HI,
I'm not sure about it, have read some good stuff on it. I hope you get an answer, because I too would like to read a few success stories from the ladies on here, since I'd like to start using it next cycle if we have a "no go" with this 1.

Sorry if I'm no help.

I used it this cycle and conceived. It was the very first cycle of using the Soy, we had been trying for 6 months. I took 120 mg CD 4-8. Other ladies started at 120 mgs and went up to 160 the last two days. Before that I had also been taking and continued to take Vitamin b6 and vitamin b complex with folic acid. Stopped consuming caffeine and consumed no refined sugars.

If your going to take the Soy I have a few suggestions. One would be to take it at night .. the same time each day. It gave me quite the headache for two days on CD 5-6. Also after finishing the Soy iso's I would suggest perhaps looking into taking mucinex (in the blue box) during the time of O. For a few days before O and a day after. Helps increase cervical mucus, OR you just drink a ton more water than usual during O this will help as well. I noticed that this cycle I was REALLY dried up in the CM department. I thought for sure because of that.. my chances were probably ruined for conceiving this cycle...but apparently not. It's just something I would have done if I had tried the SI's for a second cycle. Thirdly.. if you use OPK's its going to give you some early false positives. The surge in estrogen from the soy makes you feel like your O'ing or gears you up to O much earlier. I had O symptoms on CD 8-9, but BBT confirmed O on CD 14. However you CAN O earlier than usual on SI's. So def make sure you know when your O'ing. I found the best and honestly most accurate was using BBT.

I had also decided to take natural progesterone cream as well this cycle starting on 3dpo. Still taking applying it to this very day.

Thought I was out this cycle but had AF like cramping on 10 dpo.. thought maybe AF is arriving early.. she didnt show so after a few days so on 12dpo and I gave in tested and got my first BFP on a dollar store test and a e.p.t. Digital. Good luck!! let me know if you have any other questions!! :)

I started taking soy this cycle. I took 100mg cd 3-7, as well as evening primrose oil to help with cm. I'm currently on cd 23 and no o yet. My last cycle was 86 days, so any improvement on that will be great. I have also been ttc since August as well.I am using opk's and they are finally starting to get darker so hopefully it happens soon!

Hello!

So I thought I would give you an update Wilson, I'm on cd26 and I'm pretty sure good things are happening. I've been using my opk's once a day for about a week and there was just a line about half the color of the control, then last night it got darker-just the tiniest but lighter than the control, and around midnight I started getting some pretty sharp pains around my left ovary. If I'm about to o, then that means the soy helped move my o date ho about 50 days! Fingers crossed! We bd Saturday morning and was planning tonight, but warned hubby that I'm pouncing on him when he gets home!

I hope its our month too! I've suddenly found myself surrounded by pregnant people-2 cousins, 3 girls at my regular job and 1 at my part time job....not sure how much more of it I can take...they are all due betwen July and Sept....all I keep thinking is "that should be me". And I'm not feeling too hopeful, hubby just got home from work and he's not feeling well so bding is out for tonight and because of out work schedules, I wind see him now until Wednesday night. hope you have better luck this cycle Wilson!
