Pregnancy Care for Twins

posted 8 years 2 weeks 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!

Dear Darkchild.
Thank you for your interest in getting information about the conception of twins as a result of fertility drugs. Multiple pregnancies can be attributed to the use of fertility drugs used by women to enable them to produce eggs. Most of the twins and triplets born nowadays are as a result of fertility treatment. Such births sometimes end up hiking the medical bills for babies and mothers. I was in California when a woman delivered octuplets. We women are sometimes put on treatment that makes us take drugs that are meant to enable ovaries to produce eggs. Infertility has seen too many a woman go through a lot of therapy aimed at correcting the situation, and doctors give Clomid pills to stimulate hormones charged with the responsibility of aiding conception. In case it doesn't work, there are powerful drugs given in shots, which bring about higher risks of multiple eggs being released.
It is incumbent upon the doctors to use ultrasound as well as blood tests to check the egg(s) produced and be in a position to advise the couple involved against trying to conceive during that month just in case there are many eggs, to reduce the risk of multiple births. However, monitoring doesn't happen, if done then it isn't done well, and sometimes those couples eager to have a baby would disregard the advice.
