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 Hallandale Beach, 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 Hallandale Beach, 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:

Grupo Eco won a rezoning for its planned 12-story office building in Hallandale Beach, the fourth phase of the mixed-use Atlantic Village development on Federal Highway.
The building will have 97,735 square feet of office space on the top five floors, 7,745 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space, and a parking garage with 298 spaces from the ground floor to the seventh floor, according to a city staff memo to the city commission.
The Hallandale Beach City Commission on Wednesday rezoned the half-acre development site at 800-814 North Federal Highway, which raised the limit on building height to 12 stories. Two single-story restaurants, Ocean’s Eleven and Carini’s, previously occupied the now-vacant site, which is adjacent to Jeffrey Soffer’s Big Easy Casino.
Commissioners also passed a resolution approving a design of the 12-story office building with 33 modifications of local redevelopment standards. Most of the modifications involved smaller-than-standard setbacks from rights-of-way on the front, back, and sides of the planned office building.
Hallandale Beach commissioners set six conditions for their approval of the modifications, including Grupo Eco’s payment of a $71,720 sewer impact fee, and $143,816 each for a transportation mitigation fee and a water impact fee.
Other conditions require Grupo Eco to put 14 electric vehicle charging stations on the development site and install new sidewalks and landscaping along Federal Highway, Northeast 8th Street and Atlantic Shores Boulevard.
The developer also is required to construct and maintain a public brick paver plaza on a city-owned parcel within the Atlantic Village 4 office development site, along Atlantic Shores Boulevard. The parcel, on the north side of the property, was deeded to the city by the Florida Department of Transportation “for public purposes,” Vanessa Leroy, director of Hallandale Beach’s department of sustainable development, told commissioners at the meeting.
Atlantic Village 4, LLC, the applicant for the rezoning and the modifications of redevelopment standards, is managed by Alejandro Chaberman, according to state records.
Chaberman, co-founder of Grupo Eco, guided the company’s launch of the Atlantic Village development. Its first phase of construction on a 32,000-square-foot retail and commercial center began in 2016.
Atlantic Village now has two office buildings and more than 70,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, according to the property’s website.

