What dosage of soy?

Postby wistfulgirl » Mon Jul 20, 2009 5:18 am

I need some help deciding what dosage of soy I should take. I just finished my 4th round of Clomid (all BFN) and I wanted to try something different before we move onto an IUI. I was on 100mg Clomid the first 3 cycles and 150mg the 4th cycle. So what dosage of soy would you suggest?

I'm actually about to start my first cycle of soy this month after AF gets here so I'm not much help! :oops: I'm only going to be taking 40-80 mg to start out with. I'm terrified to start out on a high dose because of the women get some crazy cycles from it!

I'm sure the 160 mg dose would be fine! Start out with that or maybe a little lower and see how that goes. I would hate for you to have an extremely long cycle and get nothing out of it! But again, I'm no expert. :wink:

Good luck hun! :D

Thanks Lindsay! I decided to go with 160mg. I know that I don't O on my own. It took 100mg Clomid for me to O and then I only got 1 follie (whereas most women on that high a dosage get several). 150mg Clomid wasn't much different, so maybe this will work. I hope so! I took my first dose of soy last night, so I'm hoping I O in some sort of reasonable time. Even with the high Clomid doses, it was CD20 or later for 3 of my 4 cycles before I O'd. I really hope I get better results with soy.

Let me know when/if you start soy (still secretly hoping you get a late BFP!) and we can be cycle buddies! GL!

I took 200 the first couple months and that seemed to make me O and then I went down to 150 and O'd later, but I did conceive that month. BABY DUST!:)
