    If you are looking to conceive twins or more, here are some certain factors and medical treatments that might increase the possibility:

    1. Consume dairy products: According to research, eating dairy products is correlated to multiple pregnancies. Women who consume dairy have five times more chances to produce twins than women who do not consume these products.
    2. Eat wild yams: Wild yams hyper-stimulate the ovaries, resulting in the release of more than one egg for ovulation. It will therefore, increase your chances of producing twins. African women have better chances for twins because they consume it as a part of their ethnic diet.
    3. Have your partner eat zinc rich foods: Foods rich in zinc like green, leafy vegetables, oysters, bread and seeds stimulate sperm production. It therefore improves the probability of fertilizing more than one egg.READ ALSO: Nollywood Actress Rita Dominic Drops Gorgeous Pre-Wedding Photos With Fidelis Anosike Ahead Of Their Weekend Nuptials
    4. Stop birth control pills: Birth control pills play a pivotal role in helping you conceive twins naturally. When you stop taking birth control pills, your body takes some time to find its natural rhythm. It causes the body to have a higher hormone flux than normal. If you try conceiving around this time, there will be a greater chance of having twins.
    5. Fertility drugs: Medications designed to increase fertility typically work by boosting the number of eggs produced in a woman’s ovaries. If more eggs are produced, it’s also likely that more than one can be released and fertilized. This occurs at the same time, causing fraternal twins.
    6. Family history: If both you and your partner have a history of multiples in your family, your chances of conceiving twins is higher. This is especially true for women who have fraternal twins in their family. This is because they are more likely to have inherited the gene that makes them release more than one egg at a time.
    7. Age: Women who are over 30 – especially women who are in their late 30s, have a greater chance of having twins. That’s because they are more likely to release more than one egg during ovulation than younger women. Also, mothers between the ages 35 and 40 who already have given birth have a higher chance of conceiving twins.
