A 34-year-old member asked:

What is a partial molar pregnancy?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in

Could write a book: A molar pregnancy is a pre-cancerous condition caused by a genetic defect in the pregnancy tissue, usually caused by two sperm entering a defective empty egg. A partial mole has some fetal tissue present with a placenta made up of at least some 'molar' tissue. A complete mole is completely molar placental tissue. Partial moles are less dangerous and less likely to persist after treatment.

Can a woman become pregnant after having a partial molar pregnancy?

Yes, with caution: It's generally recomended that you wait a year after any kind of molar pregnancy to make sure there are no complications before trying to concieve. Because the early signs of a recurrant molar pregnancy can overlap with a normal one, and because it will cause you to have a positive pregnancy test, you should discuss matters with your dr before trying.

Molar pregnancy: A partial mole develops at either at conception (2 sperm fertilize 1 egg) or immediately after conception (1 sperm enters an egg and duplicates).
A 42-year-old member asked:

Can you tell me about suffering a complete/partial molar pregnancy?

Molar pregnancy: Molar gestions act like cancer in that they can grow and metastasize. You need to have hcg levels done for months after it is treated and I usually advise you to see your OB doctor before you consider trying to conceive again.
