How is a molar pregnancy diagnosed?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Labs & Ultrasound: The blood work will show abnormally high levels of HCG and on ultrasound there will be what is refered to as a 'snow storm" pattern with no identifiable fetus if it is a molar pregnancy. Usually the woman will also bleed, and sometimes the clots are charecteristic, but that's not enough to make the diagnosis by itself.
