Something is wrong!: At age 39 you should not have osteoporosis. You could have thyroid or parathyroid disease. Medications for osteoporosis are not without risks. The cause of the osteoporosis will dictate the best medication. The exercise regimen most beneficial for osteoporosis is tai chai.

Osteoporosis: To prevent osteoporosis, it's weight bearing exercise, calcium and vitamin D3 supplementation, keep your weight down. Medications when necessary would include Fosamax, Actonel or Boniva (ibandronate). You'd need bone density tests every two to three years after you reach the menopause and treat more aggressively with medications dependent on the results.
