Are hCG and USG shots safe during pregnancy?
You can take hCG safely
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
HCG is secreted by the pregnancy tissues which are implanted in the uterus. So, if one has choriodecidual separation, the support to the fetus is weakened by the uterus.
To maintain the pregnancy, hCG injections are given in such cases to support the pregnancy.Though mentioned as cat X drug, it is not found to cause any birth defect in fetus till now, and is routinely given by the obstetricians in cases of threatened abortion and choriodecidual separation.
There is nothing to worry in taking them.
First trimester abortion are mostly due to chromosomal anomalies, however if the choriodecidual separation is there, chances of chromosomal anomalies are less.
Choriodecidual separation is itself the cause of bleeding in early pregnancy.
Rest, hCG injections, and progesterone support can help you overcome this situation.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

exact percentage not known
Hi dear, chances of chromosomal anomalies in subchorionic haemorrhage is low, however exact percentage is not quoted.
Generally subchorionic haemorrhage is treated by medications, that is why your doctor has advised you the medication.
I suggest you to wait and watch.
