Hi there ~

HCG drops need to be monitored if you are taking them on a regular basis as they can change your hormone patterns. I hope you can tolerate these changes. I would also recommend that you do these things under strict medical supervision since you also have hypothyroidism, high blood pressure and have hyper coagulability, and are taking medications for the same. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
