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 Delray Beach, 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 Delray Beach, 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:

Delray Beach offers everything that’s quintessentially South Florida—colorful homes and architecture, a cultural melting pot, and the beach—without any pretension. This eclectic beach town, situated between West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale, has seen rapid growth in recent years via higher-end hotel and restaurant openings. While locals and in-the-know travelers have long loved strolling along the town’s main drag of Atlantic Avenue for art galleries, bistros, bars, and shops, the downtown area is now expanding with even more to explore. And bookending the town is a pristine beach with sugar-white sand and ample room to spread out.
Summer is a great time to visit now-bustling Delray Beach. The temperatures rise, sure, but hotel rates plummet and the town’s crowds thin out. Pack comfortable clothes and stay hydrated, and you’ll forget all about the heat while you take in the views from a sleek hotel rooftop or the Atlantic Avenue drawbridge. Here are the best things to do in Delray Beach, Florida.
All listings featured on Condé Nast Traveler are independently selected by our editors. If you book something through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission.
It’s easy to get to Delray Beach by flying into Ft. Lauderdale International or Palm Beach International—it's about 30 minutes away from either. If it doesn’t break the bank, flying into PBI provides a less stressful, easier to manage situation. Even though Delray’s downtown area is dense, you'll want to rent a car as South Florida is generally spread out. If you plan on visiting anything outside of a one mile radius you’ll want to drive. Nearby towns, such as Boca Raton, are worth visiting and public transportation is less than stellar—though the Brightline, a new high-speed train line, makes it easy to take a day trip to Miami sans vehicle.
Visiting the beach is easy, just follow Atlantic Avenue until it dead ends at A1A. While you're there, you may as well pop into the Sandoway Discovery Center, found across the street from the beach on A1A. Kids especially love the historic house-turned-science museum that puts Florida nature on display throughout its rooms. The museum's backyard adds an exciting element in the form of a recently renovated 15,000 gallon saltwater pool that's home to a nurse shark (with more on the way), as well as a stingray touch tank.
One of the best ways to see Delray Beach—and its stunning waterfront mansions—is from the intracoastal on a Delray Yacht Cruise tour. Available daily, the two-hour cruises go up and down the waterway (keep an eye out for marine life).
One could easily spend two days just snacking along Atlantic Avenue. Start the day at Over the Bridge Cafe, a completely alfresco, but covered, dining spot where comforting breakfast items like cream cheese-stuffed challah French toast topped with strawberry compote and short rib hash reign supreme. If you prefer pastries for breakfast, stop by Amar Bakery which specializes in Mediterranean-inspired baked goods such as mini olive oil and lemon loaf cakes, za’atar and haloumi croissants, and spinach pies. They also serve locally-roasted Pumphouse Coffee.
You're in a coastal town, so waterfront dining is mandatory. Deck 84 sits on the intracoastal with views of the drawbridge and passing boats with fare like smoked fish dip and burgers. For a meal with fewer frills, Sandwiches by the Sea serves up hearty subs worthy of a beach picnic.
Dinnertime calls for something more elevated—nothing in Delray is ever too fussy, however—like the glitzy Elisabetta’s which counts brick oven-baked wild mushroom pizza and fried bread with ricotta and prosciutto among the standout options. Even in the heat, Delray mainstay Dada, offers respite in its eclectic dining room within in a 1920s house. Outside, a sprawling patio graced by a stately banyan tree makes an ideal spot to enjoy jalapeño agave-glazed salmon alongside a fruity mojito (start with the strawberry basil).
Delray may be even more lively at night thanks to music venues such as Tin Roof and Johnnie Brown’s, where you’ll hear anything from Mo Town classics to classic rock. The Arts Garage, located within the Pineapple Grove Arts District, has comedy performances in addition to live music. And ending the night with a scoop of stracciatella at Gelato & Co. is always a good choice.
It's hard to beat the recently renovated (in 2022) Seagate Hotel & Spa for upscale accommodations that still manage to feel intimate on busy Atlantic Avenue. The lobby of the 154-room property sets the tone with soothing neutral accents while the recently renovated rooms are bright and airy with spacious balconies. Tropical trees surround the pool, lending to its secluded ambiance, and it's only a 10-minute walk from the beach. Guests also have access to the hotel’s private beach club with its own pool and restaurant.
For more of a resort vibe, the Opal Grand, a beachfront property that was renovated in 2021, has coastal-hued rooms, an expansive pool with ocean views, and a forthcoming roof deck. While you probably opt to only dine at the hotel, it comprises a cocktail bar, posh seafood restaurant, and a pool-adjacent alfresco bar making it easy to do so if you wanted. It’s an upscale family-friendly option with plenty of space to spread out whether that’s in a poolside cabana or a villa with a kitchenette.
