I am just wondering if any one can share information on this subject? I had a partial molar pregnancy 2 1/2 years ago and that was the hardest thing I have ever gone threw. My husband and I had gone in at 10 weeks and we heard the baby's heart beat for the first time then 4 weeks later I go in and they can not find a heart beat so they sent me to get an ultrasound. The ultrasound tech. tells me there is no fetal heartbeat and sends me back to the drs office where they sent me to get a D and C well they had to pretty much induce me because i was at 14 1/2 weeks. anyways I got the results back that it was a partial Molar Pregnancy. So for 1 year I had to go in and get blood tests every couple of weeks to make sure that it would not come back and turn in to cancer which it can. well I was not to get pregnant for a year but I did 6 months after which made me at high risk for the first couple of months but everything went well except the labor I hemmoraged really bad during delivery they never told my why or what could have happened but I was wondering do you think maybe the molar pregnancy had weakend me? I was then told by my gyn. that I should not try to get pregnant anymore because of the molar pregnancy and the hemmorage? I am asking for any information because there is not alot on this subject anywhere because it is rare. Thank you, Confused

  • Hydatidiform moles can exaggerate the usual symptoms of pregnancy. Many of the symptoms are similar to those associated with miscarriage, and most women with molar pregnancies first believe they have miscarried. Invasive moles and choriocarcinomas can cause symptoms during or after pregnancy, and symptoms can develop after a hydatidiform mole has been removed. The most common symptom is vaginal bleeding, especially between the 6th and 16th weeks of pregnancy. Another symptom is bleeding that continues for a long time after delivery. Small amounts of bleeding can show up as a watery brown discharge from the vagina. Sometimes, a piece of tissue containing grapelike shapes will pass through the vagina, though this is not common. It is important to remember that most vaginal bleeding during or after pregnancy is not associated with a molar pregnancy. However, you should report any bleeding during pregnancy to your health care professional. As the growth can spread through the uterus, it may well weaken it and account for your bleeding.
