Go to blood bank: At the blood donation center they will screen your eligibility. In my experience, the most frequent reason to be vigilant is iron deficiency -- from frequent blood donation and/or in women coupled with heavy menses or recent childbirth. Oral iron supplements are an easy way to correct this but be sure you know why the iron was low- bleeding from ulcers or polyps or cancers needs exclusion. ...Read more

By distraction: You can wear headphones and listen to music, or read (just hard to turn pages), or people watch during the donation. Most people only require 10-15 minutes of actual "needle time" to donate a unit of blood, so you can also think about the 3 people whose lives you are saving with your donation! ...Read more
Unclear Q, but...: Whole blood donation is every 56 days. A pheresis machine can collect 2 units of red blood cells at one time, returning other components--this can be done every 112 days (2x as long as single).

Higher risk group: ONLY as a population-based screen, not suggesting any personal life-choice issues, men who have sex with men are more likely to have certain stds, including hepatitis and hiv, which can be transmitted by blood and MIGHT be missed by testing if at an early stage or lab error. So to keep blood supply as safe as possible, the entire group is excluded. I am not aware of any exception to this rule. ...Read more
Yes: HPV is a localized issue like a wart (it's cousin).It does not travel in the blood. There would be HPV antibodies in the blood, but these would protect, not harm a potential recipient. In a donor center you would be asked to read through information about donor exclusions. The will also usually have you answer a computer assisted quiz about infection exposure, etc. HPV is not in these questions. ...Read more
Yes: As long as well managed and stable, so that aspect will not be a problem. If on oral hypoglycemic, (like glyburide), better to donate early in day and take med late so it does not cause potential problem for recipient. Should not be a problem. ...Read more

You have to be in good general health, and if you are on antibiotics, even if feeling better, should not be donating until a few days after you are off of the antibiotics. It is safer for you and the recipient--as may also cause an allergic reaction in the recipient if allergic to the antibiotic meant for you.
Tune up your health a bit first, then call the red cross to set up a donation. ...Read more
