Hello! I am a fertile woman, i want to have twins. What do I do to have it, please advise. Thanks.

I've been told that the occurrence of twins depends on a woman's DNA and that the ability skips generations - is this true?
No and No: The tendency for a woman to release more than 1 egg is an x linked trait that can be transmitted by either the mother or father. A generation is only skipped if the trait is carried by a male (who can't ovulate!) this results in fraternal twins from 2 separate eggs and sperm. Identical twins occur when a single fertilized egg splits into two embryos and is not genetically determined. ...Read more
