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 Park, 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 Park, 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:

Read below for what Loren Long, Franklin Township Board of Education candidate would like voters to know.
How long have you lived in town/area and in what neighborhood?
I have lived in Franklin Township for 9 years. My wife and I purchased our home in Franklin because of the diversity, the community, and low taxes!!!!!!!
What is your educational/professional background?
I have a bachelor's degree in political science from Kean University. I have an extensive history in public service to include volunteer EMT, 911 dispatcher, and most recently law enforcement. In addition, I was a volunteer football coach for several years.
Do you have children/family members in the schools?
My wife has been a public school teacher for 10 plus years. We have school age children.
Why are you running for office?
I'm running for the board of education because I feel some of the board decisions have not been in the best interest of the children. For example , a decision was made to exclude non-public school children from participating in public school sports . This was a change from prior years and serves no purpose other than to punish the children. In addition, I believe some of the controversial and political curriculum decisions have been made without parent involvement. Lastly, the decision to go remote for such an extended period of time and the mask mandates, inspired me to take this journey.
If elected or re-elected, what is the first thing you plan to do?
I would like a comprehensive curriculum review with parents, to explore some of the more controversial decisions of the previous board. I also would like to review where our tax money is going. When I moved to Franklin it was affordable. My taxes have increased significantly, and the schools are a significant portion. While I believe in providing our students and teachers with all the resources they need for success, routine review of spending is responsible government.
What type of classes do you think should be added to the district’s curriculum?
I believe more of an emphasis should be placed on learning languages, specifically mandarin. South Brunswick employs a policy where their middle school students are exposed to Latin, Spanish, and French which allows the student to choose the language that best suits them. I believe this is a program I would try to implement in Franklin.
What type of classes do you think should be removed from the curriculum?
Sexual education in k-5 is extremely divisive and inappropriate. I do not understand the need to expose young children to some of the things this board has approved. I believe children should learn math, science, english, social studies, languages. There is nothing controversial about these topics, and this is what I send my children to school for.
What are your thoughts on school safety?
From my experience as a law enforcement officer, I have received extensive training in active shooter response, and policy. As such, I have a strong understanding of school safety. As a BOE member I would be proactive, and aggressive about protecting our children.
Name two of your go-to places in town for fun?
I love to take my children to Colonial Park. We love to fish the brook, ride bikes, and enjoy the splash park and playground.Additionally, as an avid long distance runner, I enjoy my weekly runs through the park.
My children and I also enjoy mountain biking and hiking in 6-Mile Run. We consider this one of the greatest trails in the state.
What other issues do you think are important in the school district right now?
I feel there is a need to differentiate our district from others by offering something that other districts do not. I believe a strong language program from pre-k through 12th grade would make our district stand out. In addition, I believe parents need to be fully informed about the changes to curriculum the current board and the state have approved.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State will look to continue one of its longest win streaks in program history against a singular opponent on Saturday.
The Nittany Lions (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten) will travel to Piscataway, N.J., in their last road game of the regular season, where they will face a reeling Rutgers (4-6, 1-6) team that has lost three straight contests, including most recently by a 27-21 margin at Michigan State.
Penn State, meanwhile, is coming off its first shutout of the season, a 30-0 victory against Maryland. The win propelled the Nittany Lions to a No. 11 ranking in the latest AP poll.
As Penn State seeks to earn its third victory against a Big Ten East opponent in as many weeks and 16th consecutive win against the Scarlet Knights, here’s five things to know about Rutgers:
During his Tuesday press conference, James Franklin made it a point of emphasis that Rutgers’ offense will go through running back Kyle Monangai and that it’ll be crucial that the Nittany Lions’ defense keeps him in check.
“I think he’s really playing good football right now,” Franklin said. “I remember going and scouting him, we were actually going to scout another running back, and this guy just kept showing up. I remember coming back and saying, ‘That’s a really good running back there.’”
Monangai’s statistics aren’t particularly impressive, as he’s rushed for two touchdowns and 391 yards on 90 carries, which is good for a 4.3 yards per attempt average. Still, he’s the Scarlet Knights’ leading rusher and is fresh off his best game of the season.
In Rutgers’ loss to the Spartans, Monangai galloped for a season-high 162 yards on 24 attempts. He also caught three passes out of the backfield. The Scarlet Knights will look to get Monangai involved early and often against a Penn State front seven that has turned stout the last two weeks.
A lot of Aron
Aron Cruickshank has returned from injury with his finest season as a Scarlet Knight. The former Wisconsin transfer suffered a season-ending knee injury in Rutgers’ game against the Badgers last fall.
This year, he’s come back as the Scarlet Knights’ leading option for their passing attack. He’s at the top of the team in catches and receiving yards with 40 and 362, respectively, and he’s also the team’s punt and kick returner.
Cruickshank hasn’t been the Big Ten’s most prolific receiver by any means, but he’s come back from injury as a “difference maker” for Rutgers’ offense, according to Franklin.
Working with Wimsatt
Earlier in the season, Rutgers was operating with as many as three quarterbacks, unsure as to which one was the right answer for head coach Greg Schiano’s offense. Former four-star recruit Gavin Wimsatt has taken over in lieu of other options like former starter Noah Vedral and Evan Simon, the Scarlet Knights’ leader in passing attempts this season.
Wimsatt provided a jolt for Rutgers’ offense last Saturday, throwing for two touchdowns and completing 20 of his 34 passes for 236 yards. It was the most passing yards a Rutgers quarterback had since a 27-10 loss to Iowa, when Simon threw for a clean 300 yards but tossed three interceptions.
Wimsatt didn’t impress the prior two weekends, when he completed a combined 20 of 46 passes for 234 yards and one touchdown against four interceptions. Still, he’s early in his career and comes with the pedigree of being the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback nationally in his recruiting class by Rivals.
Rutgers punter Adam Korsak is 27th in the nation in average yards per punt, which is just ahead of Penn State punter Barney Amor. But Franklin is fearful of Korsak’s wealth of abilities; the Melbourne, Australia, native grew up playing Australian rules football before training with a pair of former NFL specialists in Nathan Chapman and John Smith.
“Their punter is, I think, one of the more impressive players that we’ve played this year, regardless of position,” Franklin said. “This guy is one of those Aussie punters that can do it rolling to his right, rolling to his left, traditional from the pocket, he’ll run with it if you’re not containing him. He’ll hold on to the ball so the coverage units can cover down, pin you deep.”
Korsak, who has been playing for Rutgers since 2018, has been a frequent member of watch lists for the Ray Guy Award, but he has yet to win the coveted honor for punters. Either way, Franklin is aware of the challenges Korsak could present for the Nittany Lions come Saturday.
“They’re not always the big beautiful spiraling, high hang-time punts,” Franklin said. “A lot of times they’re line-drive, low ones that hit the ground and run. But he is a difference maker and a problem.”
Temple transfer and defensive back Christian Braswell has been a big pickup for the Scarlet Knights. After three seasons with the Owls, Braswell is in his first year with Rutgers and has saved the best of his college career for the 2022 campaign.
Braswell leads the team in interceptions with three and is also second on the team in pass break-ups with six. He’s six spots and 49 tackles behind linebacker Deion Jennings for the team lead, but Braswell has chipped in 30 stops from the secondary.
Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford will have to be wary of throwing in Braswell’s direction, as he’s yet to record an interception since he snagged one in an Oct. 22 victory against Indiana.

