The data of the population-based, prospective survey of multiple births in East Flanders, Belgium, show that a greater proportion of monozygotic twins is observed with clomiphene citrate as sole treatment compared with other ovulatory drugs. Among iatrogenic monozygotic twins, the ratio of monochorionic versus dichorionic pairs is higher compared with spontaneous twins.
