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 Manchester, FL 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 Manchester, FL 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:

Ant and Dec's smiles were almost as bright as the sunshine in Florida as they kicked off the finale to the current series of Saturday Night Takeaway. Hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly were on top form as they launched into an all-singing, all-dancing performance of Land of 1000 Dances on the ITV family .
The telly favourites were joined by their co-stars Fleur East, Jordan North and Stephen Mulhern for their high-energy routine live from Universal Orlando Resort. And fans were thrilled to hear the pair, who had a massive pop career in the nineties, belt out the introduction song as they sported dazzling colourful shirts to match the glorious weather.
They were joined by guest star Nicole Scherzinger who looked stunning in a sunny yellow dress, and of course the audience made up A Place On The Plane winners from throughout the series. Viewers watching from home flocked to comment within moments with many reacting in disbelief that this series has sped by all too quickly.
@spaziwan tweeted: "Gutted it's the last episode of the series!" And @mlawelshgirl said: "Can’t believe it’s the last show of the series."
@TwellyWatcher tweeted: "Don’t want this show to end but equally very excited to see the finale live in Florida." And @Ejc09123 wrote: "I can’t believe it’s #SaturdayNightTakeaway’s last show of the series it has gone way too quick."
Another fan @honeymoonvalle remarked: "I wonder what all the Americans passing by think of this HAHAHA." And @Hanxx said: "This must look so confusing to people from other countries just there at Universal on holiday."
Other viewers pointed out that really it should be Saturday Afternoon Takeaway in Florida because of the time difference. @TwellyWatcher said: "More like Saturday Afternoon Takeaway in Orlando." And @chrisgolds said: "Yay! It’s #SaturdayNightTakeaway live from Orlando! @UniversalORL looks phenomenal as ever. They look like they are having the best Saturday afternoon!"
But @justnaomiyeh said: "This is actually a bit depressing sitting in my cold living room watching everyone on their holibobs." And @OhAlicia_remarked: "Oh to visit Florida someday." @RyanTheSoapking said: "I'm so jealous."
@EnfieldGarry grumbled jokingly: "How dare they be in Florida." And @ant_dec_stephen said: "What I would do to be in Orlando right now."
@Charlie__Tweets praised: "Loved the opening titles." And @emsmusicalmind cheered: "What a great intro! Loved the dancing and singing guys!"

In competitive sports, it’s not often you get a showing of support from your competition.
But a Florida cheerleading team is sharing their victory with Connecticut cheerleaders who have been mourning the loss of one of their own.
Eleven-year-old Jaidyn Bolduc of Vernon died in a car crash just days before her competitive cheerleading team, the Manchester Red Hawks, was expected to take the stage at nationals in Florida.
At the competition, her 11-, 12-, and 13-year-old teammates, “lit that mat on fire. Everyone knew who the Manchester Redhawks were, who Jaidyn was. When we were leaving, everyone was screaming out ‘Jaidyn, Jaidyn,’” said Manchester Redhawks coach and cheer director Tanya Pabe.
Her teammates held up a picture of the 11-year-old's face during the routine in moments she was supposed to be flying through the air.
Moments before services for Jaidyn Monday, Coach Pabe received a surprise package in the mail.
“I came home to this big box on my step and I’m like what is this.”
It was a shiny victory trophy originally awarded to the South Pasco Predators.
While they beat the Redhawks, they felt compelled to share their win with their worthy competitors.
“We were floored, we sat back and started crying. It was a heart-breaking, touching experience that another team cared so much about how our girls were,” said Redhawks assistant coach Kimberly Bonneau.
In a letter the Predators wrote, “Being able to show the strength that you did, makes your team the true champions.”
And while Jaidyn’s cheerleading family checks in on each other daily through an app, community members are coming together to support her family too.
“Most of the family, they’re just paralyzed with grief. They can’t even think of things like Christmas shopping or putting a meal on the table,” said Tracy Will, who would see Jaidyn at family parties.
Jaidyn’s mom and grandmother were also in the car crash. They’re recovering from serious injuries as they grieve.
“Every single picture I have of Jaidyn her arms were like this, she was reaching out to hug another little cousin.”
The Florida team's act of reaching out meant the world to this team. Sportsmanship at its finest, and a reminder that life is much more than competition.
“The girls have shown how strong they are by being there for one another, and that’s just the same I want for the community. Just support one another. Don’t take each day for granted,” said Bonneau.
It’s the people who touch your lives, even for way too short of a time that matter most, like Jaidyn.
“She flew high,” said Pabe, as the hashtag #flyhighJaidyn remembers the cheerleader online.

