Q:

What is the relationship between Vitamin D and Calcium?

A:

Calcium is widely recognized for its role in bone strength. However, there needs to be a process to bring the calcium out of your digestive tract with you ingest foods or vitamins, and Vitamin D is a catalyst for this process. Vitamin D helps absorb calcium and hold onto it so you don't lose it again through your kidneys, bringing it into the bones where you need it to keep your bones healthy and strong. You can speak with your physician if you have questions about your Vitamin D and Calcium levels, and to learn whether a supplement is recommended for you.

Q:

How effective is the birth control pill?

A:

The birth control pill can be extremely effective - more than 99% effective - at preventing pregnancy. The key is taking the pill properly and consistently, and those women who do not take the pill properly could be at a much higher risk of accidentally getting pregnant. Since taking the pill regularly is something you have to be good at every day, you can talk to your doctor about whether it is the best birth control choice for you.
