My twin babies died in me for 3 weeks and I gave birth, they were in the same sac and I pass only 1 placenta, is it ok to get pregnant 4 months after?

These twins hardly ever survive because no membrane separates their cords, so normal movement will eventually wind up twisting the two cords around each other until strangulation occurs. ...Read more

Can a tummy tuck help a post-pregnancy belly? I recently gave birth to twin girls. Right now, I am five months postpartum, but none of the exercises that I am doing are helping get rid of my saggy belly skin. Can tummy tucks actually get rid of all this e

Hope my answer helps: Twins are 2 embryos implanting. The risk of miscarriage with one embryo implanting ia approximately 15% and with 2 embryos this risk is bound to double. In addition, some of the twin pregnancies are from cleavage of 1 embryo that is associated with errors such as unequal DNA material in the 2 embryos. This results in miscarriage in most instances as a protective mechanism. Good Luck! ...Read more
