Has anyone donated plasma? I need some input and stuff.

I'm in desperate need of money, and am going to donate plasma. Anyone done this? If so, what should i do to prep for it? Does drinking water help...anything else?

  • there should be a lot better reading materials on this if you google it. that's true with any question on cafe mom though. my husband did it a couple years ago and has a HUGE indent in his arm from it. make sure it's enough money for the hours you'll be there. but donating anything is for a good cause, good for you. good luck.

  • i did it once a few years ago, but i ended up almost passing out halfway through, not b/c of anything done wrong just b/c i don't do well giving blood (have given blood before and passed out aferwards) so try to eat an orange and drink fluids before hand that is supposed to make it easier on your system. otherwise, it takes a long time to do it and if its anything like it was here it takes a few hours for it to even be your turn, so go early
