In brief: Abnormal pregnancy

Molar pregnancies are when the placenta overgrows and takes over. There may or may not be a fetus or embryo present.
They are caused by abnormal genetics. Normally the sperm contributes half the genetic material. If the sperm contributes most or all of it, a molar pregnancy occurs.
