It just goes to show how outdated the term 'identical' is when referring to twins, hey?

Does PCOS play a chance for twins? I've always wondered this as pcos leads to multiple follicles sometimes

Your question "Does PCOS paly a chance in twins?".....I to have been wondering this. I have this month had 3 large follies on my right O and 1 large on my Left O and was told to DTD to avoid having multiples.
Im now 8dpo and totaly ignored my doc advice completely after trying to have another baby for 8 years now, So im hoping i caught at least one...but 2 would be nice, 3 um ok, 4 maybe my limit. But you get it....why would we stop trying because of this risk ??
So back to LPH question, im very interested to know more if any one knows ??
Hope you dont mind me jumping in to have a nosey....just getting ahead of my self !

Wickednails, you ask why would you not TTC this cycle because of the risk of higher order multiples. Well why don't you google risks of prematurity and see for yourself why doctors don't like multiple births. Sorry but I think it's irresponsible to continue to DTD against doctors advice. I hope for your sake you don't get pregnant with triplets or more then miscarriage or have extreme premature bubs.

Thanks for the very informative posts!
My twins were fraternal, but I had two placenta lobes (looks like they fused, rather than 2 seperate placentas)
My older sisters twins are fraternal too, we both seem to ovulate twice!
They gave me a 1/4 chance of twins again, especially if I fell pregnant while breastfeeding, but this time I am high risk from the start, if it is multiples (no chance of attempting a VB) since only DD made it earthside

I am sorry, I didn't mean to make you feel like cr*p. I can't imagine what it is like to be a long term ttc'er and be told not to give it a go one month because of the risk of multiples. I do wish you all the best

Such an interesting read! We are currently 27 weeks with dizygotic diamniotic twins- a boy and girl. Dh's dad is an ID twin, and has a set of twin boys who I think are dcda. Dh's mums side has triplets but they were 1 egg split into 3.
People ask all the time who has twins in the family and we just say dh. It's so much easier than explaining that it doesn't matter that twins are on his side, or that we conceived on clomid lol.
Found it really interesting to read that there is still a chance our bubs came from one egg-- the whole thing is fascinating!
