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 Fair Lawn, 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 Fair Lawn, 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:

People like to brag about where they're from, but residents of one New Jersey borough may be able to get the last word in the tri-state, according to recent rankings.
Personal finance website WalletHub gave Fair Lawn one of the best scores in the U.S. in its rankings of best small cities in America. The Bergen County city was ranked sixth in the country, with high marks in education and health (17th) and safety (18th).
While it still ranked toward the front of the pack in affordability (143rd) and economic health (241st), according to WalletHub, it struggled in quality of life, being rated just 883rd overall in that category (out of 1,300 cities rated in the study).
But Fair Lawn doesn't get all the bragging rights. Saratoga Springs, a popular tourism spot just north of Albany, also scored in the 99th percentile, with a score just below Fair Lawn, at 69.11, good for 9th overall. Four other small cities — all in New Jersey — also landed in the top 5% of small cities, including Princeton, Ridgewood, Paramus and Hoboken.
Also, the Long Island town of Commack has the lowest share of its population living in poverty, just 1.8%, according to WalletHub. Westfield, New Jersey, was just behind it.
The top-ranked small city for Connecticut, the study found, was New Haven County's Shelton, followed by the coastal cities of Stratford and Norwalk.
So what was the top city overall? That honor goes to Carmel, Indiana, which was rated one of the safest small cities in the country (4th), along with top 50 ranks in affordability (31st) and education and health (50th). It was one of three Indiana cities to make the top five, along with neighboring Westfield (4th overall) and Fishers (5th overall), WalletHub found. Lexington, Massachusetts, and Brentwood, Tennessee, also were rated as the best of the best.
Here are the tri-state small cities among the top cities, being rated in the 90th percentile or above, according to WalletHub's study (the percentile is in parentheses):
On the other end of the scale, New Jersey was also home to a city that had among the worst scores in the country, as Camden was put into just the 1st percentile of scores (it had the eighth-worst score of all cities ranked). Camden had a score of just 42.34, just a few points above the city with the lowest score — which was Bessemer, Alabama, given a score of 37.02, the study found.
New Jersey was actually home to five cities that finished among the lowest in the country, with Millville, Atlantic City, Vineland and Trenton all finishing in the lowest tier. Rockland County's Spring Valley was also rated low on the list.
Other notables on the list: New Jersey's Lakewood had the fourth-highest housing costs, while New Brunswick had the fourth-lowest homeownership rate; Stratford, Connecticut, had the fourth-worst income growth; Hoboken was tied for fourth-highest amount of hours worked each week.
Here is the rest of the list — 80th percentile or above:

State and federal health officials will be at Fair Lawn borough hall on Wednesday to discuss toxic pollution in the town, where plans are moving forward to remove contaminants from four borough water wells.
The sessions will be held in collaboration with the New Jersey Department of Health officials and the U.S. Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. According to a flyer distributed by the town, the agencies will be available to meet individually with community members.
The announcement didn't address any specific sites in the borough but said officials would be on hand to discuss "our process for evaluating environmental contaminants and potential health effects."
Officials will be available for consultation during two periods on Wednesday: one from 2 to 4 p.m. and another from 6 to 8 p.m. The meetings will be held in Room 201 of Borough Hall at 8-01 Fair Lawn Avenue.
The sessions come on the heels of an announcement last month about a new groundwater treatment system designed to remove toxic substances from four water wells that have been declared a federal Superfund site. The treatment is estimated to be complete by 2025.
Fair Lawn shut down the wells in 2016 after tests showed high concentrations of 1,4-dioxane, a “likely carcinogen” that can also cause liver and kidney damage. Once complete, the new groundwater treatment system will remove that contaminant as well as PFOA and PFOA, chemicals that have been linked to kidney and testicular cancer.
Residents in Fair Lawn and nearby Glen Rock have also raised questions in recent months about the former Nabisco factory that lies on the border of both towns. Amid plans to demolish the plant and redevelop the site, neighbors cited the danger of releasing asbestos or other materials into the air.
Property owner Greek Development canceled a planned implosion in May and said it would remove the building by alternative means, but no new information about the process has been announced in the months since.
The flyer announcing Wednesday's sessions encouraged community members who can't make the event to contact the Health Department's Christa Fontecchio or Somia Aluwalia at 609-826-4984 or by e-mail at [email protected] and [email protected].
Reached by NorthJersey.com, Aluwalia referred all comments to the department’s press office, which did not return calls for comment.

In November, Fair Lawn became one of the first North Jersey municipalities to be designated as a Film Ready Community by the New Jersey Motion Picture & Television Commission. Earlier in the year, the New Jersey Motion Picture & Television Commission launched its Film Ready Program to encourage more municipalities to become "film ready".
The program is a five-step certification and marketing initiative that prepares towns to handle film and TV production more efficiently and safely as designated film-ready communities.
To get Fair Lawn certified as a Film Ready Community, representatives from Fair Lawn Main Street Inc. worked with the New Jersey Motion Picture & Television Commissions and Fair Lawn Borough Council to make revisions to the Borough’s ordinance surrounding filming to put the municipality in a more advantageous position to attract interest from film studios. The Borough Manager’s Office was also designated as Fair Lawn’s official film liaison.
Steven Gorlick, Director of the New Jersey Motion Picture & Television Commission explained in his letter announcing Fair Lawn’s approval as a certificated Film Ready Community: The “film ready” designation provides an elevated platform for certified communities to promote themselves as a filming designation and connects film and TV professionals with skilled and knowledgeable liaisons across the state, who can provide local expertise and support to create easier, faster and better access to nearby resources.
The Film Ready designation also grants Fair Lawn access to Reel-Scout, the New Jersey Motion Picture & Television Commission’s online location library for production companies. The Borough may upload location photos of places in Fair Lawn for production companies to consider for filming.
Film Ready Communities are also able to upload names of local businesses into Reel-Scout that may be advantageous to production companies, such as eateries, caterers, vehicle rental shops, car repairers, hotels, etc.
Fair Lawn Main Street Inc.’s Subcommittee on TV and Film will work to bolster the Borough’s offerings in the Reel-Scout system.
The committee is also working to organize a Fair Lawn Film Festival in 2024.

