    I'm on CD13. Got my OPK+ yesterday! I had really strong and distracting ovarian pains starting on Sunday that got stronger on Monday and Tuesday. Mostly on the left side but I also had discomfort on the right. Hardly any discomfort today. My temping has been a little messed up but I did have a little rise today. Hoping that we are catching that egg! Now my favorite part... the very loooonnng 2ww.

    Well today I have the darkest positive OPK ever!! :wohoo: Yesterdays were + too!

    I'm so chuffed, my OPK's have only ever been 'just' positive this year, never this dark!!

    I also have every other fertile sign in the book & my CBFM has got it's act together finally (went straight from low to peak)

    Wonder if it's the soy?! :)

    I seriously need to get some :sex: action in at some point today & hopefully tomorrow (if OH isn't broken by then :rofl:)

    Wow!!! I never thought it would make such a noticeable difference on the first cycle!

    Shame I can't temp this cycle, i'd love to see what it does to my chart!


    Hi kiki

    I started it this month.

    I took 1 x 60mg capsule (with food) from day 2 of my period through to day 5 if that helps? (it's supposed to work a bit like clomid)
    Lots of girls take 120mg, but I wanted to start on half that dose as I've not used it before & can always increase it next time xx

    Mine was powder in a capsule, so I'm presuming it's the same stuff?

    I wonder if anyone else knows?:flower:

    It did shock me too. I was uber excited. My chart looked FAB the month I took soy, unlike my anovulatory, crazy temp cycles (like this one, although FF seems to "think" I ovulated.) I also ovulated the month FOLLOWING soy, even though i didn't take it that month. I also took a low dose: 80mg. Don't think you have to over do it on the soy to get results.

    :happydance: hope this means a BFP for you!!

    yay dan-o, so happy it's worked for you! :happydance:

    unfortunately nothing for me, have not had any peaks and no sign that I have ov'd so it looks like a fail here for the soy :hissy:

    Just kinda curious as to how the soy is working for you ladies?

    I had yet another chemical last cycle so I thought soy would be an option this time. Looks like I'm not taking enough of it though! Only been taking 80mg (2 pills) I'm going to step it up tonight, doing 3-7 or is it 8?

    Well, I'm in the 2ww, so we will see. When I took the Soy Iso I took 160mg a day from days 2-6 (you only take it for 5 days). I could definately feel that something was going on. I am 11dpo right now and am praying that I get a BFP this week. I haven't been temping cause it makes me manic. I do feel like I have some symptoms but I am trying to ignore them so I am not too disappointed if I am not preg.

    I'll post later this week with an update! Good luck!!

    I took soy isoflavones 100mg days 3-7 this cycle. I ovulated a day later than previously and am now in the 2ww...Looking forward to seeing how those further into 2ww get on...Hopefully at least one of us will get their BFP this cycle. If you are in there soy bean stick!!!!

    I'm about 7dpo today & my 2ww symptoms are defintely more pronounced than usual.
    I reckon the soy has increased my progesterone levels somehow, as the only time I had boobs this sore was when i got pg on my december 2008 cycle!

    Roll on test day!! :D Fx
