I’m using testosterone patches or receiving testosterone injections. Can I donate?

If your medication was prescribed by a doctor registered in Australia, you can donate.

In some cases, testosterone may cause your haemoglobin levels (a protein in your blood that transports oxygen) to increase to above the acceptable range for donation. Don’t worry, though — we test your haemoglobin level before each donation and if it’s within the acceptable range on the day, you can donate.
