Don't know what day of my cycle I'm on obviously (probably about day 109!!!), so I'm going to take them from today for 5 days and see what happens. It's from Holland and Barrett and says it's 750mg, but it only has 23g Isoflavones, so I might take one in the morning, and one at night. (It does say take 2-3 times daily, so I hope that's ok!!) Hoping for my BFP, and no side-effects!!
Good to find other people trying it too. Don't feel so crazy for getting it now!
I'll keep you posted.
hi danni they are the ones ive been taking i took 5 a day so total of 115mg each day fx they work

Wow, thanks for letting me know, I was worrying about whether they'd be too much or not, so I guess they're fine. I don't think I'm OV at all, so I might take three tablets a day this cycle, and pray for the best for both of us!! I've heard that they're pretty successful, so fingers crossed.

Hey hun, I got mine from Amazon!!! Infact I have found Amazon to be a little gold mine for ttc goods, often coming in much cheaper than shops and other sites - Clear blue digi opks were about 5 cheaper than in boots. and to think I thought they just sold books and DVD's!!!

For the researcher doing the poll:

I got a BFP on friday via a blood test at the doc on friday the 6th and a second on friday the 9th because i made them do it again (didn't believe them!) LOL

If this helps your research, this was my first month taking soy iso. It was my 11th month TTC following a m/c last august. Here is the dosage i used:

CD2-50mg
CD3-100mg
CD4-150mg
CD5-150mg
CD6-200mg

It was suggested to me by the woman who told me about taking soy (who also got a BFP on her first month taking it and was on cycle 11 of TTC, that gradually increasing the dosage over the 5 days seems to be helpful. I am in very early pregnancy, literally maybe 2 wks. I have not gotten a positive urine test yet but like i said, 2 positive blood tests from docs. I'm not sure how this pregnancy will go but i hope this info helps your research!

I voted that Soy did nothing for me
both cycles that I used it I did not ovulate, but I have no idea for sure if it was because of the Soy or my PCOS

I do know that it did not improve my cycle what so ever

Wow! Congratulations!!!
That's pretty interesting info. Am wondering if I should up my dosage now! Am currently trying just three (Holland and Barrett) tablets per day, which add up to 69mg I think. It does say on the label not to exceed stated dose of 2-3 tablets per day though...
