    Hello again, here's another one I came across on another site. Apparantly Soy/Soya Isoflavins work in a similar way to Clomid to stimulate egg production and release. I thought this may be of interest to anyone who is waiting to hear or is looking into going down the clomid route. I have copied this from the other site, hope thats allowed.

    The Phytoestrogens in soy are thought to act in a manner similar to that of drugs like clomid. In other words, clomid (and the Phytoestrogens in soy) have anti-estrogen like properties. They fool your body into thinking that your estrogen levels are low. This causes a release of FSH and LH which helps to stimulate follicle production.

    The soy product most used is called Soy Isoflavones. You can buy them at Wal Mart. The brand name is Spring Valley and can be found in the vitamin section by the pharmacy. They are 40mg per pill (check the bottle and make sure). It works similar to clomid. You take it on the same cd as you would clomid and a dosage according to what works for you and it will/ has been known to help PCOSers ovulate.

    The dose that is best to start with is 80 mg on CD 3-7 or 5-9. If you don't O from that dose then you should move up until you do. There have been some that have taken it late in their cycle and it has helped with O. I took it and 4 days later Oed. Didn't get PG but it is something to think about if you have a very long cycle you can take it for 5 days.

    We get asked a lot about NPC so I thought that I would give a little info about how to use it. You use the dose on the bottle and put it on your chest or other places that have thin skin. You would use it for 14 days and then stop. If you don't get AF within 10 days then you would want to take it again for a week.

    Here's the Thread about using Soy.

    None of us on this thread are medical doctors. Please use use your own judgement when using soy or any other alternative methods.

    Can I take soy late in my cycle?
    I have taken it late in my cycle and Oed, but as with anything you should do it with an open mind.

    What time of day should I take soy?Soy can cause headaches in some so if you want to sleep through your s/e then take it at night before bed.

    Do I take it all at the same time?Yes, you should take the whole dose at the same time every day. Even if you are on a high dose.

    What if I dont O on 80mg?You can move up the dose on the next cycle.

    How long till I O with soy?It all depends on the person taking it. O can take a few days to a few weeks. Keep checking your signs for O.

    Where can I get my soy?
    I have done alot of searching and the place that we suggest is walmart they have it for less then $6. If you dont have a walmart close then here are a few links to places that sell soy and the prices.

    The one that I suggest. It is 40mg so you will have the same dose in the pills that most of us have.

    NPC?This is the NPC that I have found that looks like it will be the best for us.