Tropical Storm Nicole has gotten stronger – with scattered showers impacting parts of Florida on midterm Election Day – and is expected to strengthen more before slamming the state’s east coast early Thursday as the first hurricane to strike the United States in November in nearly 40 years.
Hurricane warnings remain in effect Tuesday for parts of Florida ahead of Nicole’s expected landfall early Thursday morning north of West Palm Beach as a Category 1 hurricane with torrential rain and damaging winds, as many across the state continue to endure the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.
“#Nicole is a formidable storm that will have major impacts all along the southeastern U.S. coastline, not only near the center. Coastal flooding, large waves and rip currents will extend from the tip of FL to NC,” the National Weather Service tweeted.
Nicole was very close to hurricane strength Tuesday night, with 70 mph sustained winds, and is expected to become a hurricane – meaning sustained winds of at least 74 mph – overnight. At 10 p.m. ET, it was about 325 miles east of West Palm Beach and moving west-southwest at about 10 mph.
Nicole’s tropical storm-force winds extend 380 miles from the center and are expected to be felt in Florida beginning late Wednesday morning.
Nicole is then due to produce heavy rain that could lead to dangerous storm surge and high winds Wednesday, said Jamie Rhome, the acting director of the National Hurricane Center.
It is projected to be a strong tropical storm or a Category 1 hurricane – with sustained winds of at least 74 mph – by the time it reaches Florida Wednesday evening into Thursday morning, Rhome said Monday in a video briefing posted online.
Up to 7 inches of rain and storm surge that could rise up to 5 feet along the coast, combined with high winds, are mainly forecast for Wednesday evening and Thursday. And because the storm’s track shifted west late Tuesday, a storm surge watch is now in effect for the panhandle and some of the west coast, the center said.
“The storm surge will be accompanied by large and damaging waves. Residents in the warning area should listen to advice given by local officials,” the hurricane center said.
Orlando International Airport will suspend operations as of 4 p.m. Wednesday “until circumstances permit operations resume,” the state’s busiest airport said Tuesday afternoon on Twitter.
Palm Beach and Volusia counties have issued mandatory evacuation orders starting Wednesday morning for some residents. In Palm Beach, the order is in effect from 7 a.m. ET for zones A and B and include barrier islands and low-lying areas, according to a release on the county’s website.
In Volusia County, home to Daytona Beach, the order is in effect Wednesday at 10 a.m., including those east of the intracoastal waterway or in flood-prone areas, all campsites and RV parks and all mobile and manufactured homes.
“Tropical Storm Nicole poses a direct threat to property and life,” County Manager George Recktenwald said on the Volusia County website. “Our infrastructure, especially along the coastline, is extremely vulnerable because of Hurricane Ian’s impacts. We expect further erosion along the beach, along with flooding in areas that were previously flooded by Ian. Residents need to take this storm seriously.”
Brevard County on Tuesday issued an evacuation recommendation starting Wednesday for some residents, including people on the barrier islands, “including areas from Kennedy Space Center south beaches, and Merritt Island,” those in flood-prone areas, mobile and manufactured home residents, and people with special medical needs who are dependent on electricity.
Southeastern Florida is already experiencing some of the highest tides of the year, thanks to this month’s full moon. These tides will be pushed significantly higher by Tropical Storm Nicole’s approach, creating even higher water levels and more beach erosion for coastal communities on the east coast of the state during the next several high tide cycles, according to the National Weather Service.
The large and strengthening storm is creating a steady stream of onshore winds that will only increase as Nicole gets closer, pushing and piling the water on the shoreline, so that coastal flooding and beach erosion will be possible even before Nicole makes landfall.
“These winds, high seas, and surf will combine with high astronomical tides to bring the threat of significant beach erosion around the times of the next several high tide cycles,” said the NWS in Melbourne.
But flooding in the state will not be limited to the immediate coastline, as heavy rainfall will lead to freshwater flooding well inland as well.
The St. John’s River in Florida still remains at Moderate Flood Stage from Hurricane Ian. Nicole’s passage and the resulting rainfall is expected to cause the water to rise once again on this slow-moving river, creating flooding concerns once again.
“Levels are forecast to reach Major Flood Stage at 4.0 feet once again on Friday, remaining steady into the weekend. A higher rise is possible depending on rainfall totals as well as the northerly wind surge leading to a backup of water on Lake George,” the NWS said.
More than 5 million people are under a storm surge warning from North Palm Beach, Florida, north to Altamaha Sound, Georgia, including the mouth of the St. Johns River to Georgetown.
The storm is not expected to intensify rapidly like Ian did in late September before killing at least 120 of people in Florida and destroying communities still reeling from the destruction. No hurricane has hit the US in November since Hurricane Kate struck Florida as a Category 2 in 1985.
“We’re not forecasting a major hurricane,” Rhome said. “Again, not an Ian situation, but still a potentially impactful system.”
Nearly 2 million people are now under a hurricane warning that extends from Boca Raton to the Flagler-Volusia County line; a hurricane watch runs north from there to Ponte Vedra Beach.
Nearly 15 million people are under a tropical storm warning – with conditions expected in the zone within 36 hours – from Hallandale Beach, Florida, north to Altamaha Sound, Georgia, plus Lake Okeechobee in southern Florida. And along the state’s west coast – from north of Bonita Beach to the Ochlockonee River – places slammed by Ian are now under tropical storm watches.
A tropical storm watch was issued Tuesday for north of Altamaha Sound in Georgia to South Santee River in South Carolina, and a storm surge watch was issued from the Savannah River to the South Santee River in South Carolina and from the Suwannee River to the Ochlockonee River in Florida.
A storm surge watch is in effect on the west coast along the Florida panhandle from the Ochlockonee River to Indian Pass, the hurricane center said late Tuesday.
The mayor of Miami-Dade County urged residents to prepare for the storm.
“Residents and visitors should monitor the forecast and make sure their storm kit is up-to-date,” Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said online. “We’re taking all needed precautions to prepare for potential flooding and power outages.”
Miami-Dade County officials are not expecting the storm to impact Election Day, Levine Cava said.
CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller contributed to this report.

POMPANO BEACH - Broward beaches took a beating during Hurricane Nicole Wednesday. Relentless pounding waves stripped beaches of sand causing widespread erosion.
Charles Dube saw it when he stepped outside his door Thursday and onto the south end of Pompano Beach.
"The waves were intense Wednesday night. I lost at least 75 feet of sand," he said.
On Thursday, Broward Beach Program Manager Jacob Rice traveled from Hallandale Beach up to Pompano Beach with a crew to document the erosion on the more than 20 miles of beaches in the county.
"The south end below Port Everglades appeared to be hit the worst," he said.
After a full assessment is done, Rice said the county will offer up solutions for the various municipalities. "It could be a renourishment project, a dune grant or an Army Corps of Engineers project," Rice said.
The Army Corps is still working on a massive beach renourishment project in Broward, but already much of the tons of sand trucked into Pompano Beach from NE 16th Street north to the Hillsboro inlet has been washed out to sea.
"I moved here 15 years ago and saw what a problem erosion was," says wildlife and marine biologist Kristen Hoss.
Hoss is the executive director of the Youth Environmental Alliance (YEA). The Alliance is a nonprofit that focuses on restoration and recreational opportunities for anyone interested in helping the environment no matter the age or ability level.
One of their efforts is dune and mangrove restoration in partnership with Broward cities.
For nearly 10 years they've been working on creating dunes on Broward beaches. Sand dunes provide natural coastal protection against storm surges and high waves, preventing or reducing coastal flooding and structural damage.
"The state of Florida says if you renourish beaches, you must put dunes to keep the sand in place," Hoss said.
Environmental educator Sean Doyle is on a mission to empower communities to understand we can all play a part in trying to keep sand on the beach.
"It's something simple as putting a plant to lock in the sand," he says.
Joan Murray is an award-winning reporter who joined CBS Miami in August 2001, shortly before the 9/11 terror attacks. She was among the first to report the South Florida connection to the terrorists.

