EmmyReece, I'm taking Soya Isoflavones, and I'm certain they're the same thing.
xshell79 Thankyou! I've been spacing them out throughout the day, and I'm not sure that's the right thing to do. I think I'll take your advice and just take them all at night. DHs a little worried about the size of the dose, but according to all me research, it's what you're meant to do for this purpose. Thankyou!!
The only side effects I've noticed are grouchiness and a bit of nausea. Also had a few aches and pains in my stomach, nothing serious, but I'm hoping that's them working their magic!! It's my last dose tomorrow so I should know if they've helped in about a week or so i suppose. FXd!!
How's everyone else doing?

CD11 and nothing yet, fertility monitor still showing low which is usual. Took 80mg of SI from CD2 - CD5 and 120 mg on CD 6. Normally OV around CD17.

Eeeek! Took my last dose yesterday, so hoping to see something happening next weekend! So exciting! I've decided to invest in a BBT thermometer and some OPKs, so waiting for them to arrive too. (I hope this PMA lasts...)
How's everyone else doing?

CD14 and trust me to get what seems like a dodgy stick on my CBFM on CD13

I let the monitor eat the dodgy stick (labelled CD13) and then did another 1 (labelled CD13 2) which looks very much like a peak to me but the monitor still thinks I'm only high.

So I've either brought OV forward by 5 days or so or I haven't OVd and monitor probably won't pick up a peak as on todays stick the LH looks to be decreasing.

I'm not organised enough to temp so time will tell. The countdown has begun. I have been getting quite strong OV twinges the last few days though, don't normally notice them.

I'm afraid I'm pretty new to all this temp-ing and OPK-ing, but I got my supply of OPKs and a BBT Thermometer today, so hopefully I'll know what's going on soon!
Though I've tried OPKs before, I didn't get any result at all. Today (CD 8-10, after taking the soya last week) I got a faint positive!!! woohoo!!!
truly_blessed, hopefully the Ov twinges are a good sign? FXd!

I finally found them today!! WOO..

So.. I have a question. I am mid cycle. I believe around day 45ish.. My cycles can run super long.. like up to nine months. Would it be okay to start mid-cycle or would it really be better to wait until CD #1?

I believe, from what I've read, but I'm no expert by any means. You should wait until the very beginning of your cycle as taking them any other time can stop ovulation all together.

I think they are recommended as a daily supplement for menopause.

As I said I'm no expert but it's just what I think I read somewhere. xx

I think my OV was CD13 this time as my Ov sticks look to be back to a single line again, same as CD12. If that's the case OV was brought forward by about 3-4 days from the last few cycles. I would have thought that should been my cycle will be around 27-28 days this time instead of the 31-32 days it has been lately.

Will keep you updated but probably be quiet from me for a while now unless I get another peak and Cd13 wasn't the day.

Hey Krissie, I've not had AF since March/April, so I decided to just start the Soy mid-cycle. I'm not sure whether it can have a negative effect, so I wouldn't like to suggest you do the same, but I'll keep you up to date on how it's affecting me.
