There is a decrease in cancellous bone mass and strength during lactation but these are partially or completely reconstituted in the postlactational period. The purpose of this study was to determine changes in cancellous bone structure and formation after lactation in established breeder rats. For this, rats were taken at the end of the second pregnancy (Preg-2) and second lactation (Lac-2) and 2, 4, and 6 weeks after weaning. Nulliparous (NP) groups were included for comparisons.
