I plan on taking soy my next cycle. Right now I'm just waiting for AF to show up. We took a little break this month because I was driving myself crazy with charting. I have some anovulatory cycles and don't want to go for Clomid right away like my doctor is recommending. I was planning to take it on CD3-7 and am either going to do 120mg every day, or 120mg 3-5 and 160mg 6 & 7.

Is it better to up the dose the last day or two? Or should I take the same dose every day?

I wouldn't know Kerr. I took 100mg CD5, then 150mg CD6-9. I didn't increase on last day because it's my first time taking it.
120mg - 160mg sounds good.
I'm seeing my doctor in two weeks, so hopefully she can help me in this month doesn't work out.

Some say that giving a little increase the last day or two is more like how the body naturally increases FSH throughout the cycle. I've always upped it the last two days, I guess just read up and see what you think! Good luck!

I'm just happy to be done taking it
I had bad headaches and cramps. Another reason I didn't want to increase to 200mg.
If it doesn't work this month I'll just do 150mg and 200mg then. I'm stupid, I bought the pill this month but forgot to check the exp. date, they are exp. this month

Does soy increase chances for twins?

Yes, some data shows that soy iso's do increase your chances of twins, much like clomid does

I would love twins. My mother-in-law is a twin and it skip generation. Plus, I got a reading two years ago and everything she told me happen which is weird. She was very good, she mention that she could see two pregnancies but three kids. I can't wait to see.

I would love twins too, My DH worries about our age (33 and 35) and us wanting two kids, so I figure both at once would be great! But hey, not that we wouldn't be elated with however it happens. Lots of the soy iso info that I found was actually from a website for people trying to conceive twins, so I heard a lot about how it can cause (just like clomid) stronger ov, better eggs, and possibly more than one follicle.

Not to add any crazy ideas, but that website talked a lot about people wanting twins and doing soy iso's from CD's 1-5 and then clomid days 5-9. I'd be super hesitant to try it, other info I've seen says they'd cancel each other out, but hey - another year of trying and I might be up for anything!!

I would be open to the idea of twins. Twins run in my family and my husband's. My husband is a twin, but the father's side doesn't increase your chances of twins. Only the mother's side does.
