I just got a call from the hospital doing my surgery next Monday. They asked me for the names of anything I was taking including vitamins, and then they told me to stop taking anything that contains a blood thinner (aspirin or anticoagulant) right away because they don't want me to bleed during surgery. She said this definitely included my pre-natal vitamin and the complex B vitamin, but she wasn't sure about maca, evening primrose oil or the soy isoflavones.

I'm expecting AF this Friday so by Monday I would be taking all of those things. I read the side of the bottles and I think that maca and EPO are ok, but I'm still unsure about the soy because I haven't bought any yet and don't have a bottle to read. Would someone mind posting the ingredients on theirs for me so I can try to look it up?

I got two, I ordered straight soy isoflavones (The Vitamin Shoppe brand 100mg) off amazon, and they only contain soy bean extract and soy protein isolate. full list of ingredients is:

Dicalcium phosphate, microcrystalline cellulose, stearic acid, croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate, slilicon dioxide, pharmaceutical glaze. CONTAINS SOY. Yeah it really says that, LMAO.


BUT my cycle started way early, so I couldn't wait for the package. I ran to the grocery store and bought Estroven maximum strength (which contains 80mg of soy isoflavones).

It contains: Vitamin E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, Vitamin D3, calcium, selenium, chromium, phosphorus, Block cohosh root extract, isoflavones from non gma soybeans, Green tea extract, date seed extract, magnolia bark extract, cinnamon twig extract, cranberry juice, Boron chelate.

Other ingredient: calcium carbonate, dicalcium phosphate, microcrystalline cellulose, mmodified cellulose, vegetable stearic acid, silica, hypromellose, hydroxypropyl cellulose, natural source polyethylene glycol, titanium dioxide, riboflavin, and sodium citrate. CONTAINS SOY



Bear with me if I typoed any of that, It was a pain to read the packages and type as i go.

Also, the reason I ordered off of amazon in the first place is because I couldn't find just straight isoflavones at a store near me, so I would see if you can get it now, just in case you need to order it offline. The vitamin shoppe ones I ordered off amazon came in about 5 days though, fairly fast.


Also if AF comes friday you can just do soy on days 5-9 after the surgery.

Thanks, I will ask at the hospital how soon after surgery I can start the vitamins again and maybe go that route. I appreciate you posting all of that, I didn't realize that there was such a difference!
