I'm sorry I don't really know much about Soy Iso. I know Aubrey conceived using them so hopefully she will see this and have some answers for you!

I don't know a heap about Soy Iso's , but I would highly, highly suggest you request an Rx for provera to initiate a good healthy AF, then start the Soy after that.

Aubs is the one to talk to about Soy....

Here is something I saved a long time ago... It should be helpful...

HOW TO TAKE SOY ISOFLAVONES: To elaborate on how to take Soy Iso, here are some guidelines...
1. Because Soy Iso is natural, the dosage is twice as much as what your Clomid dose would be. Before you say "But but but, I've never taken Clomid!" Calm yourself! Here is a good way to start...
The starter dose of Clomid is usually 50 mg. Therefore you would need 100 mg. of Soy Iso. Most bottles however (such as the Walmart Brand) come in 40 mg. tablets. Sooo either only take 2 for 80 mg. or take 3 to make 120 mg. From there you can determine if you need to up your dose next cycle. DO NOT TAKE MORE THAN 200 MG.!
2. Soy Isoflavones are taken for 5 days ONLY in the beginning of your cycle. Taking them any more could negatively affect your fertility!
For example you would take them CD 1-5, 3-7, or 5-9. Most women do CD 3-7 to receive a happy medium of mature yet multiple egg release possiblities. IT IS NOT RECOMENDED TO START BEYOND CD 5!
Just like Clomid, there are different days different women take Soy Iso. As a general rule, the earlier in your cycle you take it, the more eggs you will release but the less mature they will be. The later you take it there will be less eggs released but they will be more mature.
3. DO NOT TAKE SOY ISO AND VITEX AT THE SAME TIME!



to be brutally honest, the ONLY way you will know if you are ovulating or if Soy Iso is working is by CHARTING YOUR BASAL BODY TEMPERATURE, or mid-cycle ultrasounds/monitoring done by your doctor!
