What are my chances of having twins after having multiple pregnancies?


Answer by  ohmandy (144)

Becoming pregnant with twins all depends on what information in the sperm and egg are carrying. If your family, or the father's family have a history of twins, there is a possibility regardless of how many children you have had already.

Depends on what caused the multiple pregnancy the first time. If it was through natural conception, then it is very likely that you may have twins against. However, if you used medication or any type of fertility treatment for your pregnancy, and this time you are trying to conceive without those methods, you may not have twins.

The chance for conceiving and successfully carrying twins is slightly higher for women who have born children in the past, and it also increases with age. It's nearly impossible to say what your exact odds are, other than "higher than average". The increased rate of conception of twins only applies to fraternal (non-identical) twins.

Without the use of fertility treatments, the chance of having twins is a little less than 3%. If you are using fertility treatments to conceive, you have a 25% chance.

Because you have already had multiple pregnancies you are at greater chance of having twins. The older a woman gets the more likely she is to hyperovulate, resulting in twins.

Your chances of having twins only increases with age and with the use of fertility treatments, the number of pregnancies you have had does not effect it


Answer by  Darry (3853)

The chances of producing twins or other higher order multiples does not change in regard to the number of pregnancies a woman has had. All women have a chance to have multiples, though taking fertility drugs increases this chance. Women who have had twins or other multiples previously typically will not have another multiple pregnancy but it is possible.


Answer by  Huntress (1935)

The percentage of having twins under normal circumstances is about 3%. There will always be a chance of having twins no matter how many pregnancies the woman has had. The odds aren't extremely high but accept that the possibility of twins goes up dramatically if there is a history of twins/triplets in the family.
