While researching with professor and doctor Google about clo.mid with a view to trying it next month or the month after I kept coming across articles and forum posts about "nature's clo.mid" or soy isoflavones and how wonderful they were and how many positive pregnancy tests....... hmmmm.
Soy isoflavones are purported to do a very similar job to clo.mid so I thought as this month is obviously going to be a bust too, especially with all the stress I've been buried under, I would experiment on myself and see if they messed up my cycle completely.
Feeling as if I was tempting fate I bought a menopause multi-vitamin which came with with a separate herbal supplement of soy isoflavones which was on special offer at a local pharmacy (I'm nothing if not cheap). I took out 5 pills and then carefully put the menopause vitamins away for a very rainy day.
I took 120mg of isoflavones (100mg from the herbal and 20mg from the multivit) on cd4-8 and I ovulated early, day 11 I believe, with lots of sharp, crampy ovulation pain. I couldn't possibly say if this is what helped us get pregnant but I thought I'd put it out there in case anyone might be interested.
