Can You Take Fertility Drug To Have Twins
Can you "rig" the potential to have twins. Even if fertile, does taking a fertility drug make multiples work my wife is 40 and we'd like to make sure we have 2 kids
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. ...Read more

What is the best over-the-counter fertility drug to use if I want to conceive twins? I am 25 and TTC with irregular cycles.
Sorry, no: The fertilized egg must either completely separate during cell division ("identical") or the ovary must happen to release multiple oocytes which get fertilized in same time proximity ("fraternal"). Neither of these phenomena are able to be externally encouraged via natural methods. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I want to have twins ...I have no problem getting pregnant ...I was hoping i could use a fertility druck my bio dad is a twin im 23 years after I have my next pregnancy i was to get fixed ... What can I do?
Be : Be careful what you wish for ... Twins are more high risk than a single baby, although most twins do fine with good OB and neonatal care, some twins have long-term problems, some are premature and some don't even make it to viability and are born before 24 weeks. The risk of cerebral palsy, a serious birth defect, is 4 - 5 times higher in twins compared to a single baby. You have a higher chance of pregnancy complications including serous ones like preeclampsia or placental abruption, a higher risk of c/section, and even a very slight increase in divorce rate. I know the media and anne geddes and other baby photographers all love to show pictures of cute twins all dressed up ... The kids with cerebral palsy are generally not shown on the front cover of a magazine. Couples who need treatment for infertility, from simple treatments like Clomid to advanced treatments such as in vitro fertilization (ivf), often have an increased risk of twins if more than one egg is released with fertility medications, or if more than one embryo is replaced into a woman's uterus after ivf. If we're treating couples for infertility who can't get pregnant on their own twins may be an acceptable risk of the treatment. Many couples tell me they want twins - they have been trying for a baby for one or many years, and many couples want two babies total and would love to have twins and 'be done'. We do our best to avoid triplets or more, though. In this case the risk of twins is justified by the benefit of treatment of their infertility. If you don't have any problems getting pregnant your natural chance of twins is about 1%. I don't recommend going to an ob/gyn or fertility md just because you want twins (wanting twins for "social reasons") - if you end up with complications to you or the babies, would it be worthwhile compared with just having two more kids separately? I would not recommend "getting fixed" in your early 20's until you are 100% sure that you're done either, we have great birth control options like the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud which is about as effective as having your tubes tied but reversible if you have one more child and then want another one later. I know this is not the answer you want. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
