Pills and supplements could slightly improve the chances of getting pregnant with twins.
1. Take folic acid supplements:
One Australian study showed that a woman’s chances of producing twins increases by taking folic acid before pregnancy (10). However, there are also some studies that have shown contradictory results. Nonetheless, taking folic acid supplements, along with multivitamin supplements, helps prevent neural tube deformities, thus producing healthy babies.
New study reports that women undergoing IVF treatments along with excess intake of folate have increased the likelihood of birthing twins.
These medications improve the chances of having twin babies as they enhance the overall health of eggs and their maturity. Gonadotropins stimulate the release of more than one egg at a time. Your doctor can prescribe the right one for you.
Progesterone strengthens the lining of the uterus, therefore improving the chances of conceiving twins. When more than one egg gets fertilized, there would be a greater chance for them to attach to the uterus wall, and produce a healthy twin pregnancy.
In most cases, these fertility pills can only produce fraternal twins but not identical as pills can increase multiple eggs to release at a time.
