What are the chances to have twin pregnancy or beyond in existence of uterus fibroid ?

What are the chances to have twin pregnancy or beyond in existence of uterus fibroid
?

Depends: The incidence of twins depends on what part of the world you are from. In the us, the incidence is 33/1000.. Because the position of the fibroid in your uterus may be an important factor, it is difficult to say if your chances are better or worse than another patient without fibroids. Check with your OB to find out if the fibroid is near the inner surface of the the uterine cavity or the outer. ...Read more

Dr. Is it true that after 1st pregnancy miscarriage there is a chances of having twins in next pregnancy? Taking folic acid increases twins chances?

Dr. Is it true that after 1st pregnancy miscarriage there is a chances of having twins in next pregnancy? Taking folic acid increases twins chances?

No evidence: I had never heard this but searched and found many forums where people said they had heard this, but I could find NO research that shows this is actually true and can not think of why it would be. I did find a study showing women who got pregnant within 6 months of miscarriage had better outcomes. Folic acid does not increase chance of twins but decreases chance of miscarriage & birth defects. ...Read more

Is it true that the chance of conceiving twins is higher after a recent miscarriage?

Is it true that the chance of conceiving twins is higher after a recent miscarriage?

No: I've never hear that statistic before. Twins have a genetic susceptibility (meaning they run in families). Being older at conception (like late 30's) also increases chances. To my knowledge pregnancy after a miscarriage doesn't increase chance. ...Read more

Want are chances for miscarriage of one baby with twins?

Want are chances for miscarriage of one baby with twins?

About 30%: 25-30% of twin pregnancies will reduce to one naturally. In addition there is a 5% risk of loss after 20 weeks. I know that is scary but keep in mind that a normal single pregnancy has about the same risk of miscarriage. ...Read more

At 9.5 weeks with twins, heartbeats were 167 and babies are 2.7cm & 3cm. At this point, what are the chances of miscarrying one or both twins?

At 9.5 weeks with twins, heartbeats were 167 and babies are 2.7cm & 3cm. At this point, what are the chances of miscarrying one or both twins?

Chances are lower: Obviously twins are a higher risk for complications than a single gestation but with 2 very healthy heartbeats you certainly can breathe somewhat easier. Your OB will go over with you risks of twins at the various gestational ages but i would try to relax at this point. ...Read more

What is the best method to help with stretch marks after twin pregnancy?

What is the best method to help with stretch marks after twin pregnancy?

Give them some time: They may lighten up with time, and you can decide whether you still want to do something about them later. Try cocoa butter to help keep the skin elastic. Avoid sun damage. Sometimes, retinoids (creams often used for acne) can help, and pulse-light or laser can as well. ...Read more
