If you decide to go ahead with DNA testing in the hope of making contact with a donor, offspring or donor-conceived half sibling, you’re likely to go through many different emotions: anxiety, curiosity and excitement may all play a part.

Your feelings may change and perhaps become more intense after you have received the outcome of your DNA testing and it is important to bear in mind the implications of not finding, as well as finding, a link.

Here at the Donor Conceived Register we are able to offer you support from our team of counsellors as well as having access to valuable resources such as the Registrants Panel who run a closed Facebook group and provide newsletters.

We strongly encourage you to take advantage of our confidential counselling service (2 sessions are free and costed at £25 thereafter) which gives you the chance to talk things through in a way, and at a time, to suit you. This service is available at any time during your process. Please see further information on implications on what may discussed on How to Register.
