Fraternal twins. Fraternal twins can be the same gender too, but since they are produced from two eggs from the mother, they are not identical.

Fraternal twins come from the fertilization of two different eggs. It can cause them to look almost the same, but they could just as easily be totally different, even different genders. Identical twins come from the splitting of only one fertilized egg, making them look exactly the same and they will always be the same gender.

What is the difference between dizygotic twins and monozygotic twins?

Why can fraternal twins be dirrerent genders but identical twins are always the same gender?

Fraternal twins are created by two different sperm fertilizing two different eggs. Because of this, one egg could be fertilized by a sperm with an X chromosome, the other by a sperm with a Y chromosome. Identical twins are created by a fertilized embryo splitting into two early in development and are therefore genetically identical in all aspects, including inheritance of the same sex chromosomes.

If two people are not twins is it possible to conceive twins?

Do you mean can individuals who arent twins conceive twins?Yes they can.Monozygotic twin factor chances are largely unknown.However with dizygotic twins, studies suggest that women with a family history may be more predisposed to twinning. Also women over the age of thirty, of a west African descent, larger women, women who have already beared children, those on fertility drugs and carnivorous women are all more likely to bear dizygotic twins.There are two different ways a twin can occur:Monozygotic twins: These are often referred to as "identical twins". This occurs when one egg is fertilised and then divides in to two embryos. They have nearly identical DNA.Dizygotic twins: Often called "non identical" or "fraternal", this occurs when two eggs are fertilised and develop in to embyros. Apart from their age and their prenatal development, they can be very different genetically, be different genders, etc.
