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 Silver Lake, 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 Silver Lake, 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:

HARDING — Dickson's Mill Road gently winds a narrow, mile-long path through green fields and historic estate properties that comes to an end near the spill over the Silver Lake dam.
Along the way, the historic two-lane road, which carried travelers before the American Revolution, crosses over the scenic Silver Brook and passes by a 40-acre preserve purchased with state Green Acres funds.
While most in the wealthy southern Morris County township agree the tiny bridge over Silver Brook should be replaced, they don't support the federal, state and county guidelines that have led to a design proposal to widen the roadway by almost half.
The proposed 26-foot-wide bridge would compromise the historic and idyllic character of the setting and encourage speeding on a bridge where "there is no record of any traffic accidents ever taking place," said Councilman and former Mayor Nicolas Platt.
"How do you take a road with a safety record like that and want to change it?" Platt asked. "It doesn't make sense."
The current bridge widens the 18-foot-wide road to 20 feet. Signs warn approaching drivers of a narrow bridge with a 4-ton limit, barely wide enough to accommodate two passing cars.
"Besides taking on the appearance of a non-historic crossway, a wider bridge would straighten out a curve that would lead to higher speeds that have never been an issue," said Platt, who also currently serves as one of two New Jersey "shared services czars" appointed by Gov. Phil Murphy.
Morris County engineer Christopher Vitz is aware of the issue and said that due to the traffic volume on the roadway, and the current state and federal regulations, it requires a minimum-width bridge of 26 feet.
"It's just a safety issue," he said. "At 20 feet, it's a 10-foot-wide lane in each direction. That's quite narrow for vehicles to pass. Typically, you'd want a 12- or 13-foot-wide lane. With 26 feet, that allows two vehicles to pass while there is a pedestrian on the bridge."
Platt said he sees the larger bridge as a costly government "boondoggle," at an estimated price of $1.5 million, that is neither needed, nor desired, by residents.
"It's not just a bridge," Platt said. "This is about every rural road in New Jersey that has been protecting itself for 200 years, and suddenly the state takes a one-size-fits-all approach. That makes no sense. I think there's only 12 people who live on this road."
Platt was the lone council member to vote against a July 15 resolution that "supports the replacement or repair" of the bridge, and said he "desires the current width of the bridge to be maintained."
He objected to the resolution because it does not declare formal opposition to the width of the proposed bridge, and also requests the county, which is responsible for bridge replacement, to include the project in its 2020 budget cycle.
"The resolution to me reads as though they want to see if they can get a reprieve, but otherwise, let's move forward," Platt said. "It gives the county and the state less urgency to resolve this. I want to stonewall until we get the width we want."
Platt is calling for state officials to grant an exception to rebuild to the current width and still use about $1 million in state funds even though the plan would not meet American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials standards.
He cited previous exceptions to bridge projects "that did not meet NJDOT guidance values for width" in a letter to Transportation Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scacetti.
"I cannot fathom why a new bridge would need to be 45 percent wider than the roadway leading to it," Platt wrote. "The width between the trees on either side of the roadway is not even 26 feet."
Department of Transportation spokesman Steve Schapiro said the department "is aware of the concerns raised by elected officials, the town and county, and is working to set up a meeting to discuss them."
Assemblyman John McKeon, who represents Harding and New Jersey's 27th District, supports the push to narrow the replacement bridge.
"It's something overwhelmingly that folks in Harding care about, so I'm going to bat with them in every manner I can with the Department of Transportation, and the governor, if need be," McKeon said.
"I am committed this bridge will never be 26 feet," Platt vowed. "I will hold a sit-in if need be."