A developer wants to build an apartment complex with a ground-floor preschool in Hallandale Beach.
Star Holdings Management, managed by Raphael Ammar in Hallandale Beach, filed plans with city officials to develop the 1.26-acre site at 106, 116, 120 and 124 S.E. 4th Ave. It currently has two small apartment buildings, but they would be replaced to make way for the development.
Totaling 117,010 square feet in five stories, the project would feature a 17,000-square-foot school for Nana’s Preschool on the ground floor, 63 apartments and 130 parking spaces. There would be 2,300 square feet of indoor amenities on the second floor and a pool deck on the third floor. The preschool would have an interior courtyard with a playground.
The apartments would range from 925 to 1,190 square feet. There would be three one-bedroom units and 60 two-bedroom units.
According to the application, the project would cost $26 million to develop.
“The property is an optimum site for a mixed-use development as the preschool will provide nursery, childcare and food service for the young, as well as employment for childcare and clinical personnel,” the developer stated in the application. “Those employed can lease and live next door to their place of employment, walk to restaurants and supermarkets, and other retailers located east and on Hallandale Beach Boulevard, and north and south on Federal Highway.”
Attorney Alan S. Rosenthal, who represents the developer in the application, couldn’t be reached for comment. The project was designed by Miami-based IDEA Architects.
The developer assembled the property between 2017 and 2021 for a combined $2.6 million
Nana’s Preschool is currently located at 704 E. Hallandale Beach Blvd.
There’s been a wave of redevelopment in Hallandale Beach, mostly with multifamily. More people are moving to the city because it’s near the beach and attractions such as Gulfstream Park and the Aventura Mall.

Consider Shell Bay a meeting of the minds between two top residential firms and an iconic resort company. From real estate development firms Witkoff and PPG, in partnership with Auberge Resorts Collection, Shell Bay in Miami Beach will set a new standard of luxury, resort-like living in South Florida.
Located in Hallandale Beach, just north of Miami Beach, The Residences at Shell Bay is a fully gated community with a private golf club, The Shell Bay Club; a tennis center; pickleball and padel courts; a 48-slip private yacht club; and a private members’ Clubhouse with a spa and fitness center. There will be 108 residences over 20 stories with one- to four-bedroom floor plans. There will also be an exclusive collection of penthouse homes with private outdoor spaces and plunge pools in select residences.
The residences will feature open-concept layouts and have wraparound terraces with views of the golf course, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows and ten-foot-high ceilings. The developers enlisted Kobi Karp Architecture and Interior Design, interior design firm AvroKO and landscape architect Nievera Williams for the project. The renowned firms are working together to create contemporary, upscale living using only the highest-quality materials, finishes and design style.
Interior features include private and semi-private elevator entries, solid European doors, gourmet kitchens, spacious walk-in closets, valet and service entries, a custom-designed furniture package, climate-controlled storage space and more. Residents will also have access to in-residence butler services, a private porte-cochère separate from the hotel and secure parking with electric vehicle charging stations. There’s a dedicated resident’s lobby so residents and resort guests never overlap. Other amenities include roof deck pools, an orchid garden, dog-walking trail, entertainment lounge, co-working spaces, a wine tasting room, event space, children’s play area, and more. There’s also an emphasis on outdoor recreation and fitness, including a beach club and water sports offerings.
“Shell Bay offers an unprecedented opportunity to experience an elite lifestyle that cannot be found anywhere else in the greater Miami area,” says Alex Witkoff, executive vice president of development at Witkoff. “Never before has there been an opportunity to create a curated enclave on 120 premium acres near the ocean in the Miami region.”
For avid golfers who love the South Florida lifestyle, but don’t have access to top-notch facilities in Miami, The Residences at Shell Bay brings golf to your backyard. This course is the first new golf course in Miami in 25 years. There is a 7,250-yard championship golf course designed by Greg Norman and a 12-acre practice facility with a nine-hole par-three course. Norman designed the course to “test every club in your bag,” with features including sweeping sand-belt-style bunkers, contoured greens and immaculately conditioned fairways. While the residences are set for completion in 2025, the golf club will open in 2023.
Auberge Resorts Collection will also manage a new boutique resort on the grounds. Residents get access to resort-managed in-residence housekeeping and dining, as well. There will be a dedicated Director of Residences to ensure every need is taken care of, just as if you’re staying in a hotel. Auberge manages dozens of other luxury properties around the world, including Hotel Jerome in Aspen, Colorado; Blue Sky in Park City, Utah; Auberge du Soleil in Napa Valley, California; and many more. Auberge also manages hotels with residential components in Telluride, Napa Valley and Los Cabos, to name a few.
“Shell Bay fills a void in the market for the most discerning lifestyle enthusiast seeking a strong investment opportunity while being able to indulge in the highest quality private members’ club amenities and world-class resort living,” says Ari Pearl, founder and CEO of PPG Development. “Shell Bay residents are individuals who seek the best of the best in leisure destinations and want to enjoy a lifestyle on par with the finest resort communities around the world.”
