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 Davie, FL 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 Davie, FL 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:

DAVIE, FLA. (WSVN) - Two days after a severe storm wreaked havoc across South Florida, some neighborhoods are still grappling with flooded streets, stalled cars, and soaked homes, prompting residents to search for answers.
Miami-Dade County remains waterlogged, with a neighborhood near Northeast 116th Street and 14th Avenue in North Miami still seeing ankle-deep water.
“When it starts flooding, it gets real crazy over here,” said area resident Kevin Jean-Baptiste.
“It’s too much,” said another resident.
Reports of cars submerged and towed away reveal the aftermath of the relentless rain and winds.
Speaking through a translator, a resident who identified herself as Esperanza said the situation is “horrible.” She said her children have not been able to go to school because of the standing water. She said the water is so dirty because of the garbage cans with bacteria and germs.
Jean-Baptiste said the flooding has caused plumbing problems.
“We can’t flush our toilet, take good showers or anything. It’s like really terrible right now,” he said.
Parts of Miami Gardens also face lingering flooding, with streets in the 2200 block of Northwest 170th Street still submerged. Picture sent in by a 7News viewer showed traffic barrels floating on the roadway.
Residents said that in some spots, the standing water is knee-deep.
Residents attribute the recurrent problem to drainage issues, expressing frustration and hoping for a swift resolution.
According to Miami-Dade County Public Works, one of the two pumps in Esperanza and Jean-Baptiste’s neighborhood failed Thursday morning, and crews are currently figuring out how to bring in more pumping power.
For Esperanza, that help can’t come soon enough.
“Bring people who can work on the pumps to get the water out. It’s not fair,” she said.
In Broward County, the situation is equally dire.
Despite considerable improvement in many flood zones over the past 24 hours, a neighborhood off Hiatus Road in Davie remains submerged, leaving residents frustrated.
“Very concerned. It’s only two days of rain and, as you can tell, it’s terrible,” said area resident Ingrid Korkkanem.
Korkkanem said she and her family are halfway through building their dream home, and she can barely come and go with all this standing water.
“I was hoping that they would do something by now, but not yet,” she said.
A homeowner who lives across the submerged street compared his property to an island surrounded by water.
“This is the fourth time this has happened,” he said.
He is unable to leave until the water goes down.
Korkkanem said the neighbors keep an eye on him.
“I think he has someone who comes and bring him supper. We always keep an eye on him,” she said.
The parking lot of a nearby Broward College campus remained flooded on Friday. Classes were canceled for a third consecutive day.
The aerial view from 7Skyforce showed flooded rural areas housing animals. A pasture that several farm animals call home now resembles a swamp. One camel, an animal that can go days without water, was seen wading across the flooded pasture.
The flooding remains a lingering and ongoing concern for residents.
“It’s just very scary and hard when you’re trying to just, you know,” said Korkkanem. “I mean, you work, you have to go to the store and things like that. It didn’t feel like a hurricane or a tropical storm, but it was windy and it was just steady, it didn’t stop raining.”
Despite sunny skies on Friday, parts of South Florida struggled to recover, highlighting the resilience needed to navigate the aftermath of the storm.
Back in North Miami, Jean-Baptiste got his scooter back after it was damaged by floodwaters. He’s hoping South Florida gets a much-needed break from the rain.
“‘Cause it’ll sprinkle for a couple of hours, and it’ll rise up,” he said. “It don’t matter, it just don’t matter. Once any type of rain comes, it starts flooding just like this, and it stays like this for a while.”
Miami-Dade Public Works officials did not give 7News a timeline when it comes to bringing relief to the North Miami neighborhood that is still dealing with flooded streets.

