Hey, Jam!!

I just researched Soy today and found out that it may have a negative impact on a woman's fertility. I don't know how true that is. But, if you google something like Soy Milk and Infertility I think you'll find a lot of what I have read about it.

I drink light soy milk every day...about 16 oz. I am not lactose intolerant, I just prefer the taste over milk. It kind of startled me reading all of that stuff, but I don't think it will hinder our TTC efforts because I don't overconsume the product. I have heard more positive things about soy than negative.

I'd really like to know what others thought about it and I'm sure tons of soy drinkers have become pregnant!

Hi Silk is a decent brand and tastes good.

I thik what is being found and forgive me if I'm wrong is that when you eat or drink soy--it actually stimulates the body to develop stronger follicoles in the uterus. This in turn releases estrogen.

Too much estrogen can cause infertility--however--there are a # of women who are taking soy suppliments on this site who are taking them for the purpose of getting preggers.

Soy apparently works similar to Clomid--a fertility drug which works exactly as above mentioned.

I would ask your doctor or pharmacist before going forward. That said, I doubt a glass of silk will bother you long term as long as you're just having 1-2 servings a day.

I only like the chocolate soy milk. I don't have it often but now and then I will pick up the low fat chocolate soy. I don't care much for the flavor of the vanilla one which is saying something because I usually LOVE vanilla and aren't a big fan of chocolate.!

Hey Lackie--SOY milk does NOT raise your choresterol.

I have HIGH chorlesterol from normal bad genes and have to be careful how much extra added chorlesterol I add to my body.

I love Silk soy milk... my cousin and I both have adverse effects to cow milk, she's preg and drinks soy milk so I think it's ok to drink but like anything else- in moderation.

I am iffy about the health effects of soy. I will use soy milk if it is on sale but usually I use Almond Breeze. It is still low in fat and calories but no soy and no dairy. I like it better than the soy milk. It costs about the same and they often have coupon dispensers near it.

You know-_I have used almond milk in baking and found it exceptional!

I am not sure why I guess just texture. Also as an addition to sweet hot drinks like hot chocolate I found it great too. And it doesn't curdle.

A friend of mine gave me a recipie for peppermint milk==which is
Almond milk, peppermint hot chocolate and white chocolate hot chocolate (mixed 1/2 and 1/2)--whip it on high in blender until frothy and then microwave til lukewarm & drink with whip cream (of course!) & sprinkle with crushed candy cane. instead of water for the hot chocolate--use the milk.

I have had it at her place and it's great! lol

How does soy affect fertility?
Soy and Estrogen
Soy is an excellent source of protein and the female reproductive hormone estrogen. Soy foods contain phytoestrogens, literally meaning plant-derived estrogen. The type of phytoestrogen in soy is known as isoflavones. These isoflavones come in different forms and have different effects. Some may function similarly to estrogens in the body, producing a very weak effect compared to the real hormone. And others act as antiestrogens, to reduce the activity of estrogen. Evidence is growing that these phytoestrogens may help with menopausal symptoms, as well as inhibits cancer cell growth.

Soy and its Effect on Fertility
There are not many studies done in this field, however some reports suggest that in countries where soy products are consumed in large amounts, the birth rate is no lower than in countries where soy is not routinely consumed.

A few studies suggest that high levels of soy protein may decrease fertility. According to a report in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition a small number of studies have shown that high levels of soy can increase menstrual cycle length, decrease FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) and decrease LH (leutinizing hormone). But we must note that the high levels of soy generating this effect are equivalent to drinking three 12-ounce glasses of soy milk (60 g soy protein equivalent to 45 mg of isoflavones) for a month. However, normally most people do not consume this much soy.

The American Family Physician magazine stated that up to one-quarter of women with fertility problems may be helped by dietary changes. The researchers state that, since the phytoestrogens in soy products increase the length of the follicular phase and lead to fewer menstrual cycles over a woman’s lifetime, it is possible that soy may decrease fertility in some women. But they also add here that women with multiple risk factors for infertility may be more sensitive to soy than others.

Some studies on various animal species have also indicated that eating high levels of phytoestrogens from soy can have adverse effects on fertility. But there is no current data to suggest that consumption of phytoestrogens at the levels normally encountered in the diet of animals in these tests or humans in general are likely to be harmful.

A more recent review reported in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition sates that reproductive and developmental toxicity studies did not find significant variations in fertility from soy phytoestrogens consumption in healthy couples, indicating that normal intake of soy is basically harmless to your fertility and hence your chances of becoming pregnant or maintaining a pregnancy.

If for any reason you are experiencing fertility problems, it certainly is a good idea to limit soy in your diet to rule out any possibilities of its effect on your fertility. Since it’s the protein portion of soy that contains the phytoestrogens, you should try to avoid tofu, soy milk, tempeh, TVP and soy nuts. Soy sauce does not contain phytoestrogens, and so you can continue using this to flavor foods. As with any food, it is wise not to overconsume. Eating soy in moderation allows you to avoid any potential harm due to overconsumption, as well as leaves more scope for a variety in your diet which helps you are to get all the important nutrients that your body needs.
XOXO,
Carolyn
