Risks with multiples: Twin, triplet, and higher-order pregnancies are higher risk for both mom and babies. Risks include preterm labor/delivery, pre-eclampsia, uneven distribution of bloodflow & nutrients to babies, diabetes and other health problems for mom, and identicals or babies who share a sac can even get tangled up. Multiple pregnancies should be closely monitored by a high-risk OB specialist.

Yes: There is always a chance of multiple pregnancies, even in natural cycles. Twins are roughly 5-6% of Clomid (clomiphene) pregnancies; triplets and all higher multiples are somewhere between 1/500 to 1/1000, though in my personal experience it is likely less than that.
