1 Bump

so we have to go donate blood

cause were low on funds. i'm sure there are some things that prevent you being able to do this. on their site though i can't find the answers. everything just leads to donation place. can we donate blood if my husband has psoriasis and i weigh only 105 and haven't stopped breast feeding. although i can as my baby will be 12 months on the 11 and planned on stopping then. any thing else that would keep us from being able to?

  • Are you talking about donating plasma? Can you call the place first to ask these questions?

  • Plasma is paid for, blood is usually only by donation, and no you cannot be breast feeding or weigh less than 115 lbs!

  • as far as I know if you have been out of the usa within the last 12 months. And probably some other things I dont know.

  • If you've travelled to any number of foreign destinations--one of them is a certain part of Mexico--they don't want your blood.

    Are you getting paid for your blood or your plasma? They might have different requirements...

    Good luck!
