A molar pregnancy happens when the tissue encompassing a fertilized egg grows abnormally. A scope of symptoms may show up by the fourth month of pregnancy, however, regularly molar pregnancy is found when a miscarriage happens. Treatment includes dilatation and curettage (D&C) following the miscarriage to expel molar tissue in the uterus that, if not evacuated, has a danger of forming into tumor.

A molar pregnancy is otherwise called a hydatidiform mole. The tissue encompassing the fertilized egg, which would regularly form into the placenta, shapes into a grapelike mass inside the uterus.


There are two types of molar pregnancy:

Partial molar pregnancy happens when both the placenta and fertilized egg develop abnormally.

Complete molar pregnancy means that there is an abnormal placenta but no embryo.



The symptoms of a molar pregnancy may include the following:

  • Darkish brown to pink-red vaginal bleeding within the first trimester
  • Severe nausea and vomiting
  • Grape-like material coming out of the vagina

  • Transvaginal ultrasound, which can show that there is no embryo or fetus, a very small fetus, low to no amniotic fluid, ovarian cysts or a thick and cystic placenta.
  • Complete blood count
