Won't help: Hcg and B12 do not help weight loss. B12 is safe, can't guarantee safety of HCG in you as it depends upon too many factors. Don't know if you're getting your HCG legally or not, but it's probably very expensive waste of money.

No: The HCG does not affect your fertility at the recommended doses for the diet, 125 iu. And you should be on the original protocol which is 500 calories for it to be effective. Too many phsyicians have modified the diet and dose and still claim the results will be the same. They won't! the weight loss will lead to fertility as it changes the estrogen to Progesterone balance.
