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 Carlstadt, 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 Carlstadt, 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 growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits. Some of those benefits include:

"Best of" pizza lists aren't worth much when you consider some people's tastes. But meatballs? Now that's a completely different story.
Those who've tried his polpette weren't surprised when John Speciale and his PizzAmore Italian Kitchen in Bergen County captured a swingin' hot victory in the first-ever best meatballs competition sponsored by the Jersey Pizza Joints group on Facebook.
PizzAmore's meatballs "exceed the hype," Rutherford native Gary Grattagliano wrote. "Perfect ratio of breadcrumbs to meat and seasoned to perfection with an outstanding sauce on quality real Italian bread."
The judges agreed during Pizza Bowl 2 last weekend at Redds, in the shadow of nearby MetLife Stadium on Route 120, a couple miles down from Speciale's place in Carlstadt.
The honors bestowed by JPS mean a lot.
It was during the early days of the pandemic when Guy Madsen of Clifton launched Jersey Pizza Joints at his Shore house in Seaside Heights as a way to help mom-and-pop shops like Speciale's survive the lockdown.
In the process, the group itself skyrocketed to social media prominence by offering a more democratic, roots-based -- and reliable -- resource over self-promoting, for-profit publicity hounds who ignore certain regions of the state and arbitrarily pick and choose which businesses they want to highlight.
It didn't take long for the group cultivated by Madsen and two dozen or so of his friends to amass nearly 58,000 members -- and counting -- all of whom were polled for their favorite Garden State pizza parlors and meatball joints last fall.
Speciale was a boy when he began his career washing dishes for his father's business. He wasn't crazy about it, but he said it grounded him.
Speciale, who also operates a catering business and is known for generously contributing to various charities, says the quality of PizzAmore's meatballs comes from a single goal.
"I take pride in putting out a good dish," the athletic, white-haired pizzaiolo says.
That quality draws many to the easy pitstop just a block off Route 17. It also produced a landslide victory (don't call it an avalanche) at Pizza Bowl 2.
"Meatball Johnny" chants rose from the crowd as Speciale collected his trophy.
"I am very surprised to win," he said.
He was probably the only one.
PizzAmore Italian Kitchen at 323 Broad Street in Carlstadt is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day. (201) 939-1254

CARLSTADT, NJ — It’s no secret New Jerseyans take their pizza seriously.
Take one look at Gov. Murphy’s Twitter page, and you’ll see he is currently embroiled in a tongue-in-cheek social media battle with Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont over which state has the best slice.
Ask anyone on the Jersey Pizza Joints Facebook Page, which has amassed more than 50,000 members since it launched in 2020, and it will most likely be the most common agreement with Gov. Murphy, that Jersey has the best pizza. The founder and creator of the page, Guy Madsen, says behind every pizza is a hardworking family.
“It’s not just about pizza, it's about the people behind the pizza," Madsen said.
"If you think about it, Jersey is the Napa Valley of pizza. We are to pizza what Napa Valley is to wine, maybe Central Jersey would be more Sonoma Valley. But the body of work is, we just have the best pizza. If your pizza isn’t from Jersey it probably sucks," he added.
Madsen started the Facebook group at the start of the pandemic in March 2020. He left his home in North Jersey to spend time and quarantine at his beach house in South Seaside Park. It was soon after he realized that, with restaurants shutting down and with few deliveries, he was not just missing his favorite pizza joints, but also the connection with friends, neighbors, and the community.
“There’s a little Jersey attitude," Madsen says of the Facebook group.
"We’re pretty renowned for Jersey attitude but that being said, we moderate pretty aggressively. Anything political, people vanish. It’s not a political forum. Any disrespect or threats, we tend to suspend or whack, as we call it, any bad behavior," he said. "We try to make it a safe place for people to gather. To share their favorite pizza joint, and most of all their love of all things Jersey."
What initially started as a group of 25 quickly has grown to more than 54,000 members two years later.
“I don’t care what political persuasion you are from. We are very non-political. Everyone can unite around pizza. I just haven’t found a person yet who doesn’t like pizza," he said.
The page does more than tantalize taste buds with conversations and pictures of some of the best looking slices in the state. It also brings people together for a common cause.
This Saturday, February 5, Jersey Pizza Joints will be hosting its second annual Jersey Pizza Bowl at Redd’s Restaurant and Biergarten at the Meadowlands.
At the event, 32 pizza restaurants will compete and 220 judges will decide who gets to take home the trophy for the best pizza and meatballs in New Jersey. The sold-out event will also feature giveaways, live music, and some celebrity judges like actors Federico Castelluccio from "The Sopranos," and Joseph D'Onofrio from "Goodfellas" and "A Bronx Tale."
“Those people are recognizable, the real celebrities that day are the pizza joint owners. The people that bust their hump every day to keep us fed," Madsen said. "And if you think about it, during the pandemic, they really were essential workers. We didn’t want to leave our home, but we asked others to do that. So they not only put themselves at great risk for us, but they helped keep our community together with some sense of normalcy."
As we approach Super Bowl Sunday, Madsen also points out that The Pizza Bowl trophy will be the only trophy handed out in the Meadowlands.
"Eight years ago, the Super Bowl was played in the Meadowlands. The fact that both of our teams are less than good right now, we are the only bowl that will be played in the Meadowlands this February. It’s Pizza Bowl or bust," he said.
Madsen and his group wanted to honor first responders 20 years after the September 11 attacks, and were given an opportunity to do a pizza crawl in Seaside Heights. The group raised $5,500 for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
They’ll be raising money for the foundation once again Saturday, donating 20% of ticket sales from the Pizza Bowl.
They’re also dedicating the event to the memory of Jersey City Fire Department Capt. Mark Lee, who lost his life due to a 9/11-related illness.
"It’s the best charitable organization not only for our veterans, but our first responders that have been critically injured to the point where their quality of life isn’t there," Madsen said. "The more I’ve gotten to know them the more I’m humbled to be raising money for these good folks.”
"And Pizza is a uniting topic. It’s something we can all agree upon," he said.

