    Soy Protein is never a good idea unless you have no alternatives. Plenty of options out there for a good protein whether it be whey concentrate, isolate, or a protein blend. Protean and Isotean are some good options for you. So is XF UP or Pronom 23. LOTS of options that won't make you lactate.

    Not a problem. Like lane suggested, always avoid soy if possible, but it'll work if it's all you have or all you can afford. I used it for several years before I knew any better, mix-ability sux.

    I did extensive reading on it and here is the answer. Soy acts as estrogen because it binds to the receptors because of the isoflavins. But soy protein does not because most soy protein is soy lecithin and there are no to extremely small amounts of isoflavins in soy lecithin. So no it can't not effect estrogen levels and bond to the receptors.

    look into iForces Mass Gains to replace your current gainer..
    its hands down the best gainer going atm.
    its whey based and uses oats and quinoa for carbs sources
