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 Mount Hermon, 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 Mount Hermon, 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:

BOONTON – Sometimes, Jordan Robinson just wants to spend more time with her girls. Good thing track meets take hours.
Robinson won the 200 meters on Wednesday, helping Morristown capture the Morris County girls title. When Robinson crossed the finish line, she flashed a model's smile. She also took the time to congratulate nearly every competitor, with special hugs for senior teammate Bayliss Simon and sophomore Nia Freeman.
Record-setting Mount Olive sprinter Anthony Thulin even jogged over to congratulate her, saying, "You blow my mind every time."
The Colonials finished with 93 points over the two-day meet, 10 ahead of Mendham. They placed in sprints, hurdles and jumps, as seven athletes scored.
Delbarton leaned on distance twins Collin and Brian Boler and versatile senior Jeffrey Cianfrocca to defend its team title.
Collin Boler sealed the distance triple, claiming the 800 (meet-record 1:53), 1,600 and 3,200 meters. Cianfrocca defended his high jump title, finished second to Randolph senior Frank Zarro in the long and triple jumps, and also medaled in discus – which was won by Green Wave teammate Nigel McSween. Chuck Nnaeto and McSween were fifth and sixth in discus.
"It's special when I can cross the finish line with the people I love," said Robinson, who is heading to UCLA.
"It's why I run track. … It's so endearing. I tell the girls all the time how much I'm going to miss them when we leave, me and Bayliss. I'm passing the torch."
On Tuesday, sophomores Aaliyah Murphy and Freeman went 1-3 in the 400. Simon and Robinson went 1-3 in the 100. Junior Emma Sweeney was sixth in the triple jump.
Murphy also anchored Morristown's first-place 4x400 in 55.31 seconds.
"Coming into the season, I thought I'd be brand new, very fresh, but it happened," said Murphy, who already helped the Morristown girls win Morris County Relays and the NJAC large-school team titles.
"Going a whole year without training is odd, but the fact that I could come back and do what I do is impressive, even to me. … I have a long way to go. This is only the beginning."
♦ Adianna Agbo was "still in shock" after soaring a personal-best 38 feet, 2½ inches to win the Morris County triple jump title on Wednesday. Morris Hills coach Claire Herman, who is pregnant, leaped to her feet and into the air, shouting for joy.
It was more than a foot farther than Agbo, a Scarlet Knights junior, had ever jumped.
"I never imagined I'd be county champ for anything, ever," Agbo said. "I try to be positive, but I didn't expect this much difference. ... It felt really good when I was running. When I landed, it looked far, so I knew it was a good jump."
♦ Frank Zarro always credits his older brother, Anthony, for contributing to his track and field success. The youngest of a long line of Randolph sprinter/jumpers, Frank Zarro made a huge leap forward on his final triple jump attempt on Tuesday.
Zarro landed in the sand with a mark of 45-6 as head coach Luke Sutille unleashed a massive scream. Zarro crushed his previous best of 41-7½.
"I told (Anthony) even though I don't put in as much triple jump work as long jump, I was coming for both his records," Frank Zarro said with a grin. "It basically felt like I was flying on my last one. Everything felt bigger and more open, close to the perfect jump for me."
♦ Morristown Beard sophomore Spencer Anderson exceeded his own expectations on Tuesday. He didn't expect to beat his personal best of 11.1 seconds in the 100 meters, and certainly didn't foresee qualifying for the final.
Anderson did both, and left Boonton High School as the Morris County champion. His final time was 10.59 – faster than the Morris County record – but it was wind aided and won't count, though the gold medal does.
"I was breaking down behind the bleachers," Spencer's father Corey Anderson said. "I saw it, but I was just in awe. To watch your child, it brings on a different feeling. 'I watched you do something amazing.'"
♦ Morristown sophomore Jason Meza, who switched from wrestling to indoor track this winter, showed off the extra season of training at the county meet. Meza won the 400-meter hurdles and flat 400 in 48.37 – two hundredths off the county record – finished second in the 800, and wrapped up the competition with a 47.86-second anchor split on the Colonials' first-place 4x400.
♦ Morris Knolls senior Laron Blackwell broke the 6-year-old meet record in the high hurdles on Wednesday. Pushed by Boonton senior Clyde Liverpool in the next lane and a 1.9 mph wind, Blackwell finished in 14.4, the No. 1 time in New Jersey this spring.

