I have pcos and took soy this month. I took it days 3-7

Day 3: 80mg (mis read how much soy iso was in it)
Day 4-7: 200mg.

It is half the strength of clomid so if you would normally take 100mg of clomid you take 200mg of soy iso.


It didn't bring on O early BUT I got a cold around my previous O time of cd16 and I had other signs I was going to O then but because of the cold it didn't happen. According to my temps on FF I ovulated on cd 26. After my mc 2 years ago my O date changed to cd 19-21 (constantly shifted). It used to be cd 17. So it is likely the soy tried to make me O early but I O'd late due to the cold.

I have no way to confirm ovulation because I'm doing this on my own. I have had no side effects.

I got my soy at GNC. It's called Soy Isoflavone concentrate. here is a link for them. http://www.gnc.com/herbs-o-s/420013....bs-o-s#start=1

These pills have only 20 mg of soy iso in them (the other 30mg is other stuff) so depending on what dose you do (usually a min of 100mg of soy) depends on how many pills you take.

I am 6dpo I believe, I have a few symptoms that seem promising.

yes. It's marketed for menopausal women as it mimics estrogen if taken every day. But it mimics how clomid works if taken at a higher dose for 5 days at the beginning of your cycle.

Hey!

I used them days 3-7 and if I remember correctly started at 120mg and increased up to 200mg. It brought my O forward by two days so not huge. But my ovulation was definitely stronger! I never got O pains but that month I did. I also got my BFP!

Do research it though. There is one really good page that discusses the days to take in relation to bringing forward O, making mature follicular etc. I went for the balance of earlier O and mature follicules. I'll try to find it for you and post if I do.

Some things to consider is that for some it can actually delay or stop ovulation. I've read that often that happens with people with PCOS. Also you have an increased chance of multiples if that's something that bothers you. Finally make sure to read the back as although my pills were 80mg there was only 50mg soy isoflsvones, so make sure to check this!

I'm a huge fan of soy as I'm currently expecting my soy baby!
