my daughter has had 2 dna test's with her dad they both came back saying he wasnt the biological father, only i know that its not right, i am going out of my mind its making me feel bad,my daughter is heart broken as she got to know him for a few weeks what could be the reason for the results coming back wrong twice?
The only way a DNA test could be wrong is if your daughter has a very rare condition in which she has 2 sets of DNA, called chimera. People with chimera have 2 sets of DNA in different parts of their body. DNA swabbed from the inside of the mouth can be different from DNA collected for a hair follicle. If they took DNA from multiple locations and tested it against her father's and it came out that they weren't a match, then he is not her father. DNA tests are very accurate.
