If there's one universal truth, it's that all of our bodies begin changing at some point. That's especially true for women who are over the age of 50. One day it seems like we're rolling out of bed with a pep in our step. The next, our emotions are out of control, our weight won't go down, and we constantly have hot flashes. If that sounds like you, don't worry â millions of other women worldwide are going through the same difficulties.
The fact of the matter is these symptoms are part of a natural process women go through. This change, called menopause, marks the end of a woman's ability to reproduce and menstruate. The average age for this to occur is 51, though it officially begins a year after a woman's final period. During this transition to menopause, estrogen and other hormones in a woman's body start to deplete When those hormones deplete, frequent and sometimes severe symptoms can manifest:
The symptoms of hormone deficiency can be scary for both women and their partners. That makes dealing with a hormone deficiency tricky because many symptoms are tied to nutrition, stress, lack of exercise, and toxins in your body.
However, if you're getting older and dealing with some of the symptoms listed above, have hope. A solution to your hormone problems may be closer than you think. Hormone replacement therapy for women may help correct imbalances caused by menopause. These effective, safe treatments help many women throughout the menopause process and may even help them reclaim their youth.
To live a healthy life, hormone stability is very important for women. That's where the beauty of HRT treatments for women begins to shine because it balances hormones that would otherwise be altered due to menopause.
HRT treatments for women represent a revolutionary step toward living life without the pitfalls of old age. However, at Juventee, we understand that no two women, and by proxy, patients, are the same. That's why our team of doctors and specialists provide personalized treatment options for women, combining holistic treatment, nutrition, fitness plans, and more to supplement our HRT treatments.
Is HRT the answer if you feel exhausted, overweight, and moody? That's the million-dollar question that we're asked almost every day. And to be honest, it's hard to say without a comprehensive exam by an HRT expert at Juventee. What we can say is that when a woman's hormones are better balanced during menopause, she has a much better chance of enjoying life without the crippling symptoms that other women feel.
At Juventee, helping women reclaim their vitality and love of life is our top priority. While some HRT clinics see patients as nothing more than a means to make money, our team is cut from a different cloth.
The key to balancing your hormones and improving your well-being is a process that we have refined over time. The Juventee HRT process consists of a comprehensive review of your health and hormonal status. Our team then customizes your plan and prescribes treatments, procedures, and supplements under the guidance of our local HRT experts.
At Juventee, we want to revitalize your health by promoting balance, energy, intimacy, and beauty. We start by assessing your baseline biomarkers and implementing a personalized plan to help you feel like your younger self. Our in-depth process covers many factors, almost like a web. Each component of that web works in conjunction with others to make up how you feel. If one area is out of sync, women can experience unwanted fluctuations in their weight, energy, emotions, libido, and more. Juventee is committed to evaluating our patient's overall health so that we may bring vitality and happiness to as many aspects of their lives as possible.
We've mentioned all the greatness that can come with an HRT regimen from Juventee, but what exactly are the benefits of HRT for women? Let's take a look.
We Work With
Unlike some HRT clinics, Juventee's HRT programs are carefully crafted and personalized for each patient. There are no cookie-cutter solutions at our office. Instead, we assess each individual's needs and customize treatments to help their bodies as they age. We replace hormones that are deficient and restore them to their physiological state using HRT pellets.
These hormone pellets are prescription hormones inserted under the skin through a simple in-office procedure. Each pellet is about as large as a big grain of rice. Once inserted, our HRT pellets get to work quickly. With this treatment, patients don't have to worry about applying greasy creams or swallowing pills. Instead, our pellets are metabolized by the body. That way, patients don't stress over taking too much or too little.
Remember, at Juventee, our goal isn't just to balance your hormones â it's to completely optimize your health and well-being. You won't ever have to worry about our doctors writing you a prescription and sending you on your way without any additional communication. Instead, we aim to be part of our patient's journey back to health and work with all of our HRT patients to do so.
