: A really good book on female hormones and osteoporosis is What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause by John Lee. He discusses how progesterone re-mineralizes bone. In the studies that were done that purportedly showed that estrogen prevented osteo, they used progesterone to prevent uterine cancer from the estrogen.

: : I am 38 years old. I have walked hunched over for many years but lately it has gotten worse. I have other symptons that are, I think, related to Estrogen loss. Does estrogen have anything to do with this disease? What do I say to the doctor if I want a bone density test?
: : Thanks

Simply tell your doctor your concerns and tell him you would like a bone density test. I know in my case ( I am 53) I had my first test last year. It showed some loss and my doctor really wished I had had a test 10 years ago for a base line to see if this is something new and fast moving or if I have been like this for a long time. It is a really good idea.
