hi my name is stephanie i have been taking hcg injections for weight loss with very good results, dieting, and exercising 3-4 x a week. I am 5'9" 193 lbs, trying to reach goal weight of 160 lbs. Are there any serious health risks, specifically dvt or blood clots? I'm nervous because it is a hormone, but also know the risks of being overweight,I'm 29 years old have two children, my youngest child is 2. Alot of the weight gain was a result of my pregnancies.
