Menopause & Osteoporosis

Menopause is a natural biological process in which when menstrual periods stop permanently. There are three phases to the transition, which include perimenopause (when a woman's body begins the transition); menopause (when you have experienced 12 consecutive months without a menstrual period); and postmenopause (generally 24 to 36 months after your last period, when your symptoms begin to subside). It typically occurs between 49 and 52 years of age. Medical professionals often define menopause as having occurred when a woman has not had any vaginal bleeding for a year. It may also be defined by a decrease in hormone production by the ovaries.

Osteoporosis resulted in weakening of bones and increases the risk of sudden or unexpected fractures. In Osteoporosis there are the loss of bone mass & strength resulting pours bones. The exact cause of Osteoporosis is unknown. It is common in woman at post menopause state and very common in women as compared to men.
