The Blood Bank called my husband and I about giving blood. We told them I had APS and the caller said that she would talk to her director and get back to us. She called back and said it was not a problem that I had APS. My questions are: 1. Is she correct? 2. How does giving blood effect a person with APS? 3. Does it actually help a person with APS feel better temporarily to give blood? 4. If yes to questions 1 and 3, does it matter if you give whole blood or platelets?
