In brief: Yes

Woman in their late 40's and on need to make sure they have adequate calcium in their diets.
This is even more so when you have a broken bone. Another important issue would be how you broke your bone? If a very minor incident caused the break then you may have weak bones already.

In brief: Probably not.

At the age of 43, assuming that you still have regular cycles, your levels of estrogen are likely still normal.
Even if your cycles are irregular (which is not uncommon in your 40's) there is no reason why a person like yourself, if in good health, should not heal appropriately from a simple bone fracture. It is recommended that you take supplemental calcium and vitamin d anyway!
