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 Palm Beach, 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 Palm Beach, 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:

With the total raised for Hurricane Ian victims through its relief fund now at more than $1 million, the Town of Palm Beach United Way on Wednesday announced that it had received three new matching grants totaling $125,000.
Palm Beach couples Michele and Howard Kessler, Joanie and Murray Goodman, and Gail and Alfred Engelberg are the latest residents to offer matching grants. The Kesslers and the Goodmans will each match donations dollar for dollar up to $50,000; and the Engelbergs will similarly match contributions up to $25,000.
The United Way started its Hurricane Ian Recovery Fund on Sept. 29 to help the residents on Florida's Gulf Coast who were affected by Ian, which made landfall Sept. 28 near Cayo Costa as a strong Category 4 storm.
“If we can inspire more people to continue giving, we’re honored to offer a matching gift,” Michele Kessler said in a statement. “As our west coast neighbors continue to rebuild, so too do we hope our neighbors here in Palm Beach continue to give generously.”
More than one month after Ian hit the state, several communities are still waiting for working electricity and water, the United Way said in a release, and hundreds of families are still in shelters.
“We keep thinking how fortunate we were that this storm did not hit the Palm Beach area,” Joanie and Murray Goodman said in their statement. “We can imagine the devastation it would have caused. That’s why we want to do our part to help our neighbors across the state rebuild their homes and businesses.”
As of Wednesday, the Hurricane Ian Recovery Fund had raised more than $1 million after receiving 14 previous matching grants — all of which were met — from the Cathleen McFarlane Foundation, Sandy and George Garfunkel, Irwin and Ginny Edlavitch, Dorothy and Sidney Kohl, Elizabeth and Jerome Levy, Danielle Moore, Claudia and Nelson Peltz, Laura and Isaac Perlmutter, Joe and Susan Plumeri, Barbara and Richard Rothschild, John and Jana Scarpa, Judy and Bob Snyder, Susan and Dom Telesco, and Norma and Bill Tiefel.
“When we started the hurricane fund in late September, we had no idea we would receive this much support,” Richard Rothschild, who is the United Way campaign chairman, said in a statement. He and his wife, Barbara, gave an initial matching gift of $25,000 to kick start the fund. “We offer our sincerest gratitude to all who have contributed.”
The Town of Palm Beach United Way has distributed at total of $700,000 to the following organizations with teams in the Gulf Coast: American Red Cross ($50,000), Americares ($75,000), Convoy of Hope ($100,000), Global Empowerment Mission ($205,000), NAACP Collier County ($20,000), Project HOPE ($75,000), Samaritan’s Purse ($100,000) and World Central Kitchen ($75,000).
“We’re impressed by the aid the Town of Palm Beach United Way has been able to help fund thus far, and we look forward to helping these devastated communities continue the rebuilding process,” Gail Engelberg said in a statement.
Some organizations have transitioned from providing immediate aid, such as food and water, to focusing on rebuilding efforts, the United Way said, citing Global Empowerment Mission. Its president, Michael Capponi, said the organization recently signed a two-year lease for distribution space in Fort Myers, which he said will play an integral role in long-term recovery.
“It is only with help from organizations like Town of Palm Beach United Way that we can make so much impact in affected communities,” Capponi said.
To donate, visit www.palmbeachunitedway.org, call 561-655-1919 or send a check payable to Town of Palm Beach United Way with “Hurricane Ian” in the memo and mail to 44 Cocoanut Row, Suite M201, Palm Beach, FL 33480.

One year ago this week, the town debuted its newly refurbished marina.
The $38 million facility, which closed for 17 months to make way for a top-to-bottom renovation, reopened with much fanfare on Nov. 1, 2021.
Twelve months later, the marina remains a huge draw for boaters from around the country and overseas.
Its first-year annual and seasonal leases surpassed the budget projections of $8.8 million generated with revenues totaling $9.4 million, Assistant Town Manager Carolyn Stone said.
Additionally, the facility's transient lease revenue of $1.7 million exceeded the $1 million projection for this fiscal year.
"Because we followed the process so closely, we have a successful end product," Palm Beach Mayor Danielle Moore said.
Stone was at the marina last November to welcome the first vessels as they docked.
By the end of the day, nearly 30 had done so.
"It was kind of surreal out there," Stone told the Daily News that day. "Everybody's very excited. We've had a team of consultants, engineers and contractors working on this. There's been a lot of anticipation. As I talked to captains when they arrived this morning in the dark, they were all really happy to be there, and the staff was elated to be doing what we do, which is service our customers."
The marina closed in May 2020 ahead of a major renovation in which all facilities were upgraded.
Work included the expansion of 84 slips to allow larger boats, the replacement of stationary docks with floating docks, a new security system, and upgraded technology that includes high-speed Wi-Fi and enhanced shore electrical power.
The project also included the addition of a fourth dock at the north end of the marina, which was built in the 1940s and most recently renovated in 1998.
The 240-foot Palm Way Dock joined the classic Australian, Brazilian, and Peruvian docks, which were built in segments at Bellingham Marine in Jacksonville and then shipped to Palm Beach.
The marina welcomes vessels from 60 to 294 feet.
Moore, who was involved in early discussions about renovating the marina when she was a member of the Recreation Commission more than a decade ago, said she was proud to play a role in the effort to upgrade the facility, which is currently taking annual and transient reservations.
She also noted the marina's beneficial effect on the town, particularly along nearby Worth Avenue.
"The marina has been everything that I think the town was hoping a new and modern marina would be," Moore said. "The customers are happy, I think the residents are happy, and it's been interesting to see the positive impact the marina has had on Worth Avenue, the restaurants and the general business of the island.
"People who are living on their boats in the marina go to Worth Avenue for dinner. They shop on Worth Avenue, and that's a very positive, unintended consequence."
While the marina's first year has been a successful one, the town continues to address a handful of issues related to the facility.
Most recently, a section of the Peruvian dock broke off during the passage of Hurricane Ian on Sept. 28.
The damage caught town staff by surprise, as the marina was built to withstand a Category 1 hurricane, Dock Master Mike Horn said. Palm Beach County was experiencing tropical storm force winds at the time of landfall.
Crews from Bellingham Marine reattached the 30-foot ''finger pier" Oct. 7, but the town continues to look at options for replacing it, Public Works Director Paul Brazil said.
"The finger pier damage was more than what we would have expected," he said. "That has been temporarily repaired, and we have met with the designers to discuss the design of the replacement pier and a schedule for permanent replacement."
As the marina moves into its second year of operation, its staff will continue to provide a high level of service to customers, Horn said.
"We will provide the same kind of white-glove service to the yacht owners who dock at our marina," he said. "And we will continue to pay attention to the details — booking, supporting, and safety — for everyone, so that using the marina remains a terrific experience."
