u should know different between tablet and injection.
some tab u have to take daily.
in injection ,their is prick means breakage of skin.
in pregnancy u cant afford to take much injection ,it may harm ur child also.
chance of some major disease transmission is there.
so bring out any thought of taking injection instead of tab.
hope u understand what i want to tell u

Hi, The follicle size was 24mm in the right ovary on day 13; the doctor had given me HCG injection on the same day and on day 14th – it was ruptured. On day 14th, the doctor has advised duphaston tablet for 10 days. I would like to know why the tablet is prescribed and what are the chances of pregnancy.
