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 Greenacres, FL 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 Greenacres, FL 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:

GREENACRES, Fla. — A Palm Beach County landmark is closing its doors at the end of August. The Atlantis Skateway in Greenacres is calling it quits after 47 years of serving up good times and great fun.
Many folks like Michelle Bonan are putting on a pair of skates for one more go-around.
Bonan remembers fondly walking through the doors of the Atlantis Skateway, lacing up a pair of skates and hitting the floor.
"It was a great experience. I came with a couple of friends from school," Bonan said. "I had never been here before, and it was great."
Throughout the years, she continued to show up to skate.
"If I wasn't in school, my mother would drop me off here until it closed," she said.
She became friends with the owner and a lifelong friend with the owner's daughter, Britni Murphy. She said it hurts to know that the place is closing.
"I was very, very, sad. I was actually heartbroken," Bonan said.
Atlantis Skateway opened in Greenacres in 1975.
"Back in the early 80s, late 70s, we'd have 500 a night and back then everybody was skating," Murphy said.
For the past two decades, Murphy has run the place. She said through the years interest in skating ebbed and flowed. However, recently her family made the hard decision to close the skate center.
"With the cost of business these days, it's tough, much tougher," Murphy said. "Insurance, taxes, all that business stuff, it was definitely a difficult decision."
Over the years, Murphy and her family have met some wonderful people and families. She said it's the relationships she'll miss the most.
"We hope that we touched many families through the years and have made many friends, and family through the years," Murphy said. "I may be an only child, but I have lots of brothers and sisters thanks to this building."
The last day for the Atlantis Skateway is Aug. 20, but they're going out with a bang by being open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

GREENACRES, Fla. — A local Cuban artist used his talents to create a wall mural in Greenacres. This was a collaboration effort with the city as they've launched an initiative to display art in public places.
The mural is painted on the outside of wall of the racquetball courts, and city leaders tell me they hope it'll improve the visual quality of public spaces.
This colorful mural at Samuel J. Ferreri Community Park off Jog Road was done by local artist Anthony Hernandez.
"I was born in Cuba, raised in Chicago, and living here in West Palm for about 24 to 25 years now," Hernandez said.
It's been a passion of his since he was a kid.
"As long as I can remember, I think my mother said that drawing and painting kept me calm," Hernandez said.
The mural is the first of its kind in the city of Greenacres. Hernandez said he hopes it'll bring out more people to the park.
"You have a couple of people while I was doing the mural, they would always come in the morning and see my progress. So I decided to paint their silhouettes there. There's a lady with a dog over there, and she would come here every morning and see how I was doing, so it's kind of homage to the people in the park," Hernandez said.
The mural is part of the city's new initiative of art in public places.
"We went through a visioning and strategic action plan and found that art in public places really does add to the quality of life of residents," said City Manager Andrea McCue.
“Art in public places was a vision of mine when I took office and I’m thankful we were able to start this program. My hope is that we continue to enrich the lives of our residents," said Mayor Joel Flores.
Mccue said the mural represents the diversity in the community as well as those who love the outdoors, and a girl as it's focal point.
"That represents community, family and children. There's an interaction. The girl who is actually on the wall will be tapping the shoulder of the person sitting there. So, like i said, it is an interactive piece," McCue said.
The brush strokes don't stop here as the city is planning to do more on blank spaces.

GREENACRES, Fla. —
Dave Cohen walked into his Greenacres kitchen carrying two trays full of pill bottles.
“This is what I go through once a month,” he said, as he started counting out his daily pills.
“Right here, just in the morning, I take 12 pills,” he said. “That’s just in the morning.”
And that is who Cohen is now. The person he wants to be is the Zumba instructor and professional magician he used to be.
But the medical challenges Cohen has faced are overwhelming, to say the least.
Your Neighborhood: Local coverage from WPBF 25 News
It started in 2009.
“I started out with getting leukemia,” Cohen said. “Came back in 2010, and I got a bone marrow transplant. I had brain surgery. After that, I had a heart attack with a triple bypass. I still have fluid on my left lung. Just recently, in August, I had another heart attack."
Cohen said his heart only works at around 15%.
“I feel like Mike Tyson took a couple cheap shots at me,” Cohen said.
His wife, Stacia Al-Qabandi Cohen, held his hand as he described his conditions.
“I turn around and cry my eyes out and then turn back and, ‘OK, honey,’” she said. “I’m his biggest cheerleader.”
But Cohen said his prognosis is actually pretty good. There are pills to help him cope and machines to help him breathe. The problem is paying for all of it.
Around the country: National coverage from WPBF 25 News
Cohen said insurance only covers so much, and the medicine is so expensive.
“Some pills are 500 (dollars). Some are 400. Some are 300,” Cohen said.
Friends have set up a GoFundMe account to help the Cohens pay the bills.
They’re also holding a Zumba fundraiser on Oct. 16 at District Community Studio at the Mall at Wellington Green from 2 to 4 p.m.
A community is hoping to help Cohen get his life back.
“He’s got a quirky sense of humor and a great outlook on life,” Al-Qabandi Cohen said as she kissed her husband.
“I want to get back to performing magic shows,” Cohen said. “I want to get back to teaching Zumba classes with my wife.”
“It’s what I pray for every night,” Al-Qabandi Cohen said. “I pray every night for him, for his health.”

GREENACRES, Fla. — Publix has purchased a Greenacres shopping plaza that it currently anchors.
JLL Capital Markets announced last week that it has closed the $56.5 million sale of River Bridge Centre to the Lakeland-based supermarket chain.
Opened in 1986 and renovated in 2005, the shopping center at Forest Hill Boulevard and Jog Road is already home to Publix. Other businesses there include Ace Hardware, Chipotle, Crunch Fitness, Pizza Hut and Ross Dress for Less.
Publix spokeswoman Maria Brous did not immediately reply to an email seeking comment about the sale, but the South Florida Business Journal, which first reported the transaction, said the supermarket chain has a history of buying out its landlords.
"Opportunities to acquire grocery-anchored retail centers in South Florida continue to be in high demand from investors," Danny Finkle, of JLL Capital Markets, said in a news release. "The strength of the retail fundamentals driven by strong population and employment growth, as well as the barriers to entry for new retail supply, are driving strong rental rate growth and make this one of the best positioned retail markets in the country."
City Manager Andrea McCue said any additional revenue as a result of the sale will benefit the city.
"It will just go towards the city's general fund to offset increasing costs that we're experiencing as the city grows," McCue said. "Based on the 2020 census, the city has grown to almost 44,000 residents from 39,000 residents, so we — absolutely — any revenue we can use to offset our expenses will be a benefit to our residents."
According to JLL Capital Markets, the property also has nine outparcels, two of which were included in the sale.
Whether or not the tenants' rent will increase now that Publix is the new owner has yet to be seen.
"We haven't heard that," McCue said. "We would hope, understanding that they are long-term tenants, that they'll continue to support those tenants, understanding they've been there for a long time and, you know, want to continue to be good partners with them and then hopefully continue to be good partners with the city."
McCue said another fast-food franchise like Chick-fil-A will be built in the plaza as well.
