Amy I'm sorry af found you. I've looked into soy too & I know you can buy it on it's own. Maybe try some other drug stores or even grocery stores or Walmart?

Amy Lynn from our last thread is trying si's this cycle too. Maybe she can pipe in with more info?

Either way, good luck hon! I'm rooting for you :)

I took Soy Iso for 3 months with no luck....I bought mine at walmart for like 6 bucks or so. it was just straight soy iso. what I have read is that you are supposed to take double the amount you would take of clomid. so if you want to start out at 100mg of clomid you would take 200 of soy. There are certin days you should take it on and only 5 days at a time. days 2-6, 3-7, or 5-9. take it at night to help stay away from the side affects. I myself didnt have any side affects, my overies were tender during the days I took the soy but that was it. Good Luck I hope it works for you and you get your BFp soon
