Thanks for writing to health care magic.

There are several causes for a low birth weight baby.

First we should know if the baby is born term or preterm. (What I mean to say is after completion of 37 weeks of gestational age or before that)

A preterm born before completion of 37 weeks of gestational age is normally low birth weight.
A term baby can also be low birth weight because of several reasons.
These include nutritional status of the mother, other problems with the mother like anemia, etc etc.

The injections and PCOD may not be responsible for low birth weight

Hope this helps.
Take care
