Thanks for writing to us.
By 18 weeks, placenta starts secreting HCG on its own and there is no need of any external supplementation. The size of placenta is not the matter. The main problem is its position which is in the lower segment of the uterus. You should avoid long distance travels .
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
