Well I went out and bought Soy but the pills I bought also have cranberry in them 400mg worth. I have read on a few sites (after buying and taking 1st dose) that the cranberry can be really bad for you while TTC because it thins the blood and makes implantation difficult. Is this right? Is it really that bad?

Well it came back fine, just it might dry you up down there some.  But it came up alot that is changes your cervical fluid more acidic so boy sperm will die off and girl sperm will last longer in that enviroment.

Yikes.....glad you posted this, I wouldn't have known.  I was trying to change my PH as I get a lot of YI and BV before and after AF so I've been taking extra Vitamin C and drinking a glass of pure fresh squeezed Cranberry juice at night before bed.  I managed to make it through an AF without any signs of an infection so I really hope it's working....didn't know it did all that other stuff though so thanks for posting.  I really don't care if I have a boy or a girl, but I'll be on the lookout for dried up CF and/or use more Preseed.

Well, I've been drinking the fresh pressed Cranberry juice for a couple of weeks now and I haven't seen even a slight decrease in CF....but then I've never had a problem in that area, so maybe that's just me.  I do still have my Preseed though, for those times when my own might not be as fertile as it should be.

Yikes. I have been taking cranberry for a while now, and never even thought about the acidity!!!  We are TTC a boy, so assuming this month gets us nowhere, I had better stop taking it. I am so glad I read this!!
