AIM: There are numerous studies in the literature investigated the relationship between osteoporotic fractures and reproductive history however, its effect is not clear. The data on osteoporotic fracture in relation to reproductive history were very limited in Turkey. We aimed to define the relationship between osteoporotic fractures and parity and fertile period by examining our outpatient clinic data retrospectively.
METHODS: Records of 455 osteoporotic women, admitted to outpatient clinic within last 10 years, were included in the study. The patients were divided into two groups according to the existence of osteoporotic fracture then these two groups were compared in terms of number of parities and fertile period.
RESULTS: Only statistically significant difference between the two groups was observed in number of parities. This significant difference in number of parities was only valid for five and more parities. The fertile period was similar in both groups.
CONCLUSIONS: Having more than five parities seem to increase the risk of osteoporotic fracture in our study population.

Key words: Osteoporosis, fracture, parity, menarch, fertile period
