Conjoined twins are identical twins born with physical bodies that are joined together. They can be joined in a variety of ways, with some parts of their bodies being fused and organs being shared. Treatment for conjoined twins depends on the type of connection and organs involved. However, Are There Any signs or Symptoms That could Indicate You Are Having Conjoined Twins as a pregnant woman?
According to Mayoclinic, There are no specific symptoms that indicate a woman is pregnant with conjoined twins. It is only during the ultrasound scan that conjoined twins can be detected. A pregnant woman needs to have regular ultrasound scans to detect any abnormalities. It is also important to note that conjoined twins cannot be detected until the later stages of pregnancy. Early detection is key in providing the best care and outcomes for babies.
What are the Causes of Identical twins (monozygotic twins)?
Identical twins (monozygotic twins) occur when a single fertilized egg splits into two separate embryos. This means that the twins share the same genetic material and are always of the same sex. Identical twins are a result of the random division of an embryo, which occurs shortly after fertilization. The exact cause of this division is unknown, but it is thought to be influenced by environmental factors such as nutrition and stress.
What are the Complications of being Pregnant with conjoined twins
Depending on the type of conjoined twins, the health of both babies can be at risk. In some cases, surgical separation may be possible, but carries a high risk of mortality and morbidity. Parents should discuss the risks and benefits of surgery with their healthcare provider.
Is it possible to separate conjoined twins?
Yes, according to Cleveland Clinic, in some cases conjoined twins can be separated. However, this is a complex and risky procedure and is not always possible due to the physical connection of the twins. The decision to separate them is made on a case-by-case basis, weighing the risks and benefits of the surgery.
