Molar Pregnancy

Molar pregnancy is when an abnormally formed non-viable fertilized egg grows in the uterus and fails to come to term. An ultrasound of a complete molar pregnancy — which can be detected as early as eight or nine weeks of pregnancy — may show: No embryo or fetus. No amniotic fluid. A thick cystic placenta nearly filling the uterus.

It is highly advised to get the molar pregnancy removed as soon as possible after diagnosis, in order to avoid the risks of getting choriocarcinoma.

  • Treatment
  • A molar pregnancy can't continue as a normal viable pregnancy. To prevent complications, the abnormal placental tissue must be removed. Treatment usually consists of one or more of the following steps: 1-Dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure to remove molar tissue from your uterus. 2-Hysterectomy. 3-HCG monitoring. After the molar tissue is removed, your doctor will repeat measurements of your HCG level until it returns to normal. If you continue to have HCG in your blood, you may need additional treatment.
  • Recommended specialist
  • If you have Molar Pregnancy, then a visit to an obstetrician-gynecologist is highly recommended.
