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:

This as-told-to essay is based on a conversation with David, 58, who is moving to Savannah, Georgia, next year after almost 40 years living in West Palm Beach, Florida. He asked to be identified by his first name for privacy reasons, but Insider has verified his identity. The conversation was edited for length and clarity.
I am from a small Midwestern town outside of Chicago, and as a child, I dreamed of moving to Florida. My grandparents were snowbirds. We would drive down to see them, and West Palm Beach's mystique drew me in.
When I graduated college, I was like, "Why not start my adult life there?" I loaded up the car, and I arrived in West Palm Beach on Halloween of 1987. At the time, maybe 80,000 people lived in West Palm, and many knew each other.
But since the pandemic, there has been a cultural and financial shift in Florida.
I am 58 now. I started thinking, "As I get older, do I really want to be here?" I didn't see the bright side of staying, so my husband and I sold our house at a massive profit and bought one in Savannah, Georgia.
When I first came to West Palm Beach, I moved into a great little area I fell in love with. I lived in a condo for two years, and then I bought a property for $150,000 back in 1989 or 1990.
It was great property on a huge lot. During the Great Recession, I took a risk and planned to add onto it.
My brother-in-law, who is a contractor, told me, "You're going to get great prices for everything because we're in the middle of a housing crisis. Everything from concrete to your roof to appliances — we're going to be able to get it at a reasonable price and quickly." We got a $700,000 construction loan, and it worked out well.
In this neighborhood, everyone knew each other. We were tight-knit and neighborly. Many of us would walk dogs, stop on the sidewalk, and chitchat. We used to do a Secret Santa gifting where at 3 a.m. on Christmas morning, we'd leave wine on 30 of our neighbors' front porches.
During the pandemic, the neighborhood changed dramatically.
The number of people who were moving down and spending crazy amounts of money was insane. Their attitudes were so different from what everybody was used to; they were demanding people not familiar with the kind of calm lifestyle we were living. The population doubled with people different from others in our neighborhood.
Many of the people who moved in were in finance, and many already had family money. T??hey were just throwing money out there like it wasno big deal. Like, "Oh, I sold my apartment in New York for $4 million and I bought this for $2 million."
Rolls-Royces, Range Rovers, and Maseratis took over the area without regard for the rules of the road.
We used to walk with our neighbors, their kids, and our dogs. Then suddenly, these cars were speeding through the neighborhood. It would be a short block and the speed limit would clearly be 25 mph, and they would get up to about 60 mph. They're whipping around these curbs and we're like, "What the hell is going on?"
Some people would put an orange cone in the middle of the road to stop this behavior. People became more hesitant to hang out on walks. There was a lot of disrespect for the community in that way — I hear from our friends in the neighborhood that it still goes on and that it's gotten worse.
New residents have added privacy hedges and fences to stay in their bubbles — they started creating cocoons. They started building walls and didn't engage with anybody in the neighborhood. I'm not saying it's good or bad, but it's just so different from what it was.
Homeowners' insurance really started climbing when the Surfside condo building partially collapsed in 2021.
In 2019, I paid about $7,000 per year in homeowners' insurance. The woman who bought my house paid about $22,000 this year. Insurance goes up by between about 30% and 40% per year, and there's nothing you can do about it.
The person who bought my house also pays about $40,000 in property taxes per year. Because of Florida's homestead exemption, which caps the amount an existing homeowner's property taxes can increase per year by 5%, I only paid about $15,000 — still a huge sum of money.
I started thinking about retirement. How was I going to pay these skyrocketing prices on a fixed income? You'll talk to many retirees who are like, "I have to leave because I'm on a fixed income, and I can't afford these property taxes."
Ultimately, we sold the house in 2022 for $2.6 million, and walked away with about $1.8 million in profit.
Since then, we've been living in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, where we rent a condo for $6,000 a month.
My husband and I bought a house in Savannah, Georgia, for about $683,000. We just closed on it last week, and we plan to move there in March.
Savannah felt right. The islands of Savannah reminded us of the old Florida. The home we purchased on Wilmington Island would be triple the cost in our former neighborhood, yet it feels like Florida without the crowds and still retains the smell of the ocean.

The Cipriani family is bringing another real estate development to South Florida.Following the success of the sold-out Mr. C Residences in Coconut Grove, brothers Maggio and Ignazio Cipriani have unveiled what w...
Following the success of the sold-out Mr. C Residences in Coconut Grove, brothers Maggio and Ignazio Cipriani have unveiled what will be West Palm Beach’s first-ever hotel-branded residences. The two have joined forces with Terra and Arquitectonica to build the 25-story Mr. C-branded condominium at 320 Lakeview Ave., which will include a 110-room hotel and 146 private residences priced at $2 million and up. The brothers enlisted Landscape Design Workshop to do up the grounds and Meyer Davis to curate the interiors and amenity spaces.
“Mr. C represents a modern interpretation of old-world sensibilities, and my brother and I are very proud to add this exciting new location to our expanding brand,” said Ignazio in a press statement. “We are happy to align our vision once again with Terra, whose partnership and professionalism we value very much, and add a new relationship with Sympatico, whose reputation is well known in the South Florida market.”
Residences at the swanky new tower will include one- to four-bedroom units ranging from 830 to 2,200 square feet. And depending on the floor, part-time residents and investors looking to defray expenses will have the opportunity to enter their home in the hotel’s rental program.
The property will also feature tons of amenities like a fitness center and spa, a yoga studio, a co-working lounge, a dog run, and a bocce court. There will also be a resort-style pool deck with cabanas, a children’s playground, and a barbecue area. Elsewhere, hotel guests will get to enjoy a Bellini café and restaurant, a library, plus a rooftop pool and jacuzzi.
“Downtown West Palm Beach is emerging as one of South Florida’s most exciting, fastest-growing neighborhoods,” added David Martin, CEO of Terra. “We’ve had strong sales at our Mr. C Residences project in Coconut Grove, and we’re excited to be partnering once again with Ignazio and Maggio for our firm’s first development in West Palm Beach.”
The Ciprianis currently operate a Mr. C hotel in Miami, Beverly Hills, and New York City and have recently expanded their residential portfolio to include Dubai. Construction on the West Palm Beach project is expected to get underway early next year and is slated for completion in 2026. Douglas Elliman will lead the sales, which are anticipated to launch in November.

