Iam lactose intolerant and get severe bloating when I eat or drink dairy products. But as a woman, I also worry about not getting enough calcium and frankly hate swallowing pills. What else can I do?

Lactose intolerance does not prevent you from having curd, buttermilk and split milk products. You can consume them. If your calcium and vitamin D levels are low, take granules of vitamin D and calcium, available in the form of liquid and also small tablets.
