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 Hollywood, 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 Hollywood, 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:

HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) - Crews were hard at work all day Thursday after overnight winds, waves, and wet weather affected Hollywood Beach.
In the past, hurricanes and tropical storms have affected Hollywood Beach, but on Thursday, after heavy rainfall impacted parts of South Florida, the scene on the Broadwalk was similar.
7News cameras captured people struggling to cross the Broadwalk as heavy winds pushed water and sand. Tourists in Hollywood Beach had no choice but to make the most of it.
“We are trying to make the best of this weather today,” said Carol Lincoln, who is visiting from Michigan. “I’m thankful it’s not raining.”
Cleanup crews were at the scene to try and get businesses reopened after chairs and tabletops were buried under sand — no match for winds that gusted well over 50 mph.
“We were expecting 30-mile-an-hour winds, but this is crazy,” said Richard Schecher, the manager of Bonny & Read’s Toucan Hideout.
But Schecher knows that strong winds won’t keep customers away for long.
“We get a good share of business when the weather is like this,” he said.
7News cameras captured workers with shovels as they pushed sand off the Broadwalk. Bobcat machinery also assisted with the cleanup effort.
Just down the Broadwalk at Mamacita’s, so much sand blew in that they may not reopen before the weekend.
“We’ve been here for 15 years, through hurricanes. We still haven’t seen stuff like this,” Robert Lopez, the owner of Mamacita’s.
Lynn Nichols, another Michigan visitor, said she’s used to snow, but not South Florida-style storms.
“We kept watching it, and the waves were getting closer. We’re like, ‘Oh, the water’s up by the palm trees,’ and I’m like, ‘Oh!'” she said. “And then it kept coming closer and closer, so yeah, people were walking [and the water was] above your ankles.”
At the Hollywood Beach Golf Course, the green on hole three looked like an island.
Over in Dania Beach, winds reached a speed of 70 mph, causing waves to crash all around a hotel by the sea.
In Fort Lauderdale’s Edgewater community, the water receded Thursday, but it was the second time in one year many of them had to deal with floodwater.
“This is crazy, so I called the emergency management last night when I noticed that the water was about an inch away from my threshold,” said Fort Lauderdale resident, Paul Guerrero.
In Davie, the Bamford Sports Complex and much of the Paradise mobile home community are underwater. Some navigated the roads by canoe, while other residents sloshed through the water, knowing their cars wouldn’t stand a chance.
“I’ve never seen it this bad actually,” said Marco Granados, who was spotted walking through the flood water, Thursday night.
West of Hollywood Beach, crews cleared a palm tree that landed on a home’s roof on Hollywood Boulevard.
Back on the Broadwalk, crews with the city of Hollywood set up orange barriers at beach entry points to prevent any more sand or water from coming up.
Efforts resumed on Friday as crews were seen cleaning up the sand that was swept onto the Broadwalk. They said they would take down the barriers when they knew everything was secure.

Local 10 News Weather: 12/27/23 Evening Edition
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – As areas in Broward County remain under a flood watch until Thursday morning, the conditions didn’t stop beachgoers from enjoying a day at Hollywood Beach on Wednesday.
Local 10 News spoke with visitors from Tennessee and the Orlando area who were looking to get away from the gloomy weather but were greeted with excessive rain and flooding at the beach.
“I got in on Monday and the beach was packed, but now it’s empty,” said Chris Toner, who is visiting from Orlando. “You can’t blame others for not showing up.”
Despite the conditions, a Local 10 News crew was at Hollywood Beach where people were seen jogging, walking and even riding their bikes in the area, not letting the gloomy weather knock them down.
“I would like a little bit of sun today, but this is great,” said another beachgoer.
Other visitors were seen holding on to their clothing while forcing their way through the strong winds as they hurried back to their cars.
High tide also leads to rough surfing conditions, which could keep people chasing waves away from Hollywood Beach.
“I’m a good swimmer, but I’m not that good. I would recommend nobody go,” said Toner.
Patrick Ward, who was visiting from Naples, said the waves in Hollywood are a lot bigger than they are over on the Gulf Coast.
“The beach looks crazy, but a lot of times we do see people windsurfing out there with these waves. So if you are a Floridian, this does not bother you,” said Angela Simeon, a manager at Ocean Alley in Hollywood Beach.
Some drivers in the area found themselves stalling out as storms moving through South Florida brought heavy rainfall and street flooding Tuesday night.
The rain rolled in quickly, inundating highways and surface streets. It proved to be too much for quite a few drivers.
One driver found herself stalled on Northeast 11th Avenue near Commercial Boulevard in Oakland Park.
A series of weather-related stallouts were also reported in Pompano Beach, but the rain receded fairly quickly.
A Local 10 News was in Oakland Park Tuesday evening, where many drivers were seen calling tow trucks after their cars stalled due to the flooding.
AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES IN BROWARD CANCELED WEDNESDAY
Broward County Public Schools announced that they have canceled all after-school activities/operations on Wednesday due to heavy rains and potential flooding in the area.
After-school activities, including field trips, sporting events and other planned night events
All evening classes (Technical Colleges, Community Schools and Adult Centers)
Virtual Town Hall Meeting – panel discussion on disparities and inequities
After-school childcare is not canceled; however, parents are urged to pick up their children as soon as possible.
Regular school operations will resume on Thursday.

