Natural Preconception Methods: Twins
Many people want to know if there are natural ways they can increase their chances of conceiving twins. Several studies have shown that there are certain natural supplements people can take (i.e., Folic Acid) and modifications they can make to their dietary intake (i.e., dairy products and higher caloric intake) which will increase the chances of conceiving twins (both identical twins and fraternal twins).

Natural Preconception Methods: TwinsBy Alessandra R. Linder, LPMT of BABY NATURAL GENDER SELECTION, INC.There are two types of twins: identical twins and fraternal twins. Identical twins areformed by a fertilized egg dividing into two separate genetically identical individuals ofthe same sex. In contrast, fraternal twins are formed by two separate eggs fertilized bytwo separate sperm which may be the same or different sexes (which are geneticallydifferent either way). Both types of twins are carried in the same uterus at the sametime. The natural occurrence of twins is about 1 in 42 for fraternal twins and about 1 in285 for identical twins.As with natural gender selection methods to conceive baby girl or boy, many peoplewant to know if there are natural ways they can increase their chances of conceivingtwins.If you are a fraternal twin, you have a 1 in 17 chance of having fraternal twins. If you arean identical twin, it doesn’t affect your chances. If your mother is a fraternal twin, youmay have a higher than average chance of twins. If you father is a twin, it doesn’t affectyour chances, as fraternal twinning is apparently carried down the maternal line. If youhave a parent that is an identical twin, your chance of having twins yourself is the sameas anyone else.As for identical twins, the use of fertility drugs and fertility clinic procedures do notincrease the chances of having identical twins whatsoever.As for fraternal twins, although the use of fertility clinic procedures (i.e., high techsperm separating procedures (Sorting), Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD),
artificial insemination by In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), etc…) along with fertility drugs(i.e., Clomid) has resulted in an increased rate of conception of fraternal twins, studieshave shown that these medical procedures pose potential risks of genetic damage to thesperm, egg, or embryo (i.e., sperm subjected to laser radiation and fluorescent dyeswhile sorting, harvesting the egg, artificial insemination by IVF, PGD, etc…) resulting inan unhealthy fetus upon fertilization or an unforeseen future detrimental effect on thechild (which is beyond the inherent problems of having twins naturally in the first place:low birth weight, need for c-section, tearing of abdominal muscles, need for bed rest,stillbirth, etc…).Therefore, many people want to know if there are natural ways they can increase theirchances of conceiving twins. Several studies have shown that there are certain naturalsupplements people can take (i.e., Folic Acid) and modifications they can make to theirdietary intake (i.e., dairy products and higher caloric intake) which will increase thechances of conceiving twins (both identical twins and fraternal twins). These studiesprove that once again, folks can turn to natural ways of achieving their goals (genderselection to conceive baby girl or boy as well as twinning) without running the risk ofresorting to possibly genetically damaging medical procedures.For more details log on: Babynaturalgenderselection.com
