Dr. Peter Liehr answered
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Post BSO: While the ovaries are the main source of Estrogen production other tissues in the body, such as fat which makes Estrone, make versions of Estrogen as well. As you are 51, you are at the natural age for menopause and the cessation of E production. Exercise (weights) and calcium supplementation will be a good complement to a healthy diet & lifestyle to stave off osteoporosis.
