    Yes if you have too much soy it might be bad for you, but there is actually no evidence to back that up(no studies on humans, only animals). But if you only take soy in the beginning of your cycle and stay away from it the rest of the month it can actually boost estrogen and promote ovulation. Doc said it's like 'nature's clomid' if taken (soy isoflavones 80mg) for 5 days in the beginning of cycle (example, CD 2-7, 3-8, or 4-9)

    Hey, Prayerful! I'm using soy isoflavones this cycle, I used 120mg days 2-6 I think. I'm pcos with irregular/absent cycles...so i had to wait for a cycle to use it with. I am waiting on either bfp or af now in the next week. fingers x'd.

    sorry :witch: arrived, fingers crossed for next cycle!
    I am waiting for her too now - back to low fertility on the cbfm, no peaks. Don't want her to arrive too soon - I'm off diving next week! Sometime the week after would be perfect!

    yeah she took soy to get her bfp!

    Frogger you should take soy earlier than that, it'll help you ov earlier! Which could help considering your long cycle. Mine went from 44 days to 34 days after taking the soy. I took soy cd 2-7 and ov'd on cd 19. (long lp, i know, 15 days.)
