  • I have never heard of it increasing your chances of twins....I have only heard that it decreases your chances of getting pregnant.

  • If you are taking fertility meds there is always a chance of twins. I am guessing that is why you are asking.

  • If you take a fertility medicine, then it increases your risk, but not just having PCOS

  • Clomid only has a 7% twin rate. I took it four times but did not conceive (I have PCOS). My friend's sister took Clomid the same time as I did and became pregnant with a singleton. It honestly depends on how your ovaries react to the Clomid. When I took it I had tons of follicles growing, but when it was time to ovulate (I had to use a trigger injection) only one was ever mature enough. (They have to be at an 18 or higher to be considered mature, though some doctors claim a 17 is fine.) If you have two or more mature follicles at the time of ovulation or trigger, your chances of twins are higher.
