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 Delaware, 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 Delaware, 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:

Back in 2018, Delaware government officials and business representatives proposed an initiative called Ready in 6. The name refers to six months, which is how long it should take for a business to take up shop and become profitable in the state.
Not 24 months, which is Delaware’s current track record.
An independent analysis conducted by professional services firm KPMG honed in on the permitting process which holds up approvals for much longer than neighboring states. Dilly-dallying on the permit process isn’t just an inconvenience — it means Delaware is missing out on key opportunities to drive economic growth.
The idea was championed by a roundtable determined to make the business permitting process faster and more nimble, with coalition members including the likes of the Delaware Business Roundtable, Delaware State Chamber of Commerce, Kent Economic Partnership, Sussex County Economic Development Action Team, New Castle County Chamber and more.
According to this 2018 plan, here’s what it would take to be ready in one-fourth of the time: better communication; more efficiency and less paperwork; and more efficient tracking and use of data.
Cozied up in living room chairs at October’s Developing Delaware 2022 hosted by the Delaware Chamber, Gov. John Carney asked how Ready in 6 has been going for the past four years. Panelists Robert Boehringer III, managing director at KPMG, and Lawrence Moretti, principal at LFM Corporate Location Services, got real: We just aren’t there yet.
1. Delaware needs to get on the radar.
There’s still work to be done in branding Delaware as a place to land. We’ve got the product, now we need speed and branding, they said. Boehringer said as companies reconsider their global supply chain, Delaware needs a statewide marketing strategy. Cities like Philadelphia and New York have spread out, and it should be a strong play for Delaware to grab some of those companies that are looking around the mid-Atlantic region for a different kind of locale to lay roots.
2. There’s a need for speed.
Thinking like a business, how can we get to revenue fast? When businesses look to locate in the Delaware region, they aren’t looking for 24 months of waiting on certain department approvals. Mark Anthony Brewing was cited as an example: During the pandemic, the company went to Columbia, South Carolina and broke ground in eight days, then got product out the door in 346 days. The investor expectation is that speed matters.
“Delaware needs to continue to get better because the competition isn’t slowing down,” Boehringer said.
3. We have to hone in on our target businesses.
The question is, what are the right industries and sectors to be targeting? Mid-sized manufacturers is the right space to be playing in with a higher ROI on these smaller sites, the panelists said. Smaller sites could also mean quicker turnaround times.
Moretti, with expertise in corporate site selection, points to Richmond, Virginia marketing itself as a middle office hub. Similarly, cities like Wilmington can brand themselves as a middle market fintech hub. Compared to Nashville, which is overextended and has companies fighting for talent, Delaware has the capability to be a real contender in a place to bring your biz if we can get our vision and marketing straight.
In sum: Stay mindful of the program and product we want here, maintain the vision for the state, and continue to push for efficiencies that help companies break ground.
On that last point, panelists said to consider: How are we creating an ecosystem where these facilities can keep running into the future?
In the process now, a new employer comes to Delaware but hits a hangup when it comes to the workforce and filling these roles from Delaware.
Meanwhile, Sussex County is the fastest growing county in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic region, so a lot of the attraction lies in tapping into the talent there. Workforce development investments into research like biopharma at the University of Delaware can be ways to build the funnel right in the state, and result in breaking ground for large biopharma facilities like the one outside of Middletown.
High school training programs and non-college pathways to build a technical talent pipeline are key pieces to future-proofing, too, and include organizations like Quick Start that implements training on a large scale and coding bootcamp Zip Code Wilmington.
We don’t get the work done for these sites without the local folks. Per the experts, other cabinet agencies and departments in control of permitting are slowing down the road to getting us to that six-month target. It is a continued effort from cabinet agencies, workforce development, and top-down state leadership to get our two years’ turnaround time down to months.
Despite the progress, there is still a need for efficiency.
“The speed with which projects get done really needs a push from the top-down, highest offices in the state,” said Michael Petit de Mange, county administrator of Kent County.
