    Every 6-8 weeks or whatever the amount of time you have to wait. My blood gets thick quick. I went a year without donating and ended up having to have my endo prescribe a therapeutic draw. I went every 2 weeks for 2 months to get my shit right.

    I also didnít know that they charge you for it. I got a bill for over $800 after it was all said and done.

    Blood letting is an old practice and is super healthy tbh.

    By donating blood, you lower your CBC (complete blood count) and you eliminate some RBC (red blood cells). When you use AAS, you increase your CBC and RBC and in many cases that can cause increases in BP or dangerous levels overall. By donating regularly you keep a healthier level. Specifically this is important to an AAS user. The normal everyday person, its not as necessary per say if this makes sense.

    My problem is that the Red Cross in my area won't allow me to donate when my BP is high. I'm on BP meds(Metropol) and it keeps me in check but every other time I'm at the Red Cross, I spike high and they refuse me. I guess it's nerves. It sucks because then I'm banned for another 2 months. Those fuckers even refused me last week even though they are desperate for blood. Fuck them. I'm debating about learning to do it myself from my cousin who's a plasma tech.

    Yes definitely makes sense brother but my blood pressure stays around 120/78 on or off cycle. But im gonna do an experiment and start a thread when the time comes to show the difference if any for me going years using gear year round and never donating and then if thereís any noticeable difference/changes when i do it after a few times say 3-4. What ya think brother?

    This is a great idea. I always wondered if the blood donating was broscience. I understand that PEDs can elevate red blood cells. That makes sense. I just canít believe that the body doesnít self-regulate.

    I've learned the hard way on the benefits of being diligent with donating blood. I've had a total of six therapeutic phlebotomy sessions in the last six weeks, and am scheduled for a seventh this Friday. My last donation was 18 months ago and within that time I've ran two cycles, including Eq and tren. I have always known the benefits of donating, but I just didn't make time, so I have no one to blame but myself.
    One positive that came from all this, is that I got to see how long it takes for HCT levels to fall back within range. I attached a screenshot of my last six. Kaiser only allows the last six results to be displayed, the seventh was at 61%

    The questions and waiting take longer then the donation process itself. If you donít have to wait and have an appointment itís way better.

    Donating varies per person. Mine could flow very fast 3-4min where as someone else could flow slower maybe 5-7 min.
    Itís not that bad just dedicate 1hr out of your day.
