Hi!
For any medical related information, you can look up yellow pages or ask your nearest pharmacist.
HCG is a prescription drug to be taken under supervision of a licensed practitioner.  It is one of the methods of treating obesity but it should never be used as the prime method of weight loss. The main function of the HCG is to maintain the progesterone level during pregnancy. However it is being used along with low carbohydrate organic diet of only fruits and vegetables (again only those low on sugar) to cause massive weight loss and hence is being abused rampantly. HCG acts by triggering the hypothalamus gland to use stored fat in the body for energy. It is not recommended for women with PCOS. The HCG shots can result in Ovarian Hyper-stimulation Syndrome (OHSS), which is a serious medical condition which can complicate PCOS symptoms. HCG shots are also not recommended for those having thyroid disorders, adrenal gland problems, cancer, known heart disease, high cholesterol and high blood pressure, epilepsy, kidney disease, asthma, migraines and irregular uterine bleeding. You should ideally undergo a comprehensive investigation to know the condition of your heart, kidney, adrenals etc before HCG shots are given. You must never take HCG shots without a doctor's prescription. Hope this helps. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
