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 Township, 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 Township, 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:

CHATHAM, NJ — The School District of the Chathams has once again topped the list of best school districts in the state and was ranked among the top 15 school districts in New Jersey, according to Niche’s 2024 Best Schools and Districts.
The rankings released this week place the School District of the Chathams at 13th best in the state and 237 out of 10,932 in America.
Locally, Chatham ranks as the second-best school district in Morris County, beaten only by Mountain Lakes School District.
Chatham has 3,765 students and a 14:1 student-teacher ratio, according to Niche.com. According to state test scores, 59 percent of students are at least proficient in math and 73 percent in reading.
Niche gave the School District of the Chathams a letter grade of A+. Grades in specific categories were:
The Niche.com rankings, which have been out for the past nine years, compare K–12 schools and districts across the United States. The website combines input from current students, alumni and parents with hard data from sources including the U.S. Department of Education.
Niche also ranked 94,058 public schools and 30,809 private schools. The platform said its rankings were created to provide families with valuable information—both quantitative and qualitative—on schools in their area or in a neighborhood they’re not familiar with yet.
It also includes a list of the best high schools by state, which Patch highlighted on Tuesday.
The rankings differ from others that rely almost exclusively on test scores and academic performance in that they also include input from students, alumni and parents, as well as quantitative data from sources such as the U.S. Department of Education to evaluate teachers, resources and facilities.

CHATHAM, NJ — Chatham Township has been awarded $375K in state funds from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) as part of the Local Aid Infrastructure Fund.
The Chatham Township Pedestrian Safety and ADA Improvement Project aims to improve pedestrian safety by upgrading existing crosswalks. The grant will allow the township to continue work on the remaining crosswalks that are not already funded as part of a larger project.
"Safety and accessibility remain top priorities for Chatham Township. This Project demonstrates our continued commitment to ensuring that our streets and sidewalks are safe and accessible for everyone," Mayor Ashley Felice said.
The grant money was approved for 13 crosswalks on Fairmount Avenue between Runnymede Road and Nicholson Drive.
Additionally, two crosswalk upgrades are planned for the intersection of Mountainview Road and Meyersville Road, as well as two more for crossing River Road—one at each intersection with Henry Drive and Mountainside Drive.
Fairmount Avenue, Meyersville Road, and River Road are major thoroughfares in the township and see heavy traffic.
The project's main efforts include upgrading the crosswalk curb ramps to meet ADA standards, installing detectable warning surfaces, associated turning space, restriping of crosswalks, installing new concrete curbs, and restoring surrounding road, sidewalk and lawn areas.
"We are targeting completion of this project before Chatham Schools re-open in September. I commend our staff on their efforts to seek out grant funds to offset the rising costs of infrastructure improvements and minimizing the burden on taxpayers," Felice said.
Last year, township officials also announced that new safety improvements to a section of Shunpike Road will be added soon to help all Chatham Township school-aged children safely walk from the Lafayette and Washington Avenue Elementary schools.
That project is being funded by the New Jersey Safe Routes to School program, a federally funded reimbursement program that aims to enable and encourage children to walk and bike to school.
Construction work will be done during the day and will be done one block at a time, east to west. All roadways are also expected to remain open, and no road detours are currently planned.
The anticipated project timeline calls for construction likely to begin during the summer when school is not in session.

