So I'm on day four out of five days on 160 mg of soy isoflavones. I've been lucky because I've been taking it at bedtime and sleeping through the side effects. I'm so hopeful that it works, I wish I could up my dose to 200 mg but they only had the 80 mg bottles at my local walmart. So hopefully this works with just 160 mg.....Anyone had any luck on 160 mg of soy?
I've been on 100 mg last cycle and i saw improvement in my cycle length as well as a strong O. I will be O-ing soon-ish as i stopped Soy on friday so i will get to see if it woks again. I am very hopeful. I think that with 160mg you should definitely see some kind of change.
Soy? Someone please fill me in. What does it do? When do you take it and stop it?
It is Soy Isoflavones. You take it for 5 days in the beginning of you cycle and it has an impact on your O. I take it from CD2 to CD6 to produce an earlier O since i usually have long cycles. It has shaved around 4 to 5 days on my cycles so far.
I know you can also take it later like CD3to7, CD4-8 and even CD5-9. I know they all have different effects. But mainly it is used to produce, earlier O, stronger O, more follies and so on.
I have heard it can make you a bit dry, but i have not experience that yet., some ladies use Pre-seed to help that and i have also heard of a natural supplement something Raspberry...
Oh and you take around 100mg. It is sort of the natural Clomid, usually doctors will prescribe 50 mg but since this is not as strong you can take 100mg. You can take more but not more than 200mg. I think in the States they come in 40 mg tablets so you can take 80mg or 120mg. In Canada i have found 50mg so i can exactly 100mg, one in he morning and one at night.
I was taking the 40mg tabs of soy iso, but just ran out, so went and bought
more, good thing i looked at the bottle, cause these ones are 80mg, if I would
have taken the same amount of pills as the other bottle, I would have been taking
360 mg today.. THANK YOU for posting this, made me take a second look...
I did soy for like 2 cycles and successful on my second soy cycle back in April It ended early on but I am a very believer in soy! Did stagger mine all the way to to the max of 200mg a day on CD 2-6 each time
And if the soy does work this cycle and I ovulate, I'm going to take it cd's 2-6 the next and see if I can find the 40 mg pills so I can take 200 mg. So far I'm loving soy, and have read so many success stories on it.
