    Should I consider donating?

    My levels are not crazy high. My trt dose is very low (30mg e3days) no blasting.

    Hemoglobin 17 13.2-17.1 g/dL
    Hematocrite 52 38.5-50.0 %

    Yes, you should consider donating. Blood banks are rarely overstocked and the life you help save might be someone important to you. If you are on this board, you can NOT be afraid of needles

    Also, it will help nudge those numbers down a little, which is a bonus.

    I’ll also say yes. They’re not terrible numbers, though, imo. My numbers creep up even on TRT. They were 17.9 a couple of months ago when I donated. I donated again on Friday and they were 16.3. So it definitely helps

    Is there a point in a cycle you wouldn’t want to donate? Like, would the level of testosterone in your blood mess with someone it’s donated to?

    You only donate a pint. There are many pints of blood in the human body.

    It's not going to hurt you to donate a pint and you might feel better afterwards. Besides, you will save somebody's life by doing it.

    Highest mine ever was 20.6 I was red like a tomato constant head aches . I've had 4 pints drained in 4 years . I was at 16.8 last time and they took a pint . I'm hoping to get down to 14 maybe 15. I do seem to be cooler since they took the blood but I'm always hot

    Most definitely! I donated without having high or low numbers, all normal, but girl said it was good and she would to it regardless for someone else, so she inspired me.
    I was nervous, big damn needle and fast hands, and I felt NOTHING. Went like a charm.
    We choose a government hospital since they have less money, might keep that in mind.
    Girl has small veins so she got that blue green painful healing process after, bet the doc hit something, but healed in a week.

    Hospitals need blood, don´t just do it for bringing levels down, do it for someone´s future.

    I just assumed that it goes hand and hand w/hormone use. I’ve been donating on schedule since I began using Anabolics for TRT or otherwise. Have the app from the blood bank, since they post results to my profile after every donation it helps me monitor my cholesterol, hemocrit and blood pressure too. Besides like mentioned above helps others while I’m at it.

    What place do you donate with. I donate with the Red Cross but they only show my hemoglobin and blood pressure before donating.

    I’m in Florida, I use “One Blood”. They have constant blood drives with brick n mortar locations and buses. They will send me a notification when I’m elgible, I get on the app and it will show me the 3 closest locations to were I am currently. Usually one within 4-5 miles. Gave me a beach towel this last time, a tshirt and 20 Amazon card time before that. It almost doesn’t make sense lol. Cool company

    I need to move to Florida (again). That’s awesome that you get a basic blood panel along with donating. I use Red Cross cause it’s the only option I have here. The process your describing is how it works for me, too.
