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:

Rutgers coach Greg Schiano offered Ramapo (Franklin Lakes, N.J.) senior quarterback Jack Grusser, a 6-2, 185-pound Harvard commit, a scholarship on Saturday in hi...
Rutgers coach Greg Schiano offered Ramapo (Franklin Lakes, N.J.) senior quarterback Jack Grusser, a 6-2, 185-pound Harvard commit, a scholarship on Saturday in his office before the start of the Michigan game which Jack attended alongside his brother, Patrick, a class of 2024 passer for DePaul (Wayne, N.J.).
Fired Rutgers offensive coordinator Sean Gleeson had his own style and preferences, but the Grussers and interim OC Nunzio Campanile, who trained Jack as a youngster, go back a long ways.
“We’ve known coach Nunzio for a long time, so it’s an added piece that is obviously intriguing for me and my family,” Grusser told NJ Advance Media. “It started with my dad and Nunzio just knowing the same people. Then Nunzio would coach me up on quarterback stuff when I was a little kid.”
Schiano told Grusser that he’s a competitor with grit to go along with his numbers.
“We had a pretty good talk,” the senior said. “Coach expressed high interest in me. He likes that I’m a winner and have the attitude to go out and get it.”
One of New Jersey’s most prolific passers since transfering to Ramapo from Bergen Catholic heading into his junior year — 4,514 yards and 56 TDs (to just 9 INTs) while completing 68 percent of his 390 throws — Grusser has a quick release and can run to extend plays. But neither of those are his greatest gift.
“Coach Schiano likes that I can process information and things on the field quickly,” Grusser said.
However, a final decision must wait as Ramapo faces Northern Highlands at home on Nov. 11 in a rematch of last years’ Group 4, North 1 sectional final. In an emotional game, played days after the death of Ramapo’s head coach, Grusser racked up 425 total yards and four touchdowns in a 35-30 loss that the Raiders would love nothing more than to avenge.
“Right now, I’m focused on winning the state championship with my team,” Grusser said. “Obviously it’s great to have this now. But as of right now, I’m kind of just taking it all in. I’m still 100 percent committed to Harvard at this point, but you never know.”
A second-team, all-state quarterback pick by NJ.com in 2021, Grusser says it’s nice to get the recruiting validation to go along with it.
“It definitely feels good,” Grusser said. “I knew what I could do as an athlete, I knew what I could do as a player. I never counted myself out. I always trusted in myself and my abilities. This kind of just validates it for myself but for everybody else, too.”
Grusser has the chance to share his craft on the Big Ten stage, and various ties to Rutgers. But can those ties wrestle Grusser away from, arguably, the top academic school in the world?
Grusser has time to think things through with the early signing period spanning from Dec. 21 to 23 this year — six weeks from now.
After landing Kentucky four-star quarterback Gavin Wimsatt for 2022, and accelerating him to the 2021 class — Wimsatt left Owensboro high school a few games into his senior year after completing enough credits to graduate and join the Scarlet Knights’ roster — Rutgers didn’t recruit any other quarterbacks that cycle. It seemed Rutgers might repeat that trend for 2023, but Schiano has since offered five seniors bookended by Grusser whose 19 offers include Rutgers, Ivy League, Patriot League schools, and three Group of Five schools.
Coming off his second consecutive start after spotty play throughout the early season and after missing three games due to a lower body injury, the game has yet to slow down for Wimsatt, who flashes the talent that Schiano has braced us for, but is still developing. Not to mention coping with a midseason change at offensive coordinator which can spur all sorts of new challenges and terminology. Outside of Wimsatt, sophomore Evan Simon, from Mount Joy, Pa., has struggled this season, and is the only experienced quarterback eligible to return.
Meanwhile, Grusser is the sole quarterback from New Jersey who Greg Schiano has offered this cycle while the other four have aligned with other schools — West Virginia, Oregon State, East Carolina and UConn.
Grusser’s Rutgers offer was first reported by NJ Advance Media’s Pat Lanni.

