Osteoporosis happens when the density of bones decreases and the body stops producing bones as much as it did before. It can affect both males and females but is most likely to occur among women after menopause due to sudden decrease in estrogen, the hormone that normally protects the body against osteoporosis.
As the bones become weaker, the risk of a fracture during a fall or even a minor knock is higher.
