Why such low chance of twins/higher order multiples on clomid, (clomiphene) when it is so common to produce more than one follicle? Does hCG trigger up the odds?

The advantage is less chance of ovarian hyperstimulation, which can lead to torsion and surgery/possible loss of the ovary. Hcg won't necessarily increase twin rates. ...Read more
