No: There must be union of a sperm and an egg to have a molar pregnancy. The molar pregnancy is an abnormality of the developing placenta. If a woman had artificial insemination and became pregnant and developed a molar pregnancy, she could still be a virgin. But there is no molar pregnancy without a pregnancy.
Dr. John Geisler

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 complete mole forms similarly but with an empty egg. So sex has to occur.

Mole: Up to a year is common, but please, please - talk 1-on-1 with your doctor. The standard of care does change, and the answer can also depend on the specifics of the treatment course.
