I am confused about soy. When I first started going to my RE they said that I should stop eating soy because it was bad to eat while ttc. I’ve found articles that say soy proteins do something with estrogen levels and can make it harder for fertilized eggs to implant and grow. However, I also keep hearing on message boards all over the place people using soy isoflavnones through out their cycle and they attribute that to helping them get pregnant. I did some research and found this article that discusses it a bit more in depth. Is it just me or does the first article go against everything the second one says? How do you know what soy product you want to eat is ok? I am a big fan of Morning St.ar Fa.rms products which are all soy protein products. I have drastically cut most of their products out of my diet except for when I know a cycle is a bust, but I’m starting to miss them. I also get nervous sometimes eating them (how much is in moderation and when should I stop eating them in my cycle) and wonder how it is different from all those people popping soy isofavnones in a pill form. Anyone know? Maybe it has something to do with eastern versus western medicine. I just want to eat my yummy teriyaki veg.gie cakes in the freezer.
In good news – today I took my last bc pill. yea for that. Unfortunately, I’m having a case of pms today. I’m grumping at the hubby a lot today. I feel bad about it, but can’t help it. Hopefully that will pass soon.
