Thanks for posting the query.

After going through your history, I would suggest the following:

1. Hcg being a hormonal preparation should be taken under prescription or under supervision of a Registered Medical Practitioner.

2. It is commonly used in weight reduction.

3. Passing of blood in stool after ingestion of hcg is not a known side effect. I therefore suggest you to stop the hcg ingestion currently and visit a gastroenterologist or a surgeon to evaluate the cause of blood in the stools.
Local examination, stool and blood tests are required. Remember hcg does cause constipation as its side effect.

I hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no follow up queries. I will be glad to answer any follow up queries.

Wish you good health.

Take care.
