I am only 22 and I got a Dexa scan in a lab for my major at college and found out that it was low and so a doctor got me another one at a hospital and my score was -2.4 for my spine and -1.6 for my hip. There is almost no data on women my age taking osteoporosis medication, but my rheumatologist wants me to take reclast. I have not had any kids yet and am not sure if this could have negative effects on any future kids I could have and how long it can stay in your system. I just am too young to take a medicine that could do more harm than good and I was wondering if there was anyone who has taken reclast that could shed some light on the medicine? My mom was on fosomax after having a few kids and was not able to get pregnant after she was on it so I am just being extra careful before I get into taking all the medicines.View Thread
