I was reading a few threads below and I'm curious to know more about soy and TTC?!  Please and thanks!

Soy contains a form of estrogen called isoflavones, you can read more about it at this link: http://www.ivillage.com/trying-conceive-can-soy-adversely-impact-your-fertility/6-n-145449

The studies on its effectiveness with TTC are mixed, if you have too high of a soy intake it can hurt fertility, but others say that it can mimic fertility meds like Clomid. If you are going to try it, I would suggest you do so in moderation like anything other nutrient.
