While many couples are happy to become pregnant with one child, there has been an increase in the number of people who have been looking to become pregnant with twins. There are a number of reasons that twins may be preferable for couples. Some may feel as though having two children at a time is easier because they will not have to go through two separate occurrences of giving birth.

Others may be looking to have twins because they are older and want to have more than one child. Whatever the reason, this has left many couples looking for a magic pill to help them become pregnant with twins.

1. Does one exist?

Unfortunately, a magic pill to make sure that you become pregnant with twins does not exist. However, there are some natural things that can help increase your chances. For example, some women come from a family that has twins in the family line. This will help increase the woman’s chance of having twins.

Other-factors-that-could-help-are-being-a-little-overweight-and-somewhat-olderOther factors that could help are being a little overweight and somewhat older. Both of these factors have shown to be helpful in raising the chances of having twins. Having a large family has also shown to increase the odds as well. However, there are things that you should consider when you are relying on these methods to increase your chances of having twins. For example, sometimes it is more difficult to become pregnant if you are overweight and older. Also, there are potential health risks related with weight, being older and having multiple children.

2. Medications that will help

There are some supplements and medications that can help increase a woman’s chances of becoming pregnant with twins. Fertility drugs and treatments have shown to raise the chances of conceiving twins dramatically. Because drugs and treatments often go hand in hand, it becomes important that the numbers of eggs that are released are increased.

When the numbers of eggs that are released are increased in numbers, there is a greater chance that more than one will be fertilized during the conception process. However, it may be difficult for women without a medical issue to find a treatment facility to prescribe them the medication unless there is a medical reason to do so.


For those who are not able to receive a prescription or treatment to help them become pregnant with twins, there are some supplements that can help as well. Vitex is a popular supplement that has been shown to increase the chances of conceiving twins, especially if the woman is already at a higher risk of having them to begin with.

There are also a number of over the counter options that will help improve the reproductive health of a woman and help her to increase the number of eggs that she is releasing when she ovulates. If more than one of these eggs becomes fertilized, it is likely that she will conceive twins rather than a single baby.

vitamins, pills and tablets


Cassava has also been known to help women become pregnant with twins and is responsible for a great number of twin births among the Yoruba tribe in Africa. The women of this tribe have the greatest number of twins born in the entire world. Researchers have narrowed down the cause of this to their diets.

One of the main portions of their diet is the Cassava tube plant. This is similar to a yam and has many nutrients that help increase the chances that a woman has of becoming pregnant with twins. For this reason, many women have decided to add yams to their diet in order to increase their chances of having twins.

3. Conclusion

Although there is no magic pill to make sure that you will become pregnant with twins, there are ways to increase your chances. However, it is important that you consider the risks involved if you do become pregnant with twins because most women are considered a high risk pregnancy.

There is a greater risk that there will be complications throughout the pregnancy or when the time comes to give birth. There is also a greater chance that the mother will need to have a C-Section when giving birth as well. Looking for ways to increase your chances of having twins is possible, but it may be a good idea to talk it over with your doctor first.
