    Re: Donating Blood

    You can donate on cycle but, don't tell them you're on test or anything, don't mention the cycle or anything or else they will deny you. Be honest about where you've traveled and hiv/aids and I think that's it. Anything related to your cycle don't mention it, they filter out all that stuff out of the blood anyway. I go to redcross.org and found my local center through there.

    I'm O negative blood type so I'm a universal donor and my blood is in very high demand and low supply. So I give blood routinely to do my part.

    Re: Donating Blood

    I also donate blood every three months due to having high hemoglobin, being on TRT for the past 4-5 years I have been very active in donating blood for a few years. No I don't tell them about anything, also if you read the fine print if your using HGH they won't allow u to donate also, even if you are using Rogaine.

    Can donate while on cycle, but tell them not to use it? Correct.

    Tell them you are on? Nothng

    Dont tell them you are on? Correct - and GH disqualifies you as a donor for LIFE

    How to fill out paperwork? They will walk you through it it's pretty straight away

    How often to donate? Red Cross- every 56 days, Life South every 8 weeks

    How to find donation stations?Look online, strat looking for bloodmobile signs, ask in your gym, check you local high school
    Donating blood is a win win. Don't be afraid a decent phlebotomist can make the stick damn near painless and you will feel better after you donate. Some organizations will email you your cholesterol and RBC counts etc.

    Re: Donating Blood

    Just donated few days ago
    I told them nothing about needle use

    Every 3 months or so. No, do not acknowledge that you are on cycle. As Vette said, is win-win as your blood is still usable after processing.

    It's your diet... but with that being said, most gear will increase your red blood cell count (Hematocrit Level).

    "Since most steroids outside of DHT and Proviron are at least moderately potent anabolics, they should therefore also be relatively effective at increasing red blood cell concentrations."

    Donate and keep quit about your activities. Once they draw your blood there's a hotline you call in case you come down with the flu. They'll throw away that blood and boom ethical issues solved.

    Your doctor should be monitoring your blood levels but the benefit of giving blood while on aas is not getting an enlarged heart or having a stroke.

    Re: Donating Blood

    Benefits to having O- blood, never have to make an appointment to give blood where I go.

    Benefits to thalisemia, my hemoglobin are smaller than the average persons so steroids just put them more in the normal range instead of throwing them above the high end.
