Welcome to

When did you get your last period?

When did you get the ultrasound done?

Why do you suspect that you may have a molar pregnancy?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Hello, I am at 5 weeks. Didn't have a last period. Stopped my pill and I was pregnant 4 weeks later.
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
The ultrasound was done yesterday. I just don't have a lot of pregnancy symptoms and I worry a lot. I also know someone who this has happened too.

As i got pregnant so quickly I worry its not viable
Expert:  Dr.M.D.Mazumdar replied 8 days ago.

This is a normal healthy pregnancy - the tissue does not show any signs of molar.

Also, a molar pregnancy is likely to cause more severe pregnancy symptoms than a normal pregnancy since the HCG levels tend to be higher.

If your pregnancy symptoms are minimal, a molar pregnancy can be ruled out.

Thank you. What does the tissue look like in a molar? Sorry for the questions
Expert:  Dr.M.D.Mazumdar replied 8 days ago.

The tissue has a typical  appearance which will be recognized by the radiologist.
