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, 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, 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:

This past weekend, the National Weather Service issued its first ever Excessive Heat Warning for Miami-Dade County.
South Florida always feels brutal heat and humidity during its long summers, so why did it take so long to issue such a warning? There's a catch.
Temperatures have stayed above normal in South Florida this summer. Since 1895, Miami had its eighth warmest June on record, and is feeling its hottest July on record so far this year.
But that’s not the reason for South Florida’s first ever Excessive Heat Warning. The National Weather Service is testing out new experimental Heat Advisory and Excessive Heat Warning criteria this year.
All of Florida follows the same criteria for Heat Advisories and Excessive Heat Warnings. The NWS issues a Heat Advisory if the heat index is 108 degrees or higher for at least two hours. An Excessive Heat Warning is issued if the heat index is 113 degrees or higher for at least two hours.
In fact, the current criteria has only led to one Excessive Heat Warning combined between Florida’s four southernmost NWS offices before this past weekend, in 2022 by NWS Tampa.
This year, the criteria for heat alerts is lower for Miami-Dade County. The NWS will issues a Heat Advisory if the heat index is 105 degrees or higher for at least two hours. An Excessive Heat Warning is issued if the heat index is 110 degrees or higher for at least two hours.
On Sunday, July 16, the heat index forecast was up to 110 degrees in Miami, triggering the first ever Excessive Heat Warning. Even though its two neighboring counties to the north, Broward and Palm Beach County, had higher forecast heat indices for Sunday, both were only under a Heat Advisory.
An Excessive Heat Warning for Miami-Dade will go into effect later this morning, as heat indices could reach 110°F-112°F for prolonged periods of time across the county. Heat Advisories also remain in effect for the rest of South Florida through this evening. pic.twitter.com/dWmWGa6J5D— NWS Miami (@NWSMiami) July 16, 2023
According to NWS Miami, “this change is part of a pilot project in partnership with Miami-Dade County, and the new criteria is better aligned with local climatology, as well as recent health data which indicate that significant health impacts from heat occur at heat index values lower than the current advisory/warning criteria.”
The National Weather Service will evaluate this experiment at the end of the heat season, and if successful, the changes could become permanent in 2024 for all of South Florida.
Regardless of heat alerts or time of the year, always exercise caution and stay safe in the heat.

The weeks-long heat wave affecting a vast swath of the U.S. has been particularly noteworthy in one city that was not the subject of many extreme weather headlines this past week: Miami.
The big picture: The city is typically hot in June and July, but this spring and summer has been a different level of South Florida heat.
Zoom in: "This is not 'just summer,'" he said, noting the high air temperature and dew point readings which go into calculating the heat index.
By the numbers: As of Monday, the heat index in Miami had topped 100°F for 37 consecutive days, and 106°F for 13 straight days, McNoldy said.
Between the lines: He pins the heat wave on relatively calm trade winds, which typically blow somewhat cooler air off the ocean, and an area of high pressure that has maintained sunny skies.
Context: Climate change is also making heat waves, including simultaneous land and marine events, more likely to occur and more severe, he noted.

Few rivalries can be defined by a t-shirt but Notre Dame vs. Miami fits that mold. Three simple words tell you pretty much everything you need to know about how the two feel about each other.
Catholics vs. Convicts.
Say no more.
You hear those words and flashbacks to 1988 immediately come to mind regardless of who you’re a fan of.
The once-annual football rivalry is a shell of itself now as the Irish and Hurricanes only meet when the rotation of Notre Dame’s ACC games calls for it.
That is, unless Miami over-books themselves and has to do some rearranging to their schedule.
Although Miami seems to be looking to get out of the ACC, they’re still a member. As long as they are, they’ll have eight conference games and four non-conference games each year.
I’m not sure how an athletic director makes this kind of oversight but someone did and it’s fairly laughable for it to occur. As a result Miami won’t travel to Notre Dame in 2024 but will instead play all non-ACC contests in their home state.
The Miami schedule will consist of those four non-ACC games to be played against:
If you’re scoring at home, all non-conference games will be played in the state of Florida.
Miami moving the South Bend trip to 2026 means that Notre Dame’s previously completed 2024 schedule now has a hole. As it currently sits, Notre Dame’s 2024 slate is:
As you can see above, losing Miami from the schedule in 2024 leaves a rather lackluster 2024 home schedule. Florida State should continue it’s climb under Mike Norvell and that could certainly be a top-10 match-up but the rest?
Northern Illinois, Miami (Ohio), Louisville, Stanford, and Virginia?
Good luck to those in the ticket office.
To make good on the issue Miami (FL) will now make the trip to South Bend in 2026 instead. It’ll be Miami’s first trip to Notre Dame since 2016 when the eventual 4-8 Irish took down the Canes 30-27.
Again, the two will meet in Miami in 2025 for the first time since Miami’s 41-9 beatdown of the Irish in 2017.
Who will replace Miami on Notre Dame’s schedule in 2024?
Your guess is as good as any but the Irish only currently have open dates on October 5 and November 23. I’m guessing that Marcus Freeman and company don’t want to play 11-straight games before getting to their bye week so theoretically you can cross off that November 23 date.
So who out there wants to schedule Notre Dame right when the conference slate is getting underway for many?
Here are 12 teams we certainly wouldn’t mind seeing the Irish play that aren’t currently on the schedule.

Our annual "Broadway-Show-In-The-Sky" is here this weekend with the Perseid Meteor Showers.
While it will be visible tonight through Sunday night, it will peak early Sunday morning, just before dawn, when we could see one meteor per minute.
We have a front-row seat here on Florida’s east coast because it takes place in the northeast sky. For the best view, we recommend getting away from the city lights if you can.
Experts say to ditch the binoculars or telescope and just use your eyes to see the shooting stars.
The dust and debris from each Perseid hit the top of Earth’s atmosphere at thirty-seven miles per second.
It is visible anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere and will be extra special this year because the moon is very low in the sky and only ten percent illuminated.
This should give us a great view all weekend but especially Saturday night.
The Perseids — one of the biggest meteor showers we can see — occur every year in the late summer. Meteor showers happen when the Earth moves through fields of debris floating around in space. The Perseids come from comet Swift-Tuttle, a big ball of ice and rock that sheds pieces of dusty debris as it orbits around the sun. When the Earth passes by, those bits get caught in our atmosphere and burn up, creating the streaking lights. The Perseids get their name from the constellation Perseus, because the meteors’ paths appear to start out from this point in the sky.
During this weekend’s peak, the moon will be a waning crescent — just a small slice in the sky. That’s good news because a bright moon can make it harder to spot the meteors. Last year, the moon was full during the peak. Anyone in the Northern Hemisphere will have a good view this year, as long as the sky is clear of light pollution and clouds. You don’t need any equipment to see them, but you will need to give your eyes around half an hour to adjust to the dark. Avoid looking at your cellphone since that can ruin your night vision.
The Perseids can appear anywhere in the sky. So just “lie on your back, look away from the moon and take in as much sky as you can,” Cooke said.
