Good luck to everyone trying Soy Isoflavones this cycle, I shall be too after AF shows up (currently on CD21 so knowing how irregular I am, I could have up to another 2 weeks left)...

I'll have to make sure my fiance gets the grapefruit juice in, in time!

Planning on taking it on CD 4-9 at 80mg on CD4,5,6,7 and 120mg on CD8 and CD9. I'll also take evening primrose oil at 1,500mg with a large glass of the grapefruit juice from CD8 to CD14 to help with CM.

I am predicting if ovulation does occur, it will be between CD12 and CD21. I'll use my saliva microscope from CD12 to keep an eye on what's going on.

Fertile cervical mucus. Different for everyone I suppose but I got the best result using both evening primrose and grapefruit juice for this. I don't usually produce any fertile CM at all. I read it can have this effect so I tried it and it worked for me. I got a lot more with the juice and oil together than with just the oil.

I'd never heard of that before. Do you have any side effects with the evening primrose oil?

This was a while ago, I can't remember where I read it, it was a similar TTC/ pregnancy forum site but I don't think it was this one. It was back when I was desperate enough to order non-presc clomid online, I know it's a stupid thing to do but I wanted to do a lot of research before I tried it and that was one of the tips I found.

No, no side effects at all for me. I did get some CM with just the EPO but I got about 3 times as much with the juice and I tried it more than once so I am fairly sure it helped. Since I was in hospital etc I've not done anything in the way of trying to induce ovulation as I have been ill (but I still chart) and have gone back to having no fertile CM at all. I could be wrong and it could be coincidence but it really did seem to help me.

I've been thinking of trying the evening primrose oil, but need to do some more reasearch on it. I'm still new to TTC and am trying to figure everything out.

Oic, well I wish you good luck with it there are loads of different things to try and tips and hints you find in various places like when I found that one.

I try to eat a lot of oranges and leafy greens like spinach as they help as well because they have d-Pinitol (which is about 60 for a tub of it in supplement form!) and I read that can help with insulin resistance in PCOS. I really must find that site again, it had a lot of little tips like that.

Yeah. I've started reading a lot about different supplements. I don't want to take too many different things because I have a hard enough time remembering to take a multivitamin every day!