KEY LARGO, Fla. (AP) — A university professor broke a record for the longest time living underwater without depressurization this weekend at a Florida Keys lodge for scuba divers.
Joseph Dituri’s 74th day residing in Jules’ Undersea Lodge, situated at the bottom of a 30-foot-deep lagoon in Key Largo, wasn’t much different than his previous days there since he submerged March 1.
Dituri, who also goes by the moniker “Dr. Deep Sea,” ate a protein-heavy meal of eggs and salmon prepared using a microwave, exercised with resistance bands, did his daily pushups and took an hour-long nap. Unlike a submarine, the lodge does not use technology to adjust for the increased underwater pressure.
The previous record of 73 days, two hours and 34 minutes was set by two Tennessee professors -- Bruce Cantrell and Jessica Fain -- at the same location in 2014.
But Dituri isn’t just settling for the record and resurfacing: He plans to stay at the lodge until June 9, when he reaches 100 days and completes an underwater mission dubbed Project Neptune 100.
The mission combines medical and ocean research along with educational outreach and was organized by the Marine Resources Development Foundation, owner of the habitat.
“The record is a small bump and I really appreciate it,” said Dituri, a University of South Florida educator who holds a doctorate in biomedical engineering and is a retired U.S. Naval officer. “I’m honored to have it, but we still have more science to do.”
His research includes daily experiments in physiology to monitor how the human body responds to long-term exposure to extreme pressure.
“The idea here is to populate the world’s oceans, to take care of them by living in them and really treating them well,” Dituri said.
The outreach portion of Dituri’s mission includes conducting online classes and broadcast interviews from his digital studio beneath the sea. During the past 74 days, he has reached over 2,500 students through online classes in marine science and more with his regular biomedical engineering courses at the University of South Florida.
While he says he loves living under the ocean, there is one thing he really misses.
“The thing that I miss the most about being on the surface is literally the sun,” Dituri said. “The sun has been a major factor in my life – I usually go to the gym at five and then I come back out and watch the sunrise.”

In an uplifting tale of resilience and community support, 13-year-old Hughie Higginson, a recipient of the prestigious Pride of Britain and Pride of Manchester awards, recently embarked on a life-changing journey.
Despite his battle with leukaemia, Hughie’s determination to make a difference has been recognised and celebrated.
Now, he’s experiencing his first holiday in three years, thanks to the dedicated efforts of Destination Florida, an Eccles-based charity that flies deserving children to Orlando.
This heartwarming initiative has brought smiles to the faces of 74 children from the northwest of England, providing them with unforgettable memories and much-needed respite.
The children, aged six to 16, were treated to an enchanting adventure in Orlando, where they explored the wonders of Disney and Universal theme parks.
The highlight of the trip included a captivating Cirque Du Soleil show and a delightful team-building pool party.
A dedicated team of medical, nursing, and non-medical volunteers provided round-the-clock care, equipped with a mobile hospital staffed by doctors, nurses, and physiotherapists.
This unique combination of support allowed children like Hughie to experience the trip of a lifetime.
They are a huge credit to Eccles and Greater Manchester for the wonderful work they do.
Together with his best friend Freddie Xavi, Hughie raised a remarkable £300,000 in gratitude to the doctors and nurses at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
His battle with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia began in September 2020, and he continues his treatment, undergoing chemotherapy at Manchester Children’s Hospital until March next year.
For Hughie, this trip marked a significant milestone, as he expressed his excitement, saying, “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
The importance of this initiative extends beyond the children themselves.
For parents and guardians who often shoulder the full-time responsibility of caring for their children, this trip offers eight days of invaluable respite.
Knowing that their child is in the hands of dedicated medical professionals allows them to unwind and recharge.
Dr. Adam Nicholls, a consultant in pediatric intensive care at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, led the medical team on this remarkable journey.
He marvelled at the progress the children made throughout the trip, noting that the experience helped them overcome shyness and grow in confidence.
With diverse and complex medical conditions among the children, the hotel itself became a mini hospital, providing the necessary care and support.
Destination Florida traces its roots back to 1987 when Dr. David Evans and Sister Alex Shaw were inspired to create this initiative.
Their inspiration came from witnessing northern-based children being nominated for a trip to Florida through a London-based charity but not being selected.
The inaugural Destination Florida trip began with 25 children, and since then, the charity has continued to touch the lives of countless children in need.
As the children and their caregivers experienced this transformative journey, it was evident how this initiative positively impacted their lives.
Lead nurse Deborah McKenna praised the growth in confidence she witnessed among the children.
Some children had never been away from their parents due to their medical needs or had never been on a plane.
This trip provided them with newfound independence and unforgettable memories.
Ged Mason, CEO of event sponsor Morson Group from Salford, has been a volunteer on Destination Florida trips for an astounding 27 years.
Morson Group has been supporting this initiative for over 30 years, treating children facing serious illnesses with the care and attention they deserve.
With dedicated medical professionals and volunteers, they aim to sprinkle a bit of magic into the lives of these deserving children.
Among the volunteers for this heartwarming initiative was Emma Neville, the wife of former Manchester United legend and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville.
The trip was sponsored by Emma’s business, This Is Me, showcasing the widespread support and involvement of the community in making this trip a reality.
Chair of Trustees Michael Hymanson, an MBE awardee for services to the children’s charity, expressed his delight at overseeing his 14th Destination Florida trip.
He emphasised the profound impact this initiative had on both the children and the dedicated caregivers, who together created unforgettable memories and provided professional care to children facing various medical challenges.
Destination Florida’s commitment to changing the lives of children facing medical adversity shines brightly through this remarkable journey.
Hughie Higginson’s inspiring story, along with the tireless efforts of medical professionals, volunteers, and sponsors, exemplifies the power of community and compassion.
As these deserving children return home with cherished memories, Destination Florida continues to provide hope and support to those who need it most.
