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 Hope, 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 Hope, 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:

Rutgers tuition and student fees will rise 2.9% next year, far below the inflation rate but higher than the previous year’s hike. The board of governors on Tuesday approved the increase as part of the $5.1 billion 2022-23 budget.
Under the new budget, in-state arts and sciences undergraduates in New Brunswick will pay $16,263 a year in tuition and fees, minus financial aid and scholarships. In Rutgers-Newark the bill will be $15,648 and $16,112 in Rutgers-Camden. Almost three-quarters of students receive financial aid, with the average New Brunswick student paying 48% of the published costs, Newark students paying 44%, and Camden students paying 39%, university officials said.
University President Jonathan Holloway said rising inflation and pandemic-related costs made budget-setting difficult this year, “so we have to walk the tightrope.”
Holloway said the tight budget reflects the defunding of higher education, “a problem not of our making.” He said the university needed to lobby the governor and state legislature for more funds.
“We are trying to meet the costs of running a first-rate state university,” he said, adding that he was sympathetic to students who had spoken in opposition to tuition hikes. The board’s ability to hold the increases to 2.9% — rather than 5% to 7%, reflecting inflation —“speaks to how we do care about everybody,” he said.
David Moore, the chief budget officer, said over 77% of the new budget will be spent on student instruction, research, public service, and patient care; 15.2% on administration, operations, and maintenance; almost 5% on housing and dining operations and student transportation; and 2.7% on athletics.
Three lecturers who spoke before the Board of Governors said salaries for adjunct professors are less than 1% of the budget, even though they teach a third of student courses. They asked President Holloway to allow the unions representing adjunct and regular professors to merge. Holloway said university attorneys are reviewing the matter.
Professor Paul O’Keefe also spoke on adjunct professors’ behalf, saying he was shocked to learn that part-time lecturers and adjuncts with similar teaching loads do not get benefits and a livable salary.
“The entire system depends on hyper-exploitation,” he said. “I hope you could indicate your support for providing equal pay for equal work and support our units’ desire to merge and bargain collectively.”

United Community Corp. and the Weequahic Park Sports Authority are teaming up to host a three-on-three basketball tournament and resource fair to benefit the youth of Newark and their families on Saturday, June 25 at Weequahic Park.
The basketball tournament is open to youth ages 11 to 17. The event itself is open to the community. All winning team members will be awarded a Sony PlayStation 5. Check-in starts at 10 a.m. and the tournament tips off at 11 a.m. The tournament features two brackets based on ages (11 - 14 and 15 - 17). Teams must pre-register by Thursday, June 23 by contacting Community-Based Violence Intervention Program Director Charles Mainor at [email protected] or by calling 201-522-8848.
While basketball will be the focus of the event sponsored by Amerigroup, Mainor hopes that bringing the city’s youth together can be the first step in starting a conversation about violence in Newark.
“We are going to make it fun for the youth to learn. They may not even understand the help they are receiving at the moment,” he said. “Even though it is a basketball game, that is just the hook to get them here. Once we have them, UCC Executive Director Craig Mainor and the Weequahic Park Sports Authority will talk to these kids about what we have to offer them.”
Mainor’s Community-Based Violence Intervention program operates to prevent violence among the City’s youth as part of the larger statewide Community-Based Violence Intervention program funded by the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General.
“We want to show the youth that someone cares about them and make them comfortable to come to talk to somebody,” Mainor said.
In addition to the basketball tournament, over 20 vendors will be attending the event to provide necessary resources to the community. United Community Corp. will have vendors promoting food assistance, energy bill assistance, and rental/mortgage assistance.
UCC is still seeking vendor participation. Any service vendors interested in attending can contact Mainor at [email protected] or by calling 201-522-8848.
“I’m hoping that we can reach that family that is in need but afraid to ask,” Mainor said. “We hope that family can find a vendor or vendors to provide the services they truly need. I’m certain that there are people that can benefit from the services that will be there Saturday. We want to be in a position to reach the community and help the community.”
According to UCC, the Weequahic Park Sports Authority “played a key role in successfully planning such a large-scale event with so many benefits to the community.”
“This collaboration is important because Weequahic Park Sports Authority deals with the younger youth,” Mainor said. “The youth are a main focus of the violence that is currently happening. They have a close relationship with the youth and we have the services available to help the youth.”

You cannot stop the New York Yankees, you can only hope to contain them.
Want to bet on MLB?
“I think the Yankees win the World Series and look, I know a lot of people are going to say, ‘Yeah, but look at the Mets with (Jacob) deGrom and (Max) Scherzer, and look at the Dodgers’ pitching, and if Milwaukee can get healthy.’ I understand all that. But what we have to understand is that the Yankees’ pitching rotation right now is better than anyone in the sport. And I don’t think you can deny what Nestor Cortes and Luis Severino and Jameson Taillon and Jordan Montgomery are doing on a nightly basis. This team can out-hit you, out-field you. They can out-pitch you, they can out-close you, and they’ve got it all going on in the biggest market in Major League Baseball. Right now, they are the team to beat. There is no doubt about it, and it’s by a distance. You know, normally we don’t look at baseball and say, ‘Well this team is much better than everybody else.’ But in 2022, that has been the case of the New York Yankees.”
