Abnormal pregnancy: A molar pregnancy is an abnormal pregnancy occurring when an fertilized egg receives too much chromosomal material from the sperm. They can cause heavy vaginal bleeding and require a D&C to remove the abnormal tissue. It is characterized as a complete or partial mole based on the number of chromosomes. Pregnancy hormones will be monitored post-operatively until they return to normal.
