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 Mahwah, 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 Mahwah, 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:

RAMSEY − Kyle McGuire’s game-winning field goal traveled 18 yards to get through the uprights.
The Ramsey senior then traveled 100 yards in the other direction.
The Rams outlasted Mahwah, 17-14, in Friday night’s Super Football Conference American Red game at DePuyt Field. They not only bested their rival for the fourth year in a row, but also helped their North Group 2 playoff cause.
Luca Gemma carried five times for 47 yards on the winning drive and brought the ball to the 1-yard line with two seconds left. After Ramsey (3-4) called time out, McGuire broke the 14-all tie and sprinted across the field in celebration, ending up in the opposite end zone with teammates piling on.
"I just started running wherever my legs took me once I saw it go in," he said. "Oh, what a feeling it is."
Check out the photo gallery, then continue reading.
McGuire lined up for the field goal having made 12 of 13 kicks this season ? all extra points.
"This is his first year of varsity," Rams coach Adam Baeira said. "Everyone has a moment when their number's called, and that was his moment. I'm just so proud of him, because he deserved it.
"He won't forget this one for a long time."
Ramsey entered the weekend holding the 16th and final playoff spot in the North Group 2 United Power Rankings, while Mahwah (4-2) was eighth.
The Rams also climbed into second place behind unbeaten Westwood in the SFC American Red Division. But much of the postgame buzz was about the neighborhood rivalry, which has belonged to Ramsey since Baeira took over in 2020.
"We circled this game from the beginning of the year, and our team just played our hearts out," McGuire said. "To be in a spotlight like this and make a play like that, it's just great."
Ramsey's two scoring drives totaled three plays. Gemma broke off an 80-yard run to set up Justus Favata's 13-yard touchdown pass to Roberto Cotes early in the second quarter, and the same duo hooked up for a 28-yard TD one play after a fourth-down stop midway through the third.
Mahwah got several big plays from senior Joseph DeMarco (two TDs), including a 43-yard reception to help put them into Rams territory late in the game. The home team thwarted that drive by forcing a fourth-down incompletion with 2:49 remaining.
This was the next-door neighbors' closest game since 2014. That year, Mahwah's Patrick Cowan kicked a 41-yard field goal as time ran out to help the Thunderbirds celebrate a 17-16 win on their home field.
That was part of a run of eight straight Mahwah wins in the series. The T-Birds still lead the all-time series, 30-24-1.
? Gemma led the offense (18 carries, 189 yards) and defense (9 tackles) and answered a 64-yard Mahwah punt with a 62-yarder of his own... all despite a sore knee that bothered him throughout the week.
? Favata completed 9-of-14 passes for 100 yards and two TDs and played turnover-free football, as did his T-Bird counterpart David Kobobel (6-of-12, 111 yards, 1 TD).
? DeMarco gained 84 yards on 8 touches (rushing/receiving combined), while Preston Duffy shouldered the Mahwah rushing load with 107 yards on 24 carries.
? Ramsey linebackers David Larsen and Mason Gonzalez combined for 15 tackles and 1½ sacks.
Ramsey hosts North Group 2 contender Newton next Friday, while Mahwah visits Group 3 Paramus the same night.

