First of all, you have to think about a treatment with minimal side effects. If it is a natural one, go for it. Soy, for example, can really help you in fulfilling your dream of becoming a mother.

Are you wondering how it works?

Just like Clomid, it seems that soy isoflavones trick the body to produce more estrogen and thus increase your chances to ovulate.

Where to buy and dosage

Buy good quality, well research supplements based on soy isoflavones. You may find them marketed as aids to relieve menopause symptoms. Such supplements can easily be found in grocery stores and pharmacies in the form of 40mg pills. The recommended dose is 80 mg every day, so you will most probably have to take 2 pills a day (depending on the supplement).

When to take the supplement

For the supplement to take effect, it must be taken at just the right time – that is at the beginning of your menstrual cycle (three to five days after the first day of menstruation). Soy isoflavones should be taken at the same hour every day (the time of day doesn’t matter, though). For the best results, take them during a meal.

Possible risks

You should not take this kind of supplement more than five days in a row every month. If you exceed this limit, it will actually have negative effects on your ovulation, leading to imbalances in your natural cycle. Also, soy may be dangerous in combination with some medicines, such as antibiotics, so be careful at what you take.

Chart your ovulation

Determine your fertility by taking your basal body temperature. If you don’t ovulate, you can increase the dosage a little. However, it is recommended to ask for a doctor’s advice before doing this.

So, now you know how to use soy to induce ovulation. Do not be afraid to try this natural treatment, because it will not be dangerous for your health as long as you follow the instructions that come with the supplement of your choice.
