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:

A school district in Bergen County, N.J. is facing a lawsuit filed from a former secretary alleging she was groomed and sexually harassed by the business administrator, and then retaliated against when she filed a complaint.
Wende Pettit, who served as an executive secretary for Fair Lawn Public Schools beginning in 2016, claims a business administrator who was hired in 2021 sexually harassed her in person and through hundreds of unwanted text messages, reports NorthJersey.com.
Her lawsuit was filed in Bergen County Superior Court on Sept. 29, and accuses John Serapiglia — now the business administrator for Linden Public Schools in Union County — of inappropriate conduct.
According to the lawsuit, Serapiglia engaged “in a persistent pattern of conduct designed to exploit [Pettit’s] emotions and feelings,” in an attempt to control and manipulate her.
Pettit claims Serapiglia became “provocative and flirtatious” over text, commented on her appearance in person and told her that he fantasized about her sexually.
The continued harassment created a hostile work environment for Petitt, who said she went ignored when she told Serapiglia she was uncomfortable with his behavior. She claims she was later told to delete their text exchanges.
“I will keep complimenting you until you like it,” Serapiglia allegedly texted her in 2022.
Pettit also claims he took advantage of her mental health history, repeatedly pulling her in and then pushing her away while claiming she had “emotional problems.”
Pettit admitted that she and Serapiglia engaged physically on two occasions with a “long embrace and kiss.” However, he soon began speaking to her negatively, telling her she was “making the relationship very intense” and that she had misread his feelings.
The suit claims that when Pettit brought a formal complaint to Nicholas Norcia, Fair Lawn’s superintendent at the time, she was retaliated against and required to stay at her desk at all times except for bathroom breaks. It was later suggested that she simply find a new job.
When Pettit eventually told Norcia she was resigning, he allegedly told her, “You can tell people you are leaving, but you cannot tell them why you are leaving.”
In addition to sexual harassment, retaliation and a hostile work environment, the lawsuit against the Fair Lawn Public School District alleges intentional infliction of emotional distress.
“Often, employees who experience sexual harassment are labeled ‘dramatic,'” Pettit’s attorney Robert Tandy said in a statement. “[This] causes further emotional problems for individual victims because it fuels one’s doubt and fears associated with coming forward to complain.”

When it comes to quality, high-level training toward an ambitious goal, the old adage holds true: you get out what you put in. This is a basic principle that I apply in coaching the countless prospective athletes entering the Parisi Speed School in Fair Lawn, New Jersey – but in the case of New York Jets offensive tackle Mekhi Becton, the situation was a little unique, as we were aiming for a full-scale, back-to-basics career reset following a less-than-ideal introduction to the NFL.
Such a comeback can be difficult to pull off amidst both external and internal adversity, but Mekhi was up to the challenge, putting in the work week after week as we rebuilt his training approach, nutritional and caloric foundation, and overall playing mentality. This dedication and grit were immensely important in a fundamental sense, but they could only come to fruition through consistency; that meant Mekhi had to carry his hard work over to the Jets' preseason regimen, showing the organization he was ready to make the biggest impact possible for his coaches and teammates.
Now, with the Jets’ season in full swing, Mekhi is taking the field as a starting member of the team’s offensive line. This major accomplishment is a testament to Mekhi’s work ethic and vision, and it reflects the timeless relationship between hard work and consistency – a factor that transcends skill level or athletic concentration. Regardless of goal, training should be a lifestyle and mentality that lasts long beyond any single workout – especially if you’re striving to defy expectations and reinvent yourself to achieve bold new goals.
Mekhi has regained the chance to join one of the NFL’s most promising, up-and-coming offenses, with the hopes of sparking a championship run. To maximize his potential and do his part, however, he will have to continue embodying the same consistency and ambition displayed during his transformative off-season and pre-season training. As I see it, the future looks bright.

Fair Lawn residents will get a chance to hear the four Board of Education candidates' campaign platforms and goals during a forum this Thursday.
Four contenders — Manda Pasarkar, Julie Mahan, Jeanne Browne and Rita Fayvelevich — are running for three three-year terms in the Nov. 7 election. Mahan and Fayvelevich are incumbents who have served since 2020.
The forum will be held at the Fair Lawn council chambers at Borough Hall, 8-01 Fair Lawn Ave., at 8 p.m. The event is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Fair Lawn and the Fair Lawn Parent Teacher Association Council.
Residents can submit questions for candidates to answer at the event by sending them to the League of Women Voters at [email protected]. The questions must be submitted by 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 11.
Browne, who has a child in the district, said on her campaign page that’s she running together with Pasarkar and Mahan.
If elected, she said, she plans to support STEM and STEAM programs in the district and hopes to support community events, such as school book fairs, and ensure that these types of events continue in the district.
Pasarkar, who has lived in the borough for 23 years, works in the science industry as a regulatory professional, she said on her Facebook campaign page. She has a daughter starting her junior year at Fair Lawn High School and a son who graduated in 2020.
If elected, she said, she would listen to the concerns of students and parents, support STEM education for all students, emphasize "girls in tech," promote hands-on science education in elementary grades and increase support for students taking the SAT or ACT.
Mahan works as a mental health clinician, has children in the district and currently serves as the school board's vice president. If reelected, she said on her campaign page, she will focus on children's school-based health needs, stabilizing taxes, boosting collaboration between high school athletics and community recreation programs, increasing inclusive educational opportunities and exploring the development of career and technical education programs to support post-graduation plans for students.
Fayvelevich said on her page that during her time on the board, she has worked to make improvements to the school system for all Fair Lawn students. She’s been a Fair Lawn resident for 20 years and will have a child entering the district in two years.
She said her work on the school budget helped pave the way for “three transformative enrichment programs": Code Ninja, Mad Science and Chess. She said the programs show her “unwavering commitment to ensuring the best in educational excellence,” since historically, these type of after-school programs weren’t part of the school budget.

