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.
Thanks

Hello. I am on 7th week of hCG diet ( injections ). I have lost 28.9 pounds. Today is the first day I have felt fatigued and a bit nauseated. When I took a nap, I felt these sharp, intense pains in my lower back on the left side. It did not last very long, but then got the pain a couple of more times. My first thought is that it might be my kidney . What do you think?
