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 Gladstone, 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 Gladstone, 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 growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits. Some of those benefits include:

Everyone is feeling the pain and the strain with all of the prices going up. The struggles of inflation are affecting everyone and literally everything right now.
Not only are people struggling to pay for everyday items but there are plenty of people trying to plan for a family getaway this summer.
Just think about that, you have kids in school, and they go the entire school year with no breaks, and you’re trying to figure out that summer escape that you and your family deserve.
Unfortunately, many will not take to the roads or the skies because of the insane gas prices.
Couple that with everyday items and it becomes impractical to leave the house. I’m really curious to see if the amount of visitor traffic will start to pick up.
It’s still early in the season and the weather hasn’t been all that great but will we see the uptick.
Affinity did a dive on many of these price increases and great ways to save. They say turn to many of the tools we have at our fingertips including certain apps. Especially when it comes to gas.
"Apps and websites including AAA TripTik Travel Planner, Waze, and MapQuest can help you find the cheapest gas station on the route to your destination. Additionally, Wawa, BPme Rewards, Shell Fuel Rewards, and other gas station chains all offer individual gas savings when at their respective locations."
I've used plenty of apps to help maintain finances and anything you can do to spend less, and have more fun is a huge win for you and the family.
They also discussed some of the items that went up in price, such as coffee example, to items that did not, such as pizza.
The good for you. The Jersey Shore is one of the most diverse travel destinations on the east coast. You can come here to relax and literally do nothing at a minimum spend. You can also go out and party for a week straight.
The great part for us is that we call it home, and can take advantage of this travel destination in our own backyard.

Welcome to the Golfweek’s Best 2022 list of the Top 200 Modern Courses built in or after 1960 in the United States.
Each year we publish many lists, with this Top 200 Modern Courses list among the premium offerings. Also extremely popular and significant are the lists for Top 200 Classic Courses, the Best Courses You Can Play State by State and Best Private Courses State by State.
The hundreds of members of our course-ratings panel continually evaluate courses and rate them based on 10 criteria on a points basis of 1 through 10. They also file a single, overall rating on each course. Those overall ratings are averaged to produce these rankings. The top handful of courses in the world have an average rating of above 9, while many excellent layouts fall into the high-6 to the 8 range.
To ensure these lists are up-to-date, Golfweek’s Best in recent years has altered how the individual ratings are compiled into the rankings. Only ratings from rounds played in the past 10 years are included in the compilations. This helps ensure that any course in the rankings still measures up.
Courses also must have a minimum of 25 votes to qualify for the Top 200 Modern or the Top 200 Classic. Other Golfweek’s Best lists, such as Best Courses You Can Play or Best Private, do not require as many votes. This makes it possible that a course can show up on other lists but not on the premium Top 200 lists.
Each course is listed with its average rating next to the name, the location, the year it opened and the designers. The list also notes in parenthesis next to the name of each course where that course ranked in 2021. Also included with many courses are links to recent stories about that layout.
After the designers are several designations that note what type of facility it is:
• p: private • d: daily fee • r: resort course • t: tour course • u: university • m: municipal • re: real estate • c: casino
* Indicates new to or returning to this list.
Editor’s note: The 2022 Golfweek’s Best Classic Courses list for the top 200 layouts built before 1960 in the U.S. was posted Wednesday, May 25. The Best Courses You Can Play lists and the Best Private Courses lists will follow over the next two weeks.

