Hey all,

After recieving a negative result at 12 weeks, I was assured on here that it was safe for me to donate blood (and I am sure that is correct!). So I donated for the first time today.

My quick query is that if I recieve a donor card (card they send out that lists your blood type) in the mail is it safe to assume that my blood was indeed fine (as it well should be after a 12 week negative) and I won't be getting any scary phone calls later in the week.
I would assume they test your blood type at the same time as they test for pathogens and thus, would not send out a donor card if any abnormal results were returned.

correct .... Allthough your 12 week test should allready be considered definite.

HIV shouldn't be a cause of concern anymore, you have conlusively tested negative for it.

probably you are correct about the donor card!

Goodluck
