Seven seas trying for a baby, anyone taken/taking this????
Hi everyone waiting for first proper af after bcp and can't find soy isoflavones anywhere other than in menopause vits (is this what people are taking?) I got some seven seas trying for a baby and on the box it says can help balance hormones has anyone tried it? found it helped them?
I've never used it but I think people usually take soy iso around days 3 to 9 of their cycle. I know that it doesn't work for everyone, and for some people it even seems to mess up their cycle and/or result in an annovulatory cycle. But, as with most supplements, there's an element of trial and error I think.
If it was me, as you haven't been TTC long & your body hasn't had a chance to get back to 'normal' off BCP yet, I would give it a miss at this stage. In fact, I would strongly recommend having at least three to six months with no supplements beyond vitamins/TTC-vitamins, as you don't know that there's anything wrong yet, or any reason to start taking possibly unnecessary supplements.
I'm always wary of adding supplements unless you are trying to correct a specific, identified, problem, as often people just end up introducing additional problems they wouldn't have experienced otherwise (e.g. whether that's delayed ovulation/annovulatory cycles etc).
That's just my personal opinion though of course. Best of luck.
Thanx chartsnhearts that's good advice I wasn't really sure a few people have said that because I was on cerazette which can mess up your cycles soy might help get them back or help o because I used opk's from cd9-cd20 (assuming cd1 was first day of my 7 day wb) and didn't have even a faint line most days on the opk's, I am just being impatient and want either o or af but I think I will take your advice and give soy a miss untill my body has had a chance to sort it's self out on its own xxxx
