Hi, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. D& C after molar pregnancy can lead to irregular periods due to raised hCG levels. The levels gradually become normal and the levels are measured weekly till normal.If they do not fall or plateaus, then you should be investigated for choriocarcinoma.
I would suggest you to consult an OBGYN specialist to get properly examined, investigated and treated accordingly.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health.
