How Long After Implantation Does Hcg Rise

How Long After Implantation Does Hcg Rise

What is HCG?

The hormone that is produced by the placenta after the sperms are implanted in the ovary is known as Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG).

HCG works in two ways. First, it helps in the normal growth of the egg in the ovary. Second, it impels the release of eggs during ovulation.

HCG is quite aptly termed as pregnancy hormone and can be identified in the blood and urine of a pregnant woman a few days after pregnancy. This is why urine and blood tests are done to find out if a woman is pregnant.

HCG drops dosage

Always ensure you know the real strength of the HCG hormone before purchasing it. Some drops have amounts of water, or alcohol added to them, and this dilutes the recommended dosage. Knowing the content of each dosage ensures that the plan works as expected. You don’t want to start the plan, only for you to get the wrong results.

Before using HCG

You should not use this medication if you have ever had an allergic reaction to HCG, or if you have:

  • early puberty (also called precocious puberty); or
  • a hormone-related cancer (such as prostate cancer).

Before receiving HCG tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs or if you have:

  • a thyroid or adrenal gland disorder;
  • an ovarian cyst;
  • premature puberty;

Side Effects of HCG in Pregnancy

  • The use of HCG injection during early pregnancy has a number of side effects that must not be ignored. It also tends to aggravate some of the pregnancy symptoms like queasiness, pain and sensitivity of breasts, etc. Here are few serious side effects of HCG injections that must be considered and consulted thoroughly with your gynaecologist before taking the shot.
  • HCG shot makes the body to retain fluid; as a result of which, you may gain weight. Oedema or inflammation has also been observed in many cases. Gaining a little weight is normal and there is nothing to worry about. But if the weight gain is abrupt then it is advisable to consult the doctor.
  • Another significant change that may occur in the body after the HCG shot is the soreness and swelling of the breast. In some women, the breast becomes painful and starts feeling a little tender. It has been observed that once the body starts getting adjusted to the HCG shots, these symptoms tend to fade away. If the problem persists, then you must consult your doctor.
  • Depression is one of the other side effects of HCG shots. It could cause irritation, hopelessness and anger all the time. This is because any hormonal change in the body causes depression and mood swings. This may again not last for too long but if it does, you may have to see your physician.
  • HCG shot may also result in fatigue, headache, stomach pain and soreness at the site of the injection.
