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:

MIAMI, FL — Inter Miami co-founder and owner David Beckham is in talks to transfer Cristiano Ronaldo to the South Florida Major League Soccer team, reports said.
The global superstar has won a record-tying five Ballon d’Or awards for player of the year and was named the FIFA World Player of the Year in 2008, among many other honors. He’s also the all-time leading scorer in international men’s soccer with 117 goals, according to EuroSport.
While Beckham had previously expressed interest in Ronaldo, he recently reached out to the Portuguese player’s representatives, The Sun reported.
The forward has likewise expressed an interest playing overseas in the United States, reports said.
Ronaldo has been a vocal critic of his current club, Manchester United in the English Premier League.
The 37-year-old superstar played for the team early in his career. He was signed for $12 million when he was just 16 years old, a record for a player his age, according to Biography.com. During his time there, he led the team to three Premier League titles.
He left England in 2009 for Real Madrid in Spain. He also spent several years playing for Juventus in Italy before returning to Old Trafford in 2021 and has been unhappy ever since.
In a TV interview with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo said he was disappointed by the lack of changes at Manchester United in the 13 years since he left, The Athletic reported.
“I was in Real Madrid nine years and three in Juventus. And when I arrived, I thought everything will be different, you know, the technology, the infrastructures and everything. But I was surprised, in a bad way, let’s say in that way because I saw everything was the same,” he told Morgan.
He added, “At United, the progress was zero, in my opinion. To compare with Real Madrid and even Juventus, that they follow the rest of the world, so the technology, especially in terms of training, nutrition and conditions of, eat properly and to recover better than before surprised me. Manchester right now to compare with that club, I think it’s behind in my opinion, which is something that surprised me. A club with this dimension should be the top of the tree in my opinion and they are not, unfortunately.”
Ronaldo is part of the Portugal World Cup squad that will compete when the tournament kicks off Sunday in Qatar. Though he’s achieved great success with his club teams and personally, he’s never won a World Cup, the world’s biggest soccer competition.
In the tournament’s first round, Portugal will compete in Group H against Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea.
Sick with a stomach bug, Ronaldo missed a warm-up match between Portugal and Nigeria on Thursday.

