How Often Are Twins Born?


Twins are born more often than most people think. In the United States, thirty-four out of every 1,000 births are multiple births. Out of these thirty-four births, 95% of them are twins. Older women, those between 35 and 39, are more likely to conceive twins than younger women. If a woman has already given birth to twins, she has a four times higher chance of having another set of twins. When the fertility drug Clomid is used, the chance of having twins is 1 in 10.
