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 Ogdensburg, 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 Ogdensburg, 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:

When it comes to natural beauty, Americans say all the best spots in the Garden State are in North Jersey, a new poll says.
Luxury small-ship operator Aqua Expeditions, which mostly cruises exotic locales in South America and Southeast Asia, does not cover a lot of turnpike territory. But its poll of 2,100 Americans on which natural landmarks they would most like to visit definitely has some Jersey flair.
The company released a list of the top 250 landmarks on Thursday. Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which lies on the border between North Carolina and Tennessee and is the most-visited national park in the nation, came in first. Niagara Falls was second.
Eventually, poll respondents found their way to New Jersey, where their favorite landmark was Lake Hopatcong,the state's largest lake, on the Morris and Sussex county border. It finished 164th overall on the list.
Ignoring Central Jersey, Shore points and other notable exits south of Route 22, Americans also voted for Great Falls National Historical Park in Paterson (165th overall), the Palisades cliffs in Bergen County (166th), the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in Morris County (199th) and the Sterling Hill Mining Museum in the Sussex County town of Ogdensburg (243rd).
"In this time of radical climate change, we are so gratified to hear that Aqua Expeditions has confirmed what we've always known — that the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge is a unique treasure for people of every age," said Sally Rubin, executive director of the Great Swamp Watershed Association. "It is so wonderful to have this ecological oasis a mere 25 miles from midtown Manhattan."
Aqua's CEO, Francesco Galli Zugaro, added, "Nowadays, travelers are searching for more meaningful experiences in which they can witness and learn firsthand about a destination's biodiversity and cultural heritage, as well as gain a broader perspective of the world around them."
America's top 10 natural landmarks, according to the poll:
1. Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains National Park2. New York’s Niagara Falls3. Missouri’s Elephant Rocks4. Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park5. California’s Redwood National and State Parks6. Hawaii’s Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park7. Hawaii’s Hanauma Bay8. Iowa's Pikes Peak State Park9. Arizona's The Grand Canyon10. Hawaii's Waik?k? Beach

TRENTON – Twenty-seven school districts around New Jersey are receiving a portion of just over $26 million in state aid to establish or expand access to preschool programs starting next month.
The funding adds nearly 2,150 additional seats in preschool classrooms, increasing the state’s overall total to nearly 70,000.
Gov. Phil Murphy’s goal is to have the state eventually provide universal preschool for every 3- and 4-year-old – but that could take until 2030 and would have to be a priority shared by his successor. His term ends in January 2026, and he is constitutionally prohibited from seeking re-election in 2025.
“We know that providing children with access to preschool programs creates short- and long-term educational and economic benefits for families,” Murphy said. “When we invest in preschool education, we also invest in our youth and in the future success of the state of New Jersey for decades to come.”
The state requires the districts to be able to provide a high-quality preschool program, defined by a full-day program with a certificated teacher, an aide and small classes that are inclusive of children with special needs who have an individualized education program.
The 2023 state budget includes $40 million for preschool expansion grants. The state said the remaining funds will be awarded in the future.
In addition to the expansion aid, the state is spending $950 million on preschool aid to 209 other school districts. Click here for a list of those districts.
In July, the Department of Education expanded the number of districts eligible for preschool expansion aid by including those in which at least 10% of students, rather than 20%, are from families with incomes low enough to qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.
Fifteen of the 27 districts getting the expansion aid would not have been eligible if the 20% threshold was still in effect.
The districts receiving the preschool expansion funds are spread around 13 counties. Last year, those districts enrolled 779 half-day preschool students and 430 full-day preschoolers, compared with 4,104 kindergarteners.
Here are the recipients and the amounts they are receiving:
Linwood in Atlantic County | $360,797

RICHMOND, Va. – The University of Richmond football team wrapped up the spring practice season Saturday with the annual Spring Game that saw the White team prevail 14-13 over the Blue team when cornerback Aamir Hall (Baltimore, Md.) broke up a two-point conversion attempt as time expired.
Redshirt freshman wide receiver Ja'Vion Griffin (Williamston, N.C.) was named the Most Valuable Player of the Spring Game. Griffin led the White team with four catches for a game-high 85 yards. He caught two touchdown passes from Jackson Hardy (Lawrenceville, Ga.), one a 15-yard score and the second a 42-yard touchdown strike that proved the game-winning score.
Graduate quarterback Reece Udinski (North Wales, Pa.) made his Richmond debut and was efficient in the first half. Udinski completed 14-of-20 for 78 yards and a touchdown in the opening 24 minutes of the game that was played with a running clock. He connected on a five-yard scoring strike for the Blue team with Leroy Henley (Pompano Beach. Fla.).
The Blue team rallied on the final drive of the day, scoring a touchdown in the closing seconds. Quarterback Kyle Wickersham (Metairie, La.) connected on a five-yard strike with tight end Brooks Heagarty (Gallatin, Tenn.) setting the stage for the game-ending two-point conversion attempt.
Following the game, head coach Russ Huesman and the coaching staff awarded the Gus Lee Winter Warrior Award. The award is given in honor of the life of Spider Gus Lee, who lost his life in 2018. The Gus Lee Winter Warrior award goes to the member of the team who has made the biggest strides during offseason workouts and practice, through a demonstrated commitment in strength and conditioning, practice habits, and overall attention to improving their craft.
Redshirt junior defensive end Marlem Louis (Venice, Fla.) was this year's recipient of the Gus Lee Winter Warrior award. Previous recipients have included Seyoum Settepani, Maurice Jackson and Billy Caughell.
Huesman also announced the 2022 team captains for the Spiders, as voted on by the players. The captains for 2022 include redshirt junior linebacker Tristan Wheeler (Bethlehem, Pa.), redshirt senior running back Aaron Dykes (Knoxville, Tenn.) and redshirt senior defensive tackle Aidan Murray (Ogdensburg, N.J.).