DAVIE, FLA. (WSVN) - A Davie mother said she has her 8-year-old daughter to thank for alerting about a fire that broke out in the kitchen of her townhome and filled the entire residence with smoke.
Melissa Cristo showed 7News the damage from the blaze that destroyed her kitchen on Sunday.
She said she is still figuring out her next steps.
“I don’t know what to do. I don’t know how to start to fix the situation,” she said. “I’m a single mom, and I don’t have money to move.”
But for now, Cristo is grateful to her daughter Catalina, who said she smelled smoke and knew exactly what to do.
“I was with my brother, and then I was looking for my mom, and then, when I found her, I’m like, ‘Wake up, there’s fire,'” said Catalina.
“My daughter saved my life,” said Cristo.
According to Davie Fire Rescue, the fire sparked in Cristo’s townhome, located along Southwest 67th Terrace, at around 6 a.m.
Cristo said she and her two children were upstairs sleeping when the fire started on the stove and quickly spread, melting her appliances and even ruining some of her children’s drawings.
When she saw the flames, Cristo said, she grabbed her children and ran for the front door.
“I didn’t know what happened at that time,” she said. “The smoke, it was really hard, so we just run outside and go outside.”
Cristo said she’s lived at the townhome for three years and doesn’t make much money working as a teacher’s assistant.
Although she doesn’t know how she will be able to make ends meet, she’s thankful for her daughter that no one is hurt, and they were all able to escape.
“She saved my life in a lot of ways, because I’m a better person for her and for my son, but yesterday she really saved our life,” she said.
The official cause of the fire remains under investigation.
Volunteers with the American Red Cross are assisting Cristo and her children. The family has started a GoFundMe page to help with expenses. If you would like to make a donation, click here.

DAVIE - A South Florida native whose parents moved here during World War II is making Miami proud.
Carol Clarkson knows how expensive groceries can be and that's why she puts her bargain hunting skills to use for a good cause.
"I like bargains," she said.
Clarkson can't pass up a good BOGO (buy one, get one) deal but for her, it's more like buy one, give one.
"Anyone can give a little bit, those who can give a lot should give more. I know in this economy there's a lot of people who need it," she said.
Clarkson scours supermarkets for the best deals on groceries, not to stock her own shelves but to help fill the ones at the Dorit and Ben J. Genet Cupboard in Davie. She donates hundreds of pounds of kosher groceries to the Goodman Jewish Family Services food pantry each month.
She tries to shop for items that aren't usually donated, like sodium free and sugar free options for those with restrictive diets.
"Paying full price you don't get very much. I find some excellent bargains. When I get nervous, I go shop for food instead of going to the mall. I go to grocery stores and pet food stores," said Clarkson.
"Carol is imperative to what we do here in the pantry. With the rising food costs, we are not able to raise enough money to buy the food for all the families we serve," said Ross Adel, with Goodman Jewish Family Services.
Adel, who is the Director of Operations at the Cupboard, lost his old job during the pandemic. He said it very well could have been him at the pantry in need of food for his family so that's why generosity like Clarkson's is so vital.
"Every little bit helps. Whether it's one can of food or boxes of food, don't throw anything away. One man's trash is another man's treasure." he said.
"Because I have personal income, I feel I have to share. God blessed me with the income and I feel it's important that people and animals that don't have such good fortune, share in it," said Clarkson.
She said her generosity is in her DNA, her family has been giving back to the community since they moved to Broward County in 1939. In addition to donating food, she's also known to make financial contributions whenever Goodman Jewish Family Services is in need.

Baywood Hotels broke ground on a hotel along Interstate 75 in Davie after obtaining a $22.93 million construction loan.
New York-based Popular Bank awarded the mortgage to Weston Hospitality and Royal Polo Hotel, both led by Amit N. Patel as director of Columbia, Maryland-based Baywood Hotels. It covers the 3.16-acre site on the south side of Southwest 14th Street/Indian Trace on west side of Interstate 75.
While the property is in Davie, it’s also near the gateway to Weston, one of the wealthiest cities in Broward County.
San Antonio-based DD&B Construction recently filed notice with the county that it started construction of a 147-room, five-story hotel there.
This will be a Home2 Suites by Hilton, said Larry Rojas, director of development for Baywood Hotels. The rooms will have wet bars and microwaves, and the hotel will allow pets. He anticipates construction will take 16 months.
Weston Hospitality purchased the vacant land for $4.6 million in 2021. In March, it sold a 55% interest in the property to affiliated company Royal Polo Hotel for $15.4 million.
Royal Polo Hotel sold a Hilton on South Beach for $28 million in September, so investing in the Davie project might help defer capital gains taxes.
