are they identical
Two months ago I gave birth to twin girls.  The ultrasound techs always said they were monozygotic and the pathology report on the placenta said it was a monochorionic diamnionic fused twin placenta.  Does this in fact mean that they are identical?

There is genetic testing called twin zygosity testing that can reveal if twins are identical or fraternal. You can see a list of providers who sell this testing over the internet at AccessDNA.
