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 Royal 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 Royal 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:

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — West Palm Beach's new nickname of "Wall Street South" seems to only be gaining momentum as yet another office tower is being proposed downtown.
The Business Development Board of Palm Beach County confirmed reports that a new tower will be located next door to a recently opened office building at 260 Rosemary Ave.
West Palm Beach lately has become a developer's dream, but for some small businesses that have been here a long time, it could be a nightmare.
John Ries, who owns Hot Pie Pizza on Olive Avenue, remembers when the downtown area wasn't exactly the place to be.
"2006, 2009, during the real estate crisis, this town was like a desert," Ries said.
Now Ries' location is hot, along with any other available block downtown.
Headlines are calling West Palm Beach "Wall Street South" because many northeast firms are eyeing the city for a warm change. Those big companies include BlackRock and Goldman Sachs.
"It's certainly become a lot busier in West Palm Beach," local developer Jeff Greene said. "This market's growing."
Greene has two towers under construction downtown — one residential and one business space.
He also has a private school that he said is near capacity and expanding because of relocated professional families.
"We started this school because we felt that our market needed to have a school on par with the finest schools in New York and Boston and Los Angeles," Greene said. "The kinds of families moving here are world-class parents. They've gone to the best colleges, super high achievers, and they are moving to our community."
All this fast growth does come at a cost to people like Ries, who said the squeeze of rising rents and pressure to leave is immense.
"It's definitely going to be an enclave for the rich," Ries said. "What built this town and what built this county was the middle-class, hardworking people of this county, and now they're saying, 'Thank you very much, but here's a kick in the butt.'"
The pizza owner said the growth is adding new pressure on him and other business owners.
"Mom and pop are getting pushed out unless you want to charge $15 for a glass of wine," Ries said.
Kelly Smallridge with the Business Development Board said there are 1.5 million square feet of office either under construction or on the drawing board for West Palm Beach.
She said firms are coming here and aren't just dipping a toe in the sand.
"These companies are signing eight- to 10-year leases," Smallridge said.
Smallridge said there is still a steady stream of Wall Street firms looking at moving to West Palm Beach in the next year.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — Two men from Arkansas are accused of running an illegal gambling business in West Palm Beach.
Dilpreet Singh, 38, and Albaro Lemus, 30, face a number of charges related to gambling. Lemus faces an additional charge of conspiracy. And Singh faces a charge of fraud-money laundering under $20,000.
According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, the illegal gambling happened at All Kings Arcade, which did business as Hot Rodz Arcade on Okeechobee Boulevard, just east of N. Congress Avenue.
Florida "prohibits skill-based slots that pay out cash or other things of value," investigators wrote in their report.
But after several undercover walk-throughs and transactions in July and August, investigators determined the adult arcade is engaged in "Las Vegas style video slot machines for cash prizes and are currently to date operating as illegal gambling houses." Investigators said they found over 30 Vegas-style slot machines in the establishment.
In one test, the undercover agent won $4.15. In another, the undercover agent lost $7.95. And in another test, the undercover agent received $111 in cash winnings.
Singh and Lemus are from Arkansas but had an address in West Palm Beach. According to the arrest report, they'd trade off working as the manager of the arcade while the other went home to visit family in Arkansas.
Investigators said the arcade did not have a business license in Palm Beach County. A county code enforcement team performed a site inspection at the establishment and found several violations. When asked if the business is legal, a worker told Palm Beach County Code Enforcement the business is legal due to the "Chuck-E-Cheese Law," and that people get paid in cash.
Investigators found no evidence the company made payments to the IRS as required to pay the Federal Withholding Tax, Social Security Tax and Medicare Tax for employees. They also couldn't find any records that showed the company had a payroll or made payments to the Florida Department of Labor.
According to the arrest reports, investigators found banking records associated with All Kings Arcade but not Hot Rodz Arcade. The records showed Lemus made more than $10,000 worth of cash deposits. In June, Lemus filed a report of a robbery. He told investigators a frequent customer robbed the money bag while he and another employee were removing earnings from the arcade machines.
Investigators believe the people who worked at the business knew of the illegal gambling, used cash to "disguise the audit trail of the illicit money," and used the bank transactions for "the laundering of proceeds derived from illicit activity such as illegal gambling."
Both men are free on bond following their arrests on Wednesday.

Stephen Ross can’t get enough of downtown West Palm Beach.
Already the biggest office property owner in the city, Ross’ Related Companies now plans a 25-story building that will bring 456,000 square feet of work space and 15,000 square feet of retail to downtown West Palm, according to a company news release.
The tower, called 515 Fern, will rise next to the Brightline passenger train station and steps from the 360 Rosemary office building, which Related completed last year and has fully leased.
Public records show that a half-acre lot immediately east of 360 Rosemary bears the address 515 Fern Street.
The site owner ties to a Montreal-based entity affiliated with Normand Lepine, according to state corporate filings. The ownership entity paid $5 million in 2010 for the lot, which now has a 6,000-square-foot office building, a deed shows.
Construction will start next year, with completion expected by 2025, according to the release.
New York-based Related also is developing the 25-story One Flagler office building, dubbed the “hedge fund tower” for its expected financial tenant base, at the foot of the Royal Park Bridge, overlooking the Lake Worth Lagoon.
Aside from new construction, Related has been on a shopping spree in downtown West Palm. Last year, it purchased the two-tower Phillips Point; as well as CityPlace Tower, which Related originally developed in 2008 with CP Group; and half of the ownership interest in Esperanté Corporate Center for an undisclosed amount.
In February, Related and partners paid $35 million for the Reflections office properties at 400 and 450 South Australian Avenue, also in downtown West Palm.
Ross’ bet on the area started more than two decades ago when Related completed the mixed-use complex Rosemary Square, rebranded as The Square last year, following a facelift.
His wager on offices comes as downtown West Palm has become a magnet for financial firms. Related likely is leveraging its Big Apple connections to help fill its buildings.
Among recent leases, Larry Find’s investment management behemoth BlackRock subleased a 360 Rosemary space that company employees have come to call the “snowbird office.”