An unofficial New Jersey town landmark that had been slated for implosion in a week and a half has gotten a reprieve.
The Nabisco plant in Fair Lawn, which filled the air with the delectable smell of baked cookies for 60 years before it was shut down in 2021, was scheduled to be imploded on Saturday, April 15. That is no longer the case, officials say.
They don't have a new date set for the implosion, either, though Fair Lawn officials indicated the change was merely a postponement. The nearly 40-acre site was expected to be razed to build a warehouse, NorthJersey.com reported.
Why the delay? It's unclear, but the mayor of Fair Lawn said that the controversy surrounding the implosion was not a factor in the decision to postpone.
According to Fair Lawn, the contractor performing the implosion said a state regulation prevents demolitions if the impact would be exacerbated by certain meteorological conditions that create "a low ceiling," like fog or cloud cover. It said it would track the weather five days in advance, flag any potential concerns and reschedule if necessary.
The owner of Greek Development, which bought the 40-acre site, said that the safety of workers and surrounding community are of utmost concern. Residents will be notified two weeks prior before the implosion is rescheduled.
All that said, Fair Lawn announced the sudden postponement on Wednesday, a full 10 days before the planned blast on April 15 at 8 a.m. blast. No other details were immediately provided.
The massive site on Route 208 has been a part of the landscape for as long as some folks can remember.
Hundreds of people working for the company were out of a job when it closed a few years back. The demolition started last fall, according to NJ.com, but this big boom was expected to be among the more disruptive components.
The tower over the factory with the giant red NABISCO letters was supposed to be part of the implosion, which drew extensive public interest for multiple reasons. Some people just wanted to watch.
Police said Thursday that won't happen, whenever a new date is set. Construction crews have been dismantling the tower for several weeks now and have made considerable progress, so much so that the mayor of Fair Lawn told NBC New York by phone that the size of the implosion could be scaled back some.
The general public is asked to avoid the area surrounding the property on the yet-to-be-determined new implosion date. Road closures will be in place that day.
In the lead-up, residents had expressed concerns about air quality and potential soil and water contamination, and one school district had planned to close the following Monday out of an abundance of caution. Several hundred people who live nearby signed a petition demanding more information about the potential health, safety and environmental impacts of the implosion.
The contractor says air monitoring is part of its protocol. It said it also follows state rules around waste removal and hazardous material and has noise and seismic monitoring in place for additional protective measures.
Fair Lawn officials say more information will be released as it becomes available.

The final hearing for a warehouse proposed to replace the Nabisco factory in Fair Lawn will be held on Monday, and the public will have a last chance to give feedback.
The meeting, which will begin at 7 p.m., will be held at 8-01 Fair Lawn Ave. and will allow public members to comment on the project being proposed by developer Greek Development before final board deliberations. The warehouse project, if approved, would cover 644,000 square feet — about the size of Prudential Center in Newark — with another 10,000 square feet of office space. It would include 256 parking spaces and would not require the borough to approve any variances.
A May hearing for the proposal focused on a traffic study prepared by Langan Engineering & Environmental Services, a firm hired by Greek Development. The study estimated that there would be 135 trips into and out of the warehouse during weekday morning peak hours, with 148 trips in and out during weekday evenings. That would be a drastic reduction from when the factory was in operation, according to the report.
Since then, the borough had its own traffic study of the site completed and officially released to the public on Aug. 30. The July 2023 study by McDonough & Rea Associates found that the traffic data it collected shows "higher existing traffic volume" than the data collected by Langan in February 2022.
The newer study also says the analysis shows "acceptable traffic operations can be maintained at intersections where site generated turning movements and U-turns will be generated."
"In addition, a review of the Langan analysis shows that the warehouse redevelopment proposal has a lower traffic impact than re-occupancy of the Nabisco industrial bakery," the report states.
The newer study shows that the level of service, which involves factors such as speed and density, at intersections during peak weekend morning hours included six A ratings, seven B ratings, three C ratings and two D ratings, which included both existing and new intersections if the project is built.
When compared with a “no build” scenario for existing intersections, the level of service remained the same rating for existing intersections except for turning left on Fair Lawn Avenue and the Route 208 northbound ramp, which went from a C to a D, and moving through the same intersection, which went from an A to a B.
Residents vent frustration:Fair Lawn meeting on Nabisco building leaves redevelopment questions unanswered
Mondel?z International Inc., Nabisco's Chicago-based parent, shut down the landmark North Jersey factory in 2021, ending six decades of churning out Oreos, animal crackers and other treats at the factory. The snack maker then sold the 40-acre site for $146.5 million to Greek Development, which filed its warehouse proposal in February.
Community members, especially Glen Rock residents who live on the Fair Lawn border near the old bakery, had become increasingly vocal about their concerns over the past few months, in particular the potential for contamination that could be released when knocking down the building. A planned implosion of the building was postponed and later canceled in May, with Greek Development promising an "alternative method" to bring down the building. No new details of the plan have been released publicly at this time.
