Hi mukta
There is no proven teratogenic side effect of HCG/progesterone in pregnancy,means,these injections don't harm foetus,but,you may have nausea,bloating sensation,water retention,weight gain.These injections are given weekly upto12 weeks of gestation,means,8or9 injections will be required.

Hi Mukta
There are no proven side effects of HCG/progesterone in pregnancy.These are given to support pregnancy till placenta completely overtakes the function of corpus luteum means upto 12 weeks of pregnancy.
Most of the Doctors prescribe weekly injections,means,you would have to take 7or8 injections.
Thank You
