During my one week check up with my doctor after having a D and C, I was told the pregnancy I had was anything but normal. That I had a partial molar pregnancy. I would like to hear from anyone having this same experience. Because from what I've been told there's a possibility this can turn into a particular disease, and in turn cancer. I want to learn everything I can, because I plan to fight.

What can I do next?

So What Happened?

Well, turns out I'm a pretty special girl, I've got an appointment in a week with a gynecologial oncologist for Gestational Trophoblastic Disease (cancer)treatment. Not sure what will happen, but I'm expecting chemo and maybe a partial hysterectomy.Will let you know how it turns out.

A month later, I started the chemo and the shots were easy and in 5 weeks, my numbers dropped to 2909, because they were dropping extrememly slowly and the doctor suspected the chemo wasn't working, we switch to and iv treatment, but that didn't work either, my numbers jumped in three weeks to 7022, and now I'm scheduled for an abdominal hysterctomy on May 12. I'm completely at peace with this and ready to get this over with. Will let you know how it goes.

Hi A.,
I had the same condition with my first pregnancy. I miscarried because of the hydidaform mole that was growing on the inside of my uterus. It's a fairly rare condition, most prevalent in Asian women, least likely in Caucasian women. They sent the fetal tissue off for testing and I actually had the cancer called choriocarsinoma. I had to take shots and do blood work every week for a year.

After that year, I found out I was pregnant again with what is now my 12 year old daughter.

I was told that it was a deformity with the pregnancy only, not with my body, so it was a very very slim chance that I would ever have it again.

If you want to ask me any other questions, feel free to email me. Im also giving you a Web MD link that explains the condition a little better.

Hi A. H.

I had a partial molar pregnancy 5 1/2years ago. Had the D&C done, blood checked for a few months to make sure the HCG levels were going down, told that I didn't need to get pregnant for a year or more.I found out at 7 1/2 wks by ultrasound. Waited till I was 12 wks before the D&C, waiting for my body to miscarry. How long ago was the D&C?? Why did the doctor not tell you before the D&C? Good Luck!! Going to try to put some links on here so u can look at them.

I really hope those sites will help you. I wish you the best!!