Palm Beach Post
Plans to create a University of Florida grad school campus in the heart of West Palm Beach have fallen apart. That's a deep disappointment for those who looked to bolster the city's growing corporate presence and enhance downtown life. But the fact that such a complex proposal could come so close to reality should awaken the community to its own potential and encourage all to pursue other innovative projects to shape the city's future.
From the start, planning for the Global Technology and Innovation Campus, on a 12-acre site between Tamarind and Sapodilla avenues, was like building a machine with many moving parts. It required coordination and cooperation of the county, city and other property owners, not to mention of the UF bureaucracy and the Florida Legislature. Unfortunately, the adage about the more moving parts a machine has, the more likely something will break down, proved all too true.
Did plans break down over land donor Jeff Greene's insistence on campus naming rights he'd been promised, or on requiring performance criteria of UF? Or was that dispute a sign of backroom rivalry among philanthropists who wanted their names above the door, too? Did UF just use all that as a convenient excuse to back out, as cover for its internal lack of resolve to get a deal done? Or, was it just sensible management by a brand-new university president to reevaluate such a sizeable undertaking's long-term prospects before moving forward? If it's the latter, we hope he'll reconsider.
Whatever the reason, it's lamentable that the decision to back out came after so much effort by this community on UF's behalf. Countless hours went into it, for approvals, discussions, negotiations, including a year-and-a-half of meetings in which enthusiastic local business leaders helped the university mold its future curriculum, hoping the highly ranked Gainesville-based school's presence in Palm Beach County would help build an infrastructure of intellect here from which all could draw.
Such lamentations don't help, though. The most productive strategy for city and county leaders now is to focus on what we want West Palm Beach to be and to fine-tune the internal mechanisms to bring that about. The effort won't have gone to waste if local leaders can learn from it and prepare to move faster and more effectively toward the next great thing.
One thing that should be clear is the combined sites' wonderful suitability for an innovative combination of high-level academic, corporate and residential uses. It's within walking distance from the planned transit hub, courts and government offices, the Brightline Station and The Square and Clematis Street entertainment areas, not to mention the city's waterfront, and a skip across the bridge to the billionaires' bastion of Palm Beach proper. And it sits atop a coastal ridge that would afford a project commanding views for miles around.
But the real estate won't sell itself if the conditions aren't right. That means the community must be ready to move quickly when external conditions are strong, as the economy is now, and when office and other commercial real estate users nationwide are looking for innovative ways to adapt to the impact of remote work trends. Internally, sometimes-lumbering government agencies will need to expedite decision-making, and landowners and developers will have to learn to be team players.
We're not saying that West Palm Beach and county officials didn't work hard to bring the UF deal to fruition, or that Jeff Greene wasn't right to seek guarantees his donated land would be used for its intended purpose. But whatever was done to overcome the university's reservations and sustain its early enthusiasm, it clearly wasn't enough.
Palm Beach County and its capital city have been on the upswing, though, as years of efforts by the Business Development Board, municipal leaders and real estate developers to attract financial and other companies downtown have been paying off. The BDB's longtime president and CEO, Kelly Smallridge, is on target in encouraging this mid-sized city to think world class, to seek out the best companies and brightest minds. "We have a rare opportunity," she says, and she's right.
We have a lot to offer. We just need to work together.

ROYAL PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — Area residents describe the incident as heartless.
Videos posted on the Ring Doorbell Neighbors app show what appears to be someone dumping their dog in a parking lot and driving off.
The post said Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control came and picked the dog up, CBS12's Katie Bente reports. (WPEC)
It happened in the Royal Palm Beach area near Calypso Bay Waterpark.
Video shows the dog running after the car, with the caption reading in part, “Clearly they knew they were doing something wrong because they backed into a spot once they saw me recording.”
But a second video shows the car eventually driving off and the animal’s reaction is heartbreaking.
The original post now has nearly 2,000 views. But the videos are quickly making their way around the community, with multiple neighbors now reposting the upsetting content on other platforms like the Nextdoor app.
Many shared their reactions in the comment section, calling the incident disgusting, horrible, and heartbreaking.
The post said Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control came and picked the dog up. While no one there was able to comment on the investigation, the shelter’s assistant director David Walesky said there are countless options locally for those who do need to surrender a pet.
“Yeah, most of the dogs that we have right now actually go to rescue groups. We’re very thankful that we have a very active rescue community. They’re able to take a lot of animals from us, and then they're a lot of times better suited to match someone with that animal. You know, they have time to learn that animal special needs special things that it desires and then match it up. With somebody that's the right fit for that animal,” Walesky said.
Not all animals coming into the shelter end up getting adopted. There is a chance they could be euthanized.
But that doesn’t mean dumping a pet is the better choice. In Florida, it’s considered animal cruelty to abandon a pet, and is punishable by up to a year in prison, a maximum of a $5,000 fine, or both.
If you feel like you have no other choice but to surrender your pet, Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control takes them by appointment only.
