My daughter wants me to go to donate blood at the school blood drive next week. I haven't donated in years, because when I was 18, I got the HPV (genital warts) virus from a guy I was with (scumbag--long story). Anyway, I haven't had a breakout in about 5 years and had almost forgotten it was ever even a problem. So can I donate blood? Is the virus still in my blood and would it be communicable that way (through a blood transfusion)? I can't find any info on this on the Red Cross website. Anyone know?
