Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

If you understand the procedure and have been taught how to inject HCG injections, then yes you can. However, you should have a current prescription. Please do not inject based on a previous prescription for a similar situation. If you are now spotting, please immediately consult your healthcare provider for further guidance.
