Soy side effects?

Hello. I've transitioned from the pre-op board, to the post op board and now just discovered this board about managing menopause! (Although I am still dealing with multiple infections from surgery ). I started with hot flashes, night sweats and insomnia about 3 weeks after surgery. I started a supplement with black cohash, soy and melatonin. It totally alleviated my symptoms. Unfortunately, about a week after starting the supplements (one in the morning, one at night) I started having diarrhea 7 to 8 times a day. I was also diagnosed with c diff, but as soon as I stopped taking the supplements, the diarrhea went away. Has anyone else experienced this side effect from soy? Does anyone know what the best dosage is? I just bought a different supplement that has about half the amount of soy (55mg). Can't do hrt b/c of cancer risk.

Thanks all.

Re: Soy side effects?

I drink soy milk and have not had this side effect. You might try getting your soy naturally and not from a supplement since every bottle is not regulated, and we don't know how much we are getting in any given bottle. Supplements and herbs are not FDA regulated so whatever is in them we are taking a chance on how much or little, quality, etc.
There are some supplements like Estroven, Remefimen, that has been around on the shelves for some time and has been suggested by some physicians to try.

Hope you find something that works for you.