The Ray Hotel, a recent addition to Delray, opened in 2021 and presents a modern alternative befitting the Pineapple Grove Arts District with living walls, sculptures, and a chic rooftop pool. It's further inland, about a mile from the beach, but ideal for those who like details such as chilled towels at the gym and swanky hotel dining. The crown jewel of the dining options, Akira Back allures with a Japanese and Korean-inspired menu by the eponymous chef who was born in Seoul.

DELRAY BEACH — A precautionary boil water notice was issued Tuesday in Delray Beach for all properties from East Atlantic Avenue to George Bush Boulevard and from the Intracoastal Waterway to North Ocean Boulevard.
The notice comes after a city water main near Andrews Avenue and Harbor Drive on the barrier island was damaged by a Florida Power & Light Co. subcontractor working in the area, interrupting the water service provided by the city.
Crews have completed repairs to the water main, but several steps lie ahead before Delray Beach officials lift the notice. Here’s what else area residents need to know.
The precautionary boil water notice will remain in effect until a bacteriological test shows the water is safe to drink. Once testing is complete, people in affected areas will receive a rescission notice telling them so.
The rescission notice and any updates will be shared on the city’s website, delraybeachfl.gov, and the city’s Facebook (@CityofDelrayBeach) and Twitter, or X, (@citydelraybeach) pages. For more questions, call (561) 243-7312.
The notice means that an incident occurred that could potentially lead to back-flow or bacteria entering the water system. This could include low to no pressure, a water main break or a disruption in the power plant. In this case, it was a damaged main.
Residents are advised that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth or washing dishes be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient, per the utilities department. Bottled water may be used as an alternative.
In 2020, the Florida Department of Health investigated why the city had not been cleaning its water storage tanks at least once every five years. About a month later, a nonprofit warned of chemicals in the city's water. The city insisted its water met standards.
Last year, a sinkhole swallowed a woman's car in the Kings Point neighborhood, leading to Kings Point ramping up $7 million in water and sewer projects.
This year, a Delray Beach whistleblower who alleged she was fired from her job as a water inspector for bringing water treatment problems to the state's attention settled her water contamination lawsuit for $818,500.
An organic moment for Delray Beach:Sprouts Farmers Market to open grocery store
Tiger Woods' PopStroke putting and dining venue will open in Delray Beach next month, the first of three PopStroke locations opening in Palm Beach County during the next two years.Tiger Woods' PopStroke putting and dining venue will ...
What is PopStroke?
Think of a family-friendly activity, such as mini-golf, then cram technology, bars, food, play areas and even an ice cream parlor into the mix. Top it all off with a sleek putting course design by Woods, and you have a sports, entertainment and food venue designed to appeal to all ages.
The Delray Beach location at 1314 N. Federal Highway will open the first week of November, said PopStroke founder Greg Bartoli. An exact opening date isn't yet set.
The Delray Beach location will feature two synthetic-turf golf courses on 2.9 acres north of downtown Atlantic Avenue's dining district.
Expect a restaurant and bar scene to match the locale.
Downtown Delray Beach "has a lot of entertainment," Bartoli said. "We're positioned to be part of the nightlife. We're going to fit in nicely there."
Daytime may appeal more to families, Bartoli said, not only because of the golf course but also because of the children's play areas and games, including foosball and cornhole.
Nighttime is expected to attract adults in buzzy Delray Beach.
PopStroke features a full, made-from-scratch elevated restaurant serving American fare, ranging from burgers to steaks to seafood, Bartoli said.
And this winter, when the weather turns from unbearable to sublime, the restaurant's pocket doors will open up to allow guests to enjoy the ocean breezes while beholding the greens.
Technology is an integral part of the PopStroke concept. Big-screen televisions are everywhere at PopStroke, including on the course. There's also a 136-inch TV in the restaurant, which Bartoli said is the biggest screen available for watching sports events.
On the course, there's more technology: Customers will be able to use a PopStroke phone app so their drinks can be delivered wherever they are playing.
Because parking is more limited at the Delray Beach spot than at other company venues, PopStroke will provide shuttle service to the North Federal Highway venue from Atlantic Avenue and the beach.
As enthusiastic as Bartoli is about opening in Delray Beach, he's even more pumped about the West Palm Beach location.
