Bone health and the menopause

In women, the decline of general bone health speeds up once their regular menstrual periods stop with the menopause, due to the decline in the hormone oestrogen. Osteoporosis is the process that describes the thinning of the bones, causing them to become less dense and strong. As a result, the bones are more fragile and liable to break.
