Can infertility result from a molar pregnancy?

Not usually: Molar pregnancies are abnormal pregnancies that act almost like cancers. They require treatment with a d & c, sometimes with chemotherapy and very rarely with hysterectomy.

A molar pregnancy, or hydatidiform mole, is a rare mass or growth that forms inside the uterus at the beginning of a pregnancy. It is a type of gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD).

I had once IUI  resulted in chemical pregnancy no reasons for infertility i need advice whether to repeat IUI or move to IVF  married 3 years?

Maybe IVF: It depends on what testing you are referring to, as there are several ways to perform this test. In some cases, it may refer to 100% being free, which would be normal. 100% affected on the other hand would not be good. It is not absolute that one could not conceive with iui, but with high antibodies, there is a decreased chance outside of ivf. ...Read more
