World Menopause Day 2021“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”.5
