Thanks for posting your query.
Hcg and Progesterone(Endogest- natural micronised progesterone) are both natural hormones which are secreted by placenta during the pregnancy. These help in preparing the uterine muscle for the nourishment of baby.
You have been prescribed right medications and these will help in supplementing the function of placenta.
Please do not worry. Since these are natural hormones present in our body, these medicines are well tolerated and show minimal side effects. You can continue with these medicines as prescribed by your gynecologist.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
