I Don't Want to Restart the Soy Debate


#1

but my sister got these prescription pills from her doctor because she is just a bit on the burly side and does not menstruate. the pills are medroxy-progesterone and i read on its own pamphlet that if the pills come from canada they may have a soybean source. this is not some herbal treatment, these pills worked.
is this just some pharmaceutical thing that i know nothing about and should just be quiet?


#2

try 'em for yourself. if you start to menstruate then we know they are something you should just keep quiet about


#3

Yeah, what are you getting at with this?


#4

If the pills are steroids (i.e. medroxy-progesterone), that kinda trumps any phyto-estrogenic effect their soy heritage can have.


#5

Yes.