WEST CALDWELL, NJ -- It's another week, and another undefeated opponent for the Caldwell football team.
The Chiefs, carrying a state-leading 26-game winning streak, will play unbeaten Westwood in the NJSIAA Group 2 state semifinals Saturday at 2 p.m. at Franklin High School in Somerset.
Last year, after Caldwell defeated Hanover Park in the Section 2, Group 2 championship game, the Chiefs moved on to play Jefferson in the North Region Group 2 final at MetLife Stadium the next weekend.

Last Saturday, Caldwell ousted previously unbeaten Newton, 35-7, in the Section 2, Group 2 final, but this year, instead of moving directly on to another championship game, there is an extra round of playoffs. So, while Saturday afternoon's game against Westwood is for the North Region, Group 2 crown, there will then be another game the week after Thanksgiving for the overall Group 2 state championship, with the Caldwell-Westwood winner playing against the survivor of the Central Jersey/South Jersey game between Rumson and Willingboro.
Westwood lost, 35-0, to Caldwell in the sectional semifinals last season. But this year's Westwood team (11-0) has shut out six opponents and comes into this weekend's game off a 21-20 victory over previously unbeaten Rutherford in the Section 1, Group 2 championship game.
"Westwood is an outstanding football team. They are another undefeated team, and you don't go 11-0 by accident," Caldwell's first-year head coach Todd Romano said "They have an explosive offense with some dynamic athletes. They play fast and aggressive defense. They are a great program and they are very well-coached. They are the exact team you expect to see in a North Group 2 Regional Final."
Westwood junior quarterback Robbie Carcich has passed for 1,200 yards and rushed for nearly 1,000 yards, too. The Bergen County team also has a 1,000-yard rusher in RB Jack Dugan (1,038 yards, 22 TDs).
But Caldwell senior QB Luke Kurzum, who has guided the Chiefs to two sectional championship and one regional title, is fully recovered now from a mid-season injury and was clicking as efficiently as ever last week, when he completed 12 of 13 passes for 190 yards and two TDs against Newton. Kurzum has passed for 1,518 yards, 15 touchdowns and four interceptions in 134 throws this season.
Junior RB Joey Marinello has 938 rushing yards and 13 rushing TDs for the Chiefs, and senior slotback Harry Boland can attack a defense from multiple spots; he has scored 25 TDs this season--16 on the ground, seven on receptions, one on a defensive fumble return, and one on a kickoff return. Senior wideout Lucas Lattimer (32 receptions, 21 yards per catch, six TDs) is also a tremendous receiver.
Senior defensive linemen Thomas Cader and Mike Fano were among the standouts last week who helped Caldwell put the brakes on Newton's vaunted running game.
"Our team has navigated the first few rounds of the playoffs with a lunch-pail mentality," Romano said. "They simply show up to work every day with laser focus on preparing for the opponent. We tell them all the time, pressure is felt by the unprepared. We will be prepared week to week, and that has been our process all season long."
Although there was plenty of jubilation after Caldwell defeated Newton and the fans joined in the celebration, in the immediate moments following the Chiefs' sectional victory last weekend, their reaction was notably muted.
"The mood was definitely business-like at the conclusion of the game," Romano said. "We were happy for what we achieved last Friday, but nobody in our program is satisfied. These players simply want more."
