The chance of having non-identical twins can run through genetics or be affected by the age of the mother. So the more people in your family tree that have twins, the more likely you are to have twins. However, twins can occur by chance, to someone who's family tree has no cases of twins, or from IVF. You do not have to have twins in your family line to give birth to twins. The chance of having identical twins is 1 in 285 in all human genetic groups.

No. Identical twins are identical. Fraternal twins are not.

In identical twins, the DNA is identical, which is what makes them identical. In Fraternal twins it is not.

Some twins are identical twins, other are not identical twins. Identical twins develop from a single fertilized egg that subsequently splits into two zygotes. Non-identical twins, also called fraternal twins, develop from two different fertilized eggs.

yes, absolutely! Non-identical twins have a tendancy to be hereditary on your mother's side of the family. So for a female if your mother or mother's mother had non-identical twins there is a highler likelihood you might. Still, many twins don't have twins, and many people who aren't a twin do have twin. The increase in IVF has increase the number of multiple births in recent decades.

Twins are identical because they come from the same egg.

If they were not then they would not be called identical twins!

Yes, they are identical twins, monozygotic twins, born ten minutes apart. They share the same genome, they are identical genetically, they are identical twins.

From what i know, if your twins are identical then you have no increased chance of having twins a second time. If your twins are fraternal, you are twice as likely to have twins again because fraternal twins are the result of more than egg being released and that is a genetic trate.

Identical twins are created when 1 eggs splits into 2. Conjoined twins are the result of identical twins not separating all the way.

do identical or non identical twins share the same placenta

In the general population, the odds of having twins are about 3 in 100, or 3%. They seem to increase in relations to the mother's history, among other factors, but not the father's history. The odds of having identical twins are not affected by personal history of either parent. Identical twinning is a random event that occurs about 1 in 285, or about 0.35%.

identical twins have the same genes from the same parents. Non identical twins have different genes.

Identical twins. Although horses sometimes have twins I'm not sure if they have identical twins.

Identical twins are formed from a single egg that splits into two. Fraternal twins are formed from two separate eggs that are both separately fertilized. So identical twins have identical DNA, and fraternal twins do not.

Identical twins are formed when one fertilized eggs splits. Non-identical twins are formed when two separate eggs are fertilized.

i personally know a set of identical twins. BOTH of them had twins. i don't know if their twins were identical too.

Some people think identical means all the same. It does. They call identical twins identical twins because the are almost identical. All finger prints are different.

Identical twins have identical genomes. This means several physical traits are expressed in a similar way. This is because they are genetically identical. This is why identical twins have the same eye color

There may be no connection to your odds of having twins and the fact that your uncle is a twin. It depends on whose side of the family the uncle is on. If the uncle is a fraternal twin on your mother's side, then your odds are slightly increased compared to the general population. If the uncle is an identical twin or on your father's side, your odds of having twins are the same as the general population, roughly 1:80.

No. By definition, identical twins are the same sex.
