Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. Thereâs a possibility of your suffering from hydatidiform mole taking in view of the symptoms which you have described.
Molar pregnancy is an abnormal form of pregnancy, in which a non-viable, fertilized egg implants in the uterus, thus converting normal pregnancy process into pathological one.
This situation arises when an empty egg with no nucleus is fertilized by a normal sperm. The treatment is done by either suction & evacuation or by surgical curettage.
In case, the molar pregnancy is confirmed, then a pregnancy should be avoided for at least one year.
More than 80% of hydatidiform moles are benign. The outcome after treatment is usually very good.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
