Question
What are the chances of twins while taking 50mg vlomid with no fertility issues?

Answer
The overall risk of twins on Clomid is about 5-15%, depending on where you get your information, which is definitely higher than the 1-3% risk in the general population.  I am not aware of any specific studies on the use of Clomid in women without fertility issues.

Experience

I have bgg triplets born in 1999 and three more boys born in 2002, 2006, and 2008, the last two by VBA2C (vaginal birth after 2 cesareans). My triplets were born at 26 weeks. My singletons were all full-term and fully breastfed. We have raised our triplets with no help and with a blind father. One of our triplets is also disabled with mild CP and mild autism, two have some vision problems, and one has had lung issues since birth.
