15 Minutes: A molar pregnancy is usually treated by surgically removing the pregnancy from the uterus while you are asleep. It is usually a short 15-20 minute procedure. The cervix is dilated and the contents are removed with suction. You wake up and go home the same day with some cramping and bleeding that resolves over the next few days. If you are in the second trimester, it can be more involved.
