Molar pregnancy is a condition that occurs when the placenta forms cysts instead of a normal placenta. This condition is also called hydatidiform mole. It occurs due to problems during fertilization and, unfortunately, you cannot cause or prevent it. In more extreme forms neither the embryo nor the placenta develop correctly. In less extreme forms the embryo may start to develop and there may be some normal placenta tissue, however the embryo will not be able to survive. A molar pregnancy must be treated as early as possible to make sure that it does not develop into cancer that could endanger the mother, though this is extremely rare.
