Osteoporosis Risk Assessment

Take the Assessment

Osteoporosis is a long-term (chronic) disease that slowly weakens bones until they break easily. It is caused by a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors. In some cases it may also be caused by medical conditions or medicines. Millions of Americans older than 50 have osteoporosis. Millions more have low bone mass, which puts them at risk for the disease. Osteoporosis mainly affects women. One in 2 U.S. women and 1 in 4 U.S. men older than 50 will have a broken bone at some point in their life because of osteoporosis. If you are a woman, use this tool to find out your risk of getting this disease.

Ovulation Date Calculator

A woman is fertile (able to become pregnant) only during a certain part of her monthly cycle—just before and during ovulation. By learning when you ovulate, you can predict when you’re likely to be fertile. This calculator provides approximate ovulation dates and fertile times for women who have regular periods. (Regular periods mean having a period every 21 to 40 days.) Fertility charting, basal temperature tracking, and purchased ovulation test kits can also be used to help predict a woman’s fertile times. These are especially useful if a woman has irregular periods.
