I Don't Want to Restart the Soy Debate


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?


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


Yeah, what are you getting at with this?


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