Hello ;
welcome to HalthcareMagic
HCG injections are used in female infertility;delayed puberty;in males to increase sperm count also.The common adverse effect seen in few females are:
-headache;tiredness;mood changes;pain at injection site;paripheral oedema;depression but no low back pain or pain in kidney .
So the pain in low back may be due to some other reasons for which please consult your doctor and get treated and you should be fine.
