    no I'm afraid not. They'll ask you if you've used any drugs recently and if so won't let you donate.

    technically you really shouldnt give blood

    its an ethical thing

    however, if u do decide to give blood, wait until you have been off cycle for a few months

    10mg of test and 5mg of dbol in your blood wouldnt go down well with a premature baby, especially female, that weighs a kilo or less!!

    technically no you should not, but this is due to the risk of needle sharing etc etc and all the stigma that goes with injecting.

    if you have been off-cycle for a while I genuinely see no ethical harm to it

    Don't do it, because your Red blood cells are probabaly off the charts. And for a lot a people, this unacceptable.

    WBB999, it's up to you if you give blood - I certainly intend on doing at some point.

    Q. 14 at http://www.blood.co.uk/pages/flash_questions.html pretty much says 'No thank you' to bodybuilders who have jabbed at any point - Maybe this is more to do with HIV than anything else.... I can't see test cyp etc. still being in your blood 5 years after your last jab.

    They are however the experts though

    Had to giggle at this ... last week I went to give blood. Personally I am too early in my gym life to have done gear, so wasnt worried about that, but being a careful and concientious sort, when she asked if I was taking any drugs at the moment, I listed em all ...

    Multivitamins - fine, Glucosamine - no problem, ECA - thought about it for a couple of mins and then said fine as was over a week ago ...

    Tribulus - 10 mins of sitting in the waiting room while they phoned around diff people, looked in books, asked other blood centers ...... er.... ok we think.


    So basically if Trib freaks em out, then gear is a deffo no, for all the reasons listed in the posts above !! ad to share that one ... made me giggle ....