A former director of programs and services at the largest day shelter in Massachusetts has been hired as Manchester’s new director of homelessness initiatives, city officials confirmed this weekend.
Adrienne Beloin, who held the director’s position at St. Francis House in Boston, Mass., until this past July, will start her new job in the Queen City on Nov. 28, Manchester Fire Chief Ryan Cashin confirmed in a phone interview Saturday.
City aldermen were informed of the hire in an email late last week.
Beloin takes over for Schonna Green, who resigned her position as Manchester’s director of homeless initiatives in September. The position, which remains under the command of the city’s fire chief, carries a starting annual salary of $97,291.94, plus benefits. Duties include planning, overseeing and directing the city’s response to homelessness.
Cashin said he is happy with the hire.
“Her resume is amazing,” said Cashin. “Speaking with her she has a ton of experience working with homeless residents in Boston. She has a very good clinical background when it comes to mental health issues of homeless individuals. She understands sheltering, affordable housing. She’s ready to hit the ground running and she was by far the most enthusiastic candidate that we saw.”
Beloin served as director of programs and services at St. Francis House for a little over three years, after working as a program manager and access therapist at the Dimock Community Health Center, also in Boston for more than three years.
According to a copy of her resume, Beloin received a Masters in Social Work from the Simmons College School of Social Work in 2004, after graduating in 2000 with a Bachelor’s degree in sociology at Rutgers University.
At St. Francis House, Beloin directed around 100 employees, managers, and associate directors at a day shelter that serves 500 homeless adults per day, and about 6,000 per year.
As director, Beloin oversaw all service delivery, program development, operations, budgets, contract management, and personnel for multiple departments that worked with homeless individuals in the areas of behavioral health, income, and housing while providing basic refuge services, her resume shows.
On LinkedIn, Beloin posted she recently moved back to New Hampshire’s Seacoast area. Cashin said she is well aware of the issues facing the Queen City.
“Yes, 100%,” said Cashin. “The issues down in Boston are not really any different from here, it’s typically the same issue across the country. It’s just the scope of the issue. She’s dealt with a lot of these issues in Boston, where they have some affordable housing issues as well. Her first goal is to try and get as much affordable housing in as possible and try to help move that along, while also coordinating with all the city partners involved with homelessness.”
Cashin said when Beloin starts Nov. 28, the plan is to spend time with each city department for the first few weeks, starting with the fire department.
“We’re gonna do everything we can to help get her welcomed into the city acquainted with the fire department and its role in this, then sitting for several days with each department and meeting the partners the city works with like FIT (Families in Transition) and Waypoint, so she gets to know all the partners involved.”
In the months since Green resigned, city departments have divided up her responsibilities in the interim period until a new director was hired.
Encampment issues have been coordinated by the Neighborhood Enhancement Team (NET) coordinator. Residents can still use the ‘See Click Fix’ app or call 603- 792-3859 to report encampments.
The welfare office and community health workers assisted with connecting “housing insecure” residents with available resources like rental and heating assistance.
She came to Manchester from Port St. Lucie, Florida, where for 21 years she served as director of Florida’s M.I.S.S. Inc. of the Treasure Coast, which she started using a $7,000 grant.
Green submitted a one-sentence letter of resignation to Cashin that gave little insight into the reasons behind her decision.
“I am writing to inform you of my decision to resign as Director of Homelessness Initiatives for the City of Manchester, NH, effective immediately,” is all the letter said.
In the aftermath of Green’s resignation, city departments, nonprofits, and national partners huddled up to determine the best way to move forward.
Feedback was received from stakeholders on what’s working and what needs improvement.
• Because of the demographics of those experiencing chronic homelessness in Manchester, the city needs a person with expertise in not only housing development, but substance use disorder and chronic homelessness. Overdoses are at their highest since 2017, and approximately 50% occur among those experiencing homelessness;
• There is a need for additional support to both address immediate needs within the community (encampments, winter sheltering, etc.) as well as long-term planning;
• The Fire Department is likely not the right department to being overseeing this work. They continue to be very involved in winter sheltering planning through Emergency Operations, and involved with encampment outreach through Squad 1, but don’t have the expertise in housing to provide necessary oversight or collaboration;
• The city needs to prioritize relationships with our nonprofit service providers, identify and fill gaps in services and housing, and implement long-term solutions.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester City reported record revenues and profits for the club in its latest financial statement released on Monday, saying “beautiful football” was the main reason for its success.
Revenues of 613 million pounds ($693 million) for the 2021-22 fiscal year surpassed the figure of almost 570 million pounds ($646 million) the year before for the defending Premier League champion.
Profits of 41.7 million pounds ($47 million) more than doubled the club's previous record.
City chief executive Ferran Soriano credited manager Pep Guardiola for the club’s financial success.
“Our strong revenue performance was due to multiple factors, but ultimately driven by the ‘beautiful football’ we play and the continuous fan growth that it generates; more fans, more audiences, more people in the stadium, and more partners that want to be commercially associated with Manchester City,” Soriano said.
Since being bought by the Abu Dhabi royal family in 2008, City has become one of the most financially powerful clubs in world soccer, winning 14 major trophies and signing some of the biggest names in the sport.
The latest figures show its growth as a commercial business as well.
“In 2008, we gave ourselves the target of exceeding the benchmarks that had been set by others within football; and in doing so, to also exceed the new standards that we believed leading clubs would achieve in the time it would take us to catch up,” chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said. “Our aim was clear — to one day be the club that set the benchmark for others.
“The statistics and results show that in many ways we are beginning to achieve our long-term ambition.”
City's financial power has led to rivals raising the issue of the difficulty of being able to compete in the transfer market, with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp most recently airing his views.
“Nobody can compete with City in that,” Klopp said last month. “You have the best team in the world and you put in the best striker (Erling Haaland) on the market. No matter what it costs, you just do it ... What does Liverpool do? We cannot act like them. It’s not possible.”

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Ivan Toney issued the perfect response to being omitted from England's World Cup squad by scoring both goals in Brentford's shock 2-1 Premier League win at Manchester City on Saturday.
The striker was left out of Gareth Southgate's 26-man squad for Qatar, with Newcastle's Callum Wilson selected ahead of him.
But he showcased the quality his country will miss out on when putting the visitors ahead in the first half and then firing a 98th-minute winner.
The result means Arsenal is guaranteed to top the Premier League until the season resumes at Christmas - while Toney's performance is sure to spark a debate over whether Southgate was right to leave him behind.
“There was disappointment, but I know what I'm capable of,” Toney told BT Sport after the game at the Etihad Stadium. “It won't put me down. I will keep going.”
Defeat for City gives Arsenal a prime opportunity to extend its lead at the top of the table to five points with a win at Wolves on Saturday evening.
Just a week after a late Erling Haaland penalty secured victory against Fulham, the reigning champion was on the receiving end of stoppage-time drama.
Toney put Brentford ahead after 16 minutes with a powerful close-range header after beating Aymeric Laporte in the air.
His winner saw him beat Ilkay Gundogan to turn home Josh Dasilva's cross from the right.
He might have had a hat trick moments later but Kevin de Bruyne cleared off the line.
Phil Foden had fired City level in first-half stoppage time with a half-volley into the top corner - but Brentford and Toney saw a host of chances repelled, with Ederson repeatedly called into action as the forward stretched the home team's defense.
On a day when Haaland cut a subdued figure, it was Toney who won the battle of the frontmen with the type of performance that may have Southgate thinking twice about his decision.
“Fantastic,” said Brentford manager Thomas Frank.. "I can't praise him enough. What I would say, most importantly, is how good a person he is. How emotionally intelligent he is about his teammates.
“But what a player. What a striker. He scored two and should probably have scored one more. Imagine a hat trick here. I thought that was just for Haaland.”
