I have a question about giving blood while pregnant..... please read

I gave blood a few days before I knew I was pregnant. It would have been about 2 days before I was to start my period. Could giving blood effect the amount of HCG in my blood to give a strange pregnancy test result?

  • No I dont think it would effect the test results, but you probably shouldn't donate blood while preggo now.

  • Yeah, I know that you cannot donate blood while pregnant. I did not know I was pregnant. I had not even started my period yet to know it would be late.

  • Hmmmmm interesting. I have no idea if it would effect it. It seems to me that it would not but who knows? But on a side note, how great you donate blood! Good for you, I am sure there are people that are thankful for that. AND congrats on being pregnant!
