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 Mirimar, 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 Mirimar, 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:

In March 2020, a fintech company paid $29 million for a four-story office building in Miramar that it intended to occupy as its main headquarters. Now Fort Lauderdale-based BHG Financial plans to lease out the entire building at 3700 Lakeside Drive to other tenants.
BHG Financial changed its plans during the course of the pandemic as more of its employees worked from home, said Meredith Crawford, BHG's senior vice president of community outreach and public relations.
"At the time, we adopted a remote environment to prioritize the health and safety of our employee base. Since then, the landscape has continued to evolve, and BHG has been agile in responding to how our employees prefer to work while maintaining the most efficient productivity," Crawford said.
Founded in 2001, the company formerly known as Bankers Healthcare Group opened its headquarters in an office building in Davie in 2015. Five years later, BHG closed on a deal to purchase the 3700 Lakeside building from David Berger and Ezra Katz with the intent on making the office its new HQ.
BHG later opted to move its headquarters into a 10,000-square-foot space in The Main Las Olas, a Class A office building in downtown Fort Lauderdale for use as a collaborative space for its hybrid workforce. Today, the firm, which provides personal and small business loans, employs 530 people in Florida and more than 1,000 people across the U.S. "In total 90% of BHG employees nationwide choose to work remotely," Crawford said.
South Florida's office market has generally prospered as more companies relocate to the area, although office transactions has slowed due to higher interest rates. Not helping is a general skepticism among banks to finance office deals due to remote working trends across the U.S.
In Miramar, demand for office space remains relatively strong in general, but mainly for flex office product in industrial buildings, said Jonathan Kingsley, a vice chairman at Colliers. Broward's office market in general has been dominated by smaller office deals. "The market for large tenants in Broward County, particularly in the suburbs, has dried up completely," he said.
The 3700 building, built in 1996 and renovated in 1998, is about 145,755 square feet in size, according to property research website Reonomy. About 132,000 square feet of office is available for lease at $25 per square foot, not including maintenance, taxes, and utilities, said Christina Stine Jolley, senior vice president of Blanca Commercial Real Estate.

The water coming from one of Miramar’s two water treatment plants is not being treated properly and is causing major damage to copper pipes used by thousands of residents and businesses, according to a lawsuit filed in Broward on Wednesday.
The lawsuit, which seeks class-action status, names eight plaintiffs who say their copper pipes have “developed pitting or pinholes and must be replaced.” The cuplrit, they say, is the city’s West Water Treatment Plant, which, according to the lawsuit, removes certain minerals from water but fails to replace it, leaving copper pipes vulnerable to corrosion.
The issue concerns the effect of water on pipes, according to the plaintiffs’ lawyer. The water in Miramar is safe for cooking, bathing, washing and drinking, and there’s no allegation being made to suggest otherwise.
The city manager’s office responded about Wednesday’s lawsuit by saying it “is similar to the subordination lawsuits filed in 2019. Those cases were dismissed with prejudice.”
The Broward circuit judge at the time ruled he was bound by a 1985 court decision in Clearwater that said “a municipality, as a provider of water services, does not have a duty to provide water which will not corrode its customers’ pipes.”
The city has previously acknowledged the issue but has denied blame. In 2018 Miramar hired an engineering consulting company, Kimley-Horn, to review the West Water Treatment Plant’s procedures and the water quality. The lawsuit accuses the city of failing to adopt Kinley-Horn’s recommendations to add corrosion control to the treatment process.
Three years later, Kinley-Horn was again asked to review the water quality. “Based on the historical water quality and sampling information provided, there is no indication that the finished water quality from the city’s [water treatment plants] have contributed to accelerated corrosion,” according to the Kimley-Horn findings posted on the city’s website.
Something else is likely to blame for the corrosion problems, the study concluded.
The West Water Treatment Plant serves city residents and businesses between Palm Avenue and Southwest 196th Avenue.
The city has been offering $10,000 loans to homeowners at a 1% interest rate, giving homeowners five years to pay it back.
That’s not good enough, say homeowners.
“My wife and I were shocked to hear that the cost of this repair could be upwards of $20,000,” said Enrique Antezana, one of the plaintiffs. “Buying our home was a serious investment, and this was supposed to be a happy time in our lives! It was disheartening to know that we would be paying so much for a repair on our first house right away.”
Plaintiffs’ attorney Leslie Kroeger, a partner with Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll, warned that the severity of the issue will only become clear when more leaks are discovered in more homes. She anticipates hundreds of homeowners, maybe thousands, will be directly affected.
“It really depends on how many have copper plumbing and when the leaks will be discovered,” Kroeger said.

Rockpoint is once again behind a blockbuster South Florida trade.
The Boston-based firm, along with partner Altman Companies, sold a newly completed multifamily complex for a combined $295 million.
The trade includes two properties in Miramar, Fla., both of which were completed last year. Located at 11385 SW 30th Court, the 320-unit Altis Miramar sold for $149 million, according to property records. Atra Miramar is a mile and a half south of Altis at 2750 SW 113th Lane. It features 330 apartments and traded for $146 million.
To fund the Miramar purchases, the buyer, AvalonBay Communities, a Virginia-based REIT that specializes in multifamily rentals, sold three properties in Elmsford, N.Y., for a combined $306 million, AvalonBay stated in its latest earnings report.
AvalonBay’s acquisition ranks among the largest gross multifamily trades in South Florida. Earlier this year, a joint venture led by Harbor Group International (HGI)bought a complex in Downtown Miami for over $400 million, which remains the priciest rental purchase. Last month, HGI spent $185 million for a property in Brickell.
Taking advantage of South Florida’s sizzling real estate market, Rockpoint has offloaded its portfolio in the region, across asset classes. It sold an office tower in Brickell to hedge fund Citadel for $286.5 million, making it Miami’s priciest trade since the pandemic hit over two years ago. The investor later offloaded an outdoor mall, also in Brickell, for $216 million.
In Miramar, Rockpoint and Altman paid a combined $26.5 million for the developable parcels in 2019 and shortly thereafter secured a $98 million loan from PNC Bank, per records.
Along the beach in Bal Harbour, Rockpoint is developing a condo building with the Related Group and Two Roads Development.
A spokesperson for Rockpoing declined to comment. Representatives for Altman and AvalonBay did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
