I did a bit of research on Soy Isoflavones because I was getting a bit desperate and didn't think my specialist was going to prescribe Clomid. He did and thankfully it worked.

But I found some research on PCOS and soy. Basically most people with PCOS have high levels of estrogen and taking soy (which mimics estrogen) can create more havoc. I have low estrogen so I was trying to find out whether it would help, but there was little research. But generally what I found was people saying don't take it if you have PCOS. But honestly I think if you can't get anything else and you're not ovulating, you're probably not going to do much harm if you start on a low dose and work your way up.

Me too!

I have severe pcos and never ovulate on my own. I wasn't expecting to ovulate let alone get a positive test. I am still early (10 dpo) so this week will be a testing frenzy to see it get darker.

If it is the concentrate ones then it is 20mg of soy per pill. If it is different then you can look up the brand on their website and it should tell you.

Hi AndreeZZ!

I also read about not taking it if you ovulate on my own and got a bit nervous. But I was ovulating late (CD 25ish) and the month I tried them I knew I'd not be with my OH around O time as I was away for a long weekend so thought I'd give it a go as we wouldn't have a chance that month anyway otherwise. As I said it moved it forward by two days but that was enough to allow us to catch that egg!

With regard to your dosage question it seems to be based on what you wrote that the pills only have 17mg actual SI so if you want 100mg you would need to take 5. BUT double check this as obviously I don't have the packet etc.
