Our expert says:
If you had a molar pregnancy, this means that the fetus did not form, but instead the placenta was abnormally developed ( a growth). Sometimes this can persist even after a D&C, hence the need for follow -up blood tests. There is no way that you can do anything to prevent this. It si not a question of the first D&C not being doen properly, rather that there can be persistence/recurrence of the growth. Sometimes, chemotherapy is necessary as well.