Carney is on board: “We remain committed to Ready in 6, and we know there are additional things we can continue to do. We’ll continue to make progress with the Department of Transportation as well as the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control.”

The learning curve has gotten dramatically more difficult over the past month during Monmouth’s first season in the Colonial Athletic Association. But on Saturday it became more daunting than anyone could have anticipated four weeks ago.
After a series of tough losses, Monmouth was simply dominated by Delaware throughout, falling 49-17 at Delaware Stadium in Newark, Delaware.
Monmouth's defensive woes continue to worsen, as the Blue Hens built a built a 42-10 halftime lead. Quarterback Nolan Henderson dissected the Hawks’ secondary, finishing with 323 yards and five touchdown passes, while running for another score, as they finished with 506 yards of offense.
The fourth straight loss marks Monmouth’s longest skid since dropping the final five games of the 2016 season. The Hawks had won four straight games before the slide.
"We knew it was going to be a tough grind in the CAA, but this is our first time going through it and we're finding out how much of a grind it is," Monmouth coach Kevin Callahan said.
Playing without starting quarterback Tony Muskett for a second straight game, Monmouth (4-6, 2-5) struggled to move the ball consistently. While Jaden Shirden finished with 202 yards rushing, the Delaware defense was able to somewhat contain the sophomore speedster after he broke a 69-yard touchdown run on the second play of the game.
Freshman quarterback Enzo Arjona made his second straight start for Monmouth, completing 8-of-19 for 90 yards and no touchdowns, after throwing for three scores in his first start.
"Delaware runs a very complex defense, one we don't see and Enzo certainly hasn't seen before," Callahan said. "We had a package of plays we thought would be manageable for him, but Delaware did a great job."
Delaware, ranked 16th and 18th nationally in the two major FCS polls, remains in the hunt for an FCS Playoff spot, improving to 7-2 on the season.
After a bye week, Monmouth closes the season by hosting Stony Brook at Kessler Stadium on Nov. 19.
After Shirden’s TD run, Delaware quickly put together a scoring drive, with Henderson finding Thyrick Pitts on a 13-yard TD pass to tie the game at 7-all. On their second possession, it was Henderson finding Jourdan Townsend wide open behind cornerback Dante Kiett on a 49-yard TD pass give the Blue Hens a 14-7 lead midway through the first quarter.
Monmouth finally got a stop late in the first quarter, when linebacker Remi Johnson made a third-down sack to force a three-and-out. But Dymere Miller muffed the ensuing punt, with Delaware recovering the ball at Monmouth’s eight-yard-line. It was the latest major mistake by the Hawks’ special teams, and Henderson took advantage with his third TD pass of the quarter, making it 21-10.
It was the start of what ended up being 35 unanswered points, with Delaware scoring three touchdowns in the final 5:34 of the first half.
"Delaware really just overwhelmed us early in the game and we were never able to recover," said Callahan, with the Hawks now assured of their first losing season since 2016.
Shirden was the lone bright spot, having rushed for 1,567 yards in 10 games. It was his eighth game over the 100-yard mark, and the fourth time he's topped 200 yards this season.
At a moment when Monmouth desperately needs a victory, the Hawks couldn’t have found a tougher Colonial Athletic Association venue to try to end a three-game losing streak.
Delaware (6-2, 3-2), in the hunt for a spot in FCS Playoffs and ranked in the top-20 in both major FCS polls, is unbeaten in four games at Delaware Stadium this season. The Blue Hens are 11-2 at home over the past three seasons, with both losses coming against top-10 opponents.
Monmouth (4-5, 2-4) does have a top-10 road win this season, having knocked off Villanova when the Wildcats were No. 9 in the country.
Kickoff in Newark, Delaware today is at 1 p.m., with the game televised on NBC Sports Philadelphia and streamed on FloSports.com, with audio available on MonmouthHawks.com.
Check back right here this afternoon for complete coverage of the Monmouth-Delaware game.
