Pregnant with spotting. On HUCOG injection. What are the side effects? - Online Doctor Chats
Hello Doctor...good evening
How can I help you?
I had already had a chat with you in past
My wife is pregnant with 12 weeks' pregnancy
she had spotting on 10th of Feb
now she has been receiving HUCOG 0000 injections twice a week
I want to know about this injection in detail....its use and side-effects, if any
When was the pregnancy diagnosed?
1st week of XXXXXXX
LMP is 1/12/12
Is she on any other medication?
When was she started on HUCOG?
After the spotting, was any investigations done?
She received 1 HUCOG 5000 on 10th Feb...then last wed..
on friday, we changed our doctor...she is giving HUCOG 0000 twice a week since then
she was admitted to hospital on 10th feb for 3 nights
HUCOG is human chorionic gonadotrophin
while another scan done this friday showed the gap to be 8mm
she still sees dark brown spots some times to this date
Within my knowledge, HUCOG is contraindicated in pregnancy.
Why was this injection started?
Was there any termination of pregnancy? What was the doctor's advise?
no...the doc said that you can continue pregnancy with extra care
I would not be the right person to comment on the continuation or discontinuation of HUCOG. As I said, according to my knowledge, it is contraindicated in pregnancy.
Only a Gynaecologist can decide over it.
I think...I'll then ask a specialist over email
I am sorry I could not help you further on this.
or consult another gyane for second opinion
Thanks for your help..Doctor
Please do consult another gynaecologist for a second opinion.
Meantime, you can post a query to a gynaecologist regarding the same.
Thanks for consulting me, and sorry for not being able to help you.
Is there anything else I can help you on?
Have a nice evening!!
Bye for now.
