7. The Age Factor
Research reveals that as women get older, they tend to produce greater amounts of the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), which boosts the likelihood of dropping more than one eggs.
However, as women age, their fertility rates also start to decline, so if you’re planning on waiting to get old, keep in mind that it will also reduce your chances of being able to conceive at all.
Hyperovulation occurs when two or more than two eggs are dropped during the process of ovulation. This process can be triggered due to various reasons, including genetics, age, menopause, consuming cassava and various other hormonal changes occurring in the mother’s body.
9. In the Genes
Genetic hyperovulation is the term coined to describe the genetic transfer of the likelihood of conceiving twins if the mother’s side of the family has many twins, she is much more likely to conceive twins herself.
Research reveals that women who breastfeed while they are pregnant tend to have a much greater chance of conceiving twins.
