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 Little Ferry, 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 Little Ferry, 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 there is an increased concentration of growth hormone by the pituitary gland, there are positive benefits to the body. Some benefits include:

The intense rainstorm that hit New Jersey on Sunday night has caused major flooding, power outages, and school closures all over the state with some areas receiving over 5 inches of rain.
Thankfully, the rain is expected to stop for most of the state by the late afternoon and the high winds are supposed to slow down throughout the night, according to National Weather Service meteorologist James Tomasini.
However, just because the rain will stop does not mean the flooding will immediately disappear as major rivers in North Jersey have not yet reached their peak and the streams that run into them are still rapidly flowing.
Larger rivers typically take longer to crest since water runs into them from other tributaries such as creeks, smaller rivers, or coastal bodies of water.
According to U.S. Geological Survey's Water Watch, the Passaic River may not crest until late Tuesday night or even early Wednesday morning and is predicted to peak at 22 feet.
The Passaic River in Pine Brook reached 19.17 feet as of 11:15 a.m. on Monday morning, surpassing its minor flood stage level of 19 feet. This water level is between 76% and 90% higher than normal.
The Passaic River's most recent recorded crest was 20.11 feet on April 9, 2022, and the highest historic crest was 24.12 feet on Aug. 30, 2011, following Hurricane Irene.
The Rockaway River is expected to crest in Boonton by 11 p.m. on Tuesday night at 6.9 feet. As of 10 a.m. on Monday the river was at 5 feet.
The most recent recorded crest was on April 8, 2022, when the river hit 6.82 feet and the highest historic crest was 9.73 feet on Aug. 29, 2011, also following Hurricane Irene.
The Hackensack River does not yet have a crest prediction but was up to 7.49 feet in New Milford at 11 a.m., surpassing its flood threshold of 6 feet.
A bit farther South, the Hackensack River was reportedly causing some roads to flood near South Hackensack, according to Captain Bill Sheehan of the Hackensack Riverkeepers.
"I drove through towns like Moonachie and Little Ferry without any problems, but when I got to South Hackensack it was pretty badly flooded. There was a lot of water. Everybody was being very cautious about trying to drive through it and it slowed everything down a bit," said Sheehan.
According to Sheehan, the lower half of the Hackensack River is affected by the tides, so, since there is a huge storm surge coming in from the ocean and high tide peaked just after noon, the water is being pushed up the river causing flooded roads.
While the rain may be slowing down, minor flooding could continue in some areas. Be vigilant, keep an eye on flood watches and warnings, and do not drive around road blocks or through areas of deep water.
"If you can't see where you are going, don't go through there," said Sheehan. "The only reason I was able to get through South Hackensack was because you could still see the yellow lines in the middle of the road meaning that the water wasn't that deep. If you can't see the yellow lines, you should turn around and take another route."

LITTLE FERRY — District officials are preparing to ask the community to support funding a new middle school in place of Washington School, which will be demolished later this year.
Fencing surrounds the 109-year-old brick elementary school, and workers have been inside the building, removing asbestos, cleaning out classrooms and doing necessary sewer and electrical work to prepare it for demolition.
Residents and students earlier this month took pictures and shared memories to say goodbye to the school before the fencing was put up.
After delays in the bidding process, which school officials hoped would be underway this summer, the borough Board of Education awarded a bid in August to the Yannuzzi Group for $595,000 out of the district’s capital reserve fund for the project.
“We’re really excited for this next step in the process,” said Matthew Perrapato, the schools superintendent. “We’re moving forward, and without any major setbacks, before the new year, the site will be cleared.”
Washington School closed in June 2018 due to its deteriorating condition. The district had already spent more than $130,000 on emergency repairs when officials learned that it would take millions more to fix the building.
The school was severely damaged during Superstorm Sandy, which flooded the school's gym, five classrooms and a computer lab with 4 feet of water. Nike funded the cost of a new waterproof gym floor, and hundreds of thousands of dollars was spent on repairs to reopen the damaged classrooms, much of it covered by insurance.
But after part of a ceiling fell in a room in December 2017, an inspection by an architect and engineer found more compromised ceilings, each costing $12,000 to $15,000 to replace.
A feasibility study put the cost to rehabilitate the building at more than $9 million. The school’s classrooms were flood-prone, the roof leaked, asbestos was in the walls and the school did not meet accessibility standards.
Since the school closed more than five years ago, students in pre-K through fourth grade have been using classrooms in a modular building and Memorial School, across the street from Washington School, where they share a multipurpose room, a nurse’s office and specialized classrooms.
During the demolition process, officials said, the site will be secured, and any particularly noisy work will be done outside of school hours.
District officials plan to present the borough Planning Board with plans for a new 73,700-square-foot, three-floor school building with science labs, modern classrooms and a cafeteria with a working kitchen. Then the school board will submit documents to the state Department of Education for approval and determine how much aid the project would qualify to receive.
Once the district knows the project’s cost, it will ask voters to fund the construction of a new school in a bond referendum sometime next year. If the referendum proposal is approved, the vote would bring the district state funding toward a portion of the costs of the project, officials said.
Little Ferry was awarded a state grant for a free pre-K program last year. In September, 85 students began attending the program, about half of the borough's pre-kindergarten-age population.
The school district has five years to expand to meet the needs of 90% of eligible 3- and 4-year-olds, according to state requirements. The new building will provide the space the schools need to retain the grant, said Victoria Bradley, the Board of Education president.
“This administration and this school board’s commitment to providing the best education possible for our students is unwavering,” Bradley said. “The community’s support is critical as we work toward a new school that meets the needs of the students.”

