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 Miami Lakes, 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 Miami Lakes, 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:

"The Hill We Climb," the poem written by Amanda Gorman for President Joe Biden's inauguration, was moved out of the elementary section of one Miami-Dade County public school, the district confirmed Tuesday. It remains available to older children.
A parent of a student at Bob Graham Education Center - a kindergarten through eighth grade school in Miami Lakes - objected to the poem, for which they erroneously listed Oprah Winfrey as the author/publisher, documents obtained by the Florida Freedom to Read Project show.
It "is not educational and have (sic) indirectly hate messages," the complaint said, adding that the poem would "cause confusion and indoctrinate students."
The same parent made similar complaints about "Love to Langston," a poetry-based biography of Black poet Langston Hughes; "The ABCs of Black History" and two books about Cuba, complaints obtained by FFTRP show.
A materials-review panel at the school declined to remove the books from the school entirely, but did decide to move the Gorman poem and two other disputed items to the library's middle school section, which is for grades six through eight, minutes of an April meeting of the committee, also obtained by FFTRP, show.
Gorman, the nation's first-ever youth poet laureate, criticized the decision, writing on Instagram, "Robbing children of the chance to find their voices in literature is a violation of their right to free thought and free speech."
In a statement to CNN Tuesday evening, Miami-Dade County Public Schools spokesperson Elmo Lugo said, "No literature (books or poem) has been banned or removed."
"It was determined at the school that 'The Hill We Climb' is better suited for middle school students and, it was shelved in the middle school section of the media center. The book remains available in the media center," he said.
Lugo did not respond to a request to verify the authenticity of the complaint documents released by the Florida Freedom to Read Project, instead saying the district would process CNN's inquiry as a formal public records request.

Updated, March 21, 9:15 a.m.
The Ward Law Group paid $21 million for a Miami Lakes office complex, with plans to move the personal injury firm’s headquarters.
The Kislak Organization, the Kislak family’s real estate investment and brokerage firm, sold the nearly 77,000-square-foot, two-building property at 7900 Northwest 154th Street, according to records. The Ward Law Group provided the purchase price.
The deal breaks down to roughly $273 per square foot.
The complex, which sits on 5 acres, is called Kislak Office Plaza. It consists of a three-story office building, which was completed in 1986; and an adjacent building with a garage, which was completed between 2021 and this year, according to records and real estate database PropertyShark. In 2019, The Kislak Organization filed a notice of commencement for the development of the second building.
The Ward Law Group, which specializes in representing clients who have been in car accidents, currently has its headquarters a mile and a half away at the Hundredfold Business Center at 6625 Miami Lakes Drive in Miami Lakes. Purchasing and moving to the Kislak Office Plaza will allow the firm to hire additional attorneys, according to a news release.
Founded in 2012 by Greg Ward and Jany Martínez-Ward, The Ward Law Group has more than 125 employees in Miami Lakes, as well as in Ecuador, India, Nicaragua and the Philippines, according to the release. It also offers services in Spanish.
The Kislak Organization was founded in 1906 by the late Julius I. Kislak in Hoboken, New Jersey, as a brokerage, according to its website. Since then, it has grown to also invest in real estate, as well as offer insurance, mortgage, banking and property management services. Thomas Bartelmo is CEO.
Kislak is based at the Miami Lakes office complex the company sold. The firm didn’t immediately return a request for comment on whether it will keep its headquarters there.
Among its other real estate deals, Kislak sold the six-building Plantation Professional Park at 6710–6834 West Sunrise Boulevard in Plantation for $11.3 million in 2019.
The Ward Law Group is the latest legal firm to purchase real estate. Last year, Miami attorney Alex Hanna and his wife, Lizet Hanna, paid $15 million for the offices at 4231 West Flagler Street in Miami.
Although Miami Gardens is a suburban office market, it has experienced some investment sales activity in recent months. In May, Bal Harbour-based Lionstone Development paid $16.8 million for a newly renovated, three-story office building at 5901 Miami Gardens Drive.
While South Florida office leasing has been strong over the past two and a half years, higher interest rates have made financing more expensive, leading to a reduction in commercial real estate sales in recent months, including for offices.

