Blood donation
Hi, I'm 29yrs old working women. And I'm trying to get pregnant this year. August 31st was my last period date. But I missed that period. I still did not get my periods. The problem is that there is a blood donation camp on 5th of this month (coming sunday). Can I donate blood? Or when should I take pregnancy test? If result comes positive can I still donate blood? If it comes negative can I donate the blood?

UPT is most conclusive if done about 6 weeks from lmp or after about 7-10 days of missed periods. There is as such contraindications for blood donations in that early period of pregnancy.