New Jersey set a record for new COVID infections for a third straight day on Friday, announcing 15,630 additional confirmed cases as a late-year surge continued to wreak havoc ahead of Christmas.
The new cases eclipsed Thursday's record of 15,482, itself a big jump over Wednesday's 9,711, according to state Department of Health data.
Confirmed cases have skyrocketed this week as the highly contagious omicron variant raced through the population and residents rushed to get tested ahead of travel plans and holiday gatherings. Many spent the week rambling through long lines and high waiting times at testing sites around New Jersey.
Reported hospitalizations also rose on Friday, to 2,366. That was still a far cry from the height of the pandemic in the spring of 2020 when admissions surpassed 8,000 a day and hundreds were dying. Twenty-seven COVID deaths were reported on Friday.
While case numbers are climbing, comparisons are tricky as testing options were more limited earlier in the pandemic. It's also unclear how much omicron is driving the latest increase, since state data on particular variants typically lags weeks behind the daily case numbers.
Whatever the cause, ripples of the surge could be felt across the state. Dozens of flights were delayed and canceled at Newark Liberty International Airport on Friday, as labor shortages due to increased infections compounded weather problems for airlines.
More than 2,500 commercial flights were canceled Christmas Day, according to FlightAware. A large share of the flights, more than 1,000, were canceled by Chinese airlines. About 300 were canceled by Delta, 250 by United and another 125 by JetBlue, the flight tracking website reported.
Another nearly 5,000 flights in the U.S. were delayed.
Christmas Day is one of the lightest travel days of the holiday travel rush. JetBlue is also having issues: 72 Christmas Eve flights were canceled, or 7% of its scheduled flights.
Delta said late Friday morning that it expects the cancellations to continue into Sunday, a busy travel day ahead of the new work week.
In Morristown and Newark, officials announced indoor masking and vaccination requirements to try to limit the spread. Meanwhile, RWJ Barnabas, one of the largest healthcare systems in the state, said it will limit patient visitors in its hospitals and other medical facilities starting Sunday.
As of Friday, the state had recorded more than 1.2 million cumulative COVID-19 cases and 25,888 confirmed deaths.
There have been 12,902,697 vaccination doses administered in the state. As a result, 6,177,157 people are fully vaccinated.

EAST RUTHERFORD — A proposed $55 million expansion of the Henry P. Becton Regional High School was soundly rejected by voters in the two-town district.
“While this was clearly a watershed moment and opportunity to transform our community and the future of education, we must accept the results,” said Superintendent Dario Sforza.
He said the school board has no plans to present the project again in the near future.
The 90,000-square-foot expansion would have included an addition to the main high school building to host six STEM industrial labs with a rooftop solar observatory.
Across the street, a new building named the Bec Tech Vocational & Trades Building would have allowed students to learn about trades such as electrical, masonry, plumbing, automotive, HVAC, green construction, welding, carpentry and woodwork.
But voters balked at the $55 million price tag, which would have cost the typical taxpayer $176.17 annually in East Rutherford and $171.80 in Carlstadt, school officials said. The unofficial vote totals in the referendum, as of Thursday, were 489 against and 349 for the expansion among East Rutherford voters and 473 against, 363 for in Carlstadt.
With the addition of students from Maywood, Becton’s enrollment is expected to grow from about 480 students in previous years to more than 900 when the transition is complete. Maywood pays more than $10,000 in tuition per student, and that contribution was expected to help foot the bill.
Without the expansion, there is still "plenty of room" for Maywood students, Sforza said.
“The Becton Evolution wasn’t proposed to accommodate the Maywood students,” he said.
“It's been an honor to have presented this transformative project to our three communities. I want to thank the Maywood Board of Education for their proposed contribution and all of our Carlstadt and East Rutherford voters who participated in this democratic process,” said Sforza.
About 18.9% of Carlstadt's registered voters cast ballots, and the figure was 12.6% in East Rutherford.
Elsewhere in Bergen County, voters on Tuesday rejected a $5.6 plan to upgrade fields in Midland Park, but approved an $8.8 million plan for a variety of improvements to Northern Highlands Regional High school. In Haworth, the unofficial vote tally was 434 in favor of $8.3 million in school improvements and 422 opposed, with the possibility of some mail-in ballots still to be counted.