Hormone imbalance causes a litany of issues. But with hormone replacement therapy, females can better process calcium, keep their cholesterol levels safe, and maintain a healthy vagina. By replenishing the body's estrogen levels, HRT may relieve symptoms of menopause and even optimize bone health.
But that's just the start. At Juventee, our patients report many benefits of taking HRT for women:
If you're ready to feel better and enjoy the vitality of your youth, Juventee is here to help you every step of the way. It all starts with an in-person evaluation, where our team will determine if HRT is right for you.
For many women, menopause is a difficult time filled with ups, downs, and hormonal hurdles to overcome. While menopausal issues are well-known by some, other women only know that menopause can affect their hormones. The reality is that going through menopause can mean more than moodiness and hot flashes.
At Juventee, we're big believers that a little knowledge can go a long way. With that in mind, if you're going through menopause or are approaching "that" age, consider these common issues. First, let's examine some alternative causes of menopause beyond age:
The most common reason for menopause is diminished, unbalanced hormones. However, menopause can also result from:
Now that we've examined some of the ways that menopause manifests, let's look at some common problems that females regularly endure:
If you're going through menopause and feel like life is a tiresome burden, you're not alone. Studies show that 15% of women go through depression to some degree during menopause. What many women don't learn is that depression may start much earlier, during perimenopause or even earlier.
Depression can be hard to diagnose, even without perimenopause and menopause as a factor. With that said, keep the following signs in mind. If you notice any, it might be time to speak with a physician:
If you notice any of the signs above, it's important that you understand that you're not weak or broken. You're going through a very normal emotional experience, which may be caused by hormone deficiency. However, with proper treatment from your doctor, depression doesn't have to rule your life.
You don't have to have hormonal imbalances to have mood swings. Indeed, everyone gets moody from time to time. For women going through menopause, however, mood swings can be extreme and happen often. Hormone imbalances and mood swings go together, resulting in unusual emotional changes and even issues like insomnia.
Estrogen production, a hormone that fluctuates during menopause, affects serotonin production, which regulates mood. When both hormones are deficient, mood swings can become quite prevalent.
Fortunately, HRT treatments in Bayonne, NJ, work wonders for women because they work to regulate hormones like estrogen. With HRT from Juventee, women don't have to settle for the negative consequences that drastic mood swings can cause.
Hot flashes: whether you're a man or a woman, you've probably heard of them. Hot flashes are very common issues associated with menopause and manifest as intense, sudden feelings of heat across the upper body. Some last a few seconds while others last many minutes, making them uncomfortable and inconvenient at all times. A few common symptoms of hot flashes include:
Usually, a lack of estrogen causes hot flashes in menopausal women. Low levels of estrogen negatively affect a woman's hypothalamus, or the part of the brain that regulates appetite and body temperature. Low estrogen levels cause the hypothalamus to assume incorrectly that the body is too hot. When it does, it dilates a woman's blood vessels to boost blood flow.
Fortunately, most women don't have to settle for the intense, unwanted feelings they endure with hot flashes. HRT pellet treatment from Juventee helps to stabilize hormones which may lessen the effects that hot flashes cause.
Staying healthy and fit is a challenge for anybody living in modern America. For women with hormonal imbalances, however, it's even harder. Weight gain is a concerning issue during menopause, but it can be manageable with a physician-led diet, exercise, and HRT treatments from Juventee.
HRT patients at Juventee benefit from health plans that keep hormones in check, making weight loss a real possibility. But which hormones need to be regulated to help avoid weight gain?
Millions of adults around the U.S. suffer from low sex drive, but that doesn't make it any more embarrassing to talk about. For many women going through pre-menopause and menopause, it's an unfortunate side effect of unbalanced hormones. Thankfully, HRT may help women maintain a healthy libido, even after 50. But what causes lowered sexual desire in women as they age?
The hormones responsible for low libido in females are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
Progesterone production decreases during perimenopause, resulting in lowered libido in some women. Lower progesterone production can also cause weight gain, exhaustion, and other symptoms common during menopause. Reduced estrogen levels during menopause may lead to vaginal dryness and even loss of muscle tension.