NEW JERSEY - Here's a report card you can't intercept in your parent's mailbox. And you may want to think twice about living in the one place that was graded with a D-.
Or maybe even a place that got a C, like Deal and Asbury at the Jersey Shore.
Niche has come out with its new 2020 rankings of the "Best Places to Live" in New Jersey, but for at least the fourth year in row, it took a bit of a unique approach: The consumer rankings service assigned a grade, on an A+-to-D- scale, to almost every town in the state.
Nearly 100 communities received A+ grades, topped with towns such as Princeton, Cranbury and Mendham.
To arrive at the rankings, Niche.com took several factors into consideration, such as the quality of local schools, crime rates, housing trends, employment statistics and access to amenities.
Niche created a standardized score for each factor, and after weighting each factor, an overall score was calculated, which was again given a new standardized score.
Finally, Niche.com created a numerical ranking and assigned grades for each place.
Here are the New Jersey towns, and how they were graded:

Syracuse, N.Y. ? The Syracuse basketball coaching staff will hold its annual Elite Camp with high school players coming to the Carmelo K. Anthony Center on Saturday.
And among those prospects will be the No. 1 player in the 2023 class.
D.J. Wagner, a 6-foot-4 guard out of Camden (N.J.) High School, will return to SU’s Elite Camp after taking part in the event two years ago. Last year’s Elite Camp was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Camden High School coach Rick Brunson, a Syracuse native, confirmed that he was bringing three of his players to the camp, including Wagner.
Wagner is ranked No. 1 in the 2023 class by both ESPN.com and 247Sports.com. He is the son of Dajuan Wagner, who played at Memphis and was the sixth overall pick in the 2002 NBA draft. Wagner’s grandfather, Milt, played at Louisville and in the NBA with the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat.
All three Wagners went to Camden High School.
The Elite Camp is generally designed to bring younger high school players to the SU campus to both see the school’s facilities and as well as allowing the Syracuse coaches to evaluate them during play at the Melo Center.
It’s hard to know exactly who will come to SU’s Elite Camp because the roster changes often in the days leading up to the event. The visits are unofficial, so the players all have to make their own travel arrangements and pay their own way. That means they usually have to rely on family, coaches or friends for rides to Syracuse.
The attendance at this year’s camp could also be impacted by families not wanting to travel due to increasing Covid rates. Anyone attending the camp, which is held in SU’s Melo Center, has to be vaccinated.
Brunson said he is bringing two other rising juniors in addition to Wagner: 6-4 wing Cornelius Robinson and 5-10 guard Cian Medley.
Justin Taylor, a 6-foot-6 guard in the 2022 class who has already committed, will be at the camp, according to his mother, Kerri Taylor. Taylor also plans to take an official visit to SU later in the year so he can attend a game, she said.
Peter Carey, a 7-foot center who will be a senior at Northfield Mount Hermon in Gill, Massachusetts, this year, will be at the camp. Carey, who already holds a scholarship offer from Syracuse, confirmed via text that he would attend the camp.
Also expected to attend are J.P. Estrella, a 6-8 forward from South Portland (Maine) High School who is considered a fast-rising prospect in the ‘23 class; Simeon Wilcher, a 6-3 guard in the ‘23 from Roselle (N.J.) Catholic High School; Preston Murphy Jr., a 6-1 point guard in the ‘22 class who attends St. Andrew’s School in Barrington, R.I.; and Reid Ducharme, a 6-4 guard from Brewster Academy who is in the ‘23 recruiting class.
Wilcher already holds an offer from Syracuse.
The Elite Camp usually includes a handful of local players. Some of the locals expected to participate in this year’s camp are Trey Autry, a 6-3 guard in the ‘23 classs and the son of SU associate head coach Adrian Autry; Trevor Roe, the 6-foot-8 son of former SU player Matt Roe; and Liverpool High School’s Andreo Ash, a 6-6 wing who will be a sophomore in the fall.
