I love kids, but I hate pregnancy. How can I get pregnant with multiples (not IVF though)? Any ways that are pretty solid?

Here's another theory for twins, but something that came out of a Wiccan Proverb:



Follow the lunar cycles. The Goddess of Fertility gifts upon thee a double blessing...twins. Chart the lunar cycles and track them with ovulation. When your ovulation and lunar cycles coincide, there's an excellent chance for twins.

That's a good point, Elfrieda. It's pretty difficult with just one... I've heard sometimes two isn't any worse, but you won't know until you're in that situation.

I think twins run in families. (at least fraternal ones) Either you release multiple eggs at once or you don't. Personally, I think pregnancy would be way worse with two of them in there.

I don't believe there is a way to purposely get pregnant with twins unless you use IVF. Fraternal twins usually have to run in the family meaning your body naturally produces two eggs at a time during a cycle and both get fertilized. I would not be surprised if the place in Africa with lots of twins is from inbreding long ago and therefore runs in families. Identical twins is caused from one egg splitting and tends to be a flukey thing that no one can make happen. Sorry to break the news to you but the likelihood is very small unless doing IVF or taking fertility drugs that cause you to produce more than one egg a cycle (even then chances are still small).

Identical twins are from a temp change during conception, so cool down your vagina the day after having sex. Use some ice or chill a dildo. For fraternal, just lie and say you're trying to lose weight and get a prescription for metformin. That'll boost your chances a lot! So will going onto BC pills for a couple months - the month after you come off them your chances of twins at least doubles.