EDISON – Last July, neighbors on opposite ends of the township unified with rallies to just say “no” to two proposed development projects, which they called “inappropriate,” “destructive” and even “criminal” if built in their neighborhoods.
Almost a year later, their rallying cries have essentially been heard.
The township is in the process of purchasing the vacant lot at 41 Glendale Ave. once proposed to become a 176,630-square-foot warehouse. The Township Council approved a $12.98 million bond ordinance providing for the acquisition of the property at a meeting on March 23.
And on March 18, Mark Roshanski, president of Markim Developers LLC, in an email to the township, said they would “either withdraw its pending application before the Zoning Board or amend its application to eliminate the proposed  townhouses [on the 2-acre site of a former Charlie Brown’s restaurant on Plainfield Road].
“Markim Developers will propose a new plan for the development of the site, which will be consistent with the vision of the mayor [Sam Joshi] and local residents.”
Joshi shared the email on social media on March 21.
“There will be no townhomes built on the Charlie Brown’s site,” he said. “I made it clear I was against this project and this is a step in the right direction towards stopping overdevelopment, ensuring responsible managed growth and having a master plan that supports Edison’s vision for now and the future.”
Residents have said they believed several single-family homes on the site would be more appropriate and would fit the scale and density of the neighborhood.
For Ron and Emmalyn Loeffler, the news of “no warehouse” in the “historic and residential” Silver Lake neighborhood has them literally jumping for joy.
Joshi had announced the news of no warehouse at his State of the Township address in February. He said the Loefflers, who attended the address, could get a good night’s sleep.
A few days after the address, Ron Loeffler, in a phone call, said he and his neighbors were elated by the mayor’s announcement and looked forward to hearing plans for the site.
Residents have long expressed their support for the preservation of the 10 acres as open space.
Emmalyn Loeffler thanked Joshi, his administration, the Township Council and all the residents who came together to stop the development of the warehouse at a council meeting in February.
“We are super excited to learn the vision of the property, a warehouse should never be put in place of a residential neighborhood,” she said. “I’m excited at the prospect of a new Master Plan that’s going to address all the old zoning and all those forgotten about properties so no residential neighborhood ever has to go through this in Edison again.”
Emmalyn Loeffler shared she believed it was fate for her family to become involved in the fight for their neighborhood because of a similar fight more than 30 years ago.
She said Rich Egan, who lived in the home they live in now, was instrumental in preserving the woods across the street from their home in the 1980s and ensured the purchase of one of Edison’s first New Jersey Green Acres funded pieces of open space properties.
“At the time there was a proposed development of a street and six homes in the woods,” she said. “Rich was really proud of the accomplishment and made it a point to share it with us during the journey of purchasing our home. And we always say when people come to see our house, our across the street neighbors are the best neighbors on the street. Being able to see the woods across the street is what sold us on the home to purchase.”
In efforts to prevent future proposed developments similar to the warehouse and townhomes, a resident has suggested appointing a public advocate for the planning and zoning boards.
The township attorney is reviewing the proposal.

This week’s On The Road leads with a review of the 2022 Kia Stinger GT2 AWD V6 and also covers the Kia Niro and the Mercedes GLE 53.
Kia has stepped up into the world of luxury and sportiness quite nicely in recent years. This South Korean importer is no longer just an economical alternative to the Hondas and Toyotas of the world.
The immensely popular Kia Telluride SUV is a fine example of one of its quality offerings. The 2022 Kia Stinger GT2 AWD V6 can be added to this list as well.
This Stinger is a classy, yet sporty four door sedan offered up in the neighborhood of the same price point as a 3 series BMW.
The base price of the model I tested is $53,490. When you add in the options and delivery charge, it stickers at $55,655.
Powered by a 3.3 liter turbo charged V6 this Stinger puts out an impressive 368 horsepower.
Moreover, inside and out it is luxuriously appointed.
The GT2 package adds upgraded sound system, heated seats, power tilt steering wheel, sport gauges, a 7 inch touchscreen and more.
Overall, I found the Stinger loads of fun to drive. It handles reasonably well and is comfortable. The instrumentation is easy enough to figure out and is generally very intuitive.
Is this vehicle as good as the BMW 3 series or Mercedes C Class?
Not just yet. But let’s give the folks at Kia some time to work on it.
The Stinger gets 20 miles per gallon overall on its EPA fuel ratings – 17 in city driving and 24 on the highway.
Moreover, it gets an impressive 5 star government crash test rating – the highest score possible.
2022 Kia Niro EX Premium
The hybrid Niro sits on the other end of the spectrum from the Stinger. This economical compact crossover SUV is smaller and less powerful but sports a very impressive EPA fuel consumption rating of 49 mpg overall.
The Niro will get you 51 mpg in city driving and 46 mpg on the highway.
The Kia Niro EX Premium model I tested is powered by a rather small 1.6 liter, four cylinder gas engine that is paired with a 1.56 kilowatt lithium battery and a six speed dual clutch transmission.
Needless to say, at 139 horsepower you won’t win any Indy 500 races with this compact crossover. But, that’s not what this vehicle is all about.
Overall, this is a utilitarian, sort of knock around compact SUV that checks most of all the right boxes and is economical to own.
The model I drove has a base price of $31,990. The only added options were the red paint for $295 and carpeted floor mats for $155. The bottom line sticker price with delivery charges comes in at $33,615.
The Niro handles reasonably well and has an adequate amount of room for cargo.
It is reasonably comfortable to drive and offers good sight lines while driving.
It scored four stars out of five on the government’s crash test rating.
2022 Mercedes AMG GLE 53
There was a time when in order to get the AMG badge on a Mercedes, the vehicle’s engine had to be hand made in a smaller boutique style production site.
Such, is no longer the case.
While it still produces the handmade AMG engines on some of its models, Mercedes now puts out AMG enhanced models, like this GLE 53. These engines are not handmade, but rather infused with AMG like power and qualities.
The 3.0 liter, turbo charged GLE 53 I tested for a week puts on an impressive 429 horsepower.
When you put the drive mode selector in the sport plus mode on this GLE 53, it growls quite nicely and offers pure excitement on the road.
I found the GLE 53 to be very well built, loaded with quality features inside and out.
It drives more like sports car than an SUV and offers up plenty of cargo room for those long trips to the shore with the family.
Of course, none of this comes cheap.
The base price for the GLE 53 is $73,550. However, my tester was loaded with options and carried a bottom line sticker price of $101,080.
Some of the pricier options included in my test vehicle included: $4,500 for AMG Black exclusive Nappa leather; $4,450 for 22-inch AMG matte black wheels; $1,950 for a driver assist package; $1,600 for heated and ventilated seats and more.
The EPA fuel consumption rating for the GLE 53 comes in at 19 miles per gallon overall – 22 in highway driving and 18 in the city.
The government’s crash test safety test was not fully completed on this SUV. But it did get five stars for the frontal crash test.
Of course you can get less expensive non AMG versions of the solid GLE, but if you are looking for a powerful and quite luxurious version, this certainly checks all those boxes and is worth considering if you can afford the hefty price tag.

LAKE COMO/BELMAR, NJ — It appears Silver Lake’s swan family has made its move to Lake Como.
Jo Ann Kerwin of Belmar was out for a walk on Sunday, May 31 when she saw them enjoying Lake Como near B Street and North Boulevard. And then later in the day, Leonore Geisler of Lake Como spotted them again swimming in the picturesque lake that straddles Lake Como and Spring Lake.
Below is a video by Kerwin of the swans this morning on Lake Como:

The two adult swans and their cygnets captured the public’s attention last week before they disappeared after being last seen on the Belmar boardwalk heading south on May 28.
To follow up on Belmar Environmental Chair’s Ed Lippincott’s belief they may have been chased away from Silver Lake by a predator, TAPinto Belmar/Lake Como reader Lilly Ladman of Belmar sent a photo showing a bald eagle recently hovering over the center island where the swans had nested.
“The swans had seven babies, now they are down to six. Perhaps they left because of this guy?” she asked.
Below is Ladman’s video of the bald eagle flying above the island.

