Is it possible to NATURALLY have triplets, quadruplets, quintuplets, etc?
Title says it all, haha! I was just wondering (out of curiosity).Koral Alexxis Mattherson.

Yes, I know one set of triplets who were conceived without fertility treatments.
I would imagine the higher numbers of multiples are incredibly rare though.

I came here to say the Dionne Quintuplets! And can we talk about those gorgeous names!

They were celebrities because it was so unheard of. Consider all of the decades that having 6 children wasn't at all surprising, even at that time it was unheard of. Possible, yes, but extremely rare.

Yes, it is possible. My mom has triplet cousins that are turning 70 this year. I've also met a set of triplets born in rural Guatemala, in an area with very limited access to medical care, so it's doubtful the mom was taking fertility treatments.Miriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Alice ~ Veronica ~ SarahPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel
