VIT D needed?: Only your team can answer this after reviewing your history, doing a physical exam and maybe more lab tests. Meet with them. They will better know the levels of D where you live.

See below: Take 4000 units of vitamin D3 each day for 3 months and after that 2000 units/day will keep you vitamin D sufficient. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!
