It has been reported that a couple who have been struggling to conceive, have been told the reason they have not been successful is that they are actually biological twins.
The couple who cannot be named, went through a routine DNA test at a fertility clinic where they were hoping to then try IVF, a process where the woman’s egg is combined with the mans sperm outside the body before placing an embryo back inside the woman.
During the pre-checks, the lab assistant at the clinic in Jackson, Mississippi noticed that the DNA profiles were rather similar.
“It’s just a routine thing and we wouldn’t normally check to see if there was a relationship between the two samples, but in this case the lab assistant involved was shocked by the similarity of each profile,” an unnamed doctor told the Mississippi Herald.
When they were asked by the doctor if they were twins, they laughed and thought he was joking. As they had no idea, you can forgive them for thinking it was a wind up.
