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 Warren, 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 Warren, 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:

PHILLIPSBURG, NJ – The days of Warren Lanes are officially coming to an end as construction progress and tarps are seen on Memorial Parkway and Elder Avenue in Phillipsburg.

A QuickChek is moving forward at the lot, and will build a gas station and convenience store. The developer, PBXDEV 2, LLC has plans approved to construct a new 5,670-square-foot QuickChek and gas station bays on the site, with electric charging stations. It will include 55 parking spaces, according to plans submitted to the town.
QuickChek is planned for the property known as Warren Lanes and received completeness and preliminary site plan approval in August 2022. Application number 22-011 was filed by PBXDEV 2, LLC. for a proposed food store with fuel sales. After over an hour of testimony from Attorneys, Engineers, Traffic Specialists, and Stuart Kimmel, representing QuickChek a year ago, led to the preliminary site plan was unanimously approved by the Phillipsburg land use board with limited waivers.

SYDNEY — Throughout South Korea's Women's World Cup opener against Colombia on Tuesday, players stayed loose behind the goal. Early in the 78th minute, one player broke away from the group.
New Jersey’s Casey Phair, at 16 years and 26 days, stepped onto the field and became the youngest player to do so in a World Cup — women's or men's.
"Going on, I was really, really nervous," said Phair, the Warren resident and Pingry School student who has an American father and a South Korean mother. "It was a scary moment, but then going on and running around, I think it just settled in."
The record previously was held by the late Ifeanyi Chiejine, who was 16 years and 34 days old when she played for Nigeria in the 1999 Women's World Cup.
In the 17 minutes she spent on the field in South Korea's 2-0 loss, Phair was near the ball at all times, competing with Colombian players for possession every chance she got.
"She deserved the chance to play," South Korea's head coach Collin Bell said. "She trained really well, just as well as anybody. I wanted to throw her on to give her that experience."
Phair's next chance to play comes Sunday, when the Taegeuk Ladies take on Morocco in Adelaide, Australia.
Born on June 29, 2007, in South Korea, Phair also is the first multi-ethnic player, female or male, to play for a South Korean senior national team.
"I'm really proud and really honored to be the first mixed player for the Korean Federation," Phair said. "I really appreciate the opportunity I was given today."
Phair is not the only young star in this year's Women's World Cup. Two other 16-year-old players are on squads for the tournament, although both were born in 2006. Giulia Dragoni started for Italy, wearing the No. 16, in its 1-0 win over Argentina on Monday, and Sheika Scott subbed in for Costa Rica in its 3-0 loss against Spain on Friday.
Four other Women's World Cup players are 17, and there's 39 teenagers among the 32 teams.
One is Colombia's 18-year-old Linda Caicedo, who scored her first World Cup goal in the 39th minute Tuesday in her tournament debut, earning her player of the match honors. She is the youngest goal-scorer at the tournament in Australia and New Zealand thus far.
The crowd was noticeably pro-Colombia, which Phair had to deal with as she created her piece of history.
"Warming up I think it was very loud," Phair said. "I really enjoyed that being my first time playing and I'm hoping to get used to it."

New Orleans-Inspired Restaurant Pays Homage to its Historic Past While Looking to Forward to the Future
WARREN, N.J., Aug. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Tap & Bitters announced today its name change from TAP Gastropub to Tap & Bitters. Located within the Somerset Hills Hotel, a property owned by 6R Capital Group and managed by Valor Hospitality Partners, Tap & Bitters is a New Orleans-inspired restaurant and bar concept featuring contemporary takes on Cajun cuisine, an extensive list of craft beers and cocktails, vibrant atmosphere evoking the Big Easy spirit and flexible dining and event spaces for a truly unique culinary journey.
The restaurant is helmed by Rafi Hasid, a restaurateur with over 20 years of impressive culinary and leadership experience. Tap & Bitters is his latest concept, following his success with various restaurants he has led in New York City over the past two decades, including the Mediterranean concept, Miriam, and the New Orleans-inspired 1803.
When deciding on the direction of Tap & Bitters, Hasid drew much of his inspiration from his travels to New Orleans, a city he has fallen in love with and has visited more than 50 times. He wanted to bring the incredible cuisine and New Orleans vibe to Warren. Tap & Bitters was heavily influenced by Hasid's beloved Cajun-Creole restaurant in Manhattan, 1803.
"I'm thrilled to bring New Orleans' one-of-a-kind spirit to Warren through Tap & Bitters' refreshed dishes, cocktails and atmosphere," said Rafi Hasid, restaurateur. "I have no doubt locals and visitors alike will enjoy the Southern-inspired curated menu and will feel as though they've been immersed in the city I love."
The new menu features items influenced by New Orleans' culture, dining and drinking scene. Guests will be transported to NOLA as they enjoy a variety of dishes, such as Cajun broiled oysters, Louisiana Cajun chicken wings, signature gumbo and more. The menu will be updated seasonally, with a focus on incorporating fresh ingredients and sourcing local produce and products wherever possible. The beverage menu will be expanded to further infuse New Orleans' famed cocktail culture, utilizing a variety of different bitters, fresh herbs and more. There are staples from the former restaurant that will remain on the new menu, including the expansive tap line with local craft beers and the local favorite "Tap" Burger.
Additions to the décor and interior of the restaurant include more communal seating areas, cozy benches and low set tables, fresh greenery and plants, antique brass jazz instruments hung throughout and changes to the music to ensure guests feel immersed from the moment they walk through the door. There will soon be a variety of unique events and programming taking place at the restaurant, as well as regular live music.
"We're excited to see Rafi's vision come to life," said Scott McArthur, general manager of the Somerset Hills Hotel. "The restaurant is a fantastic complement to the hotel and an incredible culinary experience for our guests visiting from near and far."
Tap & Bitters originally opened in 2003 and quickly established itself as the local watering hole and go-to eatery for Warren locals and visitors. Hasid and the team are looking forward to continuing this legacy of the restaurant while enhancing its atmosphere by adding unique elements infused with New Orleans flair.

Over the last 5 years, the Warren Township Committee has allotted more than $4,800,000 for road overlay. By utilizing these funds, the Township has paved nearly 22 miles of local roads since 2019:

2022 4.14 miles $935,584.26
2023 5.14 miles $1,093,900.00 (Est)
Deputy Mayor and Public Works Liaison George Lazo stated, “I have worked closely with Public Works Superintendent Doug Buro to ensure that our roads are properly maintained. I will continue to advocate for, as I have since 2012, the expansion of our overlay program. Our Township Committee is focused on providing increased funding and the proper equipment for the Public Works Department to ensure that our roads are safe.”
Ensuring that township roads are properly maintained is an important goal of the Township Committee. Funding has increased in recent years to expedite and increase the number of roads to be paved annually.
Added Committeeman Victor Sordillo, “While we celebrate the progress we’ve made over the last several years, we know that there is still much more to be done and many more roads to pave. We are already looking ahead to the 2024 budget process and are actively exploring grant opportunities to supplement local funding. This would allow us to increase the number of roads to be paved without negatively impacting the township budget.”
In addition to the above roads, the Township Committee has advocated for Somerset County to pave several County roads in the Township as well. It is anticipated that Somerset County will be paving Mountain Avenue from Stirling Road to Hillcrest Road and Mt. Bethel/Warrenville Road from Mountain Boulevard to Drift Way in the fall.
