How to Get Pregnant With Twins

Many couples want to get pregnant with twins. It may seem ideal if you only want two children. Having two children that grow up side by side to experience the milestones of life at the same age may seem perfect. You'll get through the diaper period all at one. If you are interested in getting pregnant with twins, there are a few things that you can do to increase your chances of having a multiple birth. Follow these steps that may help increase your chances.
  1. Step 1

    Choose a partner that is a twin. Twins are more likely to have fraternal twins so partnering with a twin may increase your chances of getting pregnant with twins.

  2. Step 2

    Wait until you are of advanced maternal age to have children. The older you are, the more likely you are two have twins. Women over age 35 are more likely to have twins.

  3. Step 3

    Set up an appointment with a fertility specialist. A fertility specialist can prescribe medications and treatments that can increase your chances of having a multiple birth.

  4. Step 4

    Gain weight. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recently released a study that showed women with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher had an increased chance of having twins.
