Like most ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛs, ⒾⓊⒾ carries a ʀɪsᴋ of multiple pregnancy, especially when used in combination with ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴅʀᴜɢs. According to ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ information site Oneatatime, the ʀɪsᴋ of having twins when using ⒾⓊⒾ in combination with hormonal drugs can be as high as 20 per cent. That is due to the fact that multiple eggs can be released from the ovaries in each menstrual cycle, or eggs can divide to form twins.
