy for the USA to go in there and win.”
As for his own goals heading into his free-agent season, Anderson said, “Just have a good year, have fun every day. I’m getting into year 10 so I just wanna make sure I enjoy this. It could be over like this, so this is the later half of my career so I just want to enjoy it.”
In terms of his impending free agency, he said, “I don’t really focus on that stuff, honestly. I just want to get better every day, play as well as I can and go from there. Everything will handle itself.”

HACKENSACK — A stretch of Anderson Street between Union Street and Pangborn Place will soon be known as “One Love Way” in recognition of the contributions of the city’s Jamaican and Caribbean community.
The city will rename the street Friday afternoon at an event in Anderson Park hosted by the Jamaican Organization of New Jersey, a Hackensack-based nonprofit that serves Bergen County’s large community of people with Jamaican roots.
“It’s very meaningful,” said Nahshon Bolton, president of the organization. “Coming to America and having a place such as Hackensack as a place to call home. People come apprehensive, not knowing what the future holds, but the resources here give them a place to start a business, raise a family and find out what the American Dream is all about.”
Bolton approached city officials in April with the idea to rename the street in honor of Caribbean Heritage Month in June.
Hackensack, home to nearly 1,900 people from Jamaica, has the fourth largest Jamaican population in the state, just behind Newark.
"Jamaican culture is recognized and celebrated for its art, music, food, and vibrant communities that have spread worldwide, including here in the melting pot that is Hackensack," Mayor John Labrosse said. "This street renaming stands as a testament to their heritage and presence in our community, and will forever remind us of the vital role they have played in shaping our city's past, present, and future."
The resolution passed by the City Council last month to rename the street notes Hackensack has “many successful Jamaican and Caribbean-owned businesses, adding to the diversity of this great city.”
At the event in Anderson Park from 5 to 8 p.m., Jamaican culture will be celebrated with classic reggae music played by a DJ and food and drinks from two local restaurants: Jerk'D on Essex Street and 14 Parish Caribbean Kitchen, a block down from the park.
The Rev. Gregory Jackson, a former senior pastor at Mount Olive Baptist Church, will receive an award, and a college scholarship will be given to a local student.
The new name “One Love Way,” was chosen because the popular Bob Marley song "One Love" has transcended Caribbean culture, Bolton said.
“That one saying has impacted many people all across the world,” he said. “It’s fitting because this event is about building unity across cultures and bringing together people from all walks of life.”

