Married couple find out they are biological twins
A married couple who were struggling to conceive were revealed to be biological twins after a routine DNA test at a fertility clinic raised
The man and woman, who cannot be named for confidentiality reasons, were hoping to try IVF but the lab assistant noticed an abnormal similarity
between their DNA profiles.
A doctor at the clinic in Jackson, Mississippi - who also cannot be named - revealed the astonishing events to the local newspaper and explained how
the situation had come about.
"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," he told the Mississippi Herald.
His first reaction was that they might be first cousins - until he noted there were far too many similarities in their DNA results.