Expectations have been high for Kyle Teel since he first put on a baseball uniform at Mahwah High School as a freshman in the spring of 2017.
A talented player who played any position asked of him by Mahwah coach Jeff Remo, Teel excelled during a high school career that saw him named the 2020 New Jersey Gatorade Baseball Player of the Year.
He went to the University of Virginia, where expectations were even higher as the top-ranked baseball player from the Garden State. And just like he did at Mahwah, Teel excelled, emerging as one of the best college players in the country.
And on Sunday, Teel found out what the next step of his career holds for him.
Teel — a former standout at Mahwah High School and an All-American catcher at Virginia — was selected by the Boston Red Sox with the 14th overall pick of the 2023 MLB Draft on Sunday.
The slot value of the 14th pick is $4,663,100.
“It’s a dream come true,” Teel said during a Zoom availability with media members after he was selected. “I’ve always wanted to be a pro baseball player, and I’m so excited and ready to get to work.”
Teel said he has a relationship with the Red Sox organization dating back to when he was playing at Mahwah. He had a chance to be drafted following his senior season at Mahwah, but decided to attend Virginia.
The decision paid off, as he emerged as one of the best players in the country this season at Virginia.
Teel, who wrapped up his junior season, was the 2023 ACC Player of the Year and the recipient of the Buster Posey Award, given annually to the top catcher in college baseball.
He was a First-Team All-American by five college baseball publications and a First-Team All-ACC selection. Teel hit .407 with a .475 OBP, 13 home runs, 69 RBIs, 105 hits, 67 runs scored and 25 doubles this spring. He ends his college career as a .343 hitter with 28 home runs, 155 RBIs, 236 hits and 170 runs scored.
MLB.com had ranked Teel as the seventh overall prospect in the draft.
“I think I developed a ton in college, and I think betting on myself was the best decision I could’ve ever made,” Teel said. “Thanks again to the UVA coaches and my teammates. We push each other every day to get better and I think that I’ve improved greatly since going to college.”
Remo, who was drafted back in 1980 by the Chicago Cubs, knew Teel was going to be a special player when he stepped on Mahwah’s field the first time.
“When he played for me as a freshman, he started for me as a freshman, and I’ve been coaching for over 30 years and I’ve coached some good baseball players, some D-I players, but I said this kid is going to play in the big leagues one day,” Remo told NJ Advance Media before the draft. “I knew he was going to be very successful. What he accomplished this year, he got the Buster Posey Award, Player of the Year in the ACC.
“If you told me he was going to do that, I wouldn’t believe you, but he’s really accomplished a great deal in his three years at Virginia.”
Teel was an NJ.com Second-Team All-State selection at shortstop in 2019, along with playing catcher and outfield. He batted .574 with eight homers and 31 RBIs and served as Mahwah’s closer, picking up three wins in relief.
His senior season in 2020 was cut short because of the pandemic, potentially robbing him of an even greater senior season.
“Coach Remo has been a huge influence on my career and he’s just always been on my side and coached me up. Just huge thanks to him. He really helped me get where I’m at today,” Teel said.
But Teel flourished at Virginia, earning freshman All-American honors from numerous publications. He was also a Third-Team All-ACC selection as a designated hitter as a rookie.
Teel started all of Virginia’s 58 games at catcher as a sophomore in 2022, hitting .276 with six home runs and 45 RBIs.
Teel said he grew up a New York Yankees fan, but will be on the other side of the rivalry as he begins his professional career.
“Growing up, it’s kind of funny because I was a Yankees fan, but now I bleed red, so I’m excited to get going,” Teel said. “I’m just so excited. Now, it’s time to get to work, and I can’t wait.”

MAHWAH — The owner of the historic Crocker Mansion has been charged with masterminding an elaborate scheme in which he allegedly cheated thousands of online followers out of more than $1 billion, authorities said.
Ho Wan Kwok, better known as Miles Guo, used the money he stole to float his extravagant lifestyle and that of his family, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.
The 120-year-old estate on Ramapo Valley Road, which sold for $26 million in December 2021, is part of a long list of Guo’s property and hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. currency seized by the federal government in the past seven months.
The list also includes a 98-inch TV, a Bösendorfer grand piano and multiple high-end sports cars — merchandise that authorities claim was purchased with misappropriated funds.
Guo and his financier, Kin Ming Je, or William Je, were charged with bank fraud, money laundering, securities fraud and wire fraud in a 12-count indictment unsealed in federal court.
Guo, who is exiled from his native China, is an associate of former White House adviser Steve Bannon and, reportedly, a member of The Mar-a-Lago Club, owned by former President Donald Trump, in Palm Beach, Florida.
In recent years, authorities said, the tycoon established organizations known as the Rule of Law Foundation and the Rule of Law Society to amass a following that aligned with his purported campaign against the Chinese Communist Party.
An investigation by the FBI found he began conspiring with Je five years ago and that, as the leader of the plot, he “lied to his victims” and “promised outsized returns” if they invested in his businesses.
But those entities, authorities said, were fronts for a complex web of deceit.
One such business, referred to in the 38-page indictment as GTV, was promoted as the first platform to combine citizen journalism with artificial intelligence and state-of-the-art technology.
Story continues below gallery.
Guo and Je fraudulently obtained $452 million in victim funds through a private offering of GTV stock in April 2020, authorities said. More than 5,500 stockholders invested in the company with the belief that their money would be used to grow the business, they said.
Most of the proceeds were deposited into personal bank accounts, authorities said. And a good portion of the money raised from investors was placed with a high-risk hedge fund to benefit the duo and their co-conspirators, they said.
Other entities, including an exchange program for a phony type of cryptocurrency called the Himalaya Coin and the Himalaya Dollar, were mere instruments that Guo and Je created to perpetrate their fraud, authorities said.
To conceal the source of their funding, authorities said, the duo transferred the money to hundreds of bank accounts held in the names of at least 80 individuals and organizations in the Bahamas, the United Arab Emirates and the U.S.
Authorities said Guo and Je evaded enforcement of anti-money laundering laws and bankruptcy laws by retaliating against those who demanded the return of their invested funds.

