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 Woodcliff 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 Woodcliff 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:

A teacher in Bergen County has filed a lawsuit against the school district where he teaches history, claiming he was suspended after parents and students complained about his lessons on the rise and fall of Adolf Hitler that included an assignment to make a propaganda-style poster.
Robert Welsh, 53, of Park Ridge, states in court papers the Woodcliff Lake School District has accused him of violating New Jersey’s laws against harassment, intimidation and bullying for his teachings his on World War II, Hitler and the history of Nazis and swastikas.
“The subject class included instruction on the rise of Adolph Hitler and Nazism, and a lesson on totalitarian governments in general, including how such movements gain power,” states the suit, filed Sept. 21 in Superior Court of Bergen County.
Schools Superintendent Lauren Barbelet declined to comment on the lawsuit. Business Administrator Matthew L. Lynaugh did not immediately respond on Wednesday to calls and emails seeking comment on the suit.
The district did not respond to a message seeking to speak with the board of education’s attorney.
Welsh, who has taught in the district for more than 22 years, teaches seventh-grade social studies at Woodcliff Middle School.
The class includes lessons on the Nazis’ use of swastikas as a totalitarian symbol, the history of the symbol – including how it was once a positive Hindu emblem – and how the Nazis appropriated the swastika for evil purposes, the suit states.
The lawsuit states Welsh had been teaching the class for 10 years, and that the lesson plan included a poster project in which students were told to draw a political cartoon or propaganda-type poster from the perspective of a citizen or government official.
Some of the students’ posters included drawings of swastikas, but only after Welsh “explicitly instructed the students never to draw the swastika outside of the classroom (as it’s) considered a hate symbol,” the suit states.
Welsh also showed students a video of Hitler giving a public speech “to demonstrate how angry of a speaker Hitler was,” the suit states.
The classes were held on February 1 and 2, the lawsuit states. On Feb. 3, Welsh said he was summoned to a meeting with the superintendent, who told him “Jewish people” in town were upset about the lesson and she ordered him “to fix this.”
Welsh, with the help of a union representative, wrote a letter to parents explaining why he felt the history lesson on Hitler was necessary. “I certainly apologize for any misconceptions or misperceptions that this lesson may have caused,” the letter said, according to the suit.
The letter was given to administrators but never mailed to parents because the superintendent felt the note “wasn’t good enough,” the suit states.
Welsh was suspended with pay on Feb. 7 and remains on suspension without a return date, the suit states.
After his suspension, the district launched a harassment, intimidation and bullying investigation against Welsh and found in March he violated state laws against bullying, the suit states.
“The HIB investigators (interviewed) students from plaintiff’s class, without the plaintiff having access to students’ interviews, or even their identities,” the suit states. The interviews were “unrecorded, hearsay” complaints from 18 anonymous students, according to the lawsuit.
Welsh appealed his suspension, but it was upheld after an April 14 hearing in which he and his lawyer were allowed to make brief statements to the board, but not allowed to question any of the witnesses, the suit states.
The lawsuit claims Welsh still does not know when or if he can return to work and states the suspension ruined his reputation in the community.
“The board well knows that the plaintiff has now been falsely branded in the community as some sort of pro-Hitler teacher, which it knows will effectively end his teaching career,” the suit states.
“The fact that his indefinite suspension is currently with pay is of little consolation to the plaintiff, where his reputation as a teacher has been destroyed,” the suit states.
The lawsuit accuses administrators and the board of education of deliberately placing Welsh in a false light, “repeatedly mischaracterizing the HIB findings.”
The suit states district administrators began seeing Welsh in an unfavorable light in 2021 when he tried to establish a Christian club for students and again that fall when he expressed his displeasure with state-enacted curriculum requirements, including sex education and LGBTQ issues.
The lawsuit claims Woodcliff Lake school administrators and members of the board of education engaged in religious discrimination, violated Welsh’s first-amendment rights and his rights under New Jersey’s anti-discrimination laws.
Welsh is also challenging state HIB laws as “too vague (and) constitutionally over-broad,” therefore allegedly violating his civil rights.

PATERSON — Marilyn Clark of Woodcliff Lake decided she wanted to do something to help Paterson residents after reading a story in The Record in 2017 about Habitat For Humanity’s housing program in the city.
So, Clark made donations to Habitat that allowed four low-income families to buy new homes in Paterson. But she didn’t stop there. Next Clark wanted to make a contribution to programs for Paterson’s youth.
That charitable desire culminated in the 87-year-old woman’s recent $1 million donation for the expansion of the Great Falls Youth Center.
“There’s such a need for this in Paterson,” Clark said on Thursday, prior to a groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion. “Too many times, if they don’t have the right support system, they can get in trouble. The incarceration rates are terrible.”
Clark’s most recent generosity almost never happened. She left a voice message at the nonprofit group that runs the youth center, the Paterson-based New Jersey Community Development Corporation. But that message got lost in the shuffle.
Determined to make her contribution, Clark turned to her pastor, the Rev. Arturo Lewis of Emmanuel Church in Ridgewood. Lewis grew up in Paterson and he reached out to Vaughn McKoy, the city’s former business administrator, who put him in touch with NJCDC’s executive director, Bob Guarasci.
Infrastructure investment:This Paterson bridge repair should improve traffic near the Great Falls, officials say
As a result, Clark went on a tour of Paterson with Guarasci, which resulted in her donation to the youth center.
“We’d still be looking for additional funds,” Guarasci said when asked where the project would be without Clark’s help.
NJCDC opened the youth center on Front Street, near the Great Falls, about five years ago, remodeling a former veterans hall. Originally, about 100 teens would use the center, but soon the demand for the youth center programs outgrew its building.
“The kids kept coming, and that’s a good thing,” said Guarasci.
The total price tag for the project is $3 million, according to NJCDC. It will include the expansion of the existing building with a new multi-purpose room and construction of a new building being called "College Central" to help students get into and succeed while in college, and a podcast studio.
The nonprofit group projects that the new facilities will be open by next spring.
The rest of the money for the project is coming from a $1.5 million grant from the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs and a $500,000 community development block grant, federal funding funneled through the city of Paterson.
Guarasci said Clark’s donation is the single largest gift his agency ever received from one person.
Unlike some people up in their years, Clark didn’t hesitate to say she was 87 when a reporter asked her age.
“I’m so proud of it,” she said. “How fortunate I am to be 87 years old and in good health and active in my community and my church.”
On Thursday, the folks at NJCDC in Paterson also felt pretty fortunate that Clark remains active in the community.
