I'm a twin myself, but my mom wasn't taking anything, and she never had m/s. I got pg this time on clomid. I haven't had an u/s yet, but I doubt I'll have twins. My doc told me that starting clomid before CD 5 increases your chance of multiples up to 20% (depending on the dose and why you're taking it). Starting it after day 5 only helps mature eggs that have already been released, so your chance is 2% or less. Overall, it's around 5% for anyone taking clomid, because there are a variety of reasons it's used. I was already ovulating, but I have a LPD, so I m/c every time. The clomid didn't work, so I was started on prometrium as soon as my temp dropped on CD 22.
