I usually post over on the queer parenting part of the board but I figured I might get more help over here, so here goes.

 

Here's a little back story... DW and I have been planning to ttc sometime between now and next Spring and the possibility of now came up last night and now I'm freaking out and doing tons of research.

We've decided to attempt the known donor route and see where that takes us.  Our first choice was for DW's brother to be our donor so our child would be a part of both of us. When her cousin found out he was somewhat hurt and asked that he be considered second.  Now her cousin has 2 kids (brother has none) and could probably get a girl pregnant from across the room, he's just that fertile. 

 

DW's brother will be having surgery at the end of the month and we're going up right before to visit.  I checked my calendar and it's right before my fertile time and everything just seems to perfect.  I mentioned it to DW and I believe she is going to call her cousin to see if he'd be willing to be our donor still and want to do it while we are in town (we live 9hrs away). 

 

So, now on to my question.... the day we are planning to return home is my first fertile day according to my period tracker (I suck at temping).  I read that you can use soy isoflavones to induce ovulation.  Has anyone tried this?  Or anything else? 

I know the odds of getting pregnant my first try is rare but everything else just seems to be perfect and I would hate to not try.

 

Any and all advice on ttc, herbs, at home insem would be greatly appreciated!

If DW's cousin gives us an okay for the insem at the end of the month I will use it this coming cycle.  From what I've read, to induce ovulation without jepordizing the development of the egg, it should be taken on cd 3-8. That will put me starting it on the 24th.  I read that the suggested amount is 80mg for 5 days.  What have you read?

I know it says to doulbe the dose of what you would take for clomid I.e 50mg of clomid 100mg of soy. I have read quite a few success stories. I read the same about to take iton the third day of your cycle. Are her periods irregular? It says to do it only periods are irregular. I'm going to do it if I'm not pregnant this cycle!

if your periods are regular and you are ovulating fine then I wouldn't take soy isoflavones, you could theoretically end up messing up your cycle (if it ain't broke, don't fix it!) if you're not ovulating or have very long cycles then it may be worth a try to regulate things but if you're just looking to regulate your cycle why not try vitex and vitamin b6 first? 

 

Good luck

jcoubal - started taking vitex (400mg per day, though I think people can take up 800mg) and 50mg vitamin b6 about 5 weeks ago. I'm still waiting to get my AF back after having my dd in Nov '09 so I've been taking it to try and kick start my cycle. I think ordinarily you take vitex up until ovulation.

I take a soy protein powder every morning for breakfast (just for the morning protein). I was thinking of switching to another product that is veggie based and has no soy and more vitamins, but should I stick with the soy if I'm TTC?

There are quite few studies indicating that soy may be linked to fertility issues.  I personally wouldn't take soy daily if TTC.  However, soy isoflavones are sort of Clomid's "natural" cousin (being that they are an anti-estrogen).  Both are known as SERMs (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators). It works by fooling your brain into thinking its estrogen levels are low. This causes your body to release more FSH & LH which helps stimulate follicle production.  Soy Iso is taken like Clomid -- for five days ONLY at the beginning of your cycle (usually CD 3-7 or 5-9, but never after CD 10).

Thanks, but I'm still confused. Cycle days would be the days you're on your menstrual cycle, right (or days you go bicycling? smile.gif) 

"for five days ONLY at the beginning of your cycle (usually CD 3-7 or 5-9, but never after CD 10)." 

So that would imply that you have a 9 to 10 day period, which seems unlikely.  (Further complicating this question for me, my last two menstrual periods have only been 2 days long.)

Can't I edit posts anymore?  Anyway... so cycle refers to the entire 28-or-whatever-yours-is days, than When is day 1? The first day of menstruation?  And again what if day 3 of your period your period is already over?

Thank you!  We pronounce it Ayslinn...like the ai sound in "daisy."  Thank you for the compliment! joy.gif

 

Gendwitha - Cycle Days aren't just the days when you're menstruating, but the number of days between the beginning of your period and the beginning of your next period.  Day One is the first day of red flow -- so if you spot for a day or two before your period starts, you wouldn't count it as CD 1 until you had red flow.

 

You don't have to be menstruating to take Soy Isoflavones...you just have to take them at the beginning of your cycle.  So, whether your period lasts for 2 days or 7 doesn't matter...as the effect of SI isn't linked to the the menstruation, but the beginning of the follicular phase (the days leading up the ovulation, when the follicles [eggs] are maturing).  Here is a link to an article regarding Soy Isoflavones and TTC: http://fertility-challenged.blogspot.com/2008/07/soy-isoflavones-natural-clomid.html  I hope this helps!! orngbiggrin.gif

I had a lot of ovary/ovulation pain this cycle -- I definitely think it's a good sign!!

 

And I love your girls' names!  We thought about Ashlynn for DD, as well.  :)

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,

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

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?

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
