6-12 months: Pregnancy associated osteoporosis is usually transient and resolves spontaneously. There's no standard treatment. Symptoms begin in the last trimester of pregnancy. It may persist six months to a year after pregnancy. After you have delivered you may take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories for it. Make sure you are getting adequate nutrition during and after pregnancy.

Calcium: This osteoporosis is short term and not usually treated with potent medications, unless very severe. The diagnosis warrents a bone density exam and consultation with someone versed in osteoporosis. Bone density exams have less radiation than a dental xray and you can be shielded as well.
