anyone trying soy isoflavones/thinking about it this cycle? im sure there have been plenty of threads about this but i actually decided to give it a try this cycle. took 115mg cd 3-6 (it's a weird # because of the mg in the brand i got) i only took them four days instead of the suggested 5 because of the side effects i was having. currently on cd10 and so far nothing unusual...
to everyone trying soy out there, sending lots of and big hopes for some sticky 's !!!!
I had sore bbs and lots of cramps this past weekend (cd12-14) i didn't chart/temp/use opk or anything, but im thinking that may have been O. and i also had EWCM for the first time! (maybe partially because I took 2000mg evening primrose oil from when I took soy until this past weekend?)
Today I am cd19 and I've been very very crampy and getting random headaches throughout the day. Whenever I bend down and stand up again I feel a sort of stretching pain right in my lower abdomen/pelvis/hip area...idk what this means and I'm trying not to symptom spot (can't bear getting my hopes up again) so either this is just my body's reaction to the soy or it was just a really good idea!
I think you should give it a try! Do as much research as you can before hand (if you haven't already), I've heard good and bad things but I decided hey might as well try it as not much else seems to work
That sounds very promising Cookie! well af just landed so im going to start cd5. have to make a trip to holland and barrett to get some. F'xd for you. please make sure to keep me updated. the sore boobies are a good sign the estrogen is increasing i think
I am going to start it tonight ladies! I am on CD5 today and I have PCOS. I have a few friends who have PCOS and they are now pregnant!
I also am going on metformin soon, hopefully all of this will help.
Vichy--best of luck to u! Will you do cd5-9 then? How many mg are you going to take?
Honestlinzel--best luck to you as well! How much soy are you taking? Great to hear you know of others having success. I don't have pcos but I have very irregular cycles (and the cause of that is still a mystery) and I don't think I ov on my own. So hoping soy fixed that.
Laurac1988--good luck to you (x3!) Lol definitely keep us updated with how it goes. What cd do you think you'll start? Not ovulating is a horrible feeling isn't it ;/ how can you figure out how long your luteal cycle is? I've heard of it but didn't know it could vary!
Oh and to update, today is cd20 and I've still been having lots of cramps. They were mostly this morning. When I woke up I had really weird abdominal pains too, like hunger pains, but I did eat last night so not sure. I also felt like I was going to throw up after I ate a lemon this morning (I'm strange and I eat lemons casually, lol) I was nauseus for all of 5min and then it passed so...who knows!!... Again trying not to symptom spot just take things naturally. If I did O when I think I did then I should be about 5-7 dpo. Will update as anything interesting happens!
