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 Lopatcong Overlook, 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 Lopatcong Overlook, 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:

Marty Grossman is no stranger to the Paulinskill Valley Rail Trail.
Home to more than 100 species of wildflowers and birds, it’s not unheard of to bump into Grossman traversing the multi-use trail that runs 27 miles through Warren and Sussex counties.
He can sometimes be found there performing ongoing maintenance.
“We do some trimming, sign cleaning, paint the wood posts and also clean the kiosks and update the information on them,” said Grossman, president of the Paulinskill Valley Trail Committee, which is based in Andover and oversees four trails that make up the extension of Kittatinny Valley State Park.
On Sunday, he will have a chance to do something else he loves on the trails: exploring and showing them off to visitors. Grossman will be among the dozens of organizers leading hikers for New Jersey’s annual “First Day Hike” that will include at least 40 events spanning more than 453,000 acres of land, including 40 state parks and forests.
“It’s important to keep these kinds of open spaces functioning,” said Grossman, 70, who has been with the committee for 30 years and sees the annual hikes as opportunities to highlight the state’s biodiversity, newly-proposed trails and attract volunteers.
First Day Hikes began in 1992 at DCR’s Blue Hills Reservation in Milton, Massachusetts, before going nationwide in 2012 when all 50 state parks systems joined to create the “America’s State Parks First Day Hikes Initiative.” New Jersey’s hikes, which like others across the U.S., are free to attend, require pre-registration only for some events — most of which you can still sign up for here.
The state’s First Day Hike returned Jan. 1, 2022, after a year-long pause due to COVID. The hike earlier this year included 28 events with more than 248 hikers journeying throughout 952 miles of state trails, according to New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection officials. Sunday’s walks — which start between 6 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. — range from the Warren Highlands Trail towards the bottom of the state to Belleplain State Forest in Cape May and Liberty State Park up north in Hudson County.
“First Day Hikes are the perfect opportunity to get outside, recharge and connect with nature in one of New Jersey’s state parks, forests or historic sites,” John Cecil, assistant commissioner for State Parks, Forests & Historic Sites, said in a statement. “Not only will you get fresh air and exercise, but you will make memories exploring New Jersey’s incredible natural and historic resources.”
More than 10 of Sunday’s hikes welcome dogs on leashes, including a “First Day Dog Hike” at Belleplain State Forest. In addition, state officials said walks will be offered for attendees on beginner and advanced levels. Children attending hikes must be accompanied by an adult.
For experienced hikers or anyone looking to put themselves to the test, John Rovetto recommends the “High Point First Day Challenge Hike,” which the life member of the non-profit New Jersey Search and Rescue will lead.
“I’ve been doing this for about seven years and we call this one a ‘challenge hike’ because it’s a little bit strenuous. People want that challenge. Some of the hikes are a very simple three- to four-mile stroll through the woods. This is a real hiker’s hike,” said Rovetto, discussing the 6-mile trek that will include “rock scrambling” and coursing through parts of the Appalachian Trail.
Moreover, Rovetto said the Mahwah-based rescue squad — which provides volunteer incident management, mountain rescue, medical, and ground search services in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania — uses the hike as “practice” for future operations. Thus, with at least four squad members on hand, hikers can expect to get a glimpse of how rescue volunteers work in the field, Rovetto said.
“We have about 60 people on (the hike) already and before COVID we did it with about 100 people, it’s very popular. The hike is almost tactical-style. We have radio communications, it’s a very intense set-up,” he said. “People like that.”
Organizers suggest attendees register to help plan for a head count, check the weather and stay in contact with hike leaders in the event of a postponement, pack snacks such as power bars and sandwiches, wear boots with traction and layer up if colder weather is forecasted.
Grossman said whether people are joining a longer hike like that at High Point State Park or a beginner’s hike, such as the one he’s helping to host which starts at Footbridge Park in Blairstown, it’s clear the walks continue to draw crowds.
“The push is on throughout the country to make trails ... keep people off the road, get their exercise pedaling to work ... breathing fresh air instead of breathing the exhaust,” Grossman said.
A list of the hikes is available below (more information, updates on capacity and details on how to register can be found here):

