Eat yams and dairy
There exist some cultures, which have more twins than other nations in the world. Actually, the Yoruba tribe, from West Africa, has more multiple births rate than all the other nationalities. Their mothers’ diet consists of a lot of cassava, which is a type of yam or sweet potato. According to the theory, the peeling from this kind of vegetables contains some chemical substance, which causes hyperovulation, thus helping these women deliver more twins. Moreover, a 2006 study found, that if a woman consumes a lot of dairies, she is five times as likely to deliver twins, triplets or quadruplets.
Be breastfeeding when you get pregnant
According to some recent investigations, if you are breastfeeding, and get pregnant during this time of your life, you have more chances to deliver more than one baby at a time. The reason for it is considered to be the depletion of calcium in your system during the process of breastfeeding, and it also affects the egg’s dividing during the ovulation and conception.
Be older when you get pregnant
It is considered that the older is the woman, the more chances she has to conceive twins or more babies than her younger counterparts are. The reason for it may be the body’s accelerating the ovulation process because the woman’s biological clock begins to tick faster. An older woman may either have several ovulation during the same menstrual cycle or several eggs released during one ovulation. According to the statistical data, seventeen per cent of mothers, who are older than 45, have multiples. If you wait five more years, you will have one chance to deliver twins, triples or even more babies at one time will become one in nine. But you are to be aware, that older mothers risk more as well, and not only their health and life are at risk of some complications, but their babies are at much higher risk of any chromosomal disorder as well.
Be a twin
It has been discovered, that twins have a higher rate of delivering twins or triplets themselves.
Have a family history of twins.
Are there any twins, triplets or quadruplets in your family, mostly from your mother’s relatives’ side? If the answer is “YES”, your chance to deliver several babies at a time gets increased. I rely on your family history, you will most likely deliver dizygotic or fraternal babies, rather than monozygotic or identical ones. This is because of your family’s reproductive systems’ ability to release more than one egg during the process of ovulation.
Be a certain ethnicity.
Interesting it is, but the rate of delivery of twins, triplets, etc is much higher in African Americans than in other ethnicities.
Take fertility drugs
There exist doctors, who may prescribe you some definite kinds of fertility drugs in order to make your chances of having twins increased. These drugs will make multiples eggs release during the ovulation. Of course, it will not be easy for you to find the doctor, who will not be scared to prescribe the fertility drugs for you to take, but still, you do have chances. The problem is that taking fertility drugs, any woman occurs at some health complication risk, like blood clotting, and any type of fertility drugs is prohibited for those women, suffering from any heart, kidney or liver disease. Moreover, fertility drugs are reserved for people, who have troubles with being able to conceive.
Try fertility treatments
Modern reproductive technologies lead to a dramatic increase in multiple births. However, only those families, who really need it, may apply fertility treatments. Such procedures, like In Vitro Fertilization, etc, increase the woman’s chances to conceive twins or more babies at one time. It is so because usually several embryos are implanted into the woman’s uterus, so, that the chance that at least one of them will attach to the wall of the uterus and begins to develop would become greater. In addition, any fertility treatment does not only increase the risk of dizygotic twins, but there arrive more monozygotic or identical twins, conceived in the result of In Vitro Fertilization as well.
Have More Twins
If you have already delivered twins or more babies at a time, you become significantly more likely to conceive and have another pair of twins. There was an investigation conducted, which proved, that mothers, who delivered twins, are four times more likely to have twins one more time, than any woman, who has not been pregnant yet, or a woman, who delivered only one baby.
Have A Big Family
Scientists and gynaecologist consider, that the more children you have, the more likely you are to conceive and deliver twins, triplets or more babies in your following pregnancy. There is no that magic limit, which would trigger any kind of multiple pregnancies, so the only thing you may do is simply keep trying until you have your desired multiples.
Get Pregnant On the Pill
All birth control pills are considered to be up to 99.9 per cent effective at preventing unplanned pregnancy. However, how about that 0.1 per cent? And it is it, that may often result in a double whammy – in a pregnancy with twins. There are cases, when a woman becomes pregnant if she was not taking her birth control pills consistently, in other cases, that mixture of hormones, present in any particular type of birth control pills, purely can not provide enough coverage to prevent ovulation completely. There is also the chance, that is the result of playing around with hormones, a woman may have hyperovulation, which also increases her ability to conceive and deliver several babies at one time.
Just Get Lucky
There are bunches of parents, who fit none of the points, which are mentioned above, and they still have twins or more babies arrived. Monozygotic multiples are actually one of the biggest mysteries of the world, as there is nobody, who can be certain what may cause a woman’s egg split after the conception takes place. The main point is that there is not a lot of things, a single person is able to do in order to be sure of delivering twins, sometimes it is simply a matter of luck.
