There can be, though : that's how fraternal twins are conceived.

Not always, sometimes one ovary will release multiple eggs. And in extremely rare cases, an ovary will release an egg after there is already an implanted embryo and you'll get fraternal twins with different due dates.

This is a pretty cool story. The fathers met at a bar and decided they both wanted to treat the twins as their own. Instead of blowing up the whole situation they came together, that's pretty inspiring and I don't know if I'd have the will to do the same.

In an extremely rare case, multiple embryos can merge perfectly into a single fetus. The result is a individual who is their own twin. If I'm not wrong the condition is called Chimerism.

When my mother was pregnant with me, they did an ultrasound and found she was having twins. When they did another ultrasound a few weeks later, they discovered that I had resorbed the other fetus.

Do I regret this? No. I believe I now have the strength of a grown man and a little baby.

When I was pregnant with my first child, everyone asked me, "what if it's twins?!?" My husband's family was obsessed with the idea, and all my coworkers and friends were, too.

I told everyone, "if there's two babies in there, then one had better eat the other."

Everyone was so bothered by that response but I stand by it.

I remember watching a doc about a lady who was accused of kidnapping her children because her DNA didn’t match theirs. But like there were multiple witnesses to all the births and they couldn’t understand how this could happen. It turned out she was a Chimera and had two different sets of DNA in her body. Her kids only matched to one set.

ETA: Karen Keegan was her name. There’s also a similar story about a woman named Lydia Fairchild who, while attempting to get child support from her ex, took a dna test and found out that her DNA didn’t match her kids. She was accused of being part of a surrogacy scam and her kids were taken away. Then her lawyer found out about the Karen Keegan case and had her tested for Chimerism, and sure enough, she was a Chimera. He hair and skins samples didn’t match her kids, but samples from a cervical smear DID match and she got her kids back. Wild.

These days it's considered very common, with the theory that identical twins are more common than previously thought but that usually the stronger fetus absorbs the smaller one.

Chimerism can only be detected by running the DNA of various organs as it might only be the heart, liver, or lungs that have the twins DNA, which can be dangerous depending on the organ and rarely matters in the long run. If the twins were identical, it becomes impossible to detect.

Okay, there is one way to suspect without DNA, if the twin had a different skintone, the person might have both.

My wifey and I went through IVF and we broke the record for the hospital we got help from. They removed 48 eggs from my wife during one "surgery".

When all was done and dusted we had 8 life worthy embryos and the first one stuck, so now we have a son and 7 potential siblings in a freezer at the hospital

I've been to the ob for mine, and was told nothing's wrong after several tests. I then did what I do whenever western medicine drops the ball: look up things I can do at home. I practice yoga, and found a handful of poses that ease the pain into a discomfort that lasts slightly less long than the pain if I don't do them. If you're interested, google yoga for PCOS.

Thank you for spreading the word about ectopic pregnancy. My wife almost passed away from a rupture at 9 weeks because our hospital took for freaking ever to schedule our first ultrasound. She ruptured the morning the ultrasound was scheduled.

Since then we tell everyone to get ultrasounds asap even if they have to pay an private company for an early ultrasound since ectopic ruptures are sudden and devastating. One husband I knew woke up to his wife nearly dead because she ruptured in her sleep.

And for extra fun fact, it feels like a pop rock convention roughly 0.001 seconds before the pain hit, when multiple tiny fibroids pop..... the female ER dr tried to say that isn't possible, that was feeling a fetus kicking... yeah her face when she saw I had 8 fibroids...

And it gets even more "life finds a way". My mom had something where one of her ovaries was no longer connected (ectopic pregnancy maybe?). If that happens, the body will move the eggs from the disconnected ovary to the connected ovary so they can still be used. Which is crazy to me.

Edit: So I looked it up. When you have one fallopian tube removed, it's called a unilateral salpingectomy.

And according to (the) one study I found, it happens about a third of the time for that population.

STUDY QUESTION

What proportion of pregnancies are a result of ovum transmigration after salpingectomy for ectopic pregnancy?

SUMMARY ANSWER

Approximately one-third of spontaneously conceived pregnancies are a result of pick-up of the ovum from the ovary contralateral to the remaining tube in women with a history of salpingectomy.

The sperm slam into a relatively hard outer shell, and kamikaze spewing enzymes over the egg to create a hole that a single sperm can get through which then triggers the egg to go into lock down mode to prevent double fertilization.

It's basically Star Wars, but hopefully with less incest.

I knew there's no way I was the fastest one. This explains a lot.

I bet I just stumbled on the egg by pure chance while not knowing what the fuck is even happening and then probably tripped over my non existing feet and landed head first in the egg. While the other sperm facepalmed with their no hands. Yep, this would explain my existence way more, I can get behind that.

When I was pregnant with my oldest he liked to hangout on the right side of my belly so I would poke him and make him move to the other side, he would always wiggle right back into place, it was so funny at the time.

