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 Lower Manhattan, NY 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 Lower Manhattan, NY 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:

LOWER MANHATTAN, NYC -- A parking garage next to a Pace University building partially collapsed in Lower Manhattan leaving at least one dead.
Officials said at least six parking garage workers were pulled from the garage. One person was pronounced dead on scene, five were injured and one refused medical treatment.
One worker was trapped on an upper floor, conscious and alert, calling for firefighters. He was rescued and taken to another building and after the workers were removed, firefighters were pulled out.
"We deployed our robot dog into the building they were able to give us a video inside and then we're able to fly drones inside to conduct an assessment and conduct searches," FDNY Chief of Operations John Esposito said.

A parking garage has partially collapsed in Lower Manhattan leaving multiple injured Tuesday afternoon.
The building is located at 57 Ann Street between Nassau Street and William Street.
Officials have evacuated the university building that is next to the garage that collapsed.
"We heard a really big boom, like something out of the ordinary it was just a really loud noise like something exploded," Gabriel Yahoudaief said. "I saw people running out quickly from the scene, it was insane. Everyone was scared. Everyone thought that was their last time being alive."
The upper levels of the three-story building collapsed around 4:15 p.m., sending cars crashing down onto the levels below.
Officials said they have no reason to believe anyone is still inside but will continue to conduct searches with the robot dogs.
"I didn't think about it much before but now it's starting to hit home," Slattery said. "I had no idea a collapse had occurred. I was lucky today."
First responders on scene said the building is completely unstable, and FDNY will not send anyone else in until the building is shored up.
Crews are trying to determine what businesses and city agencies use the garage and make sure all employees and staff are accounted for.
New York City Department of Buildings records show there is one open hazardous violation from 2003 for cracks in the concrete.
Councilmember Christopher Marte raised questions about the stability of other buildings next to the garage.
"We're going to keep on working with the department of buildings to make sure that buildings that do a violation or violations that are just closed, that we really follow up and keep these agencies accountable," Marte said.
Pace University announced classes are now canceled.
"All of a sudden we hear this huge, loud noise," the student said. "People were running towards it, people were running away from it, people are crying. We looked in and see rubble and cars and stuff."

The city that never sinks?
New geological research warns that the weight of New York City’s skyscrapers is actually causing the Big Apple — whose more than 1 million buildings weigh nearly 1.7 trillion pounds — to sink lower into its surrounding bodies of water.
The city is plopping closer to the water at a rate of 1 to 2 millimeters a year, “with some areas subsiding much faster.”
While that may not seem significant to untrained eyes, the gradual descent makes NYC extremely vulnerable to natural disasters, according to lead researcher and geologist Tom Parsons of the United States Geological Survey.
Lower Manhattan is particularly at risk, and there is concern for both Brooklyn and Queens as well, according to the study.
“New York faces significant challenges from flood hazard; the threat of sea level rise is 3 to 4 times higher than the global average along the Atlantic coast of North America … A deeply concentrated population of 8.4 million people faces varying degrees of hazard from inundation in New York City,” he and his team wrote in the new report.
The city has already seen these harsh effects starting more than a decade ago.
“Two recent hurricanes caused casualties and heavy damage in New York City,” he wrote.
“In 2012, Hurricane Sandy forced sea water into the city, whereas heavy rainfall from Hurricane Ida in 2021 overwhelmed drainage systems because of heavy runoff within the mostly paved city.”
As awful as Sandy and Ida were — the more recent of the two hurricanes forcing people to abandon their cars on major roadways across the city — Parsons fears that the structural integrity of the city’s many buildings could be at risk in the future.
“The combination of tectonic and anthropogenic subsidence, sea level rise, and increasing hurricane intensity imply an accelerating problem along coastal and riverfront areas,” he wrote.
“Repeated exposure of building foundations to salt water can corrode reinforcing steel and chemically weaken concrete causing structural weakening.”
Not to mention, the threat of severe storms is more likely than it was years ago, according to Parsons.
Greenhouse gas “appears to be reducing the natural wind shear barrier along the US East Coast, which will allow more frequent high intensity hurricane events in the coming decades.”
Incredibly, many of New York’s real estate additions built since the devastation of Sandy are not taking the situation seriously enough, he added.
What do you think? Post a comment.
“New York City is ranked third in the world in terms of future exposed assets to coastal flooding and 90% of the 67,400 structures in the expanded post-Hurricane Sandy flood-risk areas have not been built to floodplain standards.
“New York is emblematic of growing coastal cities all over the world that are observed to be subsiding, meaning there is a shared global challenge of mitigation against a growing inundation hazard.”

