Conjoined Twins and Yoledet


According to the Talmud/Gemara in Menachot 37a a firstborn Jewish boy with two heads requires more than the usual amount for Pidyon Haben. My question is, if a woman gives birth to conjoined twins (either male or female) is she yoledet twice as long in Halacha?



  1. No, the amount time was the same. If at least one of the twins was a girl it would be eighty days and if they were both boys the time was forty days.