Transportation matters lie at a confusing nexus of local, state and federal needs, funding and regulation. When I write about it, a main goal of mine is to boil my focus down to the important parts: What is the government trying to accomplish? What are the challenges? When will it start? How long will it take?
So when I wrote last week regional planners are kicking around the idea of designating Route 22 as an interstate, I fell back on that pattern. They want to address congestion on the highway, and interstates are getting more funding these days than local and state roads. They’d need to convince people at the state and federal levels to go ahead with the plan even though Route 22 is not up to interstate design standards. It would be difficult to accomplish but not impossible.
But one of the fun things about being Road Warrior is the feedback from readers. You guys catch things I overlook and connect dots I don’t always spell out in the column. Last week was no different.
Route 22 wouldn’t be a complete loop because you’d never get east of 13th Street in Easton – Cemetery Curve, the narrow US 22 toll bridge, traffic signals in New Jersey. But, you could designate Route 22 as an interstate to Route 33, and continue on Route 33 as an interstate from Route 22 to I-78, which would give you a nice loop. And, while you’re at it, just designate Route 33 from I-78 to I-80 as an interstate as well. ~ Vic Maslanka, Shepherdstown, WV
I didn’t broach this issue last week. No one with PennDOT or the Lehigh Valley Transportation Study brought up this issue, and the column was already getting long. But, I reached the same conclusion Vic did. In my opinion, the biggest problem isn’t Cemetery Curve or the too narrow toll bridge but the New Jersey portion of Route 22.
The 1.4 miles of Route 22 in Phillipsburg has three traffic lights, a dozen intersections and too many street-side businesses to easily count. The same issues apply in Lopatcong and Pohatcong townships in New Jersey, which have large box store developments along the highway. Making this stretch of Route 22 an interstate would be supremely expensive and wreck havoc with Warren County’s economy.
Like Vic, I think the best option would be to designate Route 22 an interstate between the I-78 split in Fogelsville to Route 33. Interstate traffic would then be directed south on Route 33 before joining with the current I-78 in Lower Saucon Township. This would likely require improvements to the Route 33/Route 22 interchange, but I don’t think it would be a deal breaker under the right circumstances.
As for Route 33, I think making that an interstate would be an easier sell than Route 22. It’s already links Interstate 80 and I-78, and its design is better than Route 22’s. If it did become an interstate, I think it would be Interstate 580. I-80 is a primary interstate, so it would most likely take precedence over I-78. I have been wrong about this before, though…
I would like to express my appreciation for your article. As a ‘map nerd’ myself who used to do the old Triptiks for AAA when I was in college, I would like to make a suggestion about the final point. Regarding the renumbering of the bypass of I-78 around the cities, most likely the federal government would renumber the route to I-278 or maybe I-478. Since the spur and loop numbers are indigenous by state (unless they directly cross over into another state like I-295), you can still use the same number. An example would be I-495 in Virginia, Delaware, New York and Massachusetts. ~ Robert Blume
D’oh! A few savvy readers picked up this blunder of mine. Interstate 278 is far enough away from the Lehigh Valley that the number would most likely be available if I-78 ever gets a bypass in the Lehigh Valley.

LOPATCONG TWP., N.J. – Lopatcong Township will review a plan to open up about 150 acres for redevelopment, including a tract that includes part of the Phillipsburg Mall.
Planner George Ritter went over the proposal with the township planning board Monday night. Any changes to how land can be used in the four parcels on both sides of Route 22 between Route 57 and the borders of Greenwich and Pohatcong townships will be up to town council. Ritter emphasized that the proposal is for potential redevelopment, not condemnation of land.
"This is not something where they're going to use eminent domain or anything like that," Ritter said, referring to government taking of private property for public use. Development decisions made after the review is over would be made by landowners, who would also have the option not to do anything.
"This process is only the beginning," Ritter told the planning board before it approved his report. Any final decisions on redevelopment zoning will be up to town council, and the review will take months.
Most of the land in the four tracts is fully or partly developed, Ritter said. In some cases, buildings are vacant or dilapidated, or the site layout is inefficient, with lots of empty space and land paved over.
One exception is a 50-acre farm field behind the Phillipsburg Mall that Ritter said has limited access to Route 22. The mall itself is split between Lopatcong and Pohatcong, with the western edge in a potential redevelopment parcel.
A redevelopment plan could allow new uses for land and change design standards for the area, Ritter said. He added that the township is not aware of any solid plans for land along the highway, despite rumors of development.
Board member Joseph Pryor said the decline of the mall, "a gateway to town," prompted the study of new uses for land.
John and Cynthia Curtis of the Perfect Christmas Tree Farm said they are concerned that the redevelopment review might make a sale difficult.
"We're trying to sell it so we can retire," John Curtis, 81, told the crowd. "Don't muck it up so we can't sell it."
After the meeting, Cynthia Curtis said she would like to see the farm preserved and not become a warehouse.
The meeting finished with a long discussion of warehouses, including the 877,000-square-foot Bridge Industrial building proposed for 80 Strykers Road. The board voted Monday for preliminary site plan approval for that site, confirming a decision it made earlier.
Residents of the Overlook at Lopatcong, near the Bridge Industrial project, were among those objecting to more warehouses. Township ordinances that would limit warehouse development are being challenged in court.
"I buy everything from Amazon," said Jim Belske. "I get it," he said of the need for warehouses to supply e-commerce customers, but he questioned how a cluster of warehouses could cover land in Lopatcong.
When Belske and others asked if the township is fighting for the residents, Pryor, a former council member, said Lopatcong passed ordinances to do that and they are now being challenged in court.
James Bryce, attorney for the planning board, said warehouse development "is a function of the road network and available space." He and Pryor said questions could be taken to town council at its meeting Wednesday, but that comment on items under litigation should not be expected and there is no way for anybody to provide specific answers on what will happen in court.
Board Chairman Gary Van Vliet wound the meeting down after about two hours.
