ivf c section
I would just like to know - I am going for IVF soon and heard that twins are quite common. I have a son 7 years born by c section -

would it be safe to expect twins if you had a c section - does it not put strain on the wound -( I looked like Oros Man) with my son (Had my tubes tied - now need to have IVF done)

You can have twins if you have had a previous caesarean, but you would have to have another caesarean rather than a normal birth.
