    Giving blood on cycle

    Can one safely give blood while on cycle? Not regular TRT but cycle dose. Usually give to control RBC There is a blood drive and with recent hurricane there is a need.

    now I'm wondering if they test our blood for T levels like they do for diseases. I give blood evey 56 days on TRT. It would not be good if I became ineligable because they tested for T and the levels were sky high.

    Meaning safe for yourself, or safe for the person who would receive your blood...

    I cant give now ...ive got a pretty bad cold, virus or whatever... no one needs that if they already need a blood transfusion.

    I did donate, I donate on a regular basis to control RBC, but never when taking more than a TRT dosage. Due to the hurricane it was much needed.

    Its fine even if they only gave your blood to one person the small amount that you donated would not cause a problem when diluted with all the blood in the recipients body. Also this of course is not the case your blood along with that of many others will be used.

    I took supplements like a mad man when I was a lot younger; 30 yrs younger ! Why do you donate blood to control RBC ( What is RBC ? ) Is a TRT dose high or low compared to a strength, muscle building, enhance workout, body building dose ? From what I took before and the reults I saw 30 years ago I am going to guess .5cc a week of cyp is a very low dose ?

    Still Why do you donate blood to control RBC ( What is RBC ? )


    If a man is extremly Low T say below 100 why would doctors give such a low dose knowing he has so far ro go ? How would a higher dose of Cyp or Enanatat effect the man with extremly Low T in a bad way ? Since the TRT is not a reach a level and stop . If I am informed correctly it is reach a level and maintain which will require weekly dose and to stablize the man with extremely Low T it will take more/a larger dose to maintain the correct level ? By the way what does the Medical community consider healthy level ? If peak is 1800 optimtal seems would be 1200 is this # accurate or could someone give a number that their doctor cosidered optiminal / correct/ healty level ? Important question to me please offer expericenced knowledge . I don't think I am seeking 2 yrs to reach a level of 700 ? Am I ?

    OP, you will be fine! They will screen your blood anyways, so if something isn't right they will pull it from the population. I do it of course while on HRT, and even with deca (nor19 compound), which I add a few times a year.

    Now, they will probably ask you something like, "Have you taken any steroids without being overseen by a doctor?", including other personal questions. Only you can determine how you will answer these questions.

    Where did you get that information from? Reason I am asking is because I am curious if they use that excuse to get more blood donations.

    Also, do not taint the blood supply with blood that is full of UGL gear. If you want to give blood to help, answer their questions truthfully. Certain drugs are known to cause birth defects. A lot of the drugs you use on a cycle haven't been studied properly. If you have injected UGL products then you will be disqualified from being able to donate. Answer truthfully on the questionnaire or lie. but please call them and tell them to discard your blood donation. Tell them you developed cold or flu symptoms.

    I think that they do like 6-7 tests on the blood before giving it to a patient. They test for bacteria or infectious diseases, not how much tren you are running. Although the hormones we use in a cycle may not have a long active life in the blood. But seriously, do you really feel good about giving blood filled with hormones to a pregnant mother which may cause birth defects? Please don't..

    I never give when on anything more than my doctor prescribed TRT. They ask so many questions and I don't want to lie about anything other than the "medication other than prescribed by a doctor in the past year" question. I feel bad enough doing that.

    In Canada we get a sticker yes or no lol....and a questionnaire beforehand.

    Moral issues come into play...but I'd fail that questionnaire on multiple spots if I was truthful. They don't even like TRT....so I just say no to steroids , adex, caber, accutane..etc....shit I fail that badly hah. Place a no sticker and the blood just gets trashed.

    I only do this because my blood would be too thick if I didn't.....but I do use the yes sticker if I'm just running everything TRT which is the norm, since doctor said it's fine and up to me if I want to lie or not to avoid questions or getting banned from donating.

    I gave blood on EC stack once....don't do that lol. I was freaking them all out since I got massive sweats when they took out the needle. They brought like 2 huge fans to me and a wet towel and got pissed when I made a joke about how cool if be if I passed out....but I wasn't close to passing out, felt fine besides sweating.

    For those of you worried about hormones or other meds affecting a donor, you're only donating roughly 1/13th of your total blood volume. Unless you have straight ****ing poison coursing through your veins or a virus, you aren't going to hurt anyone. And if you're on (a low dose of) Accutane or something else with a high risk of birth defects, do a double RBC donation, which just skims off the RBCs. Most drugs will be contained in plasma, not bound to blood cells.

    Good info. Thank you.

    If you would subject your child(fetus) to trenbolone 's metabolites for a couple hours you should get father of the year award. I mean, it's not like a fetus is sensitive to sex hormones during development... And it's not like it would be great if somebody got a transfusion where 90% of the blood is filled with different hormones.... Do you even know what you are writing? Oh I see, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger? So that fetus will be super strong after it's mother has been in surgery and received blood from 20 different steroids users. I am sure it would be very beneficial for the fetus. Edit your post as it is WRONG, UNETHICAL, and DANGEROUS. Unless it is "straight fvcking poison" it won't hurt a fetus... I didn't think I would see such a statement from you of all people Bonaparte

    That's way more than one question brother lol! Seriously though, it sounds like you are still needing to know a lot of the basics of HRT. All of your questions have been asked and answered a bunch of times I'm sure, because everybody is new at some point. You should just do some searches and read read read as that will help you learn much better than us just giving you straight answers. Reading all the stickies would help a lot , as well as some of them from the anabolics forum. It'll just give you a more well rounded knowledge on the topic as a whole. So many intricacies
