Have PCOs. Taking birth control pills. Recommended methods to increase the chances of conceiving twins?

Hi I recentley found out I have Pollysistic Ovaries I am now on birth control to get regulated again, I ve been on the pill sence December of 2011.I have three kids already and have seemed to have gotten pregnate with them only by being on the pill and then missing pills in between or not taking them at the right time everyday.My youngest will be 3 in September so the last time I was on the pill was before i got pregnate with her, after i had her I never got back on the pill and never had a period until I went to an OBGYN this last December and he s the one that detected my problem.I ve been doing a little research myself and my husband and I are wanting to have a couple more babies if at all possible to the point where we d really like to conceive twins and I d like to know how good my chances are, first of all I m 6 feet tall and somewhat overweight and have found out on my dads side of the family his dad being my grandfather was a twin and on my moms side I guess my mom had a cousin that was a twin and so did my moms mom one of my grandmas cousins was a twin.So what may I do to increase my chances?

family history can influence the chances of having twins to some extent but just because of that we cannot predict that whether you will definitely have twins or not,
as you are under treatment for poly cystic disease,
if you want to conceive stop taking contraceptive pills and go for ovulation induction drugs with your doctor's advice.
if you take the ovulation induction drugs in the early part of cycle means from 2nd day of periods to 7th day, there is chance for maturation of more follicles which can increase the possibility of twins.
take care.
