I have donated blood twice this week. Some said not good to donate so frequently. I thought its upto individual's health and anyway people at red cross should know if one is in condition to give blood. Thats my assumption though. The question is, is it ok to give blood frequently, like twice in a week?

It really depends on you. As long as youre doing it for pleasure and not profit you should be okay. Also keep in mind that you may be giving all this blood and they may not have that much demand for it, and after some time it can go bad, in which case you should probably ask for it back.

The actual blood donation takes between four and fifteen minutes for whole blood donation. Donors are discouraged from heavy exercise or lifting until the next day. Plasma volumes will return to normal in around 24 hours, while red blood cells are replaced by bone marrow into the circulatory system within about 3-5 weeks, and lost iron replaced over 6-8 weeks. This recovery process can be speeded by eating foods high in complex carbohydrates, iron, and other trace minerals. Due to the time frame required for iron replacement, donors are eligible to donate whole blood approximately eight to twelve weeks after the previous donation (the exact period varying by country); in the USA, the waiting period for the two red cell units apheresis donors is 112 days.

Dear Sue,

Don't think so, title of this thread is somehow irrelevent to the posts.

Bloody Week.

Did you inform them that you have already donated blood that week ?

How much I know, one should donate once in 3 months and unless its very urgent doctors also do not accept blood donation before 3 months.

And I think in the form, there has to be some field to fill by you, about your last blood donation date ??

Don't think so.

btw, I failed to inform about my previous donation. and I felt little bit uncomfortable after second but I just ignored. Later I enquired at red cross about the incident and they apologised and advised to fill the form properly. Thanks guys.