Testosterone is referred to as a male hormone, but it contributes to important health functionality in women as well. Female testosterone heightens sexual responses and intensifies orgasms. When the ovaries can't produce sufficient levels of testosterone, low sex drive can happen.
The inside of a woman's bones is broken down and rebuilt by bone cells in an ongoing process called remodeling. This process is crucial for maintaining bone strength and health.
However, due to the loss of estrogen during menopause, this important process becomes unbalanced. Less bone is formed, and more bone is broken down. This advanced state of bone loss can be worrying for women, especially if they had an early menopause. With time, women may develop osteoporosis and a greater chance of breaking bones as they age.
Fortunately, HRT for women can actually mimic estrogen and progesterone, which may help prevent bone loss and lower chances of osteoporosis in women. That's huge news for women around the U.S., many of whom are battling early bone loss due to a lack calcium, vitamin D, and other nutrients crucial to bone health.

A who’s who of Hudson County politicians turned out in force to support CarePoint Health’s bid to transition its ownership to a non-profit organization Tuesday at a public hearing of the state Health Planning Board.
The hearing, held at CarePoint Health’s Christ Hospital, concerned the hospital system’s pending certificate of need applications that would allow it to fully complete its transition to a non-profit if approved by the Department of Health.
CarePoint Health — which also operates the Bayonne Medical Center (BMC) and Hoboken University Medical Center (HUMC) — needs Department of Health (DOH) approval to sell 39.1% of Bayonne Medical Center to BMC Hospital LLC, a group made up mostly of surgical center owners.
The sale — which would give BMC Hospital LLC a 49% share of the hospital — was put on hold at the state DOH Planning Board meeting in April.
Speakers at the meeting who testified in favor of the CarePoint Health application included mayors Steve Fulop of Jersey City and Jimmy Davis of Bayonne, as well as Jersey City Councilman Richard Boggiano, Hoboken City Councilman Jim Doyle, Hudson County Board of Commissioners member Anthony Romano, Bayonne City Council President Gary La Pelusa and Second Ward Councilwoman Jacqueline Weimmer.
The CarePoint non-profit is headed by Achintya Moulick, the president and CEO of CarePoint Health.
“The outpouring of support for CarePoint’s transition to a non-profit at this meeting is proof of the strong feeling in the community that our three safety net hospitals must be given approval by the Department of Health to complete this process and continue serving the needs of Hudson County,” Moulick said.
Letters of support were also sent in from Assembly members Raj Mukheri and Angela V. McKnight, Jersey City Council President Joyce E. Watterman, Ward B Councilwoman Mira Prinz-Arey and Ward D Councilman Yousef J. Saleh.
“Christ Hospital has been a cornerstone in our community for decades in serving some of the most vulnerable residents here in Jersey City,” Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said. “CarePoint’s application to become a non-profit is critical for the long term growth of Christ Hospital and the other hospitals in the system, making them more viable, stronger, more competitive, more in line with the other hospitals in the region and a better overall option to serve the Jersey City community.”
Following the public hearing, the state Health Planning Board will vote on a recommendation regarding the CarePoint applications for certificates of need, with the final determination made by the commissioner of the Department of Health.
The bid to turn the health system over to a non-profit operated by the system’s president and CEO is “nothing more than a giant tax deduction for CarePoint’s wealthy owners,” Hudson Regional Hospital, the Secaucus hospital that is seeking to purchase Bayonne Medical Center, said last May in a statement.
Davis said non-profit would keep BMC a “Bayonne-centric, community based hospital,” and Bayonne residents would be invited to serve on the hospital board and have a voice in the hospital’s operations.
“To me, this is the most attractive aspect of this change in the form of ownership,” he said. “Our hospital should not be just another business in town — it should be the town’s business.”

The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday’s huge lottery drawing has increased to $1.35 billion, with a cash option valued at $724.6 million. If someone wins, it will be the 4th largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history and the second biggest Mega Millions prize.
The winning numbers were: 30, 43, 45, 46 and 61. The Mega Ball drawn was 14 with a Megaplier of 2x.
