Calcium: Calcium in the right dose should not cause constipation. How much calcium are you taking, and are you also taking vitamin D. I strongly recommend that you go to a nearby library and read about the important amount of calcium and vitamin D. Of importance you must get to know what dose is OK for calcium and vitamin D. In many places milk will include both calcium and vitamin D.