MIAMI LAKES, FLA. (WSVN) - Amidst the pursuit of academic excellence and memorable moments with friends, one senior at Miami Lakes Educational Center stands out as a remarkable student deserving of accolades and more. Melanie Fernandez has proven herself to be a true multitasker, excelling in both her studies and extracurricular endeavors.
From engaging in lighthearted activities with her peers to taking on the role of a teaching assistant in the robotics lab, Fernandez demonstrates exceptional dedication to her passions. Notably, she recently showcased an impressive animation during a presentation, captivating her audience with her creative talent.
“I’ve always wanted to create things or be a part of something to make a change,” said Fernandez.
Already well on her way to success, she boasts an impressive resume filled with multiple internships and published research. She has made significant strides in the field of medicine, focusing on Alzheimer’s disease at the University of Miami.
“I actually felt like I was making a difference and I was contributing to a body of research that people were going to reference to understand the genetics of different ethnic groups to understand how Alzheimer’s disease progresses differently across different groups,” said Fernandez.
She even collaborated with Johns Hopkins University on a groundbreaking project: the development of an insertable ankle brace designed to prevent injuries in soccer players.
“More of it is coming from a stability standpoint, like stabilizing all the ligaments while still maintaining a good range of motion so one can play as a regular athlete,” explained Fernandez.
With a focus on stability and maintaining range of motion, this innovation has the potential to revolutionize athlete safety.
Beyond her remarkable achievements, Fernandez holds leadership positions as the President of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers Jr. and as a member of the Technology Student Association. Known for her kindness and willingness to help others, she has positively impacted the lives of her peers.
“She’s just a wonderful person overall,” said one teacher. “Melanie has helped me as much as I’ve helped her.”
Her passion for math, science, and people intertwines seamlessly, making her the ideal candidate for her future endeavors.
Fernandez has been accepted to Vanderbilt University, where she will pursue a degree in medical engineering, having received numerous scholarships in recognition of her exceptional abilities.
Reflecting on her high school journey, Fernandez emphasizes the importance of hard work and perseverance.
“Had work will always reward itself and I think I really learned that through high school,” she said. “You can never really give up on something so quickly because maybe you try it one more time and that was the right answer. Maybe you try it two more times and suddenly you’re published. So, it’s about that idea and it’s about contributing to something much greater than me.”
Tuesday morning, Fernandez and her fellow seniors will celebrate their graduation at the Ocean Bank Center at Florida International University.
As they embark on their next chapter, Fernandez’s classmates eagerly anticipate witnessing her future successes and the positive impact she will continue to make in the world.

The Harris Chain of Lakes in Central Florida is one of the state’s best bass fishing destinations. But after visiting Lake Harris for the first time with Bassmaster pro Tim Frederick as my guide, the fishing was even better than I’d expected.
“The Harris Chain is a great place to fish no matter what you like to do as far as bass fishing, crappie fishing, shellcracker, bluegill, it has a mixture of everything,” Frederick said. “It has a variety of different covers: Kissimmee grass, a little hydrilla, trees, lily pads. It kind of fits every bass fisherman’s style because you can do anything. It’s a healthy, healthy fishery, and it’s fun.”
I was covering an Epson Tour golf tournament, the 2023 Inova Mission Inn Resort & Club Championship on the resort’s El Campeon course in nearby Howey-in-the-Hills, but I had time for some early morning fishing. I connected with Frederick through a mutual friend, bass pro Bernie Schultz, who said, “No one knows that chain better.”
Frederick, who grew up in Leesburg and was so dominant in tournaments on the chain that he left his job building custom closets to become a full-time pro, had just come home after three events and 24 days on the road.
I met him on an overcast morning at a boat ramp on Little Lake Harris, one of nine lakes in the chain, and he headed north in his 21 1/2-foot Falcon bass boat to a spot where he and his son had caught about 50 largemouth bass a couple of evenings earlier. When we arrived, a member of a local bass club was fishing the spot, so Frederick idled a few hundred yards away to a wooden boat dock extending across a bed of Kissimmee grass from one of the many homes on the picturesque lake.
Casting a shallow-running American Baitworks crankbait, Frederick quickly caught a bass and told me where to throw my lure. After a couple of casts, a feisty bass slammed my crankbait. Those two fish were the first of what turned out to be dozens of largemouths for us, and we frequently reeled in bass at the same time.
It was nonstop catching and releasing for two hours, until I had to return to the golf course at Mission Inn, which has a small marina on the lake that offers rental boats and boat slips.
Frederick noted that given all the different habitats and water on the Harris Chain, it could be difficult to decide where to fish.
“For a first-time angler on this body of water, don’t get overwhelmed, just get on a shoreline and fish,” he said. “I think you can get on a Kissimmee grass line and never lift your trolling motor, whether you’re flipping grass or throwing a lipless crankbait like a Rat-L-Trap.
“Obviously, there’s key spots here and there, but you’ll figure that out along the way. Hard bottom is what you want to find, whether it’s sand or shell beds off the Kissimmee grass. What happens on those shell bars is there’s mussels on them and it keeps the baitfish around. The bluegills eat the mussels and the bass eat the bluegills.”
Frederick, 54, started fishing bass tournaments by himself on the Harris Chain when he was 15. Over the years, he won numerous events and dreamed of turning professional to fish the major bass circuits.
“But I thought, ‘Here I am just a little country kid from Lake County.’ I didn’t know how to go about it or anything,” Frederick said. “As I got older, you’re working and you’re fishing on the weekends. I started fishing a trail that went all over Florida and I had some success on that, I was the leading money winner.”
As the expenses of traveling to and fishing in tournaments increased, Frederick needed to get some sponsors to help defray the costs. His first, in 2006, was Power-Pole. The Tampa company, which makes an innovative anchoring system for boats and recently introduced a trolling motor, still sponsors Frederick, who fishes Bassmaster Opens in the hopes of advancing to the Bassmaster Elite series. The truck he uses to tow his boat around the country is provided by another major sponsor, Eagle Buick GMC in Homosassa.
Frederick qualified for the former FLW Tour for 2016, but he needed help with the $30,000 in entry fees. Lake County, which is home to most of the Harris Chain, stepped up and Frederick, who won the 2018 FLW event on Lake Okeechobee, serves as the chain’s ambassador, recruiting major tournaments to the area.
“My job was tough in the beginning, but it’s gotten a lot easier because now everybody wants to come here,” he said. “It’s an amazing resource that we have. It’s a fisherman’s paradise.”
And it won’t take you more than a few casts to find that out.
