If in doubt, it never hurts to get a second opinion.
Molar pregnancies are diagnosed with history of heavy/irregular painless vaginal bleeding
, beta-hcg levels higher than expected for gestational age, ultrasound that shows a uterus
without a gestational sac, and no detection of fetal movement or heart
tones. Treatment for molar pregnancy
is a D&C and monitoring of beta-hcg levels for 1 year.
