Fertile But Want Twins Here S A Way UNDER MEDICAL OBS

I am considering egg donation, since we're not quite ready to continue our family just yet. Was doing some reasearch about it all, and I read that for the cycle AFTER the donation (Where they generate and extract approx 5-15 eggs average) you have an increased chance of multiples if you were to fall pregnant in that cycle (The one after extraction) During the process, ovulation is suppressed for about 2 weeks, then you're given GonalF (A stronger than clomid fertility drug) or another one which is the same (Name escapes me) UNDER MEDICAL OBSERVATION. Then you're given an hCG shot to release the eggs, and about 36 hours later the eggs are extracted ready for the donor recipient. You're not given any further drugs after that, but your body may be tricked into thinking (for one more cycle) that this is what it should be doing, so you would be helping an otherwise infertile couple, giving a child(ren) the gift of life and love, and safely increasing the odds of conceiving your own multiples in the next cycle afterward. Egg donation isn't something to be taken lightly, there is alot involved etc and not everyone is 'eligible' to donate, but possibly worthwhile to look into if you -don't mind- taking fertility drugs, but don't want to do it 'illegally' etc (Plus you wouldn't be paying for them anyway) In Australia it is illegal to accept money for Egg Donation, but all of your medical expenses in relation to the ED are paid for

Couldn't that result in *many* fetuses -- because those drugs harvest as many eggs as possible? I don't think anyone wants to end up pregnant with 12 fetuses -- like with the experimental fertility drugs in the 60s.

I doubt it, they ARE generating 5-15 (avg) eggs for the Egg Donation, but this is hot off the tail of suppression then stimulation, and an hCG shot to actually ensure all of the mature follies become released eggs, but the cycle following, there is NO drugs, and NO hCG shot, just the 'possible' remnants of the drug which might encourage 2 eggs to be released instead of one. There's always a chance with Clomid (And even vitex) that more than 2 eggs would be released...
