What does soy do to Luteal Phase?<br><br>
The little reading I did on it seems to indicate soy will lengthen <i>follicular</i> phase (the time before O, right?). But is that all it does? Does it affect LP at all?<br><br>
TIA for any info!!

Soy is estrogen based as I understand it the dominant hormone for the follicular or preO phase is estrogen. Post O, the luteal phase is progesterone dominant.<br><br>
I think soy is used to jump start O, like clomid, but I don't think it affects the luteal phase. For that you need progesterone.