In August, PopStroke struck a deal to lease 3.4 acres in West Palm Beach on property owned by Palm Beach International Airport. The land is at the intersection of Australian Avenue and Belvedere Road adjacent to the airport.
Scheduled to open in late 2024, Bartoli said this will be PopStroke's showy flagship location.
In addition to golf, food, drinks and games, this site also will feature a rooftop pool and cabanas atop a large restaurant and second-floor banquet facility. A full children's playground also is planned.
The county's dramatic growth in both residents and companies creates opportunity for a centrally located venue for private events, Bartoli said. Everything from birthday parties to corporate events could take place in the second-floor space.
"We feel the West Palm Beach location could be a big hit," Bartoli said.
Meanwhile, PopStroke will open a Wellington location in 2025. The site is along State Road 7 just north of Wellington Regional Medical Center.
PopStroke costs from $25 to $35 for an all-day pass on weekdays and $30 to $40 on weekends. Discounts are available for children and seniors.
Bartoli, a former Wall Street banker, moved to Florida several years ago. He quickly became a mini-golf aficionado and bought the Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf course, which has two locations in Jupiter.
But Bartoli said he still yearned for a golf venue where he could bring his three children and enjoy some adult me-time.
When he created PopStroke in 2017, he made sure to include play areas and playgrounds along with sports bars and television sets. Bartoli opened PopStroke's first location in Port St. Lucie in 2019, then brought on Woods, who lives in Jupiter Island, as a co-owner in 2020. Woods' TGR Design redid the Port St. Lucie course.
Since 2020, PopStroke has opened locations throughout Florida, including in Sarasota, Fort Myers and Orlando. Nationally, PopStroke has several locations in mostly Sun Belt states. More sites are opening at a fast clip.
A second Scottsdale, Arizona, location opened in October. And new spots in Alabama, Las Vegas, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, three more in Texas, plus two more in Florida, will open in the next few months.
In all, Bartoli expects to have 25 PopStroke locations open by the end of 2025.
Woods isn't the only major golf investor to get involved in PopStroke Entertainment Group. The equipment company TaylorMade recently joined with the venture, too. Each PopStroke venue is outfitted with special edition TaylorMade golf balls for patrons to use on the putting course and take home as a keepsake.
Putters are included in the PopStroke daypass, but premium TaylorMade rental putters can be rented for $10.
Bartoli said the sports entertainment company is growing fast, with more than 1,000 employees nationwide.
The company's Jupiter headquarters employs 50 but will grow, too. More workers are expected to be hired in finance, real estate, technology, operations and human resources, Bartoli said.
In fact, within the next couple of years, PopStroke will need larger office space, he added.

A communications infrastructure company and a celebrity chef have secured space within a mixed-use project now under construction in Delray Beach.
Vertical Bridge has secured 38,474 square feet of office for its headquarters in Sundy Village, a seven-acre development being built at 22 W. Atlantic Ave. by Pebb Capital.
Currently based at 750 Park of Commerce Drive in Boca Raton, Vertical Bridge owns or leases communication towers, data centers, wireless cells, and billboards across the U.S. The company opted to move into Sundy Village to create a "fresh work experience for our team," said Ron Bizick, president and CEO of Vertical Bridge.
"We are absolutely growing, and our office space needs in terms of overall size and layout are critical," Bizick stated. "We sought a vibrant fun, collaborative, beautiful space for our corporate headquarters. Sundy Village checks all the boxes."
Schulson Collective, a Philadelphia hospitality company founded by chef and former "Ultimate Cake Off" presenter Michael Schulson, will lease an 8,756-square-foot space in Sundy. The venue will serve as a space for sushi restaurant Double Knot, which now has a single location in Philadelphia, although Schulson plans to open a second location in Miami's Wynwood neighborhood.
Barcelona Wine Bar, a nationwide tapas restaurant chain, has also secured a 4,887-square-foot location in Sundy Village.
Slated for completion in the summer of 2024, Sundy Village will consist of 99,000 square feet of Class A offices, more than 28,000 square feet of retail space, and a 272-space underground parking garage. The $150 million project, designed by Gensler and RLC Architects, will include six restored historical buildings that were constructed in the early 1900s.
Pebb Capital acquired the site for $39.49 million in October 2019, although the Boca Raton-based real estate development company had to sue the seller to execute the sale.
Founded in 2014 by Todd Rosenberg and Carlos Jimenez, Pebb Capital has a $2 billion real estate portfolio that includes student housing, retail, lending, and hospitality. Although Pebb Capital is currently located at 7900 Glades Road, the firm also intends to move into a 5,595-square-foot office in Sundy once the unique standalone building is completed.
