Are you more likely to have twins if your period was late the month before?

No, you have just as much chance as if you period was early or on time.

You have a greater chance if the mother has twins in her family, but only fraternal twins as identical twins are more of a mutation. A woman needs to inherit the gene for multiple ovulation. Even if the man is a twin himself, his sperm can't make a woman release two eggs.

Fertility treatments are the only way to increase your chances besides luck and hereditary.

I've never heard about that, and to me it doesn't make sense. To have twins you either have to ovulate two eggs, or have one egg split into two, the timing of your period wouldn't affect either! ~pawsalmighty

Yes, my wife missed a period and called to the doctors, after examining her he told her she was 3 month pregnant or having twins, she went for a scan and it turned out she was 3 month pregnant even though she had regular periods before hand, its quite rare but it can happen.

Yes but it is not common, my wife went to the doctors after missing a period and after examining her he said she was either 4 month pregnant or expecting twins. After going for a scan, it turned out she was four month pregnant even though she had three normal periods before hand. five month later she had a beautiful baby girl.

No. Identical twins are born anytime. No specific month.

my aunt had twins but she didnt know until 1 month before they were born exept they were born 4 months too early and died

If you have people in your family that had twins, you are more likely to have twins yourself.

Your period stops whey your in your 40s That's why women in their 30s are more likely to have twins because the ovary's are trying to get rid of eggs.

yes the odds are greater for twins to have twins

I have an identical twin. For me it is no more likely that I will have twins than anyone else because identical twins are just flukes. If you are a non- identical twin and that is because your mother had two eggs, then you may have this too, and it is more likely you will have twins.

if twins run in the family u are more likely to have twins but most likely fraternal because identical twins are just a very unique coincidence

Yes. In fact, twins are more likely to have twins than "non-twins" are.

it can happen but not very often. for example, my ex wife missed a period and went to the doctors, he told her she was 4 month pregnant or expecting twins. it turned out she was 4 month but she had normal periods for the first three. 5 month later, beautiful baby girl.

Most likely yes. She carries the genes for twins and she may have a chance of also getting twins.

Paranoid? It's possible. Slightly. As is the impending Martian invasion.

its not likely that you will have twins then... normally you will not have a chance of having twins unless your mother side of the family has a history of twins it matter if you dads side does or not and also if you are over the age of 35 years old. Most likely if your siblings are twins the there is a possibility that they them selves or their children will have twins..

No. Twins happen randomly, but if there is a high number of twins in the family, you are likely to have twins.

Genetics aren't the only thing to influence when girls start their period. It's entirely possible that one twin starts her period before the other (even if they are identical).

There is no information that has been released on who the twins of Texas are. These cars are likely very similar leading to the title Twins of Texas.

No, I don't think you will show this early. You could show if you were already heavy before the pregnancy. You should show in the third month.
