There : There is no evidence of any means to increase the chance of twins. Having twins is influenced by genetics. Older woman also have a higher chance of having twins. Fertility drugs do increase the risk of twins. Twin pregnancies are fraught with complications and are considered high risk. A woman age 40 will most likely be able to have two successful pregnancies.
