Trivia quiz for everybody...When a woman is pregnant with fraternal twins did she concieve at two different times or did she have two eggs that cycle and both eggs got spermed?

Well, she still conceived on the same cycle either way. But she could have had two eggs fertilized at the same time or it could happen within her 2 day window. I saw a Maury episode (couldnt sleep one night! lol) where her twins had two different dads bc she slept with one one day and the other the next!!

it could happen both ways

no, fraternal twins are conceived the same way as identical twins. The difference is that fraternal twins. "did she have two eggs that cycle and both eggs got spermed?" ..Yes, and identical twins is one egg seperated into two which makes them identical.

ignore the 'The diffrence is that fraternal twins' in my first post.

Well, it could happen both ways, but it is more common that two eggs got released, and were fertilized. Identical twins are just in the early stage when the egg splits, and that can cause identical twins to be "stuck together" but many are born seperately.

she had two eggs that were both fertilised

She concieved the same cycle, two eggs two sperm. Identicals is one egg one sperm that split in two, only fraternal twins are genetic.

No one really understood her question. Including me ! But what she meant was "CAN YOU CONCIEVE FRANTERNAL TWINS AT DIFFERENT TIMES?" The answer is, yes. When a woman ovulated twice in one cycle it is usually within a 24 hours span . So, one egg will always be fertilized earlier thus making them fertilized at different times!

Emma, I understood that!! Thats why I brought up the Maury episode. She had two eggs and had s_x twice in that fertile window and her twins had different dads!
