Abortion...

July 2011 I was raped and ended up pregnant; my husband and I talked about it and decided to have an abortion for many reasons. In sept we had it done and right away I felt a combination of guilt and relief.

A few short months later I found out I was pregnant again, with twins.

There are no twins in either of our families; is it because of the abortion? I was always too embarrassed to ask the doctor but I am curious to know if it caused me to start releasing multiple eggs at a time.

I have no idea really, but my guess is no. Congrats on your pregnancy.

Twins can happen completely at random. You have more of a chance of conceiving after abortion or miscarriage and there have been several instances I've discovered that the pregnancies are twins. I am so sorry that you have had to go through that. Congratulations though on your babies.
