Ever since I started the menopause, my doctor has been insisting I go and have a bone density test and when I finally did, even though I didn’t have a fractured bone since childhood, it turns out I have osteoporosis.

That’s why I was wandering if anyone on here was on prolia or forteo shots? All the experiences I read so far are either too good to be true, or just reporting side effects and I don’t want to spend money or suffer taking this medication because honestly, my osteoporosis hasn’t caused a single fracture yet.
If you are or have been on prolia shots, does your insurance cover it? For how long the treatment does last and, most importantly: was the prolia treatment effective for you?
