Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a naturally occurring hormone that is found in pregnant women. It is often used to detect pregnancy. Some women may not make enough HCG on their own, which can result in a miscarriage. In this case, a synthetic HCG injection must take place to protect the pregnancy. Whether natural or injected, the HCG hormone can cause side effects for any pregnant women, and is often the culprit for most adverse pregnancy symptoms, including some that are serious.


Multiple Pregnancy : Sometimes HCG is used to stimulate ovaries and egg production when a woman is having trouble getting pregnant In this case, the ovaries can become overstimulated, resulting in the release of more than one egg, and, subsequently, the potential for more than one baby. While a multiple pregnancy is exciting, it can also lead to a higher risk pregnancy and birth defects if not cared for properly.


Acne : Some women find that while pregnant, they miss out on that pregnant "glow" that everyone seems to talk about it. Acne is a side effect of HCG, as it stimulates hormones that can aggravate acne. Some of the HCG symptoms are much like those of PMS, and according to pregnancy website BabyZone.com, those that are prone to PMS symptoms like acne are most likely to see the same symptoms with HCG.


Mood Swings : Besides the fact that you are hot, tired, nauseous and cranky from the pregnancy on its own, HCG can cause you to suffer from mood swings. according to the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC) of the University of New South Wales. You may notice that you feel elated and happy one moment, and angry the next, and then sad. This roller coaster usually only lasts for the first trimester, after which your HCG levels will regulate and you'll be able to cope better.


Edema : HCG may cause you to retain more water in your body, resulting in swelling known as edema. This swelling is most prevalent in the face, wrists and ankles and may cause mild to moderate discomfort. Talk to your doctor about taking a diuretic to help flush out some of the retained water in your body to give you some relief.


Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome : Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome, or OHSS is a syndrome that occurs when the HCG in your body overstimulates your ovaries, resulting in a myriad of symptoms like pelvic pain, stomach pain and swelling, shortness of breath, nausea and a difficulty or lessening of urinating. This is a serious condition. If you are on HCG and have these symptoms, you should see your doctor immediately.

Thanks for your reply, also, please tell me if HCG injections can harm the baby? (I am on this injection since I had spotting and internal bleeding since 5 weeks of pregnancy, now everything has stopped.)