Full service on the Morris & Essex lines and the Gladstone Branch will not return Monday as NJ Transit officials had hoped after bad weekend weather dropped another tree on the storm battered rail line, this one near Mountain Station in South Orange.
A downed tree resulted in additional damage to the overhead wires along a section of the rail line near Mountain Station, NJ Transit officials said on Sunday.
Morris and Essex Line rail service is suspended in both directions between Broad Street and South Orange due to a downed tree blocking the tracks near Mountain Station. Substitute bus service is in place between South Orange and Broad St. pic.twitter.com/6bb6aAte4j— Morris & Essex Line (@NJTRANSIT_ME) March 12, 2022
That means limited service will continue and the Morris & Essex, M&E, rail line will continue to operate on a modified schedule between South Orange and Penn Station New York and Hoboken on Monday, March 14. That schedule can be found online.
The Gladstone Branch will remain suspended until further notice, officials said.
Train service was cut to 22 towns in three counties after wind and thunderstorms felled a tree in Maplewood on the night of March 7, damaging support structures and tearing down overhead electric wires that power trains.
NJ Transit officials said crews worked around the clock to remove damaged poles and steel supporting structures, replace them and reinstall overhead wires in Maplewood, which is “nearing completion.” But crews had to respond to the most recent damage from Saturdays winter storm
What that means for commuters is those who ride from stations between Hackettstown and Denville should use Montclair-Boonton Line trains. Enhanced service will operate on the Montclair-Boonton Line using a modified schedule that is on line.
M&E and Gladstone Branch tickets and passes will continue to be cross-honored on NJ Transit Raritan Valley Line and Montclair-Boonton Line trains, on NJ Transit buses and private carrier buses.
But that left riders on portions of the M&E line and Gladstone Branch with few or no public transit options, said commuters, who questioned why substitute bus service wasn’t offered to help riders during the almost week long rail outage, specifically between Mount Tabor and Maplewood and for Gladstone Branch passengers.
“In years past, any lengthy work or suspension was compensated by bus service to each station or on discounted fares to travelers, but neither has been provided in the case of both lines’ weather-related damage,” one commuter wrote in an email.
“NJ Transit is offering numerous alternate transportation options for impacted customers along the M&E and Gladstone Branch,” said Jim Smith a spokesman, who highlighted ticket cross honoring and enhanced Montclair-Boonton Line service. “Offering substitute busing would require moving those resources away from existing bus service.
NJ Transit recognizes and regrets the inconvenience that the rail outage has caused to customers, he said.
Another option is private commuter bus service, Boxcar, that has added service to its routes to accommodate displaced rail commuters. Tickets and schedules are available on the Boxcar app, however NJ Transit tickets are not being cross honored.
Boxcar is operating four routes to New York and back. They are:
The Ridgeliner from Berkeley Heights, New Providence and Summit, offering five morning buses between 6 a.m. and 8:20 a.m., and three evening buses departing between 5 p.m. and 6:20 p.m.
The Morris Meteor running between New York and Convent Station, Madison and Chatham has six morning buses, departing between 5:30 and 8:30 a.m. and five returning from the city between 4:45 and 6:45 p.m.
The Millburner, between New York and Short Hills and Millburn, resumes Monday after a five-year hiatus with two morning buses at 6:10 and 8:20 am. and one evening bus departing midtown at 5:50 p.m.
The Raritan Rocket runs between New York and Fanwood, Westfield and Cranford, with two morning buses departing between 6:15 and 7:15 a.m. and two two evening buses departing New York at 5:10 and 6:10 p.m.

NJ Transit is adding more service to the Morris & Essex line and Gladstone Branch that resumed service Tuesday morning after having service shut down to 22 stations last week to fix storm damage.
On March 17 and 18 enhancements will be made to the modified weekday schedules to provide customers with additional trains and direct service to New York and Hoboken on the Gladstone Branch, NJ Transit officials said Wednesday.
The Morris & Essex Line will have additional trains restored to the modified weekday schedule with service at all stations. Modified schedules will be available later Wednesday at the NJ Transit website. Customers should monitor njtransit.com/MorrisEssexUpdate for the latest information.
Customer service ambassadors will be available at Maplewood, South Orange and Newark Broad Street stations to assist customers. Some of the modified service involves changing trains at Board Street, according to the schedule.
Gladstone Branch service will resume to Penn Station New York and Hoboken on a modified schedule. Modified schedules will be available later today on the NJ Transit website.
The modified schedules are in place as crews finish up work to repair storm damage on March 7 that took down a large tree in Maplewood, resulting in extensive damage to the overhead wires and the steel structure that supports the wires. Repairs allowed reopening the line for limited service on Tuesday morning.
Cross-honoring will remain in effect for Morris & Essex (M&E) and Gladstone Branch customers on the Raritan Valley and Montclair-Boonton Lines as well as NJ Transit and private carrier buses.
