Well I took my last day of them tonight. The worst thing side effect wise was just being overly hot at night. blah. I hate being hot but being as its been in the negatives here it really wasn't such a bad thing. But no head aches, nothing out of the ordinary. So now I get to wait to see what happens at the beginning of next month. If this doesn't work, well, oh well I guess but that means that my fabulous doctor is going to put me on the clomid probably. Well depending on how my DH's sperm count turns out. wish me luck.
hiya lisek, ill keep my fingers crossed for you, hopefully they will work! I have been waiting for this post lol, just to see what you have said about them. if i dont get a bfp this month im going to give them a go next.
How is your LO? i think you had him before i had my daughter, so he will be just over a year now?(phoebe was 13th jan)
I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get your bfp and dont need em. My LO is doing great. He turned 1 the day after xmas. He's walking and being silly and crazy. I love it. I'll post more about the soy once I figure out if I O'd on time and all. Can you believe how big our LO's are getting?
I'm so happy you're the guinea pig so to speak lol. Thanks!! Can't wait to find out how it all went. I've recommended this to someone else, although told her to do more reading before she dives head first Hopefully, this can be the answer for some women who don't want to take pharmaceuticals, or would rather try natural approaches before hand.
just out of interest, what mg are you using? ive been reading loads tonight and from what i can gather, people take 150-160mg. the only tablets of it i can find in shops near me are 750mg(!!!)
Phoebe is doing great too. shes been walking for a few weeks, although will NOT wear shoes!she is so funny,when im trying to feed her or be serious she pulls a face where she closes her eyes and pulls a hugs cheesy grin showing her teeth! me and dh both laugh as its so funny!!
hoping i can give her a little brother or sister soon!
I am taking 160 mgs. So far no side effects that have lasted past the initial frame of time I was taking them. I should be hitting my fertile window soon. I'm so glad that the hot flashes are only when I'm taking them. Oh and my bbt seemed to be lower in the morning than it normally is. I dont know if that is normal or not or maybe I've just been sleeping with the covers off a lot more often. Who knows.
Well the hot flashes pass and I've temp'd just for the heck of it during one and my temp goes up to 98 but then once its passed it goes back to anywhere between the mid 96's and the low 97's. I generally dont sleep with my blankets , lol. My DH is a total blanket hog. I know that the temp of the room does affect your bbt. So who knows? I am having a ton of ewcm today so thats promising I think.
I got mine at walmart and 2 tablets were 80mg so I was taking four a night. It had the mg broken down into what was in it and the soy isoflavone in them was 40mg a pill. I dont know what to say about yours.
so does this mean they are 400mg? or less? if so does that mean i could just cut one in half, then that in half then half again to get 150mg or does it not work like that!!?!
im confused lol
Actually after reading your post again , I believe that means that 10 percent of that per pill is the isoflavones which would mean that they were 40 mg. I think I'm doing my math right that 10 percent of 400 is 40 right? Its late and I am not in my right mind. I should be able to do simple math. lol.
hey lisek, just wondering where you were and when your planign on testing! im quite excited to see what happends lol, think im so interested as i plan on taking them next cycle, and have ordered them on sunday,after i finally found some online, natures best and there 100mg of pure soy isoflavones.
Also I found some cheap HPT's at the dollar store that are 25mIU/ml. And you know what as bad as I am about premature testing, buying them for a buck a piece is my price. As far as I've read and what I've hear this particular brand is actually pretty accurate. Again , wish me luck
oooo ill keep my fingers and toes all crossed for you!!
I buy my pg tests off a popular auction site and there 10mIU/ml, there the most sensitive ones ive found and there cheap so i can test plenty lol
I have a question you might of found some info on while researching. I have found a couple of people, but not much. what happeneds if you know your not O'ing, and therefore take the soy later in your cycle than at the begining? i am on cd 27 today, no sign of O and no sign of af. my cycles when i do O are usually 31-34.the women i have found that have taken it later did O a week or so after they took it. Im wondering if i should take it as im not O'ing, and therefore nothing to mess up!

Reason: because im blonde and what i wrote didnt make sense. its late lol
Lisek! Funny, I was doing research on soy isoflavones and here popped up your thread! And here I was thinking I wouldn't "see" you until our 2WW, ha!
Ok, so now I know you were on the SI this last cycle....hmmm....I bought it today and was thinking about doing 200mg. Do you know of a site that goes over the different dosage options? I read somewhere that 200 was fine but since you were on less I can't help but wonder what is best.
Hope you are doing well

Inkedflamingo!! Oh this is funny. I think I might give one more cycle a go on it. I still have to wait for my DH to have his swimmers analyzed and jeez that's expensive and so not covered by our insurance. I guess after that we get to see if its not him whats up with me. oh joy. I've never had a prob getting preg before this time. Its like I turned 35 and magically conception became a difficult thing. Figures this is the last one and the hardest to conceive. ANYWAY, back to topic. I cant remember where I found the dosage I think I just used a search engine and viola up came several sites with several options. Obviously I couldn't tell you which. I dont know if its against rules to send it in a private message. I could email the administration or moderators or whom ever and ask. I was taking 160 but the site I found said it could be up to 180mgs of it. I might try the 180 this time. I think I screwed up last cycle though because the first day , cd 5, I only took 80 mgs not paying attention to what it said on the bottle about how much a tablet was mg wise. So we shall see.
