If I only do the hCG diet for one month just to jump start things could this have any negative effect in my health short or long term?

If I only do the hCG diet for one month just to jump start things could this have any negative effect in my health short or long term?

HCG diet: I have seen patients have considerable side effects from the HCG oral drops diet. It is not enough nutrients and calories to be healthy.

If I conceived while on the hCG diet, what are my risks?

If I conceived while on the hCG diet, what are my risks?

Likely minimal: The drops which are sold at health food stores are probably a scam with no real active ingredients capable of being absorbed orally. The injections use a tiny dose compared to what is used by specialists to help couples conceive, and is dwarfed by the amount the pregnancy will soon produce. There are no studies, but i suspect the effects would be negligible. If you conceive, the diet is over! ...Read more
