Are your twins a result of IVF or natural conception?

    I was just wondering if most of the twin pregnancies on the forum are the result of natural conception or IVF. I am assuming a good number of you did IVF but I could be wrong. As for us, we did IVF/ICSI/ART and got pregnant with boy/girl fraternal twins on the first try! :D

    We were close to seeing a fertility specialist. We tried for 2 years and got NO WHERE and finally we got pregnant the old fashioned way. So our ID twin boys are of natural conception, and MUCH to our surprise I might add :laughing:

    7 years unknown infertility - b/g twins first try at IVF.

    2 years later, breastfeeding twins & getting older got me pregnant with another set spontaniously, but one was vanishing.

    I should add I have no family history.

    Neither. Clomid and IUI, our 3rd try with them after 2 years of no luck on our own. I was so worried we wouldn't conceive via that method (and we didn't have the money for IVF) - but we got doubly lucky!

    Both for me too.

    My twins are result of gonal-f with timed intercourse

    I got pg on my own with triplets but all were blighted ovums a couple months before I got pg with m&m.

    The opposite of natural is artificial. Perhaps you meant spontaneous?

    Anyway, I'm not telling on the internet. :woohoo: I'm just thrilled to have two happy, healthy babies! :)

    Mine were spontaneous b/g following a miscarriage and 8 months of trying again. They are number 7&8 and first set of twins. My DH has a set a fraternal aunts and my grandfathers sisters were ID... seems pretty removed to call it a history of twins... we call it a miracle!

    On our first IVF the doc put back 2 3-day embryos. Only one took - and then it split! We have identical girls on the way.

    Strong family history of twins on both my side and my hubby's side.

    Spontaneous frat boys here. DH is a frat twin as well but that has no bearing on it!!! Other than that, no family history. I would point out that I was also over 30, overweight, tall, had previous pregnacies and was hormonally imbalanced. All factors for twins apparently. Didn't know any of that while we were conceiving. :tease:

    Spontaneous while on birth control with no family history on my side...shocker to say the least.

    Mine were medically encouraged :laughing: We did IVF/ICSI after many years of no luck on a spontaneous pregnancy. We also had a failed FET after the twins.

    We DO have twins on both sides of the family, so I can answer that honestly if people ask if they 'run in the family'.

    IVF/ICSI here after years of fertility with 12 IUI's and 2 failed IVF's we conceived our son 3 years ago, then decided to try again for one more and on the first try with IVF/ICSI conceived our girls. We have twins on both sides of the family as well and feel truly blessed to be adding 2 more.
