Pregnant. Side effects of HUCOG injections on baby?

I am from India and this question is for my pregnant wife. She is working and her day is quite exhaustive in terms of travelling since office is far from our home and need to travel by bus. She is 18 weeks pregnant and till date doctor has given her 14 injections of HUCOG and advised to take 2 more. So, my question here is - does this injection have side effects on my wife and baby? I am really concerned about it. When my wife asked this question to our doctor, she said you ll have to take these injections for 5 months of your pregnany. So, could you please advise me on this? Thanks,

Thanks for writing to us.
Injection Hucog contyains a natural hormone which is normally present in our body during pregnancy. The supplementation of thios hormone from outside will not affect the baby at all. Usually these injections are not required after 14 weeks of pregnancy.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

hi. I was on the depo shot for about a year and last year I stop taking it. My period is just now deciding to get back into the groove of things. My fiancé and I are looking to try for a baby and we have been trying for a while. I am not pregnant yet. My question is, is there something going on the main reason im not pregnant yet.? Or does ita take a while to start ovulating after your period has started? I don t know when I ovulate because my periods just started back up and sometimes they come early or late.

My daughter in Law is Sterile. Wanted to have a baby & had an In vitro Fertilization with my son sperm & got Pregnant. Dr. gave her Injectable Hormones all throughout her pregnancy. I need to know the side effects of that Treatment because she has become Irritable & Materially Obsess to the Point that her marriage is now destroyed ! Baby is only 3 Months Old. She refuses to admit that her behavior is improper & that she needs help.
