Soy Isoflavones to help with ovulating earlier in cycle


So I'm on my 4th postpartum cyele and am ovulating around cd 30 which is SO frustrating...feels like I'm waiting ages to ovulate it's so stressful.
Anyway, I was wondering has anyone successfully used soy isoflavones to help their bodies ovulate earlier?

yes i was actually pleasantly surprised i actually conceived my son by using them, after 4 cycles i used them on my 5th and it worked! i started using them again last cycle but instead of days 2-6 like i did with my son, i used them 1-5, now i'm trying them 2-6 again i just took my last pills last night hoping they work their magic again but not sure if it will or not.

i took them as follows:
CD2: 100mg
CD3: 100mg
CD4: 100mg
CD5: 150mg
CD6: 150mg

as for where you can buy them i assume most pharmacies and health food stores have them, or you can buy them on Amazon. some doses are in 50mg tabs like mine and some are in 40mg its whatever you prefer or can find. You need to take them around the same time and its better if you do it at night

Following. I just started looking into this and haven't been able to find too many personal experiences.

I have PCOS and either ovulate late/not at all. We want to start trying in the fall and I planned on just taking femara again, however I kinda want to start these at the start of my next cycle just to see if it works.

I have read online that if ypu have PCOS ypu shouldnt take soy isoflavones. But maybe talk to your doctor?

I'm trying them this cycle, after having two consecutive chemical pregnancies. I'm taking them days 3-7, doses 120, 160, 160, 200, 200. I got mine from Tesco.

If you google it, there's a great thread on I think Babycentre, listing success stories with soy, there's loads!

I used soy with my last pregnancy because my LP sucked and got pregnant the first month on it!

That's awesome! My LP is crap too as well as late ovulating/long cycles. What dose did you take and on what days in your cycle?
