Molar pregnancy

I wondered if anyone knew of someone who had suffered from a molar pregnancy. I was watching Casualty last night and it made me think. I head heard of it but don't of anyone who has had one...

I've seen two members post about their experiences. One was still bf'ing her 16-month-old daughter but unfortunately had no choice but to give it up b/c she needed chemo drugs due to molar pregnancy Sad.

It is, however, very rare, particularly a complete molar pregnancy.

Very interesting Soapbox... I also know you have POF... do you think the two were linked?

It is possible that the POF lead to crappy eggs being released. Indeed Molar pregnancy is most common in older women where egg quality is diminishing. So quite possibly I was already in peri-menopause when I had the molar.

Interesting - can I ask how and when you realised that it was a molar pregnancy?
Thank you
