Anyone Taking HRT For Their Osteoporosis?
A MyOsteoTeam Member asked a question 💭

I was on Forteo for 15 months and my spine went from -2.9 to -3.0. My Endocronoglist and I agreed that I was going in the wrong direction.

I had a hysterectomy when I was 24, both ovaries removed and was on HRT for 17 years. Because there is breast cancer on both sides of my family I decided to go off. I am 59 nad have no regrets about going off.
I have been on prolia since 2014 and no side effects - sore back for a few days after but otherwise I feel really good, most of the time.
My bone scan when I started prolia was -3.6 and I am now -3.1

I take low dose estrogen and no Osteo meds as i hate the side effects. So i exercise and eat healthy and take lots of vitamins. So far my scores are staying at -3.0 and im ok with that as im still active and dont have any pain.

After two years of HRT (estradiol patch and natural progesterone) I go for a bone density scan next week. I'll let you guys know if it helped. I've also been reading about heart disease and HRT but the research on natural hormones are limited but positive.\
