After a miscarriage, you must wait at least six months before donating blood. An early miscarriage (less than the 8th week of pregnancy) does not prevent blood donation.

Women attempting to become pregnant are advised to avoid blood donation, since those hoping to become pregnant should keep up a good haemoglobin level.
