Possibly: Research is conflicting but there is evidence that large amounts of soy can contribute to infertility, so anyone having fertility problems should consider reducing soy intake- see http://www.aliveholistichealth.ca/soy/tabid/94/Default.aspx Excess soy can also suppress thyroid function & low thyroid can cause fertility problems. You might be hypothyroid despite normal TSH-see http://bit.ly/1cJnyBx