Eddie Howe declared himself “exhausted” and he had not been playing.
Newcastle United’s tour to the United States has been productive on and off the pitch — three games unbeaten, connecting or reconnecting to their supporters — but it has also been brutal; hot, humid and intense, rattling between three cities. And now? “I’ll probably have a very good sleep,” the head coach said. “And then I’ll be watching this game back.” Because of course he will.
Friday night’s 2-1 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion brought a positive, dramatic end to Newcastle’s participation in the Premier League’s Summer Series, but there has been a different feel to their summer camp this year. They have spread the gospel in fertile territory. They have sweated and worked, but there has been none of the quiet, focused, intimacy of Austria 12 months ago.
It has felt like a big deal. It has felt loud.
As their trip to Philadelphia, Atlanta and Harrison ends, here are The Athletic’s Notes from New Jersey.
Elliot Anderson is in the frame for Newcastle’s opening league match against Aston Villa, Howe said, and so he should be.
The 20-year-old midfielder has scored four goals in pre-season, including two against Brighton, and he and Lewis Miley, 17, have been the standout performers on the U.S. tour. The two young homegrown products were watched by Steve Harper, the club’s academy director, in the Red Bull Arena; suddenly it feels like a bit of a production line.
It also feels like a big season for Anderson, who supporters serenade as the “Geordie Maradona”. He has started six matches for Newcastle in all competitions and now looks ready. “He’s really developing and his confidence levels have improved,” Howe said. “The biggest tribute I can give to Elliot is his fitness levels. When we came back to training and did our testing he came through the fittest by some distance. So he obviously looked after himself in the summer.
“He was very committed to his personal programme and looks stronger, leaner and quicker. You don’t score goals like that in the last minute, with the strength of his legs and his upper body to go past an opponent, if you’re not super-fit. Especially in this heat. Those goals don’t come by accident; they come for a reason, and that’s down to him.
“He is in my thoughts for Villa. The team is never set. Someone asked me the other day if I’d picked my team already, but no way. There are still more games to come and you want players to not change your opinion, but force their way into your eyesight. Elliot has certainly done that.”
Miley has done the same.
He is tall and statuesque and unruffled; after playing a full match against Chelsea in Atlanta two days earlier, he was a substitute for Brighton and was introduced when Newcastle were labouring, allowing Matt Ritchie to move outside. He immediately brought a calmness to the team. “He came on and added a composure to our midfield,” Howe said. “He showed a real maturity to come into a difficult situation.” Astonishing, really.
The tailgate outside the stadium, 6pm. It is smaller than in Philly, but there are beers and potato chips, songs and laughter. Peter from Verona, New Jersey, is here with his boys Conor and Schuyler. He had been at the last game, too (we met and chatted on the plane back north). “We were always planning on coming to this match because we live 20 minutes away, but my wife and children allowed me on a whim to fly down to Atlanta,” he says.
He described how it has been to see Newcastle, his team, up close and personal. “I honestly felt like I was struck by lightning, in the best of ways,” he said.
New fans, old fans, fans by birth, fans by choice, fans full stop; these meetings and mingling have been memorable.
The same old question; why Newcastle?
“I started coaching soccer and decided I had to pick a club,” Peter said. “I’m originally from Philly and a big Philly sports fan, which means I’m full of self-loathing, so I did a bunch of research and honestly felt like Newcastle found me. They were relegated a couple of years later. I was just blown away by the culture and the history, the history of the club and the region and here we are, 17 years later.”
“It’s been surreal,” said Peter. “There’s hope. It’s obviously like a line of demarcation for the club but there’s something about the transition that has also felt authentically Newcastle. I’m not from there, but that’s just my understanding as a fan.
The caveat is unnecessary. Not from Newcastle but part of Newcastle, as much as you or me or anyone else.
Howe has a quirk. He maps out his training sessions the night before deploying them, allowing him to be flexible and last-minute, to take into account specific fitness and circumstances and tailor-make his drills.
He has been able to do less of that in the U.S., where Newcastle’s involvement with the Premier League has meant a far more structured calendar, more demands on everybody’s time, player and community events to attend.
The benefits are exposure and name recognition, competitive matches against strong opponents and getting a toehold into a valuable market which has been dominated by the traditional big clubs. The long-term hope is that more people follow Peter’s example — minus the self-loathing — that Newcastle grow their global brand and, in turn, grow their revenue. The downsides are fatigue and a lack of intricacy on the practice pitches.
“You’re used to your rhythm and habits when you’re at home so it will be good to get back to those routines we’re used to,” Howe said. “The travelling is tiring, plane journeys and coach journeys, but I have to credit the players for dealing with that with no fuss. They’re well looked after and we’re very grateful for what we’re given, but then you have to turn up and perform and I think they have.
“There has been a lot of noise. It’s the polar opposite to Austria last summer, which was very quiet. We could control things that we did a lot more there and here we have been following a schedule where we don’t really have a choice of what we do. But there are pros and cons. The games this year have been a big test for us and I think that will then speed up our ability to perform early season.
“We are going to have to start fast looking at our fixture list.
“The camp been really good for us. The facilities were high-class, the opposition has been high-class. The support, the organisation — everything — has been brilliant. The players have really committed to everything we’ve asked them to do and we go back united and fitter and now we’ve got a key two-week period leading up to our first game to improve on all areas.
“There will be a lot of training now. We haven’t done much training for the last four or five days so it will be good to get back iron out a few things.”
Another signing or two would not go amiss.
While Newcastle’s results have been decent in the U.S., their squad has been stretched, highlighting a lack of depth and pace in defence. Fabian Schar, the Switzerland centre-half, has had a scan on the hamstring he irritated against Chelsea in Atlanta and, while the results have showed no lasting damage, he is expected to miss a few days of training.
For stretches in the 2-1 win over Brighton they struggled to gain and keep possession and found it difficult to escape their opponents’ aggressive press. These games can be a mirage, good or bad, but there have been elements of toil in all of them and they still have work to do in the transfer market, which should become less angsty now that the paperwork for Allan Saint-Maximin’s $30million (£23.4m) move to Al Ahli has been completed.
Howe’s ideal scenario is to have two teams of equal quality at his disposal, but Newcastle remain some way short of it.
“We haven’t had that because we are missing some very important players like Joe Willock and Sean Longstaff so, no, we feel we need a bit more strength and we are working hard to get that,” Howe said. “Things never come easy so we are prepared to be patient.”
But first, a bit of shut-eye.

WEST DEPTFORD, N.J. (CBS) -- Two youth baseball players out of New Jersey are bringing a little bit of luck to the Philadelphia Phillies' playoff run thanks to a homemade bracelet they sent to superstar Bryce Harper.
The Anderson brothers from West Deptford Township started making rubber band bracelets this summer.
One of their favorite kinds to make is to represent the Phillies with red, white and blue.
Last month, the brothers sent their favorite player, Harper, a special bracelet just for him -- there's a pop of green in there for the Phillie Phanatic.
Not long after, the family saw Harper wear the bracelet during one of the Phillies' series against the New York Mets. Harper has been wearing the bracelet ever since.
"He's the best player ever," Jayce Anderson said, "and I hope they win the World Series with him."
"You are my favorite baseball player," Wyatt Anderson said, "and I hope you keep your hitting streak up."
In the package, the boys also sent their autographed baseball cards and a note wishing Harper luck during Red October.
Dave Anderson, the boys' dad, didn't expect Harper to wear the bracelet.
"It gives me chills right now just thinking about it," Dave Anderson said. "It's just very emotional because like we just wanted to get Bryce the bracelet, we didn't really even expect him to wear it."
Despite getting requests to make and sell the Harper special, the Anderson boys aren't budging. The bracelet is for their favorite player and their favorite player only.
"I'm not allowed to have the Bryce special edition," Dave Anderson said.
Homemade bracelets and necklaces seem to be a theme among this year's Phillies team.
José Alvarado began making beaded necklaces during the regular season when he was on the injured list with left elbow inflammation, and the beaded necklaces quickly became a favorite among his teammates. Several Phillies were seen wearing them throughout the season.
In July, one Phillies fan even traded a homemade necklace of her own with Alvarado.
April Bremme was able to get Alvarado's attention during a Phillies game against the St. Louis Cardinals. Bremme had a sign that read, "Alvarado, your beads look good on you but mine will look better! Lets [sic] trade!?"
Alvarado saw the sign and then made the trade with Bremme.
Nikki DeMentri is a general assignment reporter with CBS Philadelphia. The Central New Jersey native is thrilled she is sharing the stories of where she grew up.
