Fertigyn is chorionic gonadotrophin.It is usually given to women who are pregnant and have suffered previous miscarriages and those who have spotting in early pregnancy.It halps to maintain the pregnancy in its early stage.It is also given in women with P.C.O.D who usually suffer abortions in the first three months of pregnancy.In your case it is being given as no corpus luteum was seen in your U.S.S.The corpus luteum maintains the pregnancy in its first stage until the placenta can be formed and the absence of a corpus luteum can lead to miscarriage if Fertigyn is not given.Usually the injection is advised upto the 12 th week of pregnancy.If you take the injection as advised I dont see any problem in your pregnancy
