Sometimes: The use of a drug like Clomid (clomiphene) is not a guarantee. This is something you want to discuss with your ob./gyn.

Agree. Ye should discuss with a Gyn doctor. Clomid increases your chance of twins to roughly 5%. In the US, most responsible doctors will not prescribe meds just to increase the twin chance. Good wishes!

Bad idea.: Clomid (clomiphene) produces multiple gestations - trouble is, it can easily overshoot and produce very high risk pregnancies with 3 or more fetuses. Even a twin gestation is more likely to produce preemies or perinatal problems than a singleton; triplets or more almost guarantee need for intensive care for the babies.

Thanks for asking!: Clomid (clomiphene) could work with you, but does not guarantee girls.
