365 Days of Twinipedia - Day 17

Day Seventeen of Twinipedia: 

Fact #17
Looking to Conceive twins or multiples?
This is a really interesting fact.  Did you know that there are fewer twin conceptions in the month of January, while there are more in the month of July?


Researchers and scientists are not totally sure why this is the case but some believe that woman may have higher FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) levels in July than in January.  They think this might be because there are longer daylight hours in the month of July and that this additional daylight exposure may have an effective on increased FSH levels in women which can increase egg production in that time frame.  


So I guess if you are looking to conceive twins, Fraternal twins that is since this scenary is about multiple eggs getting produced and fertilized, not a single egg splitting, July is your month! :):):)
