There is a certain type of yam eaten by a tribe in Africa that has the highest twinning rate in the world.
Eat lots of milk, calcium, and meat (vegatarians are 5 times less likely to have twins I think I read somewhere).
But, unless you are on IVF or a fertility drug, it really is just a case of absolute luck.

Have sex twice on your birthday!

Worked for me, but then again I'm adopted and don't know much about my family history.

There is a chance for having twins after an abortion, I'm proof of that.

Goodluck!

According to my DH, you just need to find someone with "Chuck Norris" sperm, like him, so your egg will split. rotflmbo.gif rotflmbo.gif

I have ID twins. The whole summer before getting pregnant in Sept., my husband and I ate sweet potatoes and I took 1mg of folic acid. I didn't know about the yams until after I was pregnant with twins, but I find it strange that we ate so many in the summer and ended up with twins.

We have wood stairs in the house and my bf pledged them one day and right around the time I got pregnant I fell down them, so the joke is I fell down them and split the egg because he pledged them! and I was on the pill.....

I've heard anecdotal evidence that a lot of twins are conceived by women just after stopping birth control pills (I guess the idea is that you have all these "extra" eggs since you haven't been ovulating). No idea if there's any scientific evidence for this, but it worked for me (not that I was "trying" for twins . . . I was on the pill for most of 16 years, then got pregnant with b/g twins the first month off).

I read lots of folic acid prior to concieving will help produce two eggs. I took mag/cal/zinc along with 400mg of folic acid and lots of cranberry supplements (was trying for a girl and got identical twin boys.....thanks for the joke god...really funny!!! FIFblush.gif ) and wasnt trying for twins just happened to have an egg who wanted to split!! I can say that although I am blessed to be recieving twins, I wouldnt want to try to have twins. very difficult pregnancy and financially it will just be crazy!

I have a friend that got pregnant with twins while she was taking the vitamin B shot with hormones to help with weight loss. They do tell you that unless you are on birth control your chances of getting pregnant increases and the chances of it being a multiple is raised as well. WE have twins in the family so I was just lucky LOL

I've read somewhere that soy isoflavones can sometimes act like natural Clomid and trigger two eggs to ovulate at once.

IVF/Fertility meds is still just "lucky" too. wink.gif It's not a given that you will have twins.

I totally agree. I would research the risks and challenges of having twins before you purposely try to conceive them. Twins means a high-risk pregnancy, generally a very difficult first year (or at least first several months), more strain on the marriage--parents of multiples have a much higher divorce rate than average, etc. Be careful what you wish for.

Hmmm.
Why are you "desperate to have twin kids"? Children are a blessing no matter how many you have at once.

Like someone said twins are not something I would be trying for. Its much easier and its a lot of fun to have one at one time. I mean I am happy that I am having twins now b/c it happened but its never something I wanted before.
I had just stopped my pill when I got pregnant. I didnt even get another cycle so now that I read that can be a cause I am sure thats what happened.

With my dd, I had just stopped the pill as well and got pregnant that same month......
