Oestrogen and Osteoporosis

As I am not having periods at the moment, I have been put on the pill to give me the oestrogen needed to prevent oesteoporosis. But what I don't understand is why women are more likely to get it than men, seeing as men do not have periods in the first place. Why does oestrogen levels affect women's bone health, but not men's? What keeps men's bones strong that women don't have?
