Worries about who the father is
Sometimes, I worry if my husband is the father of my child. I feel like there is a sense of distance that grows between us day by day. The other day when I went to a family gathering, one of our relatives commented that our child doesn`t really resemble my husband. I know that I am overthinking things, but I just cannot get rid of these negative thoughts.
It‘s true that it is difficult to determine who the father of an unborn baby is among multiple men that had relations with the same woman within a short time period just based on the woman`s menstruation and ovulation cycle. （Judgment of Parent-Child Relationship Based on Menstrual Cycle）Wouldn`t you want more scientific evidence?
Aren`t DNA tests a really big deal?
Paternity teststhat compare DNA from individuals to determine a parent-child relationship can provide answers to scenarios like the one above.
Nowadays DNA tests are fairly common and are not considered such a `big deal.` Personal DNA tests that a client chooses for their own peace of mind can be done very discreetly. Sample collection is simple, as only cheek swabs from the child and alleged father are needed. Sample collection can be done in the privacy of your own home, and there are a variety of possible sample types that can be used for testing. The sample kit is sent by post, and mailed back to the lab for testing in prepaid packaging.。
You can see our What Can be Used as a Sample? page for more information about possible sample types.
It is also possible to have the DNA Sample Kit sent to a location of your choice, such as your home or office, or even held at a local post office for pick-up. Our main method for correspondence is by email, so you can receive your test results and check them from your smartphone and print them out at home. Nothing will be sent unless the client has specifically requested it to and gave directions on the location and method.
The fact that you have ordered a DNA test from us is not shared with anyone, so you do not need to worry about neighbors or coworkers finding out. Furthermore, we only disclose information about the test with the original applicant. Even if someone who participated in the test contacts our office, we cannot share any information with them.
