Soy Isoflavones? - Page 2

post #21 of 30

Thanks Kitten!!

I am CD 11 and my OPK's are getting darker already, so a day or 2 and I should be Oing!! A few days early for me, but that was not my intent for taking the soy!!  So that would give me day 13-14 as O date,

Woohoo!  My O date was pushed up by a few days as well this cycle!  It was nice to not still be wondering at CD 20.  Heh. :P

Well just as I thought todays OPK was positive, another day or so and ovulation will be over too!! I have a timing question for you guys...

 

We dtd yesterday afternoon, and plan to do it again tomorrow morning and then saturday evening, will I be ok on timing if we skip tonight?

It seems that most people using OPKs do it every-other-day until they get their positive, and then they do it every day for the next three days.  If you guys don't want to DTD tonight, I think you'd be fine with tomorrow AM, Saturday, and then maybe Sunday for good measure.  Have you been using OPKs for long?  Do you temp or track CM at all?  Just wondering if you know how soon after your positive OPK you usually ovulate.  :)

I ovulate fairly rapidly after my positive OPK. I have been charting, temping and checking CM for years, used natural family planning with all of my 8 children. My cervix was high soft open yesterday and today.. After my positive OPK the temp went down so I ovulated today, my temp will rise tomorrow given my last 3 months of charting history.. I did an IUI today so I should be covered.. Thanks for the reply! 

 

I have never had much of EWCM, that started yesterday evening right before my + OPK! and today it was watery, somewhat stretchy and I had pretty significant O pains!

Sounds like you've got everything covered!!  I don't usually get much EWCM, either, but I did this cycle!  Keeping my fingers crossed for you!!  And eight kids?  Wow...I'm impressed!  thumb.gif

I'm sorry to post on your thread, just wanted to make sure I was taking the right dose. 



Hi amommyTTC, I'm new to this site, and was wondering the same thing.  I'm taking SI that has the same amounts.  I assumed that it was only 40mg so I'm taking 3 a day.  I'm on the 4th day now.  Sorry for butting in shy.gif I was just curious if you found an answer?  Thanks peace.gif

Thank you all for this awesome thread! I was prescribed chlomid, but was hesitant to take the meds. I'll try SI next cycle, since I'm already at CD10.

 

Do you take Mucinex or anything else while taking the SI?

post #29 of 30

I decided to give SI a go to see if it could kick my body back into ovulating (still waiting for my 1st PPAF). I don't have a cycle day as such but it's 12 days since I first took SI. I got what I thought was a positive OV test a couple of days ago (let's call it CD9) but no more positives since and no temp rise, my temp has actually really fallen from what it was last week but I guess the weather here was a lot warmer last week so maybe that's why? 

I have tonnes of EWCM today though so I'm hoping that's a good sign. it's far more of it than I've had in a very, very long time. 

 

Good luck to everyone else

Sorry I have not been back here, Soy did work for me that cycle, but it ended in a chemical pregnancy, for unrelated issues.. Im back though, just waiting for AF
