So I decided to wing it and consider the light bleeding days I had after provera a period. We'll see if I screw myself up. But I'm on my 2nd day of taking soy, hoping this goes well, I'm trying days 3-7. Anyone else tried it? Past or present?
TTC#4 since 09/13 Anovulatory cycles 9/13-3/14 Clomid 50mg- No O
Current cycle 3/19/14 Clomid 100mg 3-7 Waiting to O
In a nutshell, soy isoflavones are supposed to act like "nature's clomid." They basically trick your body into producing more estrogen and induce ovulation in women who are not ovulating, or produce a stronger ovulation in women who do ovulate (though most sites don't condone taking it of you already O on your own, for fear that it could mess that up. You take it like clomid, for 5 days in the beginning of your cycle. Its been said that taking it early, like days 1-5 or 2-6 will produce MORE follicles, so some women use it to TTC twins. Taking it later like CD 5-9 will produce a more mature, better quality egg. Don't start soy after CD 5 though. If you Google search it, like soy isoflavones and TTC, it will bring up tons and tons of success stories and info about it. Its not for everyone but I figured it was worth a shot for me
I will share my experience with soy. I took soy cd 3-7 a few months back and it really messed up my cycle, and I also had taking clomid last Feb and it also messed up my cycle, but that is just my personal experience with it. I know a few ladies on this board that have got their while using soy some get their bfo the first month and others it takes a few months of getting the right dose that is needed for you.
