In brief: No such thing
I never heard of a molar pregnancy.
I think this is a typo.

You would need serial hcg's to make sure levels go down to zero and stay down.
Dr. Amy Herold
Obstetrics & Gynecology
In brief: Ultrasound and labs
Molar pregnancies are diagnosed by ultrasound.
Pregnancy hormone levels are checked and are significantly elevated in molar pregnancies. They cannot be dated or measured like a typical pregnancy, because there is no fetal tissue to measure, so the last menstrual period is used for dating.
