This study asks the question: how do families with children conceived using donor sperm operate as the children grow up? And looks into the state of these relationships.
The follow-up of children conceived through the Anonymous Donor Sperm project was designed to assess the adjustment of families conceived by donor sperm when the children were 5–13 years of age.
Several studies have followed children conceived from donor sperm, but they all have had methodological limitations. They tend to involve small and uncontrolled samples and their focus on young children, low response rates and reliance on mother-reported data are other drawbacks.
