    Factors that increase the risk of having a twin

    Hi! Just wondering if having a twin is hereditary? Because 3 of my cousins have twins and I really wanted to have a twin as well.

    Well, the quick is yes... and no. If the twins are fraternal, then possibly yes, because that might indicate the presence of an inheridated gene for hyperovulation (releasing more than one egg at once.) But identical twins are completely random, so there's the no answer.

    If you want more information about how conceiving twins works... take a peek here for some interesting stuff!

    Oh my cousin gave birth to identical twin. But still I'm hoping to have one soon. Thanks for the link!
