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 Morristown, NJ 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 Morristown, NJ 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:

MORRISTOWN, NJ — The national bakery café chain Paris Baguette is moving into Morristown.
The chain, which offers sandwiches, hand-crafted cakes, breads, and coffee drinks, told Patch that they will be opening up their newest location at 10 Lafayette Avenue.
According to Paris Baguette Chief Development Officer Eric Lavinder, the goal is to be ready to open the store within the next year.
"We have a lease signed, and we're working on construction plans as we speak. Typically, construction can take 14 to 18 weeks, give or take some permitting challenges, equipment, contractors and that kind of stuff, but we would definitely hope to be open mid-next year," Lavinder said.
Paris Baguette is in the midst of a national expansion plan. Their newest Morristown location will bring the total number of Paris Baguette cafés in the county to more than 150. The nearest existing Paris Baguette in New Jersey is in Livingston.
Paris Baguette is a bakery café franchise with more than 4,000 units across the globe. The brand was first franchised in the U.S. in 2015 and has since established more than 150 locations in markets across the country, making it one of the premier franchise opportunities in its category.
According to Lavinder, the move to Morristown just made sense for the company because their headquarters are in Moonachie, which is only one hour away from the new Morristown location.
"We're excited to expand, but also excited to bring it to what we consider somewhat of a local community to where we are," Lavinder said. "You know, it took us a while to find the right location because we want to make sure that we set our franchisees up for ultimate success. This kind of worked out perfectly for us," he continued.
Once they are open, the café is expected to bring in anywhere from 25 to 50 jobs to the area, officials said.
"It's not just a fast food restaurant. It's really a skill that people learn that they can elevate and grow into within the franchise. There are a lot of different levels to our complexity that allow them the ability to learn some good transferable skills as they grow their experience in the workplace," Lavinder said.
While the chain is well-known for its breads and pastries, it also serves up salads, sandwiches and seasonal items and offers catering.
Some of the more unique items on the menu include:
"You can come in and get daily pastries and daily items. We're really about creating that vibe—that old nostalgia of the neighborhood bakery cafés that we were all probably used to a long time ago. We're bringing that back and are really excited about the fact that we're bringing something, something that we believe is unique to the marketplace," Lavinder said.

MORRISTOWN, NJ — PrimoHoagies, the gourmet specialty sandwich chain, has set a date for the grand opening of their newest Morristown location.
According to officials, the newest location will officially open on Oct. 26 at 10 a.m., with a ribbon-cutting ceremony set to begin promptly at 9:45 a.m.
The store, located at 44 Speedwell Ave., Morristown, is owned by local residents Patty Babb and Drew Busa.
“We're beyond excited to introduce Morristown to the authentic flavors and quality that PrimoHoagies is known for,” said Babb. “It’s an exciting new chapter for us, and the vibrant energy and growth in this city make it the perfect place for our second venture.”
Babb and Busa are excited to establish their second PrimoHoagies store, following the success of their first, which opened earlier this year in Byram.
Babb, who also already owns six Dunkin' Donuts outlets in the area with her husband, Russ, met Busa while working at their various sites. Babb said she saw Busa as the ideal candidate to co-own their upcoming PrimoHoagies after being impressed by his drive and abilities.
The location was carefully chosen by the team, who recognized Morristown's attraction as a burgeoning hub for new businesses and a magnet for young residents, showing a unique urban environment in North Jersey.
The 1,800-square-foot store is expected to employ about 15 people, with dine-in seating, takeout, and delivery options. PrimoHoagies also offers catering, including its popular hoagie trays, which are perfect for special events, gamedays and luncheons.
The Morristown location will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
"To celebrate Morristown’s new favorite hoagie destination, PrimoHoagies is offering the first 100 customers in line on Oct. 26 a free Primo Size Hoagie. For the rest of Grand Opening Day, customers who enroll in the rewards program will enjoy Primo Size Hoagies for just $6.99," officials said.
In addition to the great opening celebrations, PrimoHoagies is launching an exciting "Golden Ticket" promotion that will continue for the entire week following the grand opening.
Ten golden tickets will be randomly put among Hoagies, and lucky customers who find them will be able to redeem them for a $25 PrimoHoagies gift card at the Morristown location.
PrimoHoagies is a Philadelphia-founded sandwich company known for "mouth-watering hoagies piled high with top-quality meats, cheeses, and a unique blend of spices."
PrimoHoagies uses recipes passed down through the generations for its iconic hoagies. It layers Thumann’s meats and cheeses, a secret blend of spices, and locally sourced fresh vegetables onto award-winning, seeded rolls that are baked fresh throughout the day.
The casual restaurant’s diverse menu features a variety of cold and hot hoagies, cheesesteaks, wraps, vegetarian options, antipasti salads, chips, drinks, fresh-baked cookies and more.
Situated at 44 Speedwell Avenue, the sandwich shop will be taking over the former location of Playabowls, which closed down last June and relocated to 14 North Park Place.

The former chair of the Morristown Housing Authority has been charged with theft after Morris County officials say she used a company-issued credit card to take nearly $25,000 earlier this year.
Maureen Denman, 61, made 97 ATM withdrawals totaling $24,860 between Feb. 10 and April 6, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed last Friday by the Morris County Prosecutor's Office. The complaint also states that she changed the status of a credit card issued by the housing authority "without authorization to do so," which allowed her to make the withdrawals.
Denman was executive director of the Morristown Community Development Corporation, a subsidiary of the housing authority, at the time of the alleged crimes. She is also listed online as the chair of the Morristown Environmental Commission as well as acting treasurer of the town Democratic Committee.
Housing authority executive director Keith Kinard described the Morristown Community Development Corporation as a "development arm" of his agency, with a mission to explore new affordable housing opportunities in Morristown. He confirmed to the Daily Record that Denman served as chair of the housing authority before leaving for the offshoot organization.
"Any alleged theft was related to her role with [Morristown Community Development Corporation]," he said.
Kinard reported the suspected theft and fraud by an employee to the prosecutor's office on Aug. 2, according to the affidavit. An investigation revealed that Denman conducted unauthorized withdrawals with a Lakeland Bank credit card issued by the Morristown Community Development Corporation to use for "families in need."
Denman did not comment on the allegations but provided a statement Wednesday night from her attorney, W. Michael Murphy. Murphy highlighted his client's years of volunteer service to Morristown and called her "a source of assistance to numerous individuals who have suffered from challenging issues."
"Her friendship and mentoring remains a source of comfort and inspiration to countless friends, family members and neighbors," Murphy said. "Over the next several months she will steadfastly address the issues that have arisen during her time of service to the Morristown Housing Authority."
Denman is facing third-degree theft and fraud charges, the affidavit said. She has an appearance in Morris County Superior Court scheduled for Oct. 18.
