Is it true that if you take 2 folic acid a day you have better chance at getting twins?

I dont know, but if you overdose on it, it's harmful to you and your fetus.

No, that was a fallacy that was disproven.

All the studies that have been done show there is now increase of twins. A lot of things you read about taking this or doing that is not true at all and can be dangerous.

As far as I know folic acid can contribute to healthy egg follicles, but your chances of twins stay the same as before.

I just found an interesting study online that showed that IVF women who where taking folic acid during treatment had a higher instance of multiple pregnancy. They determined that if you are taking 100% of your daily allowance (800mcg) and there are more embryos present (usually 3 in the case of IVF) they have more chance of a chance of successfully implanting. Taking more than 800mcg did not have any more of an impact.
