I am 4 mths pregnant with twins. I am questioning as to weather having twins increases their chances of autism? I got negative results for their down syndrome.etc.. testing.

Hi Debbie,

I am not a doctor so I an not qualified to answer your question. I have never heard anything about twins and autism, though.

I am not sure anyone knows what causes autism.

Best wishes for your pregnancy and enjoy those twins when they arrive! They are such a precious gift.

Many thanks. Susan
