In brief: No
But it will enhance bone remodeling, and if on bisphosphonate agent, it will potentiate it's effect as shown in a recent study.
Concomitant vitamin d is recommended. Talk with your doctor.

Usually you want to develop a combination of calcium and vitamin d to help prevent osteopososis.
You first need a baseline to see if you are at risk.Then your gyn or endocrinologist can help you determine what is best for you. Good thinking ! good luck.
