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.

Twin pregnancy: can be risky for someone with history of gestational diabetes, but certainly not impossible. Other history heightens the perinatal risk, including placenta previa, placentia abruptio, previous C-section, previous eclampsia or pre-eclampsia, previous preterm labor or premature births. Be in close relationship with your OB physician and nurse. Good luck.

Women with multiple gestations are at higher risk for cesarean birth, premature delivery, preterm labor, preeclampsia, diabetes.

Ultrasound only!: Anyone that tells you that you can diagnose a multifetal (twin, triplet or higher-order) pregnancy without ultrasound is misleading you. Any symptoms seen in singleton pregnancies can be seen with multiples as well.

I would like to induce twin pregnancy with clomid (clomiphene). How safe n effective will it be?

Not smart: A twin pregnancy increases the risk of miscarriage, premature labor/rupture of membranes/delivery; high blood pressure and sugar during pregnancy, and the need for c/section. Trying to induce twins isn't smart and is potentially dangerous to you and your possible baby. Dr. Roseff www.Reproendo.Com.

?

Reference line: The reference line for the "bikini cut" is the line where the scar would be hidden by a woman's bikini bottoms. This is less than 5 cm. If the scar is 10 cm above the pubic bone, the woman's body habitus may have dictated that.
