Dear Sweets 2606

The question of multiples is one that requires serious consideration. It may be exciting to have twins but it could be problematic when the numbers are more than two. The use of any ovulation induction agents, i.e CLOMID or equavilent, or the use of injectables, can lead to multiple pregnancies. However, I would advise against the indiscriminate use of such medication since they are not without complications. Such therapy is best undertaken at a fertility centre.
Should you lend up with a multiple pregnancy in excess of two; ie triplets or even quads, it is possible, though not favoured, to do what is called selective fetal reduction. This is done at between 10-12 weeks of pregnancy. Selected fetal reduction poses numeral ethical issues and I would strongly ask you to refrain from getting into such a situation.