Bright and early Wednesday morning, Belinda Bonite arrived at the newest H Mart in Little Ferry to be among the first to experience the Asian grocer.
"We always go to H Mart," said Bonite, 61, of Bergenfield, as she stood and waited for the new store to open its doors. "They have the best seafood — things you can't get anyplace else."
The Asian mega-supermarket chain opened its latest 43,000 square-foot market at 260 Bergen Turnpike to welcome a bevy of shoppers and community officials eager to sample produce, meat and seafood with an Asian flavor. H Mart is a Korean American supermarket chain operated by the Hanahreum Group, headquartered in Lyndhurst, with locations throughout the United States, Canada and England. The H in H Mart stands for han ah reum, the name of the corporate parent and a Korean phrase that means an arm full of groceries.

This is the eighth H Mart in New Jersey, with other locations in Paramus, Cherry Hill, Edison, Leonia, Ridgefield and two in Fort Lee. The Little Ferry H Mart is located in a repurposed department store in a strip mall. A smaller H Mart closed last summer in Little Ferry to make way for the new development.
"It really took the effort from a lot of people and a lot of love from the local neighborhood to get this store open," Brian Kwon, president of H Mart, said at the news conference. "There hasn't been a lot to celebrate this year. But I'm hoping we can end this year with the celebration of this beautiful store."
"What a gift to the community of Little Ferry," said Mayor Mauro Raguseo, noting that as an Italian American, he plans to celebrate his Christmas Eve feast of the seven fishes with seafood from H Mart.
"This H Mart will be an asset to Little Ferry and a destination for residents of our vibrant and diverse community and the entire area," Raguseo said.
The supermarket chain is a vital part of the Korean American experience in New Jersey, said Han Ik Son, president of the Korean-American Association of New Jersey, based in Palisades Park. Most of his members regularly patronize H Mart.
"They are our members and most of them are customers of H Mart," Son said.
The football field-sized supermarket features aisles of goods for the Asian foodie palate. Fresh vegetables such as Napa cabbage and bok choy are found in the greens section. There are specialty stations, too, which feature items like fish balls — ground fish shaped into small round balls that are perfect for hot pots. Kimchi fermented vegetables are available in myriad styles from cucumber to radish. Noodle lovers will find everything from buckwheat soba noodles to tteokbokki, Korean rice cakes. Marinated meats are neatly packaged for Korean barbecues.
Little Ferry residents Danny Suriaga, 35, and his mother Bella Suriaga, 56, filled their shopping cart with meats and a table barbecue. Korean barbecue is a favorite meal in the family and they plan to dine on the meats over the upcoming Christmas holidays.
Beyond supermarket staples, there are shops inside the store including an Asian-themed stationery and a Korean cosmetics shop. There is also a food court featuring Korean and Japanese cuisine as a well as a trendy bubble tea shop. Tous Les Jous, a Korean-style bakery, has a shop on site with artful cakes and pastries.

A Little Ferry man who was part of the far-right Oath Keepers group pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to a charge related to the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
James Breheny, 61, pleaded guilty to obstruction of an official proceeding, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia said.
Federal authorities said Breheny, also known as Seamus Evers, was part of a group chat called “DC Op: Jan 6 21” on Signal, an app providing an encrypted messaging service. A message from the chat, obtained by the Department of Justice, said Breheny was "coming in with a team from NJ, and who also has contacts with several militia leaders coming in.”
Subsequent text messages sent by Breheny, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office, said "I breached the Capitol door!" and "I have to clear chats."
Authorities said Breheny was the Oath Keepers' Bergen County coordinator. On Jan. 3, he allegedly arranged a meeting in Pennsylvania that included “multiple patriot groups” and the top leader of the Oath Keepers to prepare for “the show” three days later in Washington, D.C.
Video footage of the incident showed Breheny near the Capitol’s east doors, where rioters violently thrust past law enforcement officers and triggered alarm bells, federal prosecutors said. In the ensuing months, Breheny allegedly took several steps to avoid arrest, telling investigators in a Jan. 14 meeting that the east doors were opened, and that he did not know he was not allowed inside the Capitol.
He was initially charged with a slew of federal crimes, including violent entry and disorderly conduct, entering a restricted building with intent to disrupt government and obstructing justice.
Breheny is one of over 1,000 people charged with federal crimes in relation to the Jan. 6 riot. The investigation is still ongoing.
