Yes, it has been found that a few medications increase the chances of you getting pregnant with twins or multiples. At the same time though, there may be a few side effects that you should be aware of. Talking to your doctor will help you find out the safest drug for you to increase your chances of getting pregnant with twins.

Clomiphene

Clomiphene works to stimulate the production of the luteinizing hormone and the follicle-stimulating hormone. These in turn work to stimulate the maturation of the ovarian follicle. It is the ovarian follicle that contains the egg.

This drug is prescribed especially for those who suffer with ovulation disorders such as polycystic ovarian syndrome. However, this drug is safe even for normal fertility issues. If the infertility is not explained, this drug may be prescribed.

When your menstrual cycle begins, you should take this medication for days continuously. The pill is taken orally. Weight gain, depression, blurred vision, fatigue, stomach pain, headaches, and swollen ovaries are some of the side effects of this drug. If you take this drug, you have ten percent chances of getting pregnant with twins.

Metformin

Metformin is given to bring down the levels of insulin in the body to a normal level. This case is usually with polycystic ovarian syndrome, and the drug is given so that ovulation occurs. Once the insulin levels come down to normal, the couple can try getting pregnant naturally or choose another fertility treatment. Mild nausea, weakness, muscle pain, headache, vomiting, gas, and diarrhea are some of the side effects.

Gonadotropins

These drugs stimulate the ovary and not the hormones as in case of clomiphene. This drug is mainly for women with luteal phase defect, PCOS, or those who will shortly be going through an assisted reproductive technology treatment. This drug may also be prescribed if clomiphene does not work for you.

You should take this medication for about twelve days since the start of your menstruation. These drugs are injected and not taken orally. Side effects include weight gain, bloating, fluid retention, and abdominal tenderness. The chances of getting pregnant with twins are much higher, about forty percent, with gonadotropins.

Bromocriptine

This is for women suffering with ovulation problems caused because of a tumor in the master gland, the pituitary gland. This medication is available as a pill and should be taken either vaginally or orally based on convenience.

The medication needs to be taken for at least a few months so that the levels of prolactin come to normal. Once they do, ovulation begins normally and couple can try getting pregnant. Headaches, fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, and dizziness are among the common side effects of this drug. However, success rates of pregnancy are higher too.
