The Testpack Results Are Still Positive After The Curettage?
good afternoon my doctor want to ask? on 8-1-2019, the same thing happened to be pregnant with grapes and had to be cleared with a curette on the 18th I checked up the ultrasound to reveal the clean content (at that time I did not do a pregnancy test) then I did a judicial test on 4 – 2 – 2019 it turns out that strip 2 I went to see the doctor again on 8-2-2019 in the ultrasound of the clean womb, a new curette interval of one month was still detected positively. I was referred to an ontologist, who I asked was it really like that? and he said later on chemo?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Grape pregnancy, or molar pregnancy, is a pregnancy condition that is quite rare, where in this condition, the process of egg development after fertilization fails so that instead of forming a baby, the results of fertilization actually form a collection of fluid-filled sacs that look like white wine.
Among the factors that increase a person's risk of becoming pregnant with wine are:
The age of the mother during pregnancy is more than 40 years old or teenagers Have experienced pregnancy wine before Miscarriage Ethnic Asian
Regarding your question, after pregnancy the wine is lifted or taken through the curettage method. In some cases tissue may be left behind and continue to grow. This tissue is called gestational trophoblastic neoplasia / GTN. One sign of GTN is that pregnancy hormone levels are still high even though pregnancy does not occur. That is why if after checking it is proven that you are not pregnant, it is feared that high pregnancy hormone levels and being seen in the testpack means that you have a GTN. Of course there are other conditions that can cause pregnancy hormone levels to rise even though no fetus is found, namely pregnancy outside the uterus and certain types of tumors or cancers.
If it is believed to be GTN, your doctor will see the severity, and the treatment will be adjusted to the severity and your clinical condition, which in your case, through chemotherapy.
Responding to this, the path of the disease is indeed what your doctor is doing is reasonable and grounded, but if you still feel unsure or want further examination, you have the right to request it, especially if you do not use guarantees. You can ask for a second opinion from another obstetrician, and ask questions until you are satisfied with your illness. What is clear, only he can really know your condition because he is checking you. And later if you are satisfied, it is your turn to take a position on the treatment that will be given to you. So, hopefully answering your question.
