    Donating Blood On Cycle

    What is the house opinion on giving blood while on cycle.

    Currently running Test E 300mg and Tren E 250mg a week.
    Addex .25mg EOD

    Last time I ran my BP spiked up and I had rushing noises in my ears. I donated blood 30days ago, two days after I started this cycle.

    Would it be advisable to donate again towards the end of this 12-13 week cycle?
    Why shouldn't I?

    You can donate whole blood every 56 days, double RBC every 112 days.
    Blood Donation Eligibility Requirements | American Red Cross

    I strongly encourage anyone who is eligible to donate, whether on cycle or not. At the very least you're helping someone else and it doesn't take much time.
    If you do a double RBC, some donation centers prefer you schedule an appointment, but the donation center at the hospital closest to me will take a double RBC at anytime, if they aren't busy.

    I agree with this but I also think you should be running labs to determine what's going on with your hormones. Then you can look at your crit level and determine if a blood donation is needed

    Blood work and blood-letting. The best things you could do for cyclers.

    Every 60 days for this guy, cycling or not. Definitely helps alleviate the lethargy when on.