POINT PLEASANT BEACH - As the water level dropped in Little Silver Lake, the result of a planned dredge project, residents became alarmed at several big fish trapped in pools of shallow water
The fish would have faced an almost certain death if it weren't for the efforts of a few lake residents, who documented their mission in the video at the top of this story.
But just how the fish got there is now the talk of this seaside town. Many people believe the fish were put there years ago by the late Joseph Spader.
It was not a well-kept secret that Spader, who passed away in 2014 at age 84, liked to stock Little Silver Lake, a land-locked lake, with striped bass he caught from saltwater.
"He would catch them at the beach or Point Pleasant Canal and then bring them back and keep them in a holding pen on the lake," said his grandson Tyler Spader, 31, who resides at his grandfather's old home on Trenton Avenue.
Joseph Spader would attach a line and floating bobber to their tails before releasing them into the lake proper so that later he could check on their survival, his grandson said. Joseph Spader would then paddle out in a canoe and remove the bobber.
Tyler Spader, along with neighbors Dave Miles and Chris Schlegel, rescued five striped bass they believe were fish stocked by his grandad. He said they transported the fish to Lake Louise and released them alive.
The fish measured between 31 and 39 inches. The biggest weighed approximately 30 pounds.
The borough is in the process of removing silt from the lake in a flood mitigation project.
Borough Engineer Ray Savacool said the lake was electrically shocked in a prior year, which revealed no fish. As a result, they did not have to shock the lake again before the dredging started this winter.
An electric shock stuns fish so they can be relocated, said Savacool.
Another explanation for the striped bass is that they traveled through the underground pipes that connect Lake Louise to Little Silver Lake, and which also brings in the saltwater.
Lake Louise connects to the Manasquan River, which in turns empties directly into the Atlantic Ocean.
That's not the story, however, many prefer to tell.
"I'd like to think they were Joe Spader's fish and that his legend lives on," said Point Pleasant Beach Mayor Stephen Reid.

GIBBSBORO - A realty company is seeking approval for a project that would bring the largest influx of homeowners in decades to this tiny borough.
The borough's land use board will hear an application Wednesday night for a final subdivision approval that would allow a total of 163 town homes to be built at three different locations in a redevelopment zone.
It is the largest proposal of owner-occupied homes in nearly 50 years for Gibbsboro, whose population of 2,247 reflects a decline since the 2010 Census.
“We’ve had some new apartments, but not since the the 1960s has Gibbsboro seen this large of a development of homes, and these town homes would be our first," Mayor Ed Campbell said.
The homes would be built inside a locally designated redevelopment area, as is a new 72-unit apartment complex approved last year. But none is on one of the polluted Superfund sites connected with a former paint manufacturing factory along Silver Lake, the mayor said.
“The Superfund sites have hurt development in the town in the past but this (town homes) would be a huge boost to the tax base," said Campbell, who also sits on the land use board.
The proposal by Brandywine Operating Partnership calls for three phases:
While the lag in residential development has prevented an increase in population, Campbell attributes the borough's population decline to the shrinking size of the American family as families move in and out of town.
Brandywine Realty Trust of Philadelphia is the general partner of Brandywine Operating Partnership LP. It redevelops, owns and leases office and industrial properties in South Jersey; the Philadelphia region; Washington, D.C.; Richmond, Virginia; Texas; and California.
Brandywine Realty Trust has been the master Camden developer of Knights Crossing, 1.4 million square feet of commercial space in five buildings that includes the new Subaru of America headquarters.
Neither real estate developer could be reached for comment.
The applicant also seeks several variances that include reducing the Phase I lot size from 2 acres to 1.84 acres, and reducing the landscape buffer around that development from 15 feet to 3 feet; some places would have no landscape buffer.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency continues to oversee cleanup at three Superfund sites in Gibbsboro in a project that dates decades: the Lucas Paint Works/Sherwin-Williams/Hilliard's Creek site that includes contaminated Kirkwood Lake and portions of neighboring Voorhees; the 13-acre United States Avenue site where paint was burned for disposal; and the Route 561 Dump Site.
The land use board chairman decided to withdraw from hearing the town home application because she lives within 200 feet of the proposed development.
If you go
The land use board hearing on the town home proposal will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Gibbsboro Borough Hall, 49 Kirkwood Road.
