    True or False - A woman is more likely to get pregnant while on the HCG Diet? A lot of women will tell you that this is true. But are they right? Well, let's talk about this for a minute...

    First of all, why would anyone think this is true?

    It's probably because the HCG Hormone is used for fertility. I'm sure that a lot of you already knew this, but just in case you didn't, here is a little info on the topic...

    HCG For Fertility

    Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone secreted early in pregnancy by specialized cells called trophoblasts and later by the placenta. It helps maintain high levels of progesterone which is critical for the success of the pregnancy.

    Usually, HCG fertility injections are given in the thigh or buttock muscles. Of coarse this is not too different from using HCG Injections for weight loss.

    And this brings us to the million dollar question...

    Does Doing The HCG Diet Increase Your Chances Of Becoming Pregnant? 

    Because HCG is used for fertility purposes, many people think that if they use it for dieting, it will increase their likelihood of becoming pregnant.

    But will it?

    It's possible. However, when you are using HCG for fertility, your dosage will be double the amount of that when you are using the HCG for Weight Loss. This means that it won't increase your fertility a great deal. It's more likely that it increases just a little.

    But while your chances of getting pregnant are much smaller on the HCG Diet than it is when you are using HCG for fertility, you should still take precautionary measures if a baby is not your intention.

    Because your chances of getting pregnant on the HCG Diet, are probably greater than when you are not using the diet.

    The HCG Hormone And Pregnancy Test

    It is a little known fact that if you take a pregnancy test while using the HCG Hormone for weight loss, or even for fertility, it will read positive when in fact you are not pregnant. This can happen for up to 2 weeks after you stop taking the HCG. So be sure to take this into account if you do take a pregnancy test within that time frame.

    So are you more fertile while you are using the HCG Diet?

    Yes... But you're probably not going to become as fertile as one might think. Still, you should keep this in mind while using the diet. Especially if you are not ready to get pregnant. And if you are using the HCG Diet to lose weight, that is probably the last thing that you want.
