I was just sitting here (14w4d pregnant) thinking about my last pregnancy. I conceived twins naturally. my God was me and my husband excited. I was so happy and excited. twins had run in my family but no1 has had twins in a few generations now so we were so happy.

at 13w4d I had pain that felt like contractions and went to ER only to be told they had no heart beat. they measured them at 12w4d. yet in that week I had no bleeding or anything.

what I was wondering is if a Dr could give me something or help us in some way to conceive twins again? I know a lot of couples who have trouble concieving get help and have a higher chance of multiples...but will a Dr help u if u don't have a hard time conciveing?

Of course they will...but it will cost you a fortune.  Honestly, I would just TTC if you watned to have a baby, but the downfall about making more eggs drop for a higher chance of multiples is that you could go way past twins.  I'm so very sorry for your loss...but unless your able to pay for it, I don't know any insurance that covers something like that =/  GL!!  You might even get twins again =D

If you have difficulty concieving you may want to seek a fertility specialist. You could get IUI Intrauterine insemination or IVF In vitro fertilisation. IUI is less expensive than IVF. Both are going to be costly in the thousands up to 20 plus thousand. 

If you went to the ER and they said there was no heartbeat but you haven't bled yet, you should follow up with your OBGYN or Midwife. It takes some bodies longer to expell a loss. (my body takes a full two weeks before I start bleeding). 

I am sorry for your loss.

Every doctor has different policies, but I know mine won't prescribe medication to get multiples unless you can't conceive without it.

I don't have trouble getting pregnant... the lose of my twins was last March and I had a DnC done. I'm currently pregnant again with one baby (healthy thank God) but I feel disappointed or lost because we wanted twins and the chance of getting twins again without help is unlikely... sorry I should have explained better.

There over the counter herbal supplements and other things you could try if you wanted to go that route before talking to a dr about it. The truth is, it varies from office to office. Some will but its costly and not likely covered on any insurance. Some wont at all unless you have infertility issues.

I'm not sure that a doctor could ethically do that.  I'm sorry for your loss.  One of the reasons for the loss may be because it is harder for the body to handle a twin pregnancy and there is a great chance of loss with multiples.  Be thankful for the baby you have the little angels protecting it.

Hi. So sorry to hear about the loss of your twins. I also conceived twins naturally and they are currently 19 months old. I think it would be incredibly expensive to have help from a doctor. I know it is hard but this baby is a blessing and rejoice in that instead of the twins you loss. I don't mean for that to sound harsh. I am 5.5 weeks and not sure if it is one baby or two.
