That issue was one of my concerns when I started Fosamax. It seemed like the doctor was telling me to take it for the rest of my life. When I questioned the information that it stays in the bones up to 10 years the doctor admitted that some of it does leave over time. I just didn't understand why the need to take a medication indefninitely if it's known to be stored in the body for up to 10 years.

I know I didn't answer your question but I think I'd be concerned about taking taking birth control so long that you don't know really when your hormone levels begin getting less and you start into menopause. I'm no expert but it seems like that happens over a span of several years and not necessarily at age 50 and would be a big shock to the body to get off birth control and already be in menopause. I can see why taking hormones longer would help the bones though.
