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 Bedminster, 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 Bedminster, 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:

BEDMINSTER – About 8,000 people a day are expected to attend the professional LIV Golf tournament at Trump National Golf Club during the last week of July.
Announced in March, the LIV Golf Invitational Series, based in Saudi Arabia, has become a controversial alternative to the existing professional golf tours in the United States and Europe.
Backed by a $2 billion infusion to support its launch, LIV has been touting exorbitant purses totaling $255 million and guaranteed money to lure players to enter its events.
But many of the top professionals on the PGA Tour, including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, have said they will not join the LIV series.
Unlike most professional tournaments, the LIV tournaments will have only three rounds (54 holes) and 48 players in 12 four-man teams over three days. The typical professional golf tournament is four rounds (72 holes) with 150 players, no teams, over four days.
The LIV tournament will be a shotgun start, meaning the groups will start on different holes instead of all on the first tee.
John Dolan, the event director, told the Bedminster Township Committee that a shotgun start allows for a "more compact" time frame for the play.
Dolan, who was the championship director for the U.S. Women's Open at Trump National in 2017, said that event attracted 20,000 over its tournament week.
Last year, after the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol, the United States Professional Golfers Association decided to move its championship, one of golf's four major championships, from Trump National to Tulsa.
Attendance at the tournament was expected to reach 30,000 to 40,000 a day.
Dolan said the tournament will be cooperating with the township, county and state in the operation of the tournament. He said the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office would establish a command center for security at the Lamington Road club.
Parking, he said, would be at Red Tail Farm, just off Interstate 78 at Rattlesnake Bridge Road, he said. Spectators would then walk to the golf course.
He said Cowperthwaite Road, which runs through the club, would be closed to the public from July 5 to Aug. 5.
Ticket packages ranging from $75 to $10,965 are available for the tournament.
Daily grounds tickets for each of the tournament's three rounds are $75. Discounts of 25% are available for youths, students, teachers, medical personnel and first responders. Military personnel and one guest will be admitted for free.
At the high end of the ticket options is the Club 54 Premium Package for $10,695. Hotel accommodations at Delta Hotels Basking Ridge can be added for $885.
The Club 54 Premium Package includes a front row seat at the trophy presentation, a question-and-answer session with LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman, a question-and-answer session with one of the 48 players, reserved seating at three different greens on the 18-hole course, access to a "gifting suite," access to Club 54, a venue with dining and an open bar, permission to walk inside the ropes for nine holes and a concierge to escort you from the club entrance to Club 54.
The LIV series will kick off in London on June 9-11, then move to Portland before coming to New Jersey. The tour will then go to Boston, Chicago, Bangkok and Saudi Arabia before ending at Trump National Doral in Miami.

LIV Golf Portland featured the debuts of Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau, among others. Similarly, LIV Golf Bedminster will feature the debuts of Jason Kokrak and Henrik Stenson, among others.

Pancheros has earned a loyal following for redefining the standards of modern burritos by using fresh-pressed tortillas and perfectly-mixed ingredients with the help of BOB the Tool, a unique plastic spatula used to carefully mix ingredients together to create the perfect taste in every bite.
The brand’s pursuit to build the perfect burrito dates back to 1992, when Pancheros founder Rodney Anderson opened the doors to his first restaurant in downtown Iowa City, Iowa. Since then, the brand has grown into 12 states with 72 locations.
The beginning of Pancheros dates back to 1992 when Rodney Anderson opened the brand’s first restaurant in Iowa City, Iowa. Originally modeled after the Chicago taquerias that Anderson had visited often with his friends during his teenage years, the brand’s pursuit of constructing Burritos Better Built launched Pancheros into an evolution based on simplicity and fresh-pressed tortillas.
Amid its popularity, the brand has successfully grown from its roots and today a robust franchising program has led to nearly 72 locations across 12 states.
About Children’s Miracle Network
More than 10 million kids enter a children’s hospital across North America every year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $7 billion. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.

New Jersey broke a record for the highest gas prices ever on Sunday at $4.09 for a gallon of regular and prices continued increasing daily since then. But there are gas prices in the state that are much higher, leading drivers to wonder if they’re being gouged.
What could be the highest price in the state, $6.79 a gallon for regular, was reported at an Exxon station on Route 202-206 in Bedminister, by GasBuddy.com on Friday. The average price for a gallon of regular was $4.37 in the state, GasBuddy said.
How do you know when its price gouging?
Price gouging is hard to define, especially with gas prices changing daily, said Robert Sinclair, a AAA Northeast spokesman who analyses gas prices. An unofficial practice in the gasoline industry is zoning pricing, where stations in affluent areas, and some poor towns and off interstate highways, charge higher prices than the state average.
“It occurs when the price is 10% to 15% higher than the median price…above, it’s gouging,” he said. “People have a hard time defining it, even consumer authorities.”
Gas prices in New Jersey are not allowed to be changed more than once a day under state law, said Gema DeLasHeras, a state Attorney General’s office spokeswoman. The Division of Consumer Affairs is part of that office.
“While high prices alone may be a reflection of market forces rather than price gouging, whether any particular gas price increase violates any law enforced by the Division of Consumer Affairs is a fact-sensitive inquiry that depends on a number of individual circumstances,” she said.
The cost of gasoline fluctuates routinely based on a number of factors, including the market price per barrel of oil, which fell to $105 per barrel, down from a high of $123 per barrel on Tuesday, according to NASDAQ. Prices have been rising rapidly across New Jersey, the United States, and around the world since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, she said.
Consumers who suspect excessive price increases at the pump or any other form of consumer abuse, can file an online complaint with the Division by visiting its website or by calling 1-800-242-5846 to receive a complaint form by mail.
“Someone who sees a price that’s $2 above the median and you’d have to think it’s gouging,” Sinclair said. “They’d (gas station owners) say their expenses are high, it’s the cost of doing business and they have higher transportation costs.”
The last price gouging warning by the state was issued by the state Division of Consumer Affairs on Sept. 3, 2021 after Hurricane Ida, which included gas.
That warning referred to a state price gouging law prohibiting excessive price increases during a declared State of Emergency and for 30 days after it’s over. Under that law, an excessive price increase is considered any price exceeding 10% of the price the product or service was sold for prior to the State of Emergency.
Drivers who believe they’re the victim of price gouging can file a general complaint, on the state Division of Consumer Affairs website or by calling 1-800-242-5846 to receive a complaint form by mail, DeLasHeras said.
