Avoid topic if you are a man
Soybeans are the second-largest US crop after corn, covering about a quarter of American farmland. We grow more soybeans than any other country except Brazil. According to the US Department of Agriculture, more than 90 percent of the soybeans churned out on US farms each year are genetically engineered to withstand herbicides, nearly all of them involving one called Roundup. Organic production, by contrast, is marginal—it accounts for less than 1 percent of total American acreage devoted to soy. (The remaining 9 percent or so of soybeans are conventionally grown, but not genetically modified.)

I also read where Japanese women who eat a lot of tofu (containing estrogens from soy milk) didn't experience hot flashes as much, but to me, this is another form of hormonal replacement by way of food intake.

I've been on anti-inflammatories for a few months, and I kind of wonder if that plays into it.
If you're taking these for arthritis or general inflammation, stop eating grains and other carbs. Go down to 20-30 carbs a day (from veggies - no fruit). Eat a little protein - just what you need (protein calculator). And then fill in with healthy fats like coconut oil, REAL olive oil, avocado, eggs and grass fed butter. My pain DISAPPEARED when I did that.

Eh, I'm a guy but I take fish oil and evening primrose oil. It seems to help me out hormonally, but I'm a completely different creature, so no clue. Guess that's all I can contribute.
