In brief: Ovulation
Hcg is a benign medication for most women.
Ovulation is triggered with its use. There can be rare allergic reactions or burning with injection.

In brief: Depends
It depends if HCG is coming from a current pregnancy or as a medication given to help trigger ovulation in IUI cycles or help with oocyte maturation in ivf cycles.