Lower Manhattan will be underwater in less than 80 years, climate experts fear.
A new report from a US Geological Survey member warns that New York City is sinking under the massive weight of its own buildings.
Manhattan, in particular, will be more prone to natural disasters because of it.
Those two factors — combined with rising sea levels — could leave the Big Apple’s coastal areas unrecognizable by the turn of the century, according to geophysicist Klaus Jacob, a professor emeritus at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.
“There could be as much as 6 feet of sea level rise [give or take] by the end of the century … then we will have a real problem on our hands in the city,” he told The Post.
“The best way to deal with rising sea levels combined with storm surge would be, of course, retreating to higher ground,” Jacob said. “But tell that to the property owners in lower Manhattan and other places that they have to move skyscrapers to a higher ground. That’s not going to happen.”
So, Jacob has an unorthodox proposal to manage what might come around at the turn of the century.
He wants to convert lower Manhattan into a modern Venice and accept that its thoroughfares will become canals that people can live and work on.
“If we want to keep skyscrapers and other buildings functioning, they will need to become mini islands that are standing in the water,” Jacob said.
“They will have to be serviced not by taxis on wheels, but instead amphibian boats. Barges will have to come to pick up the garbage. And we need more highlines that connect the various buildings with each other.”
While the days of doomsday flooding may seem to be a lifetime away, Jacob insists that the threat needs to be taken more seriously and accommodations need to start being made now.
“All the infrastructure, electric, gas, communication, it needs to be waterproofed,” he said.
Lower Manhattan isn’t the only area at risk area in the tristate, though.
“Long Island, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, you name it,” he said. “The Hudson Valley all the way up to Troy … I would say anything at elevation 20 [feet above sea level] and below is an extreme risk. There’s a marginal risk for elevations between 20 and 30 feet.”
Just over the past decade, there have already been telltale signs that the worst is yet to come.
The devastation of Hurricane Sandy was mentioned as cause for further concern in the recent report — as was the devastating, fatal flooding in NYC from Hurricane Ida in 2021.
“All climate change models show that in the future, the storms, the hurricanes will get more intense,” Jacob said
“So that probably means stronger storm surges, higher storm surges, and that’s more risk and lost protection for the city.”
The Army Corps of Engineers is proposing a $52B construction of coastal seawalls to mitigate the looming circumstances.
But Jacob fears that the “piecemeal” approach doesn’t address the bigger picture concerns.
“That is a finite duration … sooner or later, we will run out of our means and ways to deal with those issues,” he said. “Now that’s not happening tomorrow, but a few decades after tomorrow and from [year] 2,100 on, it will get serious.”

NEW YORK -- An iconic institution has made a triumphant return to Lower Manhattan.
After a three-year hiatus, Century 21 reopened its flagship store to the delight of bargain shoppers on Tuesday.
They lined up for hours, some camping out in chairs, others peering through the windows, all for the grand reopening.
"I was totally devastated. We were counting the days. This was my favorite store. I'm so happy," one shopper said.
"Let's get it. Let's shop. Everybody shop," another said.
The COVID pandemic forced the discount luxury goods store to file for bankruptcy and shut down all 13 stores back in 2020. The return of its flagship Lower Manhattan location brought out hundreds of bargain hunters Tuesday from around the country and even the world.
"I'm looking for everything. I'm looking for suits. I'm looking for shoes. I'm looking for ties. Just excited about the possibilities," said Robert Nelson of Queens.
"She screamed. I yelled at her for screaming until she told me what it was and then 45 seconds later I was booking tickets on JetBlue," added Melinda Cohen of Palm Beach, Florida.
Cohen and her daughter, Sydney, flew in Tuesday morning just for the occasion and were to fly home Tuesday night.
"And we have her boyfriend bringing us a suitcase to pack all of our goodies that we are going to check," Cohen said.
The new store is smaller than the original, with only four floors instead of six. But shoppers say the bargains remain.
"This was a staple in Manhattan. All the people who worked down here, we used to be here on the regular," one shopper said.
At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, owner Eddie Gindi got emotional thinking about the comeback of the family-owned business.
"We had no choice but to open up. We had no choice. We built a brand that is bigger than us," Gindi said.
Customers hope it will continue to be a mainstay for decades to come.
