  • Twins cannot be coerced. Unless you get fertility treatments. You are either prone to them by family, simple freak of nature occurrence or you happen to be fat and older and that causes a freak of nature occurrence. Otherwise, no can do.

  • if you want identical then you're out of luck cause that only happens by chance...fraternal twins you can increase the chances by taking fertility meds

  • I don't really think there are any ways to increase your chances of having twins... unless you have fertility treatments. But I can tell you from experience, twins are A LOT of work. My twins are 6 weeks old and everyone is always telling me "Oh, that is so cool... I want to have twins so bad..." and stuff like that and I can tell you from experience... yeah, twins may be cute and all but I wouldn't wish this stress or sleep deprivation on anyone. LOL. I mean, don't get me wrong ... I love my babies with all my heart... but it's definitely not all fun and games! Plus, I already had a 2 yr old and a 4 yr old ... so yeah, it's REALLY hard and REALLY stressful at times, especially if you already have older kids.

  • In order to have twins, you have to release multiple eggs at once, which most women do not do.. Or you can receive fertility treatments. There is nothing that you can take to naturally increase your chances.

  • Invetro, but that often causes multiples like 4-6-or-8 babies as well.