Here are five keys for the Hawks:
Regardless of who starts at quarterback, whether it’s Tony Muskett, who missed the last game with a sore knee, or freshman Enzo Arjona, the Hawks have to run the ball consistently. Jaden Shirden broke yet another long run, this one a 75-yard TD burst, against Towson. But Delaware’s run defense is better, and creating creases for Shirden and Juwon Farri, as well as Owen Wright in short yardage situations, will be critical to controlling the game.
If there’s a particular area where the Blue Hens’ offense has struggled it’s inside the opposition’s 20-yard-line, ranking 113th nationally in red zone offense. But Monmouth’s 87th in red zone defense, ranked in the bottom half among 123 FCS programs.
If the Hawks could stop a drive or two, it might be enough given Monmouth’s ability to score.
If Monmouth can’t show it can slow Delaware’s ground game down early on it’s going to be a long afternoon. Two weeks ago, Rhode Island opened the game with 10 straight running plays, going on to rush for 178 yards, while Towson ran for 263 yards last weekend.
Delaware averages 139 yards on the ground. Keep the Blue Hens around that and you have a chance.
Last week it was a pair of long returns, one on a punt and another on a kickoff, to go with a missed extra point. But it’s always something with the Hawks’ special teams, which have been unable to play a clean game.
Special teams mistakes on the road are a recipe for disaster. The last time they were on the road, a fumbled kickoff return was a key factor in their loss at Maine.
For much of the season it was Monmouth altering the course of games with backbreaking plays. Now the opposition is giving the Hawks a does of their own medicine.
In addition to the special teams gaffs, Monmouth’s defense has given up a series of long-gainers during their recent skid. Towson set the top with a 61-yard touchdown pass on its opening possession.

A forthcoming research paper for Philanthropy Roundtable by Pacific Research Institute economist Wayne Winegarden examines regulations on the charitable sector by state. We can all agree there is a level of regulatory oversight that is appropriate to protect donors from fortunately rare cases of fraud and abuse among bad actors. Between the IRS and the states, charities are strictly regulated under current law.
However, the imposition of additional layers of regulation – with no evidence of systemic problems arising from rules already in place – is not an effective means of building public trust or compliance, and in fact, could have negative implications for the charitable sector. In order to better understand the impact of excessive regulations, the Roundtable believes more research is needed. In his analysis, Winegarden ranks states on factors such as regulatory burdens associated with starting up charities, annual filing fees, the stringency of audit requirements and other regulations. These findings yield important insights on the impact of overregulation on the charitable sector.
A key conclusion of the forthcoming paper is that states with lower regulatory burdens are home to a greater number of charities. This point can be illustrated when we look at two very similar neighboring states, separated by only a river: Delaware and New Jersey.
Delaware is among the top five friendliest states for the charitable sector. It is home to about 79 charities per billion dollars of economic output (GDP). In Delaware, new charities pay an $89 incorporation fee and do not need to apply separately for exemption from the state corporate income tax. Each year, charities are required to pay a maximum of $25 in annual filing fees.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the spectrum are states like New Jersey, which impose far higher burdens on charities. The Garden State is home to relatively fewer charities, at just under 53 charities per billion dollars of economic output. In New Jersey, new charities are subject to a $75 incorporation fee, plus a top registration fee of $250, and they must apply for exemption from the state corporate income tax. Compared to the $25 annual fee in Delaware, New Jersey charities could face up to $250 per year in annual filing fees.
New Jersey and Delaware are just two examples of states where we can draw conclusions about the impact of overregulation on charitable activity. With the publication of the full report in the coming weeks, we hope to shed more light on the impact of heavy-handed policies on the vitality of the sector in all 50 states. In the meantime, with Giving Tuesday fast approaching at the end of November, we encourage policymakers to consider the negative consequences that imposing heavy burdens on charities may have on our communities – and those most in need of help.

DOVER – Delaware’s unemployment rate was unchanged in October, bucking a slight increase in the national trend, according to state officials.
