Being pregnant is one of the most beautiful dreams for all the married women and having children even if it is only one child is capable of making the life that we live more exciting. Although it is not an easy task to have children and raise them, there is not anyone on the earth who hates this gift and does not want to get it one day. There are some people who do their best to have only one child but can’t, while there are others who dream of having twins and do their best to get them. Having twins is not common in different countries in the world since they represent about 3% only of all the pregnancies in the United States and the other countries are nearly the same. The question here is why do you dream of having twins? Some people hope to have twins because they like the idea of having children who look like each other, while there are other people who want to increase the number of their children in a short period of time for getting a large family in the future. Whatever the reasons are, come and see how you can increase your chances of having twins.
♦ Obese & tall “Gain more weight & height”
Those obese mothers whose BMI is higher than 30 are more likely to conceive twins than others who are thinner. Those tall women who are higher than the average height are also luckier since they are found to have more chances of conceiving twins than those shorter mothers.
♦ You have to be older
It is widely known that those mothers who are older than 45 years experience more problems during pregnancy than others who are younger, however the old mothers have more chances to conceive twins than the young women since the process of ovulation is accelerated by the body of those old mothers over 45.
♦ Genetic factors “Get these genes”
The genes that we have in our bodies can sometimes play an important role in controlling the number of the children whom we have. Is there anyone in your family who has twins? If twins happen in the family, especially your mother’s family, then this can help you to increase your chances of having twins as you may inherit these genes that run in the family which allows you to conceive twins.
♦ Play with hormones
Do you ask yourself how I can do this? Use the birth control pills to achieve what you want. Birth control pills are widely used for preventing pregnancy, but when they are not taken regularly and constantly, you can become pregnant and those who become pregnant during this time are more likely to conceive twins than others who conceive without taking birth control pills.
♦ Do not waste your time during breastfeeding
It is commonly thought that ovulation stops while breastfeeding which prevents the woman from becoming pregnant during that time, but in fact all of this is untrue. If you want to increase your chances of having twins, try to conceive while breastfeeding.
♦ Consume more cassava & dairy products
Where can you find the highest rates of having twins? What can you eat to increase your chances of having twins? These two questions can be answered by Yoruba people who live in West Africa and are recorded to conceive the largest number of twins. Having a large number of twins among Yoruba people is thought to be associated with what they eat since they consume a large amount of cassava which is a type of sweet potato “yam”. Consuming dairy products is also thought to play an important role in increasing the chances of having twins.
♦ Good luck
Sometimes, you will find that there are not any reasons that are responsible for having twins, only luck is the main factor that is responsible for being blessed with twins. So, you may need to be lucky enough to have twins without the need to do anything.
Other factors that can help you to increase your chances of having twins include
Being well nourished, having many children “more than four children”, taking vitamins particularly folic acid supplements, implanting several eggs and finally encouraging the ovaries by using Clomid.
