Multiples from injectable fertility drugs?

I have been told this month I have a really good chance at twins with the 5 follicles I had for my IUI. I'm fine with that, too. After 22 months of TTC, we'd be delighted. But, I wondered how many of you moms with twins or more conceived them with fertility drugs. Should I really be concerned?

Clomid, first cycle, lowest dose--boy/girl twins!

I previously conceived twins with my first son on the lowest dose of clomid, so I think my chance is a little higher since I conceived them before. But, I dunno.

We did injectibles with timed intercourse for our first set of twins. They were actually triplets, but we lost one very early. I had 3 follies for the cycle and we "hit" two of them (we had a set of ID's, one of which we lost) so I would say your chances are VERY high for getting twins or maybe even more with 5 mature follies. Good luck!

Re: Multiples from injectable fertility drugs?

We did IVF, not injectables, but I agree that your chances are higher. BTW- I know they tell you not to test, but if you are having symptoms, go to the Dollar Tree and get some tests. I have always tested well before my blood test ordered by my dr. With my singleton, I found out about 4 days before. But, with my 2nd transfer, I got a positive way before that (I just can't remember exactly). We don't know if that was twins or not because I lost the babies before the 7wk u/s to determine, but I think it was twins. With my twins, I took a Dollar Tree test only 5 days after my transfer and it was positive. I would have been 8DPO (I guess if you add the 3 days they let the baby grow after putting the egg and sperm together). So, I'd say, test away. I personally wanted to know before they told me. Either way, I wanted to find out in private with either just me or just me and my DH.

With my twins, one of the biggest things I noticed was early onset of my symptoms.

5 mature follicles!?!?!?! Whoa, nellie! I'd say your chances are GOOD for having multiples. I had two mature follicles in the cycle we "won" and I have fraternal twin boys.

The RE I went to refuses to continue any cycle that produces more than three follicles because of the risk of HOM.
