On page two in Bone Health: What Do We Mean By “Bone Health”? the IMS note:

International Menopause Society
“In healthy bone, up to the menopause, the production of new bone happens more than the removal of old bone, but the opposite happens after menopause. After your last menstrual period, your ovaries stop the production of the hormone estrogen. This leads to increased removal of bone which results in decreased bone strength. Age-related changes also lead to increased removal of bone”.8
