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 Franklin Lakes, 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 Franklin Lakes, 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:

FRANKLIN LAKES, NJ — A new luxury rental building has officially opened in Franklin Lakes.
Hailed for its "spacious layouts and upscale amenities," The Franklin — located at 8 Tice Road — has opened to the community, a marketing release said.
“We’d like to thank Mayor (Charles) Kahwaty for helping us officially open The Franklin, a high-end residential building that’s reflective of the character of Franklin Lakes,” the developer's CEO Sonny Adoni said.
Kahwaty joined principals from Adoni Property Group to cut the ribbon (on April 18) celebrating the opening of the "ultra-luxurious" 52-home building, which — marketers said — delivers "sophisticated living in a sought-after suburban setting."
Homes at The Franklin are outfitted with designer appointments and features, including nine-foot ceiling heights, plank flooring, chef-inspired kitchens, full-sized stainless steel appliances, and two-tone soft-close cabinetry, the release said.
"The building has drawn many borough residents who appreciate the opportunity to enjoy an upscale lifestyle experience while remaining a part of the community they love," the Adoni CEO said.
"We’ve also welcomed many newcomers to Franklin Lakes," he added. "The dynamic mix of residents has created a vibrant residential destination that’s become an asset to the neighborhood.”
The Franklin debuted in the borough in August, with 44 move-in-ready (market-rate) units and rent starting at about $3,300; the other eight units are affordable housing, according to a report and an apartment spokesperson.
Complementing the apartments, the marketing team said in the release, is a full suite of "resort-inspired" amenities, including an outdoor patio with fire pits and gas BB!, a fitness center, lounge/event space, movie theatre, golf and multi-sport simulator, a private office and workspaces, and even a dog wash.

FRANKLIN LAKES — An ordinance to amend the borough's affordable housing plan to add the 89-acre former Cigna/IBM/Express Scripts site will be introduced by Mayor Charles Kahwaty and the Borough Council on May 2.
The ordinance would formalize the council's 4-3 vote on March 29, which approved an amended plan by developer S. Hekemian Group for 305 multi-housing units and 495,000 square feet of warehousing on the site, off Parsons Pond Drive. The project's 250 multi-family units would be 15% to 20% affordable, depending on whether they are rentals or for sale; also included are 55 affordable units to be built by the borough on 3.5 acres of the site donated by the developer.
During the Feb. 1 council meeting, residents were not happy with Hekemian's initial public plan for 640 units, 156 affordable. Kahwaty announced that Hekemian originally proposed 2,500 units for the site, but residents were calling for no development at all.
The revised plan was approved over protests from a smaller group of residents, whose concerns shifted to the impact of warehouse traffic on Old Mill Road and its intersection with the borough's Franklin Avenue main thoroughfare.
In breaking the council's 3-3 tie, Kahwaty cautioned that the property would be "eviscerated" if the council turned down the proposal, and Hekemian would take the borough to court.
"As much damage as may come to the people of Old Mill Road and the surrounding areas, it will be quintuple that," Kahwaty told residents. "The courts are not as concerned about quality of life in Franklin Lakes. They're concerned about adhering to the Mount Laurel doctrine."
A Jan. 23 public information session provided residents with background on the proposal and the complex restraints of the Mount Laurel court rulings, under which each New Jersey municipality is required to provide a realistic opportunity for the production of affordable housing. An audio recording of the session is available on franklinlakes.org.
According to the borough's April 21 Latest Buzz newsletter on its website, officials completed the next four steps in the process earlier this month:
"The ordinance/settlement would not be legal/effective until after the court approves the settlement agreement following the fairness hearing, even if it were adopted prior to the hearing," the newsletter says.
After the ordinance introduction, the newsletter says, the Planning Board will discuss and hold a public hearing on the proposed affordable housing plan amendment, as well as the council's proposed zoning ordinance. A public hearing would be held on the zoning ordinance before its adoption.
After the court's approval of the settlement agreement, Hekemian would file an application and hold hearings with the Planning Board on development of the site. No date was projected when that application would be submitted.
Just days after the remnants of Tropical Storm Ophelia dumped massive amounts of rain on New Jersey, a slow-moving coastal storm has pounded the region with more torrential rain.As of Friday ...
As of Friday afternoon, some areas of the state have already been soaked with as much as 3 to 4 inches of rain since early in the morning. Almost a month’s worth of rain has fallen in half a day.
With the ground already saturated from Ophelia, which blasted some towns with as much as 5 to 6 inches of rain during a four-day span, heavy flooding has triggered multiple flash flood warnings and road closures, several water rescues of stranded drivers.
Gov. Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency for the entire state shortly after 3 p.m.
More bad news: Forecasters from the National Weather Service say more rain is headed our way.
“As we go into this evening, another 1 to 2 inches is possible,” the agency noted. “The rain may even extend through the overnight and into tomorrow.”
Here’s a look at how much rain has fallen across different regions of New Jersey from late Thursday through Friday afternoon, according to preliminary reports from the National Weather Service and the Rutgers NJ Weather Network.
Worth noting: The bull’s eye for the heaviest bands of rain turned out to be Monmouth County, where a whopping 9 inches of rain was measured in Asbury Park and nearly 8 inches in Long Branch and Neptune City. That’s about two months of rain in less than two days.
NOTE: In most counties below, these are the updated rainfall totals reported from late Thursday, Sept. 28, through early Saturday morning, Sept. 30, with most of the rain falling on Friday, Sept. 29.
Note: Additional counties and towns will be added to the list above as new information gets reported.