October saw 900 job gains, reverting September’s job losses, but also the loss of 200 more jobseekers in the labor force, according to the monthly report released Friday morning.
The labor force captures not only workers and those receiving unemployment benefits, but also those in search of work who aren’t receiving assistance. As workers stop seeking work, for a variety of reasons ranging from retirement to child care needs, they are no longer counted as being unemployed in the state.
Delaware’s October unemployment rate remained at 4.3%, but was still higher than the national average, which increased 20 basis points to 3.7% last month.
Delaware ranked tied for 43rd in unemployment rate among states in October, according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data. It has fallen behind Pennsylvania and New Jersey, which ranked 44th, 37th and 25th at 4 % and 3.5%, respectively, but has moved ahead of Maryland, which dropped to a tie for 47th at 4.5%. Minnesota and Utah had the lowest rates of 2.1%, while Nevada had the highest at 4.6%.
The Delaware Department of Labor’s report is taken monthly during the calendar week that contains the 12th day. The state recorded 21,700 unemployed people last month, an increase of 400 people over September.
The official monthly unemployment figure is created by looking at continuous unemployment insurance claims as well as a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics survey of residents on their employment status. It tracks not only those receiving benefits, but also those who are ineligible, such as terminated employees, those who have resigned and the self-employed, who only became eligible for assistance under a special federal program established under the CARES Act.
The state’s three counties saw differing rates of unemployment in September, with New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties reporting rates of 4%, 4.8% and 4, respectively – although those statistics aren’t seasonally adjusted. Wilmington and Dover, the state’s two most populous cities, have seen an even greater impact in job losses, where 5.5% and 6.5% of workers were unemployed, respectively.
Leading job gains last month was the leisure and hospitality sector, which added 700 jobs. It was followed by financial services, which added 400; education and health, which added 300; and construction, which also added 300.
The largest monthly job losses came from professional and business services sector, which lost 500 jobs, while manufacturing lost 100 and the transportation, trade and utilities sector also lost 100. Unsorted industries lost another 200.

NJ Transit is close to working out a new deal for its rail workers, but there’s one serious sticking point.
The union representing locomotive engineers has turned thumbs down on the proposed contract, and that is causing some serious concern.
Reliable sources close to the negotiations tell New Jersey 101.5 that 14 of the 15 rail unions have accepted NJ Transit’s deal offering a 12% pay increase over 4 and a half years, but BLET, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen union. has rejected it, and wants more than double what’s been offered.
According to Todd Vachon, the director of the Labor Education Action Research Network at Rutgers University, it is common for rail unions to negotiate together. However, the union seen as the most powerful is the one that typically tries to settle the best agreement, and in this case, it’s the BLET.
He said in recent years NJ Transit has been giving 2.5% pay hikes and"the engineer’s union is saying that just doesn’t make up for the money they’ve lost from rising inflation, the inflation rate is 8.5% this year, and they’re says a 2.5% raise for this year is still a 6% pay cut."
"They’re trying to really bargain hard for their members, workers are saying no, we’re losing pay because of inflation so we really want to get a deal that makes up for that."
Vachon said as we’ve seen across the whole economy, "during this tight labor market and this period of high inflation, increasingly workers are voting down those contracts and saying no, we want more, we have greater leverage at this time than we did previously."
He pointed out the Railway Labor Act stipulates when the employer and the union come to an impasse, "they automatically kick into a cooling off period where both sides are supposed to step away from the table for a little bit, the union go back and talk to the members, management reconsiders what they’re thinking."
"The threat of a strike happening imminently or immediately is really pretty low because there’s going to be a series of periods where they go into cooling off and then going back in to discuss again."
Reliable sources tell New Jersey 101.5 that the earliest possible time frame for a possible strike would be this time next year.
A spokesman for the BLET said negotiations are coming up next week and the union does not feel it’s appropriate to comment right now.
A spokesman for NJ Transit declined to discuss the situation.
