Thanks for writing to us.
HCG is a hormone which is normally secreated by placenta during the pregnancy. Taking the injections will help in supporting the placental function till 14 weeks of age after which placenta takes over the function. It has no side effects and is safe.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
