What causes molar pregnancies?

Abnormal pregnancy: Molar pregnancies are when the placenta overgrows and takes over. There may or may not be a fetus or embryo present. They are caused by abnormal genetics. Normally the sperm contributes half the genetic material. If the sperm contributes most or all of it, a molar pregnancy occurs.

No: Nuvaring is a birth control method and molar pregnancy is a abnormal pregnancy, you would not be at increased risk of a molar pregnancy because of using a contraceptive.

Mmm? Let's C.: If you have had a molar pregnancy, the use of Methotrexate is for what condition. Obviously a molar pregnacy is virtually non-viable and occurs in 1/1000 pregnancies. If you are on methotrexate, you cannot get prenant, because mtx is an abortifacient. Mtx metabolites stay in your sytem for up to 2 & 1/2 months. It should not cause complications, if you are justified in taking it.Do nnot try!