CHATHAM, NJ — The Chatham Township Food Truck and Music Festival, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday, has been canceled.
The event organizers announced the cancelation of the event this week, as forecasters are predicting stormy weather across New Jersey.
Meteorologists have predicted a dreary day around New Jersey on Saturday, with an approaching cold front knocking down temperatures and bringing showers, possibly with lightning and a few thunderstorms.
Tropical Storm Philippe could add moisture to the bands of heavy downpours predicted across parts of the Garden State, according to AccuWeather forecasters.
“By far, the most far-reaching impact from Philippe will be its drenching rainfall,” said AccuWeather on Friday.
The festival was meant to be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Colony Pool Club, located at 55 School Avenue, Chatham, and served as a benefit for Chatham Township PBA 170.
In general, this weekend is not expected to be a "washout," forecasters said on social media. But most residents can expect rain at some point.
Here is the weekend forecast:
Friday: A chance of showers. Cloudy, with a high near 72. Southeast wind 5 to 10 mph. The chance of precipitation is 40 percent. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch are possible.
Friday Night: Showers. Patchy fog after 11 p.m. Low around 62. Southeast wind around 5 mph. The chance of precipitation is 80 percent. New precipitation amounts to between a quarter and half of an inch.
Saturday: Showers and possibly a thunderstorm, mainly before 5 p.m., then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 5 p.m. High near 69. South wind 5 to 15 mph becoming northwest in the morning. The chance of precipitation is 90 percent. New rainfall amounts to between a quarter and half of an inch.
Saturday Night: A chance of showers, mainly before 11 p.m. Mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly clear, with a low around 48. Northwest wind around 15 mph. The chance of precipitation is 30 percent. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.
Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 59. West wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.

The township will host a Fall Fun Day event on Saturday from 12 to 2 p.m., promising a day filled with entertainment, arts and cuisine for all ages.
Kids and kids-at-heart can participate in a variety of arts and crafts activities, including free pumpkin painting. Attendees can also show off their artistic skills by painting a pumpkin and taking it home as a fall souvenir.
And after the arts and crafts, satisfy your appetites with a diverse selection of delicacies from local food trucks, providing something for everyone.
The grand reopening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for Shunpike Field's upgraded restroom facilities will take place at 1 p.m.
The Department of Public Works spearheaded the renovations, which now include heating, ensuring that the facilities are accessible and comfortable for users throughout the winter months.
"We're thrilled to showcase the improvements made to Shunpike Field's facilities and are confident that these upgrades will significantly enhance the visitor experience, especially during winter," said Mayor Ashley Felice. "We look forward to seeing the community come together for this festive occasion and celebrate the spirit of Chatham Township."
Last year, under Resolution 2022-125, the Chatham Township Committee also authorized the purchase of automated doors for the restrooms at both Shunpike and Nash Field.
Because of the improvements, every resident now has timed access to the existing restrooms, thanks to computerized controls. According to officials, this update assures that the restrooms are secure when the parks close for the evening.
The new door controls were also intended to reduce the workload of highly valued volunteer coaches. During sporting events, automation eliminates the distraction of unlocking and locking restroom doors.
Other access upgrades included improvements to the trail that connects Shunpike Field and the first overflow parking lot. The path was previously unpaved and frequently muddy, with ponded water after any rain event.
"The Family Fun Day at Shunpike Field is more than just an event; it's a testament to Chatham Township's commitment to community engagement and continuous improvement," township officials said.
The Fall Fun Day event is every resident's chance to meet other community members, participate in family-friendly activities, and see the newly refurbished facilities for themselves.

“All of the towns (and quaint cities) on this list have something special,” writes author Rose Marie Walano.
The article rates Chatham No. 8 in its Top 10 and says it "makes you feel like you've stepped into a Norman Rockwell painting. Its lantern-lined Main Street is charming, to say the least.
I wonder what Country Living would say if they knew the Zoning Board was seriously considering the approval of a convenience store - possibly open 24/7 right in the middle of the Downtown Historic District of our sweet small town. I think they’d be disappointed and I think there’s a lot of us that will be disappointed if the variance and plans are approved.
The location of this convenience store would be within the Exxon station which is situated on the corner of Main Street and Hillside Avenue. This location is at a very busy and congested intersection with a convoluted four-way traffic pattern and traffic lights. And in my opinion, the increase in traffic that the convenience store generates would be dangerous for pedestrians and vehicles alike.
Let’s resist the “progressive” approach that many of our New Jersey towns are embracing at present and keep our beautiful small town as close to “sweet” as we possibly can.
Mark your calendars and plan to be present at the following meetings at Borough Hall, 54 Fairmount Avenue.
Zoning Board meeting on August 23.
Historical Preservation Commission meeting on September 19.
Zoning Board meeting on September 27 (Final Remarks before Decision).
Voice your concerns and share your thoughts.
And…if you feel as I do, just say NO to giving our sweet small Chatham town that big urban feeling.
