What are the chances of having consecutive sets of twins?

In brief: The chance is bigger

I don't have exact number, but odds are higher to have a consequent set of twins, if it's a natural multiple pregnancy.

There is a small genetic predeliction to twins, but mostly it is luck.
The genetic trait is for an increased number of identical twins. Non-identical twins seem to be of similar rate in all people. The highest number of identical twins are in certain ethnic groups, specifically some african groups.
