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 Saddle River, 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 Saddle River, 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:

SADDLE RIVER — The Borough Council introduced repeals Monday night for two revised ordinances intended to update a proposal to bond and purchase a $1.7 million single-family home on Mill Road.
The revised ordinances were approved by the council on May 8 in response to a complaint filed on April 6 by Concerned Citizens of Mill Road. The neighbors contended that the wording of the original ordinances, approved on March 20, was illegal because it failed to specify that the property would be used as a future affordable housing site.
But the April 6 complaint was dismissed by Superior Court Judge Christine Farrington on May 9. She ruled that the wording of the March 20 ordinances was "adequate in accordance with statutory requirements," even if it did not mention the property's potential use for affordable housing.
Also on May 9, however, a second complaint was filed against the borough on behalf of neighbor Stephen Sweeney of Twin Brooks Road. Attorney Michael Saffer argued that the May 8 revised ordinances which specified the intended use as "affordable housing or other public uses," were also faulty, and that the borough had entangled itself in procedural sequences that would render the purchase illegal.
Borough Attorney David Lafferty notified Farrington on May 12 that repeals for the May 8 ordinances would be introduced Monday, with a public hearing and adoption scheduled for June 12. Lafferty said Monday that the May 8 ordinances would be repealed because the borough is not allowed to have two sets of ordinances applying to the same property. The March 20 ordinances confirmed by Farrington would remain, he said.
Lafferty declined to say what the future of the property would be, only that he expected to meet with borough officials on that question. The borough was scheduled to close on the property on May 5. Lafferty would say only that the borough has not yet done so.
Sweeney said Tuesday that he plans to appeal Farrington's ruling on the March 20 ordinances.
"Despite the repeal of the ordinances adopted May 8, we will pursue vigorous litigation to thwart the opaque and clearly deceptive intentions of the mayor and council," Sweeney said.

SADDLE RIVER — The borough is proposing the installation of a $583,928 "trail network system" in the western 9 acres of the 24-acre Rindlaub Park.
The walking trails would be accessed via a $1.45 million covered footbridge under construction over the Saddle River to join the two park parcels. Previously, the western part of the park was inaccessible except through neighboring Waterford Gardens.
The borough is seeking unspecified Green Acre funding for the project, which was the subject of a public hearing late last month. The proposal is posted on the borough's website homepage, saddleriver.org.
"This will increase our parkland by almost 50% and add significant opportunities for passive recreation," Mayor Albert Kurpis said Tuesday. "Residents will enjoy new areas of woodlands along the Saddle River as well as have access to a 3-acre pond. The pond is a beautiful natural breeding ground for many species of waterfowl and is the home of two resident swans."
The park is south of East Allendale Road between West and East Saddle River roads, accessed via the borough hall parking lot off East Saddle River Road. It is largely hidden from view behind Waterford Gardens, Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church and Borough Hall.
The western parcel would be improved with a trail boardwalk, pollinator gardens, an apiary for beehives, birdhouses and information kiosks. The streambank would be dredged, restored and stabilized while the invasive plants would be replaced with native species.
The plans show the 9-acre portion of the park is designated wetlands in a flood hazard area.
The eastern parcel of the park already contains running and biking trails, a football field, a soccer field, two baseball fields, two tennis courts, an amphitheater, a restroom, a snack stand, a playground and a parking lot.
Council President Rosario Ruffino resigned in protest last July when the cost of the footbridge doubled from its original $700,000 budget. However, a majority of the council sided with Kurpis, who protested at the time that the footbridge has been "part of our master plan for almost 20 years."
Kurpis said the footbridge is scheduled for completion in May. No schedule for the footpaths was included in the Feb. 21 plans.

FAIR LAWN – The greatest Bergen County girls basketball dynasty rolls on.
Sparked by 15 courageous and clutch points from Cristina Parrella, Saddle River Day added to its record with a seventh consecutive Bergen County title by grinding out a gutty 42-37 win over Immaculate Heart Academy on Wednesday night at Fair Lawn High School.
“It means everything,” said Parrella, who scored seven straight points during a game-changing stretch bridging the third and fourth quarters. “This is what I came here for. We win championships. We work hard and it paid off.”
The big storyline coming in was whether IHA could finally beat the Rebels after three straight losses in the Bergen County final. The answer was… they got as close as they ever have.
Check out the photo gallery, then continue reading.
IHA led 30-28 after a 3-pointer by Julia Schutz midway through the third quarter but then went cold from the floor, failing to score for more than nine minutes.
That break gave Saddle River Day just enough time to surge ahead. Parrella, a transfer from Demarest, sank a 3-pointer, made a jumper from the elbow, then drove to the basket for two more to boost the Rebels to a 35-30 lead with 4:27 left.
“She had a monster game,” Saddle River Day coach Frank Clark said. “She really gutted through after getting banged up the other day. I am really proud of the whole team, everyone. Our team effort was great.”
IHA hurt Saddle River Day with its size inside, but the Rebels were able to clamp down in the final 12 minutes to prevail.
“We knew they were going to fight,” Parrella said. “But we knew we had to fight back and that’s exactly what we did.”
“IHA is a hell of a team,” Clark said. “Isabella Asencio is a great player. What a handful.”
The other main storyline coming in was Clark. He took over the Rebels midway through the county tournament, stepping in for Derek Amalbert. While the school has now won seven county titles, it was the first with Clark on the bench.
“If you had told me this three, four weeks ago, I wouldn’t have believed you,” Clark said. “I am not going to lie, going into this tournament there is a lot of pressure to keep it going, especially filling in as an interim position and having to do this.”
When asked if he would come back and coach the Rebels next season if asked, Clark said “absolutely, 100 percent.”
The bad news for the rest of Bergen County is that the Rebels only graduate one player, senior forward Jess Carter. Parrella is a junior and her running mate at guard, Julianna Almeida (11 points on Wednesday night), is also a junior. Throw in sweet-shooting sophomore guard Faith Williamson and its quite a core of talent for the Rebels.
Now focus shifts to the state tournament. IHA will be a contender in Non-Public A, but Shore Conference titan St. John Vianney may have one of its best teams ever – and that’s saying something. Non-Public B is stacked. Saddle River Day got the top seed, but may not be the favorite in a section loaded with Morris Catholic, Montclair Immaculate and Gil St. Bernard.
“There will be some great match-ups,” Clark said. “We just have to play our game and keep working on things. It’s not perfect, you know. We’re very happy, but you’re never satisfied. You have to keep that hunger going.”
There was even an imperfect moment for Saddle River Day in the final 10 seconds. The Rebels led 42-36 but were whistled for a technical foul for having six players on the court as the crowd looked on puzzled. IHA converted one free throw, but no more.
“That’s a team mistake right there,” Clark said. “That’s on me. We had five coming in and six were on the floor. I don’t know what happened.”
“It happens,” Parrella said with a laugh. “We just had to put it in the past and we did.”
Six players on a court doesn’t happen often. But the number everyone else will remember is seven.