Turns out, you can check in any time you like. The Eagles are coming to say goodbye in Florida after all.
After skipping the Sunshine State in the initial tour dates announced in July for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band's farewell tour, the Eagles added six more stops last week, including a March 1, 2024 concert at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida.
Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m., Presales and VIP ticket sales begin Wednesday, November 1 at 10 a.m.
The "Hotel California" band's farewell tour, "The Long Goodbye," marking the end of the group's "miraculous 52-year odyssey," is expected to run through 2025.
"We know how fortunate we are, and we are truly grateful," the band said in a statement. "Our long run has lasted far longer than any of us ever dreamed. But, everything has its time, and the time has come for us to close the circle.
"Most importantly, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for embracing this band and its music. At the end of the day, you are the reason we have been able to carry on for over five decades. This is our swan song, but the music goes on and on.”
The Eagles announce farewell tour:'The time has come for us to close the circle'
The "Long Goodbye" tour started in New York in September and has played eight dates across the country so far. Coming up in 2023 and 2024 are:
More dates may be added.
Presale tickets and VIP packages for the concert at the Hard Rock Live will be available starting Wednesday, Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. local time.
The general on-sale will start Friday, Nov. 3 at 10 a.m. local time. There is an overall 8-ticket limit for the event.
Hard Rock Live, 1 Seminole Way, Hollywood on Friday, Mar. 1, 2024. Shows starts at 7:30 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Steely Dan, longtime contemporaries of the band who will commemorate their own five-decade-plus career, will be part of the tour.
The Eagles — composed of Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit — will be joined onstage, as they have since the 2016 death of founding member Glenn Frey, by Vince Gill and Frey's son, Deacon.
The Eagles just swung through the state with shows in Jacksonville and Tampa in March this year toward the end of their previous show, the "Hotel California 2023 Tour," commemorating their iconic 1976 album.
That 90-concert tour ran for four years (with a break during the pandemic) and grossed around $250 million, according to entertainment data site Pollstar.

Hollywood has expanded its shuttle micro-transit service to portions of the west side with the addition of two electric vehicles, the city announced.
The 4.6 square miles expansion west of Interstate 95 began Sept. 1 and it includes one wheelchair accessible 12-passenger van and one three-passenger sedan.
Operational since early 2019, the Sun Shuttle had already been servicing portions of East Hollywood, downtown and the beach area — providing connectivity to all major hotels, beach attractions, restaurants, parking garages and other public transportation methods like Tri-Rail. In March, the city began a pilot program on the west side to gauge rider demand and it was a success, city spokeswoman Joann Hussey told the Miami Herald.
“The numbers indicated that there was enough ridership to support this program,” she said.
The project’s net costs are approximately $88,000 per month, but are expected to increase to as much as $100,000 per month during peak season — from October to April — as more vehicles are added to keep up with ridership demand, Hussey said. To help offset the costs, the city generates some revenue from advertising placed on the shuttles as well as from ride fares.
Do you want to know more about this transportation service? Here’s what you need to know:

Zone 3, part of a new 6-month pilot program, mostly covers portions west of Florida’s Turnpike.
“During this pilot in Zone 3, the times and routes are expected to change based on ridership data,” Hussey said.
Zone 2 and 3 operating hours:
? Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) - Joe DiMaggio Park in Hollywood was closed for several hours after a crocodile was spotted a little too close for comfort to nearby homes, raising an overwhelming amount of safety concerns among area residents.
A pictures of the scaly intruder show the animal swimming in the park, Sunday afternoon.
Speaking with 7News, area resident Harel Pinhasi described the moment he first spotted the reptile.
“We looked, and I saw a head,” said Pinhasi. “I was just driving around, like, in my golf cart with one of my friends in the park, and then we looked in the water, ’cause we usually just look for, like, fish.”
Pinhasi said he saw the creature at around 12:45 p.m.
“I took a closer look and then saw it, and then I just drove away and just told my mom,” he said. “Pretty scary,” said Pinhasi.
The family called it into authorities.
Residents of the Harbor Islands community were warned about the crocodile through an email, explaining that it “seems to have gained access through The Estates intercoastal seawall…”
“This is not something that we have ever had to worry about in this park,” said nearby resident Sharon Athanasiou. “It’s not a comfortable place to be in anymore.”
On Monday morning, the gates of the park were back open, leading her to believe it was safe to go for a walk.
“I thought I was hallucinating because this croc that was supposed to be gone, was in the water about 2 feet away from me,” said Athanasiou.
She grabbed her dog and took a video, but stopped when she noticed the crocodile was on the move.
“It was going in the direction of where this toddler was and I screamed, ‘Pick up your baby, pick up your baby.'”
The American Crocodile is a federally protected animal. People who live in the area don’t want it harmed, they just wanted it protected in a safer place away from their families.
“He’s a beautiful animal, but he does not belong here with people and children… Come on, you know,” said concerned resident Dina Volovitz. “We’re very scared.”
The reptile was seen slightly moving through the grass of the park and surveillance captured it in the neighborhood as well.
“This will be dangerous because people want to see, you know this thing swims so fast,” continued Volovitz. “I thinkJoe DiMaggio has the responsibility to close the park, it’s a responsibility to us, not only as residents but to the people that want to come here with their kids.”
Even with the warning signs, not all of the gates to the park were closed on Monday, and some said they’re trying to get more answers from state agencies.
“If you don’t put a big sign, it’s really a lack of respect towards the humans that want to take care of their kids and families,” she added. “It seems there has to be a very big concern, or so sad a death for them to come do something about it.”
The crocodile hasn’t been spotted since around 1 p.m. The park was reopened to the public at around 7 p.m.
“I’ll definitely let nature be nature because I have no choice, but I’m not going to let my children walk around here, nor mylittle dog… I wouldn’t let a dog off the leash, make a good dinner,” said another woman at the park.
City of Hollywood officials have notified Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission about the crocodile.
