Ultrasound: An ultrasound done vaginally of the female organs can identify fibroids. A saline infused sonogram is similar but saline (salt water) is gently infused into the uterus during the ultrasound with a small tube which allows polyps in the uterine cavity to be seen. Polyps are usually benign but can cause irregular bleeding. Fibroids can cause periods to be very heavy and long.

Yes: All fraternal (non-identical ) twins have their own placentas. Some identical twins do share a placenta and a bag of water; this is the least common type of twin pregnancy and can be identified by ultrasound. Identical twins that share placenta and bag of water are at high risk of complications.