FRANKLIN LAKES – It was almost four hours of football chaos.
It ended with Roman Dario holding up the ball as Northern Highlands teammates swirled around him.
A game dominated by the offense was finally decided by the defense.
The senior linebacker scooped up a fumble in overtime to help Northern Highlands complete a two-score comeback and outlast Ramapo, 49-42, on Thursday in an epic North 1, Group 4 championship game. Just about the only thing that stopped the no-huddle offenses was a pair of delays after the lights went out at Drew Gibbs Field.
Backup quarterback JR Walley tossed three touchdown passes – including the go-ahead strike to Danny Smiechowski – to send the Highlanders past the highest-scoring offense in North Jersey. Walley went toe-to-toe with the Harvard-bound Jack Grusser, who accounted for five touchdowns before leaving the game late in the fourth quarter with an injury.
"It's incredible," Dario said. "I've been losing sleep the last couple of days thinking about this. The confidence was there the entire time. We knew we were more prepared."
Northern Highlands erased a 14-point deficit in the last seven minutes of regulation with two short touchdown runs from senior Charlie Sparago. The Highlanders started overtime with the ball and took the lead on one last completion by Walley (22-for-39, 259 passing), who was thrust into duty with sophomore Nate Johnson out with a concussion.
Northern Highlands forced its third turnover moments later to end the marathon game in an instant. Bergen County's leading tackler, Zach Chostaka, punched the ball free from a Raiders running back on the first play of the drive.
"I didn't see it got loose," Chostaka said. "I was trying to finish the tackle. I heard cheering so I got up and I realized we got the ball."
"He's our leader," new coach Dave Cord said. "You talk about a smart football player. When I got the job in January, he was on the phone with me the next day asking for the playbook. He just eats, sleeps and drinks football. He's really been a calming factor for this team and a leader."
Northern Highlands (8-3) has brought home three straight sectional championships, including title runs in 2019 and 2021 under former coach Greg Russo.
The Highlanders advance to the North Group 4 bowl game at Franklin High School next Friday or Saturday against either North Hunterdon or Randolph. The winner of that round would move on to the inaugural group championships at Rutgers University in the first weekend of December.
"I'm really proud of the guys," Cord said. "We have come a long way as a team and that was our message today. They might have a couple better players, but we're a better team. They really showed how much they love and fight for each other."
Northern Highlands didn't hold back even with a less experienced quarterback under center. The Highlanders scored on their first three possessions and aired it out from the very start. Walley gave Northern Highlands a 28-21 halftime lead with a last-minute, 3-yard strike to Smiechowski.
"We thought our advantage was our skill guys versus their secondary," Cord said. "The playbook did not change one second with Nate stepping out and JR coming in."
Grusser put Ramapo up 42-28 with 7:23 left when he scored his third straight touchdown on a completion to Will Scordato. But Sparago and the Highlands answered two plays later after the kickoff was moved back (unsportsmanlike conduct call). Both teams spent the next 20 minutes in limbo after the field went dark.
"It gave us a couple minutes to make some adjustments defensively," Cord said. "We went out of our comfort zone to what we normally call. It worked. We made two nice plays and got the punt back."
The game went to overtime after Northern Highlands missed a 40-yard field goal attempt near the end of regulation.
But before Smiechowski caught a go-ahead 10-yard pass, the Highlanders had to wait out a second delay: a 15-minute stoppage before a second-and-goal from the Ramapo 7.
"In this type of environment, you don't have to make your own energy," Chostaka said. "The energy is already there."
The title game was a rematch of what was widely considered the North Jersey Game of the Year in 2021 – a sectional championship won by the Highlanders that was pushed back a week after the unexpected death of longtime Ramapo coach Drew Gibbs. Somehow, the archrivals backed up the hype with a classic encore.
"I wasn't surprised at all with the way this year has turned out," Dario said. "It's exactly how it should have been. We went out in grand fashion just like we did last year."

FRANKLIN LAKES, NJ -- Chatham first-year girls soccer coach Anthony Correale recently saw the Group 3 state rankings that were published a few weeks back and his team was nowhere to be found in the top 10.
"We proved a lot of people wrong about where we should be," Correale said.
That point was backed up on Tuesday night when the Cougars came within 97 seconds of forcing their NJSIAA Group 3 state semifinal vs. Ramapo into overtime. The Raiders won the game, 1-0, when Kate Langenfelder headed in a cross into the box by Abby Hendrickson with 1:37 left in the second half.

Chatham (14-5-1) certainly deserves to be rated among the top four teams in Group 3 since there are now only two teams left playing in the state, Ramapo (18-3) and Cherry Hill West (13-7-3), who will meet Sunday to decide the Group 3 state title.
"No one expected our school to come this far in states and we had a great season," Paige Droner, Chatham senior co-captain, said. "People can now look at Chatham and know we're a great soccer school. It feels good to play soccer at this level."
In the evenly matched battle, Chatham goalie Amelia Sherman was credited with 10 saves and her Ramapo counterpart Madeline Kellogg made nine stops.
Chatham seemed to be playing better and better as the game progressed before Ramapo scored on a counter in the waning minutes. The Cougars still managed to get off a corner kick and a possible chance at a tie before one last clear by Ramapo in the final seconds.
"We were playing really good soccer and it came down to one open player in the box," Droner, the Indiana University commit, said. "She had a great header."
Chatham's banner season included their second straight Morris County Tournament championship and the NJSIAA North Jersey, Section 2, Group 3 championship, the program's second NJSIAA title in three years.
"I told them to keep their heads up, for me they were the better team on the field for most of the game," Correale said. "These things happen in tournaments. When you play that many knock-out games sometimes the best team doesn't always win. I'm upset with the result, but I'm not mad about anything. The girls worked so hard and in the end all I could say was keep your heads up, because I thought they deserved more.
"On a different day, we could go win this whole tournament. You play with the best teams, they can go either way. Different day, we could be in the final. I think we proved a lot this season."

Incoming Class Highlighted By 2022 Junior Player Of The Year, Three All-Americans
BERKELEY – The California men's golf program signed four future Golden Bears to National Letters of Intent on Wednesday, Alex and Marie Shipman Director of Men's Golf Walter Chun announced. The impressive quartet of Sihao Cong (Irvine, Calif.), Ethan Fang (Plano, Texas), Eric Lee (Fullerton, Calif.) and Tyler Lee (Franklin Lakes, N.J.) will arrive on campus ahead of the 2023-24 season next year.
"In my opinion, signing Sihao, Ethan, Eric and Tyler to National Letters of Intent will make this the top-ranked 2023 recruiting class in the country," Chun said. "I know what these young men are capable of, how hard they work, how high their ceilings are and how much they want to compete for a national championship. We're fortunate to have signed these four quality young men, and the Cal Golf community will look forward to their arrival to campus next August."
Highlighting the Bears' incoming signees are Eric Lee and Fang, who are currently ranked No. 1 and 3 by Golfweek in the 2023 class. Lee was named the 2022 American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Rolex Player of the Year last week, becoming the first boys junior from the state of California to earn the honor since 2010.
