Transsexual blood donor
By Dawn Ennis February 02 6: The policy in place since indefinitely banned men who have had sex with men from donating blood, but after years of lobbying from medical organizations, activists, and politicians, the FDA said the policy would be reevaluated. Later this year, the FDA is expected to officially lift the lifetime ban, and instead enforce a one-year ban following the last time a man had sex with another man, and remained HIV-negative. Over the decades, the agency has been under increasing pressure to alter its strict stance. This policy has nothing to do with the fact that many trans people undergo hormone replacement therapy HRT to aid in their gender transition.

February 04, , I was an apheresis platelet donor for about 12 years. Platelet donation is critical because it cannot be frozen and is usually given to someone withing 5 days of harvesting. It takes about 2 hours to take the platelets from the body. A line is drawn from one arm, goes through a centrifuge where the platelets and plasma are separated and then the red blood cells are returned in another line in the other arm.

FDA’s New Blood Donation Guidelines Offer Little Clarity For Transgender People
About Steve Follow Steve at stevenbwriting We all know that in many parts of the world, blood donation bans apply to gay men, but trans men and women also suffer under these kinds of bans — and with the added stigma of having their gender questioned and ignored. One woman who had to face this recently was Clayre Sessoms from Vancouver. Sessoms had regularly donated blood without any problems but, after arriving at a downtown Vancouver clinic earlier in May, faced questions about whether she had undergone genital change surgery. Sessoms informed the nurse that she had not. The nurse then left for a short while, before returning to tell Sessoms that the blood donation service would have to defer her donation.
Are you sure you want to delete this answer? Yes Sorry, something has gone wrong. Here in America, the Food and Drug Administration mandates this question. Blood is considered a medication.
