What’s the best way to treat GTD?
Most cases of GTD are easily treated with surgery. Sometimes, though, a woman experiences persistent trophoblastic disease, which means that evidence of the disease remains after surgery. In those cases, treatment with chemotherapy drugs may be necessary.
What can I do to prevent GTD?
Since the GTD is such a mystery, there’s no known prevention.
What do other women do when they have GTD?
“I had a complete molar pregnancy diagnosed this past March, which has since evolved into GTN (Gestational Trophoblastic Disease), which is cancerous. I am undergoing chemo right now for treatment. It is highly curable, but you do have to wait a while to TTC to make sure you don’t have a recurrence. I will likely have to wait six months to TTC once chemo is finished.”
“Due to the molar turning into Gestational Trophoblastic Disease, I can’t TTC until [eight months from now] at the latest.”
Are there any other resources for GTD?
