A doctor at a fertility clinic was forced to make a startling revelation to a couple seeking treatment at the center.
The couple, who cannot be named to due to patient confidentiality restrictions, had been struggling to conceive and came to the clinic to take part in the in vitro fertilization (IVF) process.
After performing routine DNA tests, the doctor discovered the couple were actually biological twins. The fertility doctor informed the pair that they were biological twins after he noticed the striking similarities in their DNA.

The physician told the local paper,
During the in vitro fertilization process, we take a DNA sample from both the male and female to get a profile of their genetic backgrounds. 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.
The doctor continued,
However, looking closer at the samples, I noticed there were way too many similarities. With this in mind, I was convinced that both patients were fraternal twins.
The siblings had been tragically separated at a young age after their biological parents died and they were adopted into different families, both not knowing about the other. After the doctor informed the husband and wife that they were related, the pair tried to put together the pieces of their lives.
They realized their parents both died in a car accident and due to a filing error when they were adopted by other families, the adoption parents were never told about their child’s other sibling.
The pair unknowingly reunited while attending college and they quickly bonded over their strikingly similar backgrounds and fell in love. Now, with the weight of this news on their shoulders, the couple is reportedly considering the future of their relationship.
The doctor told the local taboloid,
I really hope they can work something out. For me, it’s a particularly unusual case because my job is all about helping couples conceive a child. This is the first time in my career that I’ve been glad I haven’t succeeded in that regard.
