Is It Possible To Have A Twins With Different Fathers? by Ifabernard(m): 6:22am On Apr 28, 2020
Please I need more clarification on this issue. Its true we learn everyday. May be I should have asked my Biology teacher back then in school but it never crossed my mind. I guess coronavirus is really helping some people to think out of the box. I just want to if there's a possibility of a twins to have different fathers.

I once read it somewhere, really can't explain it tho, but it has to do with a delay in fertilization of the eggs... lemme see if I can get that link.

I don't think it's possible, a sperm fertilizes an egg in an ovary which then spilt into two as a result, hence, twins are formed.

Yea it's called Fraternal twins.

That's the problem with dating women that can't close their legs....

I Had the same mindset...you can also learn too. Just read that its very rare but possible as a result of delay in fertilization. The egg dont have to split bfor you have a twins. Two eggs can fertilize separately.
I stand to be corrected

No sir. Fraternal twins share no striking similarities. say a male and a female twin.

I think fraternal twins results from two seperate fertilization

It's f*cking real dear, ama biologist so I'm telling you what is d fact here. If the person has sex with different individuals within her ovulatory days there are possibilities that both individuals will get her preggie. The twins would be non-identical though and different haemological makeup as per dependent on their fathers.


Lol, I don't know if you get me sha. lol

Yeah, exactly. that's why this is the only condition you can have a twin with different fathers. A egg can never be fertilized by 2 sperm!

So it has to be 2 eggs, 2 sperms within d same ovulating days sha...
Re: Is It Possible To Have A Twins With Different Fathers? by callmeRichie(m): 8:37am On Apr 28, 2020
So that's why they are fraternal... 2 eggs, 2 sperms.
Well-done guys.... #Winks

WRONG! IT IS CALLED SUPERFECUNDATION, FRATERNAL TWINS ARE UN-IDENTICAL TWINS, THAT IS WHEN THE SAME SPERM FERTILISES TWO DIFFERENT EGGS .

Re: Is It Possible To Have A Twins With Different Fathers? by fiercehillz(m): 10:45am On Apr 28, 2020
It is extremely rare but possible...This happens when their is a slight delay in fertilization by a sperm cell from the first dude and then she mates with another individual (in most cases a 3some that involves both dude cumming inside madam)...A sperm cell from each dude fertilizes an egg cell each from the ogberaga babe instead of two sperm cells from a particular dude fertilizing 2 different egg cells from the babe (resulting to fraternal twin).
Re: Is It Possible To Have A Twins With Different Fathers? by Jesuisbelle: 10:49am On Apr 28, 2020
Yes . this is extremely rare and can only happen with FRATERNAL twins. What happens is that the woman ovulates two eggs at the same time (this happens a lot when women come from families with twins). During the two weeks while both eggs are travelling down the fallopian tube, the woman has sex with two different partners. The sperm from one partner reaches one egg and fertilizes it. The sperm from the other partner reaches the other egg and fertilizes that one. Paternity tests will need to be used to determine which baby belongs to which father. The twins may be boy&boy, girl&girl, or boy&girl, but will not be identical - they will fraternal.
Identical twins ALWAYS have the same father, however.
Re: Is It Possible To Have A Twins With Different Fathers? by Omoakin180: 11:00am On Apr 28, 2020
Superfecundation is the fertilization of two or more ova from the same cycle by sperm from separate acts of sexual intercourse, which can lead to twin babies from two separate biological fathers. The term superfecundation is derived from fecund, meaning the ability to produce offspring.
