  1. Fulltext. Early menopause, number of reproductive years, and bone mineral density in postmenopausal women.

    Article - En anglais



    Previous studies have reported positive associations of age at menopause with bone density and inverse associations of age at menarche with bone density.

    This study examined the relationships of early age at menopause and number of reproductive years (defined as age at menopause minus age at menarche) with bone density in postmenopausal women.


    The subjects were 555 women aged 60 to 89 years who had had either natural menopause (n=391) or hysterectomy with bilateral oophorectomy (n=164).

    Bone density was measured at the ultradistal wrist, midshaft radius, lumbar spine, and hip.
