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 Chatham Borough, 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 Chatham Borough, 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:

CHATHAM, NJ -- The Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department recently dedicated three pieces of firefighting equipment in memory of deceased members of the department and a generous Chatham Township benefactor.
Fire truck Rescue 14 was dedicated to Edward P. Sagendorf Jr.; Engine 10 was dedicated in the memory of John R. Atchison and Brush Truck 13 was dedicated to 40-year Chatham Township resident Joan Wold Horak.
A ceremony for the dedications was led by Chatham Township Fire Chief Matthew Chase, President Richard Gentles and former chief Matthew Lemmons, along with members of the CTVFD, and presided over by Rev. Msgr. James Mahoney.
Rescue 14: The Sagendorf family has faithfully served Chatham Township for over 60 years, starting with Ed Sagendorf Jr. who joined the CTVFD in 1962 and was a member until he passed away in 2007.
Sagendorf was a primary driver of the first Rescue 14 which was acquired in 2001. Ed brought tremendous skills and commitment to the CTVFD, helping whenever and however he could to support the members and maintain the infrastructure of the department. Ed’s three son’s; Edward the 3rd, Robert, and Gary and his grandson Robert Jr. are all active members of the department.
When Engine 10 was blessed by Rev. Msgr. Mahoney in 2010 in conjunction with the then newly erected Station 2 on Southern Boulevard, it was never dedicated. It was with great pride that Engine 10 was dedicated in the memory of John R. Atchison. John, who was affectionately referred to as “grumpy”, joined the CTVFD in 1974 and served the department for 43 years until his passing in 2017.
From his service to our country in the Korean War, to driving a milk truck, a flatbed or wrecker for his son, and driving the first engine out of Station 2 for 40 years, John was a lifelong truck driver. John also brought his family into the department. His grandson, John J. Atchison, joined this department and is a now a career firefighter in Virginia.
Earlier this year, the CTVFD took delivery of a new brush truck. Brush Truck 13, which is critical to fighting off-road fires and rescues, was dedicated in honor of Joan Wold Horak. Horak, who was not affiliated with this department but donated very generously upon her passing in February 2020 at the age of 93.
Horak and her husband Emil lived in Chatham Township for 40 years. She was an accomplished musician having studied at The Juilliard School in NYC where she mastered the Tuba and Piano. She dedicated 30 years of service to Clara Maass Medical Center in Belleville, NJ, was a former member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Zion Lutheran Church in Clark, NJ and most recently, was a devoted member of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church.
Joan was an avid reader, a bird watcher, a gardener, and a true lover of nature. She also had the distinction of being a life member of the Sons of Norway joining in 1947. The new brush truck is fittingly dedicated in her memory.
Chief Chase and Gentles, concluded the ceremony by thanking all the members who risk their lives to help the community and their families who support them.

CHATHAM, NJ — Because the June 19 Juneteenth holiday falls on a Sunday this year, banks, federal offices and the post office in Chatham will be closed Monday in commemoration of the date in 1865 when word reached the last enslaved people in Texas that the Civil War had ended and they were free.
Chatham Borough is honoring the day on Friday instead of Monday. The Municipal Building is closed, Friday, June 17 in observance of Juneteenth.
Last year, President Joe Biden signed legislation making Juneteenth an official holiday, becoming the first new federal holiday since Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday was approved in 1983.
Juneteenth is oldest-known celebration of the end of slavery in the United States.
Some other businesses around town may also be closed; so if you're planning to stop by one of them, it's a good idea to call ahead to make sure the business is open.
Companies that are already looking seriously at diversity, equity and inclusion efforts may see adding Juneteenth as a paid holiday as "something tangible" that "recognizes the importance of that day," Julie Stich, a vice president of content at the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans, told NPR.
Nike said in an email statement to NPR that Juneteenth is a paid holiday for corporate, retail, manufacturing and distribution employees across the Nike, Converse and Jordan brands. Zillow is doing the same as part of its "ongoing commitment to racial equality," the company said in a statement.
Both Zillow and Nike are encouraging employees to reflect on the importance of the day while taking part in volunteering, activism and educational opportunities.
Among them, Target and Starbucks are open, but employees get time-and-a-half pay on Juneteenth, according to a list put together by Entrepreneur.
Tech companies Twitter and Square are giving employees the day off. Google and Amazon aren't, but they're encouraging employees to cancel meetings. Amazon is also offering "online learning opportunities" throughout the day.

CHATHAM, NJ — Members of the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department, joined by Rev. Msgr. James Mahoney, blessed and dedicated three pieces of life-saving equipment during a ceremony last week.
The department, which was founded in 1925, is entirely made up of volunteer members, including 25 active firefighters, junior firefighters and associate members who provide services on a daily basis.
The department has its headquarters on River Road and a second station on Southern Boulevard, and it responds to about 350 calls per year, both within Chatham Township and as mutual aid to departments in neighboring communities, officials said.
Rescue 14 was dedicated in honor to Edward P. Sagendorf Jr. The Sagendorf family has been serving Chatham Township for over 60 years, beginning with Ed, who joined the CTVFD in 1962 and remained a member until his death in 2007.
Sagendorf was a primary driver on the original Rescue 14, which was purchased in 2001. " Ed brought tremendous skills and commitment to the CTVFD, helping whenever and however he could to support the members and maintain the infrastructure of the department," said Richard Gentles, Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department President.
When Rev. Msgr. James Mahoney blessed Engine 10 alongside the newly constructed Station 2 on Southern Boulevard in 2010, it was never dedicated. Last week, Engine 10 was proudly dedicated in memory of John R. Atchison.
Atchison, nicknamed "grumpy," joined the CTVFD in 1974 and remained with the department for 43 years until his death in 2017.
Atchison was a lifelong truck driver, from serving his country in the Korean War to driving a milk truck, a flatbed or wrecker for his son, and driving the first engine out of Station 2 for 40 years, officials said.
