|Can Set Of Twins Have Different Fathers? by Tunjman(m): 3:47pm On Jul 03, 2012|
I was amazed when someone told me it's possible for set of twins to have different fathers. I argued it out that it can't be since it is only an egg that can be released in a cycle and once this egg is fertilized, there will be no room for ovulation (which is the only period eggs are released) till the baby is born.
However, i was asked to google HETEROPATERNAL SUPERFECUNDATION and see what it means. truly, i did and found out that it is possible in animals and it is the result of hyperovulation in mammals.
Can doctors in the house shed more light on this.

I read about HETEROPATERNAL SUPERFECUNDATION on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superfecundation and find out that it's possible, not only possible it has happened before http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1378184/Woman-discovers-twins-sons-DIFFERENT-fathers-The-Maury-Show.html