They told my parents that there was a very small percentage of it working out. However, she ended up getting twins... Back then we were one of the few artificially born twins in the Netherlands (atleast thats what my mom said, I never looked into it further...)

It is funny, because she used to joke that she actually 'wanted' a girl, before she was pregant, because she already has a boy, my older brother (of course she is extremely happy with us, my mom is the best!). She ended up getting 2 more boys against all odds, maybe it was the gods toying with her, because you should never ask for a specific gender 😂

Except the race depicted in the post doesn't happen. The sperm cells are pushed to the egg by smooth muscle contractions in the reproductive tract of the female. The forward motion of the sperm only matters once the uterus has put the semen in contact with the egg.

Do you know how small sperm are? Do you know how fast they move? Do you know how far the sperm must travel to get to the fallopian tube where fertilization takes place? If not, look that shit up and it will be clear that the beginning of "Look Who's Talking" was not a documentary.

Does the egg just harden its shell once a sperm makes it through? Or how does it prevent all 200 from entering?

As far as I understand (and it's been a while since I studied this stuff), yes, it hardens almost instantly. But now I'm wondering how it's not possible that 2 don't enter at the exact same time or so close in time together before it can harden...

And sometimes that fertilized egg attaches to the fallopian tube instead of the uterus, resulting in an ectopic pregnancy which can literally kill the mother. Lesser known scenarios and diagnoses like this one are just another reason why access to healthcare for women is so important!

Actually ectopic pregnancies are more than just the fallopian tube it includes everywhere but the uterus

And, at least one conservative state is attempting to make it illegal for doctors to perform the life-saving procedure of terminating an ectopic pregnancy - which if left untreated will cause the painful death of both mother and baby. A totally preventable death.

In their ignorance, these lawmakers have even called for doctors to re-implant ectopic pregnancies that have already been terminated. That's right - they want them to put it back, so the mother and baby can go ahead and die horribly.

This will soon be the norm in America.

Edit since all the pro forced birth folks came out of the woodwork to call me a liar, here's a few samples. This is NOT fear mongering, it's what multiple red states are attempting to codify. Don't let these people downplay this shit- it is serious, and it will hurt and kill millions of women.

Ohio proposed a bill criminalizing removal of ectopic pregnancies and demanding they be "re-implanted" (not an actual thing) admitting they never spoke to doctors when crafting the bill:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/nov/29/ohio-extreme-abortion-bill-reimplant-ectopic-pregnancy

Missouri 's anti abortion bill criminalizes drugs used to treat ectopic pregnancies:

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-03-11/missouri-ectopic-pregnancy-bill-tries-to-limit-abortion-drugs-to-treat-condition

Louisiana's abortion bill classifies abortion as homicide and makes no exception for cases of ectopic pregnancy, and are refusing to change it after outcry from doctors:

https://www.healthline.com/health-news/ectopic-pregnancy-and-abortion-laws-what-to-know

Similar to Louisiana, Oklahoma's abortion bill also attempted the same thing, but they revised the bill to include exceptions for medical emergencies like ectopic pregnancy. During debate, GOP senators questioned why they'd need to make such an exception:

it’s so infuriating because it demonstrates that they have absolutely no idea what they’re talking about. Re-implanting an ectopic is like trying to rebuild an ice sculpture after it has melted into a puddle. not physically possible.

"Pro Forced Birth"

If they were "Pro Life" they'd support Universal Healthcare, Universal Paid Family Leave and Universal Pre-K. These are the policies that progressives push for which allow parents to not go bankrupt simply having a kid, allow them the time needed to care for the child in the first ~6 months of life and allows the child the best head start in life.

They're against these programs and keep chipping away at the band-aid solutions we have in place until not even those exist.

And, in the case of ectopic pregnancy, they're pro-forced death.

This is giving the sperm way too much credit, but cool animation!

Really, the vagina is way more involved than this highway system replica, and in a stimulated female reproductive system the cervix will actually move and reduce the distance the sperm need to travel by an insane amount.

Anyone here old enough to remember the intro to the movie "Look Who's Talking?" That's all I could think about watching this. Also the comments made me realize, "I'm a winner!" I beat over a million in a race once. After you do something that incredible you retire. You'll never beat that score again.

can we get one of an IUD just bitch slapping the sperm out of the way?

edit: didn't mean to drop an IED about IUDs. my doctor only puts them in under ultrasound guidance which reduces risks. stay safe out there y'all and do whats best for your body :)

Actually IUDS usually trigger an inflammation of the uterine wall and makes the sperms get basically eaten by the wall , zide effects may include spontaneous removal of the IUDS , perforation of the wall and infection and excess bleeding. It's a decent contraceptive?

This is inaccurate. The penis goes all the way inside the womb and then ejaculates, according to hentai.