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Tropical Storm Fiona is expected to strengthen over the northeastern Caribbean today and is expected to strengthen into a Category 1 hurricane next week, but most forecast models continue to keep the system well east of Florida. A Hurricane Watch has been issued for Puerto Rico.
According to Saturday's 8 a.m. update from the National Hurricane Center, Fiona now has maximum sustained winds of 60 mph and is located 145 miles southeast of St. Croix, moving west at 13 mph.
A Hurricane Watch is in effect for:
A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for:
A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for:
"We need to monitor this system. Not need to worry, but just monitor," said WPTV First Alert Weather meteorologist Kate Wentzel.
On the forecast track, the center of Fiona is expected to move near or just south of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico Saturday into Sunday, and approach the southern or eastern coast of the Dominican Republic Sunday afternoon. Fiona is forecast to move across the Dominican Republic Sunday night and Monday.
Fiona could be near hurricane strength when it reaches the Dominican Republic.
The storm will begin turning toward the northwest on Monday.
The latest forecast track has the storm strengthening into a Category 1 hurricane on Wednesday — with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph east of the Bahamas.
Most forecast models keep the system to the east of Florida and many islands in the Bahamas next week.
"As it gets into the open Atlantic, some models want to take it pretty much due north, while others take it further to the west. So that's why we're waiting and we're watching," Wentzel said. "As we head into the next day or two, computer models will come into better agreement."
Fiona is expected to bring heavy rainfall to the British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, producing isolated flash and urban flooding, along with mudslides in areas of higher terrain.
The British and U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico could see 4 to 6 inches with isolated maximum totals of 10 inches across eastern Puerto Rico. Eastern Hispaniola could experience 4 to 8 inches with isolated maximum totals of 12 inches.
If Fiona does strengthen into a hurricane, it will be the third of the season.

The dues are virtual, but the food is real.
That’s the way it is at Vinyl Fish Club in downtown West Palm Beach, a private-membership restaurant slated to debut in October but already hosting culinary pop-up events under the moniker “Motel No-Tell.”
The venue, formerly the Kurafuto restaurant, is being billed as “South Florida’s first NFT membership restaurant” by the triumvirate of owners: Mykel Stevens (nightlife impresario), Uthman “Moose” Yamusenor (restaurateur) and Jaclyn Milford (founder of the Women of Wall Street organization).
For the uninitiated, NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token. The NFT, in this case a digital art purchase, is stored in a blockchain, the database that encrypts and authenticates NFTs. The Fish Club’s current collaboration is with Miami-based artist Miguel Paredes, no stranger to crypto currency himself.
“It’s about bringing like-minded people into the space,” explains Milford, who divides her time between New York City and West Palm Beach. “You have art collectors. You have investors. It’s like a social membership.
“You get benefits, which are a social club membership for the restaurant, where you get an elevated dining experience. It would be the same as having a social club membership for any restaurant, but since it is an NFT, it means that it’s an investable token, which means essentially you are investing in a membership that could earn you money ... It’s like this is the new era of membership for people.”
At press time, 18 NFTs have been sold, leaving 32 lifetime memberships available. The price fluctuates slightly, but recently a membership cost $1,621.92.
You do not have to be a member to go to Vinyl Fish Club when it opens, but membership will get you invites to celebrity chef appearances, Japanese whiskey/sake tastings, access to a private after-hours lounge, as well as the usual perks of a private club (such as members-only events and menus, reservations via concierge).
The partners are doing the decor themselves for the space, with seating for about 100 people inside and 50 outside.
“We did everything. It was like, ‘We like this, we like that.’ We just brought it all together,” Milford says. “I think that’s what makes it special because it’s sort of our brains were sort of flipped inside out.”
Milford and Stevens met about 10 years ago when they were both launching and promoting Stache Drinking Den in Fort Lauderdale’s Himmarshee Village. While looking for a West Palm Beach location, the two met Yamusenor, who was looking to sell the space that housed his restaurant Kurafuto. Yamusenor liked the pair’s new concept so much that he signed on as a partner.
The name Vinyl Fish Club refers to some serious attention being paid to the restaurant’s audiovisual elements, with the mod lounges and dining room interior design built around their sound system.
“We’re spinning records, it’ll be vinyl records,” Milford says. “So it’s really taking you back to a nostalgic, vintage feel.”
That’s the “vinyl” part of the name. The “fish” part comes from the sushi-forward theme in the cuisine concept.
Milford explains that the restaurant will have an eclectic menu, including omakase (a form of Japanese dining in which the chef selects the dishes). The executive chef is Kazuo Yoshida, who is known as the “Sushi Boss” by the smart set in New York City and The Hamptons.
And while West Palm Beach attracted a lot of people in the finance sector and the tech industry during the pandemic, that is not the main reason the trio chose the city for their first joint effort.
“That’s definitely a huge advantage to us,” Milford says. “When we first decided to incorporate, we were just thinking of how can we create something really special for the area. [But] it is really a benefit for people to understand finance. It’s really that the whole area is booming right now.
“We love that restaurant scene, so community driven,” she adds. “That is really one of the key points of being here. It is people are very loyal in West Palm and very family-oriented. And our concept is exactly that. It’s about bringing the community into our space. You know, people that want to experience a cultural moment.”
