My mum and cousin have both been ban because of this. They had donated quite a few times before as well.
I haven't donated - but would like to start after I finish the pregnancy/breastfeeding cycle I'm on which has lasted the last 5 years so far! I have received quite a lot of blood after a bad motorbike accident many years ago and so I'm forever grateful to people who do donate.

I have never donated and I have really crappy veins for blood tests and a bit of a phobia after them having had trouble getting required blood in the past. But I'm getting over that after two full term pregnancies and a mc which all meant plenty of blood tests so I think I'd like to donate. Bubs just turned 9 months so my exclusion period has just ended after birth. Guess I should just do it!
I've never needed blood but came close after my first bub was born.

Do you donate blood? Have you ever needed Blood
I have donated a few times but haven't been able to for a few years (IVF, pregnancy, breastfeeding). I used to organise groups at work to go down to the donor centre every 3 months. I can donate now but need to wait until I kick this annoying bug! I have no issues with needles or anything like that but I do take aaaages to donate - my blood flows slowly! I'm ONeg so I get a lot of reminders.
Never needed blood myself.

2-3 times a year (when I'm eligible) especially because I am O-. My Dad is the same and I remember him giving blood when I was a child. I had two blood transfusions as a teenager.
DH donates once or twice a year too!
I donated last week, the UK is in desperate need of donors, especially types A, O and B.

I have donated but not received. I wanted to donate cord blood but DD came on a day that they don't do collections.
