Pregnancy Care for Twins

posted 1 year 5 months ago
I was doing some research the other day and read some comments on some forums on how pregnancy care drugs aid the conception of twins.

Does anyone know for certain if this is a possibility?

Fertility drugs do increase your chances of getting pregnant with twins. Normally, the occurrence of twins in the US is about 1:90, meaning that there will be one twin pregnancy with every ninety pregnancies. Now, when you do take fertility drugs, the chances of conceiving twins or multiples are higher.

For instance, if you're taking Clomiphene, your chance of having twins is increased to 10 percent. Then your chance of having multiples is increased to 1 percent. And yes, that isn't a lot but it still has some effect to that possibility.

If you're taking Gonadotropins, the chances are increased as well. But it is higher than taking Clomiphenes, say maybe around 30 percent.

Of course, with more foetuses, the risks are higher. So you still need to consult with your OB-GYN if you do need the fertility drugs or even if your body can take the high risk pregnancy.

Good luck!
