Blood Donor ??
Apr 9, 2007

HELLO DR BRIAN , CAN I GO AHEAD AND BE A BLOOD DONOR AGAIN SINCE I'M OUT OF THE CLEAR FOR HIV . BEEN TESTED PASS 6 MONTHS ALL NEG , THANKS

Response from Dr. Conway

This will depend on the rules and regulations of the blood bank facilities where you live. In some cases, to make sure the blood supply is completely safe, people who are at risk of HIV infection cannot donate blood, even if they continue to have negative test results for HIV. I would check this out before you go to donate blood.
