    This is my first month trying it and it brought my Ovulation day forward by 2 days to cd19. I also got stronger Ovulation pains around that time as well.

    Hope it helps you x

    I took my on the days I use to take clomid on so 3-7 with the following amounts:
    cd3 - 120mg
    cd4 - 160mg
    cd5-7 - 200mg

    This cycle I'm going to use 200mg on days 3-7 and see what happens.

    Have you ever had clomid before?

    ps - they say about 100mg of soy is the same as 50mg of clomid apparently!

    I never used Clomid, my Gyn wanted me to use it for IUI, then we found out we had MFI and he suggested a fertility clinic to do ICSI in Barbados.
    My husband is in school full time in the USA and i quit my job to be with him so we have to try naturally until he is finished with school and we can afford to try ICSI.

    I ovulate regularly on CD 17/18 so I took soy for a couple of cycles and it brought my OV day forward by 2/3 days. The first cycle it brought it forward to CD 15 and the 2nd to CD 14. I didn't take them this month as I needed to keep AF away as long as possible for a papsmear appointment but if I'm not PG I'm definately going back on them next month!
