Patient : I've been taking depo provera as birth control for a little over two years now. i semi-regularly take vitamin d one per day and calcium twice per day (as directed by doctor).
i'm switching off of depo in about a month or so most likely.
i recently found out (today) that my grandmother (who i don't know) suffers from severe osteoporosis.
i'm eighteen years old, nineteen next week.
what can i do to better prevent osteoporosis in myself?
i wouldn't have been on depo if i knew about my grandmother.
what can i do?