While no one across the country won Tuesday’s $1.1 billion Mega Millions jackpot, 16 second-prize tickets were sold, including one in New Jersey. It matched five numbers but not the Mega Ball, and was sold at 88 West Deli on Route 88 in Brick, the New Jersey Lottery said Wednesday.
In addition, there were nine third-prize tickets purchased in New Jersey. Each matched four numbers plus the Mega Ball.
A ticket sold at Clifton Discount Liquors on Ackerman Avenue in Clifton is worth $30,000 because the winner spent an extra $1 for the Mega Ball. The other eight are valued at $10,000 apiece.
No one has hit the Mega Millions since a $510 million prize was won in the Oct. 14 drawing — 25 drawings ago. Two ticket holders — one in Florida and one in California shared that prize.
A New Jersey player last hit the Mega Millions jackpot on July 24, 2020, when someone who bought a ticket in Bayonne won $123 million. The cash option was $100.1 million.
Winners in New Jersey have had the option to remain anonymous since January 2020, so the lucky ticket-holder’s identity has never been publicly revealed.
The odds of a $2 ticket matching all the winning numbers are 302,575,350 to 1. Players have a 1 in 12,607,306 chance of a ticket matching five numbers but not the Mega Ball and winning at least $1 million.
Mega Millions drawings are held on Tuesday and Friday in 45 states, along with Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Bayonne’s redevelopment renaissance of the past decade went hand in hand with financial incentives doled out to developers.
A city administration eager for new apartment buildings and businesses to revive its local economy negotiated generously with developers willing to take a chance on a city at a standstill, most often handing out payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreements, or PILOTs, that essentially provided tax breaks to developers.
Now nearly 10 years later, even as developers’ interest in Bayonne keeps the planning board busy year-round, councilmembers and Mayor Jimmy Davis’ administration aren’t ready to do away with those tax abatements, though they are perhaps ready to apply a bit more scrutiny.
In practice, that could mean that not every developer who wants a PILOT gets one, or that the longevity of tax abatement agreements is significantly shorter, councilmembers said. One newcomer to the council also said that Bayonne should increasingly use developer interest as a bargaining chip to reel in developer contributions to the community, or givebacks, in some fashion.
But after a nearly yearlong pause on PILOT agreement votes for major residential projects, which Davis initiated, taxpayers can expect them to return in some form.
“Given the building boom that we have experienced over the past eight years, there is no doubt that Bayonne can be a bit more discerning about development projects,” the mayor said. “We need to keep our eyes open to opportunities for growth, jobs and improved living spaces for our residents.
“The delicate balance between attracting investors and ensuring that our taxpayers are protected is something we must all keep in mind as Bayonne’s needs change.”
The PILOT program calls for 95% of the payments to go the municipality and 5% to the county, leaving the local school district with nothing. Under normal property taxation, a portion, usually in the 35-50% range, goes to the school district.
All councilmembers interviewed — newcomer Jacqueline Weimmer, Council President Gary La Pelusa and Councilman Loyad Booker — said that each development and affiliated tax abatements should now be scrutinized individually rather than the city taking a universal approach of approving or rejecting all of them.
Councilmembers Juan Perez and Neil Carroll III did not respond to interview requests.
La Pelusa and Carroll have leveled frequent scrutiny at PILOTs throughout their time on the council. La Pelusa estimated that he’s voted down more than 50 — though most of those votes were in the minority and unable to block council approval.
But even he does not think there should be a citywide shift away from incentives entirely.
La Pelusa said they could be good for projects that cultivate areas of Bayonne’s economy that he feels are still lacking, such as facilities that create scores of jobs or needed services like an assisted living facility.
New projects that resemble the bulk of those that cropped up in the past decade are likely less in need of tax abatements, and the council may look at shorter duration PILOT agreements if it does hand them out, the council president said.
“When the Davis administration took over in 2014, there really wasn’t much building going on at all, and the feeling was a lot different in town,” La Pelusa said. “The feeling from a lot of the developers was it wasn’t easy to deal with Bayonne. Now, no one can really say that.”
