Overview of being pregnant with quadruplets
A multiple pregnancy is when you carry more than one fetus in your uterus at a time. While it’s certainly possible to become pregnant with quadruplets the natural way, it happens far more often during fertility treatments.
Fertility medications that encourage ovulation could trigger the release of several eggs from your ovaries. Plus, the emergence of advanced reproductive technologies (ART), including in vitro fertilization (IVF), has upped the rate of multiple pregnancies. However, doctors have started to limit the number of embryos transferred in order to prevent complications associated with multiple pregnancies.