MAHWAH, NJ — Want to see a popular film and TV actress answer questions and help out high school students?
As part of a fundraiser next week, Cara Buono, who has appeared on "Stranger Things," "The Sopranos," and "Mad Men," will appear at Mahwah High School for an "inspirational celebrity conversation," according to organizers. Tickets are for sale for the general public to attend.
Money raised through the event will support Mahwah High School scholarships for students involved in art and filmmaking.
The event, scheduled for Saturday night, Oct. 28, came about because a group of filmmakers from Mahwah have been involved in a film a project in the area involving Buono.
North Jersey resident Jeff Marchetti, an actor with more than 35 years of experience in film and TV, is executive producer of an upcoming film called "The Stray," which has filmed around Mahwah. Current and past Mahwah High School students helped work on the project as well.
At the event, Marchetti will ask Buono questions in the style of "Inside the Actors' Studio," but the audience will be allowed to ask questions as well.
"We believe you'll find it inspiring to hear how a young lady who was born in the Bronx to a simple blue collar family had enough drive, confidence, and determination in herself to earn her first professional role before she was even a teenager," organizers said. "Remarkably, Cara Buono was able to carry that positive energy throughout her entire career."
Organizers said that "Stranger Things" fans are encouraged to dress as their favorite character form the show, and there will be prizes for the most creative.
"Ask questions, hear stories, watch clips, enjoy snacks," organizers said.
The event will take place the last Saturday of the month, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m., with a special VIP preview starting at 6:30 p.m. (See details of both events here).

BERGEN COUNTY, NJ — More than two dozen New Jersey locations of Boston Market, including nine in Bergen County, have been ordered to temporarily stop operating after a state investigation found "multiple violations of workers’ rights," the state said on Tuesday.
The company owes more than $600,000 in back wages to 314 workers, according to the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJDOL).
Boston Market may have to pay more than $2.5 million in back wages, fees, and damages, which officials assessed to parent company Boston Chicken of NJ, LLC.
A Boston Market worker in Hamilton (Mercer County) submitted a complaint last November to the department's Division of Wage and Hour and Compliance that prompted an investigation, state officials said.
Since the state began investigating, NJDOL officials said the division received close to three dozen more complaints about several New Jersey Boston Market locations.
Citations included unpaid/late payment of wages, hindrance of the investigation, failure to pay minimum wage, records violations, failure to pay earned sick leave, and failure to maintain records for earned sick leave, said the NJDOL.
The NJDOL’s Division of Wage and Hour and Contract Compliance has the authority to immediately halt work at any public or private worksite when an investigation finds evidence that an employer may have violated state wage, benefit or tax laws.
Boston Market has requested a hearing to appeal the order, said the NJDOL on Tuesday, Aug. 15.
The state Department of Labor continues to monitor locations where stop-work orders have been issued, and can assess civil penalties of $5,000 per day against an employer conducting business in violation of the order.
Bergen County Stores
A call to the Mahwah location at (201) 828-9399 on Wednesday was answered with a recording saying that catering requests are handled by the website, and callers could press 1 to speak to the local restaurant. That option went unanswered.
Here is a complete list of Boston Market locations that were issued a stop-work order, according to the NJDOL. To see if your local restaurant is open, give them a call or check the Boston Market website.
