My friend just got pregnant her first month taking soy isoflavones that she bought from the bx here in oki. She's been trying for 3 1/2 years to get pregnant and is now 5 weeks! I've been ttc for a year now and am on a waiting list to see our fertility specialist on island. It's said to take a month and a half just to schedule an appointment, and then you have to wait for your appointment!
Anyone ever take them? Did they work for you?
If you haven't heard of them, they are supposed to be the "natural" clomid... I'm trying to think of any way I can get away from ever having to go, so if you've had success, please share!
I did my research on this product when I was trying to conceive. After TTC for awhile, I got pregnant on my first cycle using soy isoflavones. I got pregnant again with my second child on the first month I used the soy isoflavones. Both my kids were full-term, healthy babies, and I didn't have any side effects. My cycles returned to normal after having baby #2. I will use it again when we are ready for baby #3! It's less than $6.00 at Walmart, all-natural... I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
There is another forum where they have all been using it and it has helped women OV who haven't been OVing. Some have even got pg.
It does say not to use if you have thyroid problems and not to eat any other soy products for the rest of the month in case they interfer.
So if could make an appearance i might give them a go!
I have been TTC for 8 months and tried a variety of things - preseed, Robitussin, different positions, eating pineapple - none of it worked. This month I tried Soy Isoflavones for the first time - 100mg from CD3-7 and just got my BFP yesterday!!! I had the most powerful ovulation ever - had pains on both sides for about five days off and on, and obviously the soy helped!
Good luck ladies! Soy may not work for everyone but I am a believer!
