With : With Clomid (clomiphene) your chance of twins is about 5-10% of the women who get pregnant. For women with infertility the chance of getting pregnant with Clomid (clomiphene) is about 10% in a month.
With in vitro fertilization (ivf) assuming that you have normal egg supply, your chance of twins is less than 5% if we put one embryo back into you, and up to 40% with two embryos replaced. From another question you asked you are under 25 - your success rate with ivf could be as high as 60-65% with one cycle of treatment.
However i don't think it is a good idea to go to a fertility clinic if you don't have a fertility problem - you get all the risks of fertility treatment without any good reason to do the treatment in the first place. It's like going to a surgeon to get your appendix or gall bladder removed if you don't have a problem with either - you get all the risks and complications of the surgery without the benefits of the surgery.
If you have a limit of 4 children it's safest for you and them to have two more single pregnancies. If twins happen naturally, great, but otherwise please read my answer to your other question for more information on the risks of multiple pregnancies including twins.