A former secretary at Fair Lawn Public Schools has filed a lawsuit against the district claiming the business administrator sexually harassed her in person and in hundreds of unwanted text messages.
The woman, who now works for another district, alleges John Serapiglia engaged in a pattern of conduct designed to exploit the woman’s emotions and mental health, according to court papers.
“This was done through a substantial number (440 pages) of text messages, telephone conversations, and in-person conversations,” according to the lawsuit filed Sept. 29 in Superior Court of Bergen County.
Serapiglia, who is now the business administrator in Linden Public Schools in Union County, did not respond to a request for comment on the lawsuit. Administrators with the Fair Lawn district did not immediately respond Friday to calls and emails seeking comment.
The lawsuit alleges the secretary developed an emotional dependency on the business administrator and “was unable to recognize the manipulative nature of his conduct.”
The suit states Serapiglia showered the woman with compliments and excessive praise in an effort to groom her.
Serapiglia allegedly sent the woman texts about her “body, the clothes she was wearing, and her physique,” the suit states. The woman wearing skirts was his “kryptonite,” he allegedly texted to her.
“I will keep complimenting you until you like it,” Serapiglia allegedly texted the woman in June 2022.
On Sept. 15, 2022, the woman complained to both Nicholas Norica, Fair Lawn’s superintendent at the time, and the human resources department that she felt uncomfortable in the same building with Serapiglia.
Norcia, who is named as a defendant in the lawsuit, has since left Fair Lawn schools and is now superintendent of the Morris Hills Regional School District in Morris County. He did not immediately respond on Friday to a request for comment.
The suit says that “almost immediately,” Norcia began to retaliate against the woman after she made her complaint. He required her to remain at her desk at all times except for bathroom breaks or to get the mail and she was unable to speak with co-workers in person, the suit alleges.
On Oct. 3, 2022, the woman filed a sexual harassment complaint with human resources. On Oct. 21, 2022, she learned Serapiglia had filed an internal complaint against her, but the lawsuit does not specify the allegations.
The result was two simultaneous investigations — one involving the secretary, the other the business administrator.
In December, the woman received a memo from the human resources director stating there was no finding of sexual harassment because she believed the relationship between the woman and Serapiglia was consensual.
The woman says in the suit she applied for the position of payroll supervisor and was turned down.
The lawsuit says the woman gave her notice of resignation, telling Norcia she was leaving because of sexual harassment and retaliation.
Norcia allegedly told the woman, “You can tell people you are leaving, but you cannot tell them why you are leaving.”
In addition to sexual harassment and retaliation, the lawsuit alleges a hostile work environment and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The next hearing for the warehouse that is planned to replace the Nabisco factory in Fair Lawn will be moved to July.
A hearing on the proposal by Greek Development was supposed to be heard on June 19, which is Juneteenth. During the board’s Monday meeting, however, Planning Board President Ari Ludzki said the board plans to carry the application to the July 17 meeting.
The board is legally required to hold a short special meeting on June 19 to officially announce that it will be carrying the application to July, Ludzki said.
He said during the Monday meeting that when he was asked to schedule the meeting for June 19, he had done it after seeing the borough calendar, which said Fair Lawn was recognizing Juneteenth on Friday, not Monday. However, since the Planning Board has a new attorney and Juneteenth is a designated holiday, the board will not be meeting on that date, Ludzki said.
Greek Development plans to replace the cookie factory with 644,000 square feet of warehouse space and 10,000 square feet of office space. The project would include 256 parking spaces and would not require the borough to approve any variances. The developer's engineer said during a hearing in early May that he anticipates there won't be "any significant traffic impacts" and that in fact there would be a drastic reduction in volume from the old cookie factory.
Mondel?z International Inc., the Chicago-based parent company of Nabisco, sold the 40-acre site for $146.5 million in 2021 to a limited liability company tied to Greek Development.
Community members, especially Glen Rock residents who live on the Fair Lawn border near the old bakery, had become increasingly vocal about contamination risks from a planned implosion of the factory over the last few months. Many signed a petition asking for additional testing and expressed frustration with the communication and information coming from local leaders.
Greek Development decided to cancel a planned implosion of the building in May after hearing the concerns of the community and is planning to take down the building with an “alternative method” that does not include explosives.
