    I would take a larger dose of vitex for twins. 2 capsules in the morning and two at night or even three. When I conceived my twins I was taking 2/2.

    Here is the link to the wild yam that is sold as a supplement. This may not be the same as the African yam that is said to cause twinning but I do know that many people have taken it in an attempt at twins. Does anyone know of any different wild yam supplement??

    WILD YAM... I saw somethings that said that the root, fruit, leaves, and whatever all have different factors. Cassava Root is the one that people say to use for twins but doesn't say how much to take. Most wild yam does help with cramps and other monthly women pains. Also if taken everyday it can act like the pill.... one site, I can't remember where, but it said to take it with day one with your monthly and all the way until day one of your next monthly and this will cause your body to not release an egg with the first month but increases your chance of releasing 2 eggs.

    I am going to take it in late May but need to figure out how much to take. I may just wing it and take some 2 times a day since that is when I take all my vitamins.

    Like Purplepoet says, it's the Cassava Root that is alleged to cause twinning, but I can only find it mixed with Vitamin C as a supplement. They carry it at Amazon.

    I have to admit I would love to have twins esp.GG twins. I sometimes joke to DH that being pg 7 times already and with my/our age increases the chances of it happening..... I think it gets him a bit worried. lol

    CLOMID - This is the one surefire way to up your chance of twins, but you do need a doctor's prescription for it. You should NEVER buy Clomid online or use another person's Clomid, you need to be monitored by a doctor while you use it because serious, life threatening side effects may occur. (Clomid does sway pink)

    GENETICS - Some of us just have a genetic tendency to hyperovulate and pop out more than one egg per month. If your mother, sister, aunts, or grandmother has fraternal twins, that means you just naturally have a greater chance of twins.

    PREVIOUS PREGNANCY - The more times you've been pregnant, the higher your chances of twins!

    PREVIOUS MULTIPLE PREGNANCY - If you've conceived multiples before, you're more likely to do so again.

    AGE - After age 35 the rate of twins begins to rise. Women over 45 have 17% chance of twins, but of course it's extremely difficult to get pregnant at that age for most of us. Realistically, between ages 35-40 are your best shot for actually conceiving twins.

    PHYSICAL SIZE - Tall women and those with a BMI over 30 are more likely to conceive twins.

    DIET - Being well-nourished and even slightly overweight ups your chances of twins. Also, diets high in beef and dairy products may increase the odds of twins due to hormones present in cattle.

    SOY - Taking soy isoflavones, 200 mg from CD 3-7, total of 5 days, may help to sway for twins. It acts as a natural Clomid. (may sway blue, because it does increase CM, but if you take antihistamines to dry up your CM you may get the benefits from the soy of releasing more than one egg, you may still be able to incorporate soy into a pink sway as well as a blue one.)

    VITEX - Vitex from AF-O may sway for twins. (sways pink) However, some researchers believe that it may actually PREVENT twins. (I did conceive twins while taking vitex so I happen to know that isn't the case in all circumstances.)

    FOLIC ACID - Scientists used to believe there was a link between Folic Acid intake in the three months prior to conception and twinning. Now it is believed that high Folic Acid intake simply helps twin pregnancies to both successfullly survive and thrive. Most twin conceptions are lost very early in pregnancy and by having ample Folic Acid in our bodies, we help our twins to both survive.

    BREASTFEEDING - Getting pregnant while breastfeeding increases your odds of twins.

    BIRTH CONTROL PILLS - Getting pregnant on the Pill increases your odds of twins, but no one should go onto the birth control pill for this reason. Getting pregnant on the pill may not be safe for your babies. But, if you get pregnant your first month off the Pill, you may still be more likely to conceive twins that month.

    WILD YAM - Much has been made of this supplement because Africans who eat a lot of yams have more twins. I have read that the "wild yam" that is sold in supplements are not the same yams at all (and in fact may act as a birth control pill reducing your chances of twins!!). The yams at the grocery store aren't the same either. So eat a lot of yams if you like them, but this may not be effective.
    I would be pushing for twins myself if these things really increase the chances. My mom is a twin,i have had 6 kids so far ,im overwight.I always take folic,im well nourished,im breastfeeding and im 35 lol

    You can take up to 3 in the morning and 3 at night (but doublecheck on your bottle because each brand has a different formulation.)

    I am AMAZED that one Vitex a day affected your cycle so dramatically. Most people take more than that.

    Sorry to be a Debby Downer, but after working in a pediatric hospital with a high level NICU, I do not want twins. Yes, they are adorable. Yes, if you & both babies survive, you get a 2 for 1 deal. Yes, there are successful, healthy twin pregnancies, but it still is a huge risk for both babies & mother. I used to think triplets, quads, etc. were high risk, but I now understand how high-risk even twins are.

    NPR has a great article today about this. So please read up on the risks before taking steps to actively try for twins (although darn-it, all the matching clothes are cute!).
