I am of age 29, I want to conceive naturally for healthy and normal triplets or twins, is it possible, it will be my first pregnancy
The chance of twins after natural conception is approximately 2 in 100 pregnancies. The change of triplets is less than 1 in 6,000 pregnancies. If you use fertility pills, these rates increase to 1 in 10 twins and less than 1 in 100 triplets. If you use fertility injections, these rates increase to 1 in 4 twins and almost 1 in 20 triplets or quadruplets.
