The risk of osteoporotic fracture is related to peak bone mass achieved at skeletal maturity and subsequent bone loss. Although premature menopause is a risk factor for osteoporosis, the effect of exposure to endogenous estrogen during a woman's reproductive years is poorly characterized. We analyzed the relationship between reproductive factors and… CONTINUE READING
