Question Question about calcium and estrogen

I am postmenopausal and very concerned about strong bones. Just like everyone else. I have heard that when your estrogen diminishes your bones do not absorb the calcium as well.

Even if you take high amounts of calcium do your bones absorb? This is probably a weird question. I have been a bit foggy lately with my hypothyroidism.

I don't think I have too much estrogen left. Was on the Menostar patch but since I have thyroid problems the estrogen interferes with the thyroid from what I have read. I quit using that.

If anyone knows I would appreciate some information.
Thank you,
Betty
