It is suggested that women who are TTC with soy isoflavones on their first few cycle days but I was wondering if I can use soy isoflavones on CD 15 (when I ovulate) versus taking them on CD 5-9. My theory is that it would make me "ovulate more" so as to have a higher chance of conceiving. When I say "ovulate more," I am talking about producing more of a certain chemical so as to have a better chance to conceive.
I would not reccommed taking it during Ov at all. I am currently taking soy for CD 5-9 and from what I understand it does not make you ovulate, it only develops the eggs that are already there budding. In fact it is warned that if you take it past CD9-10 it will stop you from Oing (not sure exactly why). So I suggest just waiting until your next cycle unless you get your bfp this time. Good Luck!
no, do not do this. Soy doesn't make you ovulate more. It deprives your brain of estrogen so that it thinks it needs to make more, which triggers ovulation. If you're about to ovulate, you're just going to put a stop to it completely if you take soy now.
Soy isn't something to mess around with, especially if you are ovulating regularily.
