Donating blood is one of the noblest acts that anyone can perform. Your blood donation can save lives of many people. In order to keep this life-saving process going on, blood donors are required to keep themselves fit and healthy. Blood donors sometimes donate too much blood in too short of a time and put themselves into serious medical problems including, but not limited to anemia, bruising, dizziness, and difficulty in breathing. This is where our Blood Donation Due Date Calculator comes into play.

The Blood Donation Due Date Calculator gathers information about your last blood donation date, your statistics including height, weight, and gender, and then results you the due date when you need to donate next your precious blood.

The male donors can give blood every 12 weeks and the female donors are eligible for blood donation every 16 weeks only. This is required to maintain a safe time interval between two blood donations. This donation gap enables one to regain a normal haemoglobin count. So, let the Good Times Flow!