The city is currently wrapping up a study intended to review the development under the Davis administration and chart a path forward. It found a 92.6% occupancy rate in the 20 new buildings analyzed, La Pelusa previously said.
Despite Davis’ satisfaction with how far Bayonne has come, he knows that development is competitive and that neighboring municipalities are continuing to offer incentives. Tweaks to Bayonne’s process, therefore, might involve crafting more individualized deals for developers rather than attempting to do away with them, the mayor said.
“Within Bayonne, developer incentives might differ based on whether the development is commercial, residential, industrial, or mixed-use,” Davis said. “The incentives might also differ based upon the site of the proposed development or its size.”
The only PILOT agreement on the city council’s agenda for this month is for a new 70,000-square-foot industrial building at 7 Hook Rd.
The council will likely consider tax abatement agreements for the next phases of the Silk Lofts and Woodmont developments in coming months as well. Woodmont phase two plans include 85 new apartment units between West 52nd and West 53rd streets to supplement the existing Liberty Bay Club property.
Weimmer, who joined the city council last summer, said she was initially skeptical of whether PILOT agreements were still needed, but after conversations with colleagues has come to believe that developers often need them to make projects financially viable.
Still, she thinks that developers can probably offer the city more in return in the way of community givebacks and is exploring ways for to facilitate that.
“I’m looking for assistance to infrastructure costs, I’m looking for the betterment of the community,” Weimmer said.
She said she is skeptical of PILOT agreements that last up to 25 or 30 years.
Booker, also in his first year on the council, said he is also still learning, but he believes that considering incentives individually is probably the best approach for the city.
“There’s no broad brush for incentives,” he said. “That’s my take on it.”

The state Health Planning Board Thursday morning unanimously approved CarePoint Health System’s application to convert its three Hudson County for-profit hospitals to nonprofit status.
The approvals make official the transfer of ownership of Christ Hospital in Jersey City, Bayonne Medical Center and Hoboken University Medical Center from majority owner Vivek Garipalli to the nonprofit organization CarePoint Health System that was announced in October 2021.
Although CarePoint “has completed the transfer of ownership without department approval, the department asserts that not approving the application and requiring the operator to revert back to its previous ownership structure may result in further undue financial hardship ... for CarePoint Health System as a whole,” the state board said in its recommendation for approval.
The approvals, which were expected, come with long list of conditions, including some related to financial transparency and others related to safeguards against overcharging in-network patients.
Previously the hospital chain announced it was selling 39.1% of the Bayonne Medical Center to BMC Hospital LLC, which already owns 9.9%. It could not be determined Thursday if that deal will be completed.
Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis spoke in support of the Bayonne Medical Center, saying “In 2019 I became aware of a situation with Bayonne hospital where there was a deal trying to be cut behind everyone’s back, where two of the CarePoint hospitals were going to be sold and Bayonne (Medical Center) was going to be closed. This was October of 2019.”
Davis went to say that anyone who wanted to close Bayonne Medical Center would “have to go through me.”
In October 2019, CarePoint Health and RWJBarnabas Health announced an agreement to transfer ownership of HUMC and Christ Hospital to RWJBarnabas Health. CarePoint also announced it was in the process of finding a “strategic partner” for BMC. The deal between RWJBarnabas Health and CarePoint Health was never completed.
Achintya Moulick, the CEO of CarePoint Health System, was asked about the real estate issues related to the hospital chain. At the time of the application, 67.5% of the Christ Hospital land was owned by CarePoint, 25% by Alaris Health founder Avery Eisenreich and 7.5% by Jeffrey Mandler, one of the previous owners of the hospital chain, Moulick said.
CarePoint Health leases the land at HUMC from Eisenreich and the land at BMC from Hudson Regional Hospital owner Jan Moshe, Moulick said.
“Once we are a nonprofit my goal is to raise bonds in the future and buy back all the real estate in the next one and half or two years,” said Moulick, who later added that “health care should not be determined by property ownership and profiteering and lawsuits.”
