What is the HCG shot?

HCG: The hormone produced by the placenta. This is the hormone pregnancy tests look for.

There are doctors around that will give the HCG shot along with diet pills to help weight loss. The shot seems to speed up the metabolism.

Sorry, that  explanation of HCG may have been confusing.
I found this on a site and it explains better. HCG doesn't seem to make you more fertile, it just helps to nourish the egg.
I hope this helps .
The hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (better known as hCG) is produced during pregnancy. It is made by cells that form the placenta, which nourishes the egg after it has been fertilized and becomes attached to the uterine wall.
